The Lucky Peak Reservoir Recreation Area just minutes from downtown Boise, Idaho. It's a great place for water skiing, swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling and fishing. Sandy Shores below the dam has a nice beach for sun bathing and a shaded picnic area to enjoy as well. There are several camping areas nearby and by Idaho City, an old mining town less than an hour from Boise. There are still several historic sites/towns from the days of the silver rush and placer mining in southern Idaho.
