Conveniently located off Interstate 86 with one and a half miles of frontage on Stock Trail Road, this property is ripe for rural development. Formerly a dry farm, the terrain is level to a gradual slope with some draws, allowing panoramic views of the nearby Snake River and a habitat for wildlife viewing. The property is subdivided into three contiguous parcels with a two-track dirt road system providing access throughout. One hundred twelve acres had been in CRP for 30 years and just came out of the program this past fall. Private agricultural land borders the property on three sides, limiting hunting pressure and creating a habitat for mature mule deer and elk.
Snake River and Massacre Rocks State Park access are directly across the interstate and about a mile away, drawing outdoor recreation enthusiasts and history buffs alike.
The 990-acre park is a history-focused, year-round public recreation area along the Snake River, featuring Massacre Rocks & Register Rock, famous spots along the historic Oregon and California Trail.
Geologically, the park was created during the repeated volcanic activity on the Snake River Plain. The rocks were deposited in their present location at the end of the last ice age, during the Bonneville Flood, when much of Lake Bonneville surged down the Snake River. A notch in the cliff on the north bank of the Snake was the site of an ancient waterfall in the aftermath of the flood. This notch can be seen from the property.
The park offers historical and geological exhibits in its visitor center, a scenic picnic area surrounding Register Rock, rock climbing routes, a disc golf course, a campground, and boat docks for day-use access to the Snake River for fishing, boating, and swimming.
Explore miles of trails along the Snake River canyon and preserved sections of historic Oregon and California Trail hiking, biking, and cross-country skiing. Thousands of wagons that passed this point carved the deep ruts that lie before you.
You can explore the river upstream toward American Falls or head back downstream through the park. Across from the campsites, you’ll find Beaver Island and Goat Island. Further downstream toward Register Rock, calm, marshy streams and protected coves offer a variety of fishing spots. In addition to bass, Massacre Rocks is home to rainbow trout, perch, carp, Utah chubs, and white sturgeon. There is abundant high desert wildlife, including Canadian geese, grebes, bald eagles, pelicans, blue herons, coyotes, muskrats, beavers, cottontails, and jackrabbits.
Additional nearby attractions include American Falls Reservoir and historic hydroelectric dam, Minidoka Falls, Minidoka National Wildlife Refuge, Rupert Country Club golf course, Rupert Historic District, and Minidoka County Historical Museum.
