Luck Peak State Park is a state park in Ada County, Idaho, United States, located around Lucky Peak Lake, created in 1955 by the construction of Lucky Peak Dam.
Just east of Boise, the park has three units; its Discovery Park off State Highway 21 is a roadside park with picnic tables, shelters, and opportunities for fishing in the Boise River.

  • Great place for paddleboarding. Easy to get in and out. Great place for beginners and family friendly activities.

  • A fascinating drive thru the "foothills" along the river and reservoirs. Drive at least to the Dam. If you are inclined, go up the hill toward the Steele Bridge

  • Such a great destination, just 25 minutes from downtown Boise! Picturesque both the drive and the park itself, gorgeous backdrops paired with a soothing sound of running water. Please make a reservation for their bbq area ( theirs is a big gazebo to guarantee plenty of shade ) for group parties! There’s a fantastic walking and biking path that is smooth and protected with a rail on one side. Bathrooms were clean and the daily fee to use the park was seven dollars. Make sure to bring cash for the service fee. So go, what are you waiting for! You won’t regret it!
  • I was out exploring being new to the House area. I have a 5mo old pup who lives to run... This was the perfect spot to let him have a little exercise. After Oct your dog can be off leash....providing he plays well with others. Very few people so it was great to let him explore
