South Fork of the Snake River: Conant Boat Access

This BLM site features a concrete boat ramp and separate raft launch facilities. There is a large pool to launch boats and a back channel for rafts. The river has roller coaster waves and turbulent water upstream. Motorized boats beware of the gravel bar in front of the boat ramp.

There is a small visitor information station with displays which is staffed part-time during the summer season.

Users of this BLM site are required to fill out a self-issue permit and pay a parking fee ($3.00). This site is equipped with flush and pit toilets, some shade, water, picnic tables, trash cans, and seasonal hosts.

Day use only, no overnight camping.

There are several camping sites along the river corridor (see attached map below) and there is an overnight self-issue permit station at this facility--users can view and print permit before going as well (see attached permit below).
