The Wood River Valley is a region in south-central Idaho located in Blaine County. It is named after the Big Wood River, which, like the Little Wood River, flows through the area.

The valley has four incorporated cities: Bellevue, Hailey (county seat), Ketchum and Sun Valley. It is considered part of the larger Magic Valley region, but differs from it economically due to its ties to the tourism industry, with less of a dependence on agriculture than that seen in the southern Magic Valley proper.

The Wood River Valley is home to the Sun Valley Resort in the north end of the valley. The region also includes large portions of the Sawtooth National Forest and the Sawtooth National Recreation Area
