Idaho Outdoor Association


Welcome to the IOA! 
Our Mission and Objectives are: 

  • To promote and encourage stewardship of the wildlife, habitat, and recreational resources of the state of Idaho.  

  • To encourage good sportsmanship, ethics, and responsibility in outdoor activities. 

  • To conserve, protect, and help maintain both public and private property used for recreational purposes. 

  • To promote and encourage healthy outdoor activities. 

We believe that anyone who participates in outdoor recreation of any kind should be willing to help protect and improve the natural resources of the state of Idaho. 

General meetings are held at our hall at 7:00 P.M., the second Tuesday of each month, October through May. 

Our meetings are free, open to the public, and refreshments are encouraged.

The Idaho Outdoor Association is a chartering organization for a Scouting Unit. As more information becomes available we will provide an interest page and schedule a parents meeting. This Scouting unit will focus on outdoor recreation, conservation and outdoor ethics in alignment with the IOA mission.



IOA Annual Campout in Atlanta

Friday, May 20, 2022, 5:30 PM – Sunday, May 22, 2022



Join us for this year's annual Idaho Outdoor Association Campout in Atlanta. The main attraction will be a group hike on the Middle Fork Boise River Trail. Other activities will include camping, socializing and possibly a soak in a local hot spring.

Participants will need to provide their own food and lodging. Our group will be at the Beaver Lodge in Atlanta. This is where you can find us to connect with the group. Camping is available within a mile of the Lodge at the Riverside Campground or Just a little further down the road is the Power Plant Campground, which is also a good option. 

Meet us at the Beaver Lodge on Friday, early evening for refreshments, or on Saturday morning at 11:00 am to join our hiking adventure. 

Please sign up on the events page.
