“where the buffalo roamed!”

Bear River is a year-round park that offers nearly 300 acres that are ideal for picnicking, hiking, wildlife viewing, group activities, bicycling, skiing, rollerblading, remote control cars and many other activities. The park is home to a small head of captive bison and elk kept for public viewing. Three miles of foot trails are within park limits. They include 1.2 miles of paved trail and an arched footbridge that crosses the Bear River. Another 1.7 miles of packed gravel trails are on the of the west side of the river. The foot trails in the park also double as cross-country ski trails in the winter, weather prmitting. This park is for day-use only: no overnight camping is allowed.

Got a great tour of Bear River State Park after stopping in Evanston for an overnight auto repair on my way to California. Evanston City Councilman Christine Thatcher, who also owns the repair shop, was an AMAZING person and gracious tour guide, helping me get a room at the local inn, taking me to a local Rotary Club meeting for lunch with the locals, then showing me the impressive Bear River State Park, where buffalo and other wildlife casually sauntered around in the very sunny, but crisp Fall air. I'll forever remember this park, and the wonderful people of Evanston, because of my new friend Christine.
