Summer fun in Island Park includes a variety of activities. Depending on your creativity, energy level and your vacation budget there is something for everyone! We hope these suggestions help. We have a list of "area attractions to visit" provided via email when you book your stay.
A personal recommendation to everyone is the Yellowstone Playhouse located less than a mile south of the cabin on Highway 20. A family friendly live dinner theater that includes a GREAT meal and a night of laugh-out-loud, 'til you cry fun! Visit www.yellowstoneplayouse.com and make a reservation. You will not regret it!
There are plenty of places to ride in Island Park. There are designated trails including the original railroad bed that ran from Ashton in the south to West Yellowstone in the north. Bring your own or rent machines to get off the beaten path and enjoy beautiful Targhee National Forest. Rental businesses include: Island Park Adventures, Mountain Mayhem, and High Mountain Adventures. Each business will provide trail maps. They can rent ATVs, Side X Side UTVs and safety equipment.
There are lots of beautiful places to hike in Island Park. None of them are extreme and all are family friendly. Try going to Mesa Falls, Sawtelle peak, Big springs trail, Box Canyon trail, and Harriman State Park. For more information go to http://www.alltrails.com/us/idaho/island-park.
Floating the Rivers
There are a couple rivers in Island Park fun to float. None are "white water" rafting, but calm, scenic floats that are so enjoyable for all ages. Macks Inn offers rentals for the nearby river (no rapids) but to float the Box Canyon portion of the Snake river or the Buffalo River you will need to bring your own inflatables. Macks Inn Adventures will transport you upstream to the top of the river. To see the cost of rentals go to http://www.macksinn.com/.
