Beautiful Area

We went to this park almost daily. It is nestled along the river and provides picnic tables and bbq pits with a scenery to enjoy!

Passed by this area on a road trip. The lake is very scenic. We stopped at a couple of places along the shoreline to take photos, and had a picnic at a marina.

After spending 8+ hours on the road we wanted a place where we could burn off some energy for our three kids. Bear River was great! We played soccer near a volleyball pit. Our little one loved the playground. We also hiked one of the paths. Excellent!

saw an Elk with antlers that i thought were the branches of a tree. Also many Bison including there young. I really enjoy viewing animals in their natural environment. Be sure to visit the Ranger Station next to the Bison open range area. This area also has a walking and bicycle path, paved, along the river, very nice

Everytime we go to Evanston we have to go to Bear River State Park. There are bison near the park at the welcome center with elk. The wildlife is amazing and so beautiful. There are so many great pathways to go walking and/or hiking. Very beautiful walk near the river. You can spend all day here. Make the trip out... More

This was a nice little park. Couldn't really see the Bison. The visitor's center was really nice and they gave us info on things to do in Yellowstone. Visitor's center had lots of animal displays, you must see it!

That's why we stopped. But it would be good for families with children, "older/wiser" folks just wanting to walk paved paths, grab elder paths along some of the river where you can sit and quietly watch birds... Good place for picnic gathering... Nice welcome center...

Always like to see the wildlife they have there but was disappointed this time that the buffalo weren't there. We did see them on the mountain though on our way out of town.

Clean, small park with several picnic tables near the river. Saw a male and a female elk but no bison.
