Chesterfield Historic Town Site

The Chesterfield Historic Town Site is situated in the foothills of Idaho's Portneuf Valley, between Lava Hot Springs and Soda Springs. The village is along the Oregon Trail, and is one of few places of that time period that remain. The Mormon pioneer town was founded after Chester Call traveled through the valley in 1880 in search of grazing land. He returned the next year with his family to settle a small ranch. It was only a matter of time before he brought friends and family and a town formed there. You can visit 27 structures, including the meeting house, which is now a museum.

Where to Camp

Camp at the Portneuf Bend Campground, a short drive northeast of the hot springs.
