Lodging & Regional Attractions

Pocatello and Chubbuck offer lodging at all levels and price ranges. With more than a dozen hotels and motels, this area offers large on-site accommodations and banquet facilities for conventions and seminars, as well as intimate, theme-oriented lodging. For those wishing to camp or park recreational vehicles, there is everything from a full service KOA to more rustic camping, such as on Scout Mountain, at our fairgrounds or at Massacre Rocks State Park.

We are along the historic Oregon/California Trail. There is an Oregon/California Interpretive Center in Montpelier, where travelers can take a simulated trip on the trail and see trail artifacts in the museum.

Another museum on the trail is located at Massacre Rocks, just west of American Falls along the Snake River where original trail ruts can be seen. Nine miles north of us is the Shoshone-Bannock Indian Reservation, where a museum of Indian history can be visited, and traditional ceremonies are held at various times of the year, and handmade Indian wares can be bought at the Trading Post. The restaurant offers Buffalo meat that is grown by the tribe. Also, trail ruts can be seen.

At the end of a long day, soaking in Lava Hot Springs, fed by natural underground springs at the rate of three million odorless gallons a day all year long, offers unparalleled relaxation. During the summer months, enjoy an award-winning Olympic AAU world-class swimming pool, complete with a 33-foot diving tower and conventional diving boards, as well as two exciting water slides.

This is also home to a premier ski area–Pebble Creek, which offers 54 runs on 1,100 acres. They have updated their beginner ski lift from double to triple seating. In addition to the regular services one might expect of a facility of this caliber, Pebble Creek also works with the Cooperative Wilderness Handicapped Outdoors Group (CW HOG), an Idaho State University-based program for skiers with disabilities, to provide creative equipment and methods to help them ski.


The Portneuf River Greenway laces through the city, following the Portneuf River, for those who would like to hike along a scenic marked trail, most of which is paved and much of which is also shaded. Maps of the Greenway are available at the Visitor’s Center and the Chamber of Commerce, as well as at a number of other locations within the city.
