Exultant has Buffalo elk in enclosure river running through it. Fishing Hiking camp sights no over night camping. Lots of walking paths and bike trails. Lots of fun.

Good hiking park. Would be a great place to have in your backyard to hike with dogs. The river was peaceful in the early morning. Also a great picnic location. Nice stop on a long drive from NV to and from Colorado

Beautiful area, with recreation and a nature fix. Didn't get to see any wildlife (other than the human kind). Might get a bit crowded with large pickups and other rec types of vehicles.

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.
