When we parked our car, we saw a huge shelter with picnic tables. We first had to cross the wooden bridge. We had a great view on the river. Some people were enjoying the river by sitting among the rocks that were in the river....More

I walk my dog at the Bear River Park almost daily. It is a beautiful, peaceful place to walk along the flowing Bear River. If I am really lucky, I see moose, deer, rabbits, etc. There are 3 beautiful elk and a herd of bison...More

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.

Mini TR: Airport Days & Bear River Rendezvous 08/28/10 (5 Replies)
Our family just moved to Evanston Wyoming from Page Arizona. Having spent the last week painting, moving furniture, and all the usual stress and strain associated with moving, we were ready to relax a bit. Fortunately, there was no shortage of activities to choose from in Evanston this particular weekend. First on the agenda: the “Airport Days” Airshow and Fly-In at Burns Field.
