What Is Eagle Island ?
Saturday night I was having dinner with friends when one of them mentioned that they were taking their kids to Eagle Island. I immediately asked... What is that? and why haven't I heard of it before? I mean I've lived in Boise for a total of 4 years, you would think that I would be familiar with it but that was definitely not the case. Where have I been all this time? Talk about missing out, apparently Eagle Island is a winter playground where you can go tubing, ski'n and boarding with your family and friends without having to take a 4 hour drive up to McCall or ride a bus up to Bogus. Don't get me wrong I love a McCall weekend but if you're looking to do something fun with the kids or with friends for a few hours this is the spot. Check out their IG @gatewayparkseagle and you're gonna want to make a reservation asap. If you just moved here or are like me and just hadn't discovered this family fun spot, you owe it to yourself to check it out. See all the particulars below compliments of their website GatewayParks.com
