Gooding County is the namesake of Frank R. Gooding, former Gooding mayor, Idaho State Governor, and U.S. Senator. Situated entirely on the Snake River Plain, it is home to spectacular geological phenomena and a series of small, thriving communities. The cities of Bliss, Gooding, Hagerman, and Wendell each boast exciting and unique activities and events for all.
The Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument and Thousand Springs State Park be found in Gooding County. Unparalleled opportunities for fishing, boating, hiking, bird watching and more make this area a must-see.
