Idaho Fish and Game

Accessible Idaho

Access to Idaho's Outdoor Recreation

The Idaho Fish and Game Department encourages everyone to experience Idaho's wild outdoors. We have an active program to improve opportunities and access to hunting, fishing and wildlife viewing sites for persons with disabilities. Fish and Game is committed to following ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards and working with groups that promote access to the outdoors for persons with disabilities.

Partnerships with private landowners, Idaho counties and federal and state agencies allow us to incorporate accessible designs into facilities for hunting, fishing and wildlife viewing. We want to be proactive in promoting equal access to Idaho's bountiful outdoor resources and encourage suggestions on how we can make Idaho more accessible.

The sections listed below provide specific information about accessible opportunities throughout the state.
