Lucky Peak – a simple day trip

Lucky Peak – Just a Short Drive Away. Lucky Peak State Park is the perfect place for swimming, picnicking, fishing, boating or biking. Sandy Point and Discovery is a 10 minute drive from Boise and Springs Shores Marina is 40 minutes away. I’ve been cooped up in my apartment for months now. Today I finally forced myself to get up to Lake or Reservoir for what it is by definition and whether I feel good or not It’s going to happen, well I made it and the effort paid off.
