We needed a quick stretch and stopped here on our way through. It is a nice visitor center and next to it is a small herd of bison. It looked like there was a nice picnic area close by too.

The tables and grills along the beautiful Bear River are perfect for a relaxing meal. Anyone with children will love to show them the bison and elk which you can see easily from the road.

We stopped here recently and enjoyed looking around in the visitors center and looking at the bison herd outside. A good little stop as you are passing through.

Ran from the hotel to Bear River SP. There were a few miles of paved trails to run on, all of which was along the River. We saw the bison in the park. Ran once in the afternoon and saw others, ran early in the morn and had the park to ourselves.

They have a small herd of bison( they aren't buffalo). They were wondering around and the babies were real cute,regardless of the fact that they are as big as a VW bug. There is also great picnic spots, and wonderful scenery.

If you're traveling along I-80 and need some time to rest this is a beautiful location. Lots of wildlife to see, a river that runs through and there are plenty of walkways, trails, playgrounds and picnic areas and restrooms to take advantage of.

Beautiful afternoon!! This was great little adventure for the nieces and nephews. They got to walk along the river and dip there toes in. The enjoyed seeing the wildlife and had a nice picnic under one of the pavilions. It was the perfect way to spend a relaxing Saturday.

Great place to walk along the river. Beautiful scenery. Nice friendly people along the route. We saw deer grazing in the field. It was a wonderful time.
