My wife and I enjoyed the quick pit stop and walk around at Bear River state park. We took a photo op with the buffalo (bison). We like the easy hike near the river as well.

Awesome place to see wildlife. You can hike the concrete trail all the way from town to the park. See wild animals from elk and bison, to moose and bears. Especially if you visit the visitor center museum on season. The visitor restrooms are open...More
