Thousand Springs State Park is a state park of Idaho, USA, consisting of five units in the Hagerman Valley. In 2005 as part of a master planning process, it was decided to combine four existing state parks under a single new entity. A fifth unit has since been added. The units as they currently stand are Billingsley Creek, Earl M. Hardy Box Canyon Springs Nature Preserve, Malad Gorge, Niagara Springs, and Ritter Island.
This former ranch was purchased by the state in 2001. One feature is the homesite of western author Vardis Fisher. Billingsley Creek Unit totals 286acre.
This 350acre box canyon has 250ft walls. At its head is the eleventh-largest spring in North America, gushing 180000gal per minute. There is a 20ft waterfall. This 350acre property is in development and is co-managed with The Nature Conservancy.
Malad Gorge is a 250ft canyon formed by the Malad River, downstream from a 60ft waterfall. This 652acre day-use-only unit is just off Interstate 84 and offers hiking and picnicking. A section of the Oregon Trail is visible. Rock pigeons, red-tailed hawks and golden eagles nest in the canyon. Yellow-bellied marmots are found on the canyon floor.
