Seagull Bay

2594 Seagull Bay Rd, American Falls, ID 83211



This last weekend, Butter invited some new friends to paddleboard at Seagull Bay on the American Falls Reservoir and had a great time. We arrived around 1:00pm and found plenty of room for us to hang out, including a picnic table in the shade. Right away, Butter met new friends including two dogs and people of all ages. We spent over four hours paddleboarding, cooling off in the shade, fetching and playing in the water. This hidden treasure is only a few miles from the freeway, dog friendly and perfect for all water sports.

Seagull Bay included many great amenities such as a clean bathroom (with shower), playground, picnic table, grass and plenty of parking. Parking cost $5.00 per car and dogs must be leashed at all times. You can bring your boat, kayak, paddleboards or just go wading with easy access to the water. Butter enjoyed the large space, beautiful views, fun water play and opportunities to meet new friends.

Butter is getting good at being on the paddleboard. Love these warm, calm waters at Seagull Bay!

When visiting don’t forget, enough money to park, plenty of towels, yard games (stakes for horseshoes are already in the ground) and blankets/umbrellas in the rare case that the table or shade is unavailable. If you plan on launching a boat, taking a shower or camping, small fees will apply, so bring extra cash. Plan on a full or half day outing because you will not want to cut it short when you are relaxing and enjoying views! Seagull Bay also includes a small RV park, if that fits your needs. Always remember your poop bags and to leave the area cleaner than you found it!

Butter gives this place 4 paws up and a nap…because by the end she was ready for a full nights sleep!

It was not long before Butter was asleep in the back of the car.
