Where to Stay
Our favorite place to stay in Jerome is at the Jerome KOA. This luxury KOA is fully equipped with a pool, dog park, and lodging to suit any needs. Cabin rentals are available as well as RV parking spots or tent camping. They serve breakfast and have options for lunch and dinner. It is a full functioning campground with restrooms and showers. A great hotel to stay in is the Best Western Sawtooth Inn & Suites because it is located right in the city of Jerome.
What to do
Hiking and sight seeing can be done easily from Jerome! Drive to the Snake River Canyon, south of town, to explore waterfalls and the river. Drive north to Shoshone and take a tour through an underground lava tunnel called Shoshone Ice Caves! The caves are filled with feet upon feet of ice even in the summer months, making it a refreshing exploration.
