Dance lessons can be arranged and enjoy the museum quality displays of western memorabilia.

Soak in sacred Indian hot springs.

Do you know what a cowboy might have given for a good hot bath? A natural draw was, and still is, our abundant hot pools. An oasis of pleasure and supposed miracle cure for all that ails - and, by darn, just makes you feel good all over!! It is said that the Indian tribes considered the pools to be a sacred neutral ground, a singular place where people of all tribes could abide in peace and soak in harmony. Just 30 minutes from Pocatello is such a soaking ground nestled in the quaint city of Lava Hot Springs.

Fort Hall Replica & Museums

back to top

Fur Trade / Lewis and Clark ExperienceFort Hall Replica & Museums

The Fort Hall Replica is a wonderful display of period lifestyle and replicates one of the northwest's earliest fur trading forts. On the same location as the fort is a wonderful park area with shelter and stage. Adjacent to the fort complex is our Pocatello Zoo and the Bannock County Historical Museum. The zoo is comprised of animals native to the area including grizzly bear, bison, bighorn sheep and cougars. The Bannock County Historical Museum is an enjoyable complement to your day at the Fort Hall Replica and Pocatello Zoo.

The Shoshone-Bannock tribe hosts a marvelous museum and gaming hall less than 10 miles away. The museum curator is always a joy to listen to as she shares her native culture. And as a reminder - Sacagawea was a Lemhi Shoshone and her descendants still live on this reservation.
