The Minidoka Visitor Center is currently closed to the public for the season.

The visitor center is scheduled to reopen on Friday, May 27, 2022. Summer visitor center hours will be Friday, Saturday, Sunday from 10am – 5pm MT. When the visitor center is closed, the site's grounds and walking trails remain open daily from sunrise to sunset. Brochure maps and passport stamps are available in the after-hours box outside of the visitor center.

Ranger-led Tours

Ranger-led tours of the site will resume on May 28. Guided public tours will be offered from 11am – 12:30pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

Walking Trails & Self-Guided Tours

Visitors can walk along the 1.6 mile trail and around historical buildings, such as the barrack and mess hall in Block 22, on a self-guided tour. Outdoor exhibits along the trail allow visitors to learn more about life at Minidoka. Park grounds are open daily from sunrise to sunset.

Keep safety in mind as you explore the site. Bees, snakes, and other wildlife may be present. There is little shade along trails, and restrooms may not be open on weekdays. Water is available at the visitor center daily.

Recreate Responsibly

While the listed areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, a return to full operations will continue to be phased, and services may be limited. When recreating, please follow local area health orders, practice Leave No Trace principles, and avoid crowding and high-risk outdoor activities.

The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. We will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.
