Bear River State Park reviews
Cross country drive takes its toll so this was a nice place to stop and walk. We also saw animals including elk, bison and great birds. more »
We did not see any bears, but we were surprised to see a beaver really close to his den. Lovely place to walk, everybody was respectful to keep their distance. more »
We had a nice walk with our dog (on leash) for about a mile maybe more. There were a couple spots along the river where our dog could swim. The walk way is concrete ... Cool on the dogs feet. I dont know how long the trail is but it sure was nice! This was our 1st visit ... More to come!
Great stop off route 80. Opens at 8 am. Great spot to stretch your legs and eat your lunch/breakfast Once you arrive go past the bathrooms and park in the next lot. There you will find a trail that crosses the creek and opens up to several more gravel easy walking trails.
