Is there a visitor center at Minidoka?
Where do I get my National Parks passport book stamped?
What is left at the site to see?
Most of the site's structures were removed after WWII ended. The barrack areas were plowed under and used as farm fields;so not much remains of the original camp. If you do go, you will see the remains of the entry guard station, waiting room, and an ornamental rock garden. There is a 1.6 mile walking trail, informational panels,a reconstructed guard tower and the Honor Roll. The buildings that are at the site are open to the public when the visitor contact station is open (10am to 4pm).
What happened to all the buildings from the camp?
After the war, the camp’s buildings were dismantled or relocated to be used as houses, storage, and more. Former Minidoka War Relocation Center buildings can be found throughout the Twin Falls area and beyond.
Can I camp at Minidoka?Camping is not allowed in Minidoka National Historic Site but there are numerous camping facilities in the nearby communities. Picnicking is allowed at the site, pack it in - pack it out. There are no established picnic facilities (tables, etc.) There is one handicap accessible port-o-potty on site.
