Visit Island Park, Idaho
Island Park, Idaho is filled with both summer and winter activities – enjoy all the conveniences and charm!
Get a two-for-one display at Mesa Falls! These spectacular falls are actually two displays about half a mile from each other. Head out to the Upper falls and enjoy a ride that follows Henry’s Fork of the Snake River. From there, stairs take you to the dramatic overlook almost at the top of the falls for a closeup look at the brink of the falls. The Lower Falls are also impressive but you don’t get as close to them as the Upper.
There is a $5 parking fee unless you have a pass to park at the Upper Falls.
Sawtelle Peak Tour
Take in the view at the top of a 10,000 foot peak with the Sawtelle Peak Tour. From your vantage point you will be able to see RedRock RV Park, Henry’s Lake, the Teton Range, and the entire greater Yellowstone Region. What a view! On a clear day, you can see for 100 miles in all directions!
Do it for the ‘gram! The best photography of Henry’s Lake is later in the afternoon. This is a can’t miss opportunity.
Visit the source of Henry’s Fork of the Snake River on this leisurely trip to Big Springs. Enjoy the bubbling water that flows from underground springs that originate from the Yellowstone Plateau. You can also enjoy the sight of the large trout that congregate under the bridge looking for a snack.
Leave the boats and fishing rods at camp. There is no fishing or boating here.
Harriman State Park
Harriman State Park lies in the heart of a 16,000-acre wildlife reserve in the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem. This sanctuary is home to a diverse range of birds and mammals similar to those that live in the nearby Yellowstone National Park. At the park, enjoy hiking, horseback riding, fishing, and nature.
Head west on Highway 20 south of Island Park. Harriman State Park is about a 26-mile drive from RedRock. There is a $5 vehicle fee.
