Highly recommend this as a stop for weary travelers. We viewed elk and bison - even were lucky to watch baby bison playing and romping. There is a great exhibit of area wildlife in visitor center, clean restrooms, and pet area.

Bear River State Park is a day use only park. Unfortunately we do not have any camping facilities available.
