Canyon County is located in southwest Idaho, and includes the cities of Nampa, Caldwell, Middleton, Parma, Wilder, Greenleaf, Notus and Melba.
Just miles out their front doors, Canyon County residents can enjoy mountain peaks, desert plains, rocky canyons, natural sand dunes, hot springs, open meadows and mountain lakes.
“The valley is surrounded by the Owyhee, Weiser and Boise mountain ranges that rise steeply to 8-9,000 feet above sea level … surrounding the Treasure Valley. The slopes are partly covered with sagebrush, which gives way to chaparral, then to ridges of fir, pine, spruce and juniper. Recreational activities are a highlight of Idaho and … provides access to a variety of enthusiasts from rock hounds to river rafters, skiers to hot springs lovers, trail riders to hikers and much, much more.” - Caldwell Chamber of Commerce
