We always come here when we're in Wyoming. Really nice place. It's a really pretty trail and you usually end up seeing deer or moose depending on the time of year.

Great hiking trails, friendly people, bison and elk viewing areas--just a great hidden gem of a park just off the interstate. Perfect place for a stop over or a quick camping getaway. Grocery store is nearby, also.

Stop over in Evanston on April 15/17 and had time to visit the Park. Bear River wonders through the Park and some lovely walks along the banks. Bison and elk in the Park enclosures and make for good viewing. Worth a visit.
