About the Pioneer Country Travel Council


The Pioneer Country Travel Council is supported by the Idaho Travel Council. It is funded through a two percent (2%) tax on the sale of hotels, motels, and private campground accommodations. We promote tourism in Region 5 which includes Power, Oneida, Bannock, Bingham, Caribou, Bear Lake, Franklin Counties.


Pioneer Country Travel Council - Customer Service Video Series

Do you serve tourists in Southeast Idaho? If so, have your employees watch our Idaho State University's Continuing Education Workforce Training Customer Service Video Series! It gives an overview of the importance of Idaho’s tourists and how we can help ensure they enjoy their time in Southeast Idaho.
