RS29924C2 / H0103
Every year, in rapidly increasing numbers, residents of the state of Idaho and non-residents enjoy the
recreational value of Idaho's state parks. There are inherent risks in the outdoor recreational activities provided
within the state parks which should be understood and assumed by each visitor. The inherent risks in the
recreational activities undertaken by park visitors are essentially impossible to eliminate by the Department. It
is the purpose of this idea to define the area of responsibility and affirmative acts for which the Department's
parks shall be liable for loss, damage, or injury, and to define those risks for which the visitors expressly
assume and for which there can be no recovery.
This legislation will have no impact on the state's General fund or any dedicated fund or federal fund because
the legislation is intended to save taxpayer money.
