In Idaho tourism now outranks other industries in revenue, mostly becuase the natural beauty of Idaho's mountains, rivers, lakes, and streams provide camping, boating and fishing sites, and they collectively bring in tens of thousands of visitors each year.

As far as the overall economy, the Snake River has been diverted by dams to provide irrigation for Idaho's agriculture. Only three states have more irrigated land than Idaho.

The state produces about one fourth of the nation's potato crop, as well as wheat, apples, corn, barley and more.
