About Island Park
Formed by a caldera thousands of years ago, the volcanic soil and local springs produce some of the most fertile land in the world. Aside from Yellowstone itself, the Henry’s fork caldera is the largest in the entire world and the only caldera to be plainly visible. This historical landscape is home to blue ribbon trout streams and other wildlife. A prized stop for adventurers everywhere, Island Park is one of Idaho’s best kept secrets. In the summer, Island Park is a destination city for anglers looking to catch trophy trout or families vacationing at resort ranches. Others may come to ride horses, hike or bike in the mountains or camp next to a stream or lake. Many come to see the Bald Eagles, grouse, Sandhill Cranes, songbirds, raptors, waterfowl, large and small mammals and wildflowers.In the winter, the area is a wonderland. The forest has over 500 miles of snowmobile trails and groomed trails for snowshoeing and Nordic skiing.
