Downey, established in 1894, is located in Marsh Valley, a beautiful high mountain valley in the southeastern corner of Idaho.
This quiet little community of approximately 600 people is nestled below impressive 9,200 foot Oxford Mountain just south of Downey.
Downey has two public parks and an RV park with a dump site. Just three miles south of Downey is Downata Hot Springs, a family water resort with swimming pool, water slides, camping facilities and picnic area.
Downey is the home of the South Bannock County Fair in early August. This Fair, a little bit of country fun, is an experience you won’t soon forget. If you enjoy quiet, peaceful atmosphere of country life, with the majestic Rocky Mountains as a scenic backdrop, Downey is for you.
