In 2012, Canyon County acquired Map Rock, a famous Idaho petroglyph, and 34 acres of surrounding cliff-side property. This is an undeveloped site on Map Rock Road with very limited roadside parking due to property ownership constraints and difficulty of terrain. Canyon County Parks plans to develop interpretive information about the Map Rock petroglyph, which will be available at Celebration Park in the future. We recommend that anyone interested in learning more about Map Rock inquire at the Celebration Park visitor center, or call 208-455-6022 for more information.

Year round, dawn until dusk.

No fees are at this park.

From Nampa, travel south on Highway 45. Turn right on Map Rock Road. Travel 7.3 miles to Map Rock, located on the right side of the road.
