Park your car North of the downtown area and make a walk along the Bear River (Western part of the Bear River State Park). It is a quiet area. In the summer you will feel refreshed after an early morning stroll.

Some visible wildlife on day I visited. Fresh snowfall probably chased everything but buffalo into cover. Nice facilities, undoubtedly would be perfect for a picnic or BBQ weather permitting.

While visiting family, we went to Bear River State Park to walk the river trail. The park has a nice trail system and the trails are easy to hike. Before we left, we saw a few bison and elk. This is a great spot for family to gather for a picnic and a little exercise.

Driving west across Wyoming there is a lot of not much to see. Arriving at Evanston, there is a small Bear River State Park, a special "river walkway" along the Bear River. There is a small herd of American Bison and a very small herd of elk. It is a nice park-like setting. A walk along the river walkway is... More

Fun place to explore with families and you can't beat free! You can play in the river, walk/bike/run the flat trails across the river. See the bison and elk in the enclosures or if you are lucky (and safe) the moose the frequent the park. Nice picnic areas, restrooms and playground. Great place to stretch your legs while traveling -... More

It was free to get in, lots of things to see. There was food to purchase. They had a candy cannon for the kids that shot candy out of a cannon. Very friendly people and place.
