Things to do

Tourist attractions near Island Park vacation rentals

Venture away from your Island Park vacation rental for a day trip to Yellowstone National Park – the park’s West entrance is just 30 minutes away – an ensemble of canyons, lakes, and mountain ranges, housing grizzly bears, elk, and wild wolves. Once there, see the Old Faithful Geyser, which erupts every 90 minutes with plumes of hot white water. Back in Island Park, see the Johnny Sack cabin, a log cabin and adjacent water-wheel hand crafted by one of Island Park’s earliest settlers. The cabin is based beside Big Springs, a spring and river famed for its enormous rainbow trout.

Activities

Things to do near Island Park vacation homes

Drive slightly north of Island Park and discover Henrys Lake, a vast deep-blue mountain lake surrounded by snow-capped peaks. In summer, Henrys Lake is an angler’s dream, as its pristine waters are full of cutthroat and brook trout. Alternatively, rent a boat and peacefully drift across the glimmering lake, and spot serene swans and swooping sand hill cranes. If you're traveling to Island Park in winter, rent snowmobiles and race across the sugary-white snowfields of Harriman State Park. This park, with its pine forests and meandering trails, is perfect for cross-country skiing, too.

Day trips

The attractions of Idaho Falls are ideal for a day trip from Island Park.

Weather

Local weather for your trip to Island Park vacation homes

Island Park has a unique microclimate, attracting around 3 times as much rain and snowfall as neighboring areas at the same elevation – this contributes to Island Park’s excess of flourishing meadows, marshes, and forest. If you want to hike, fish, and camp, book an Island Park vacation rental in summer – this season is balmy but not unbearably hot, with frequent rain showers. The long winters, from November to April, are deep and cold and bring snow and ice – perfect for cross-country skiers, and for cozy evenings reading beside your cabin’s fireplace.

Natural features

Flowery meadows and surging mountains

Island Park is an oddly-shaped town – it is narrow but very long, stretching 33 miles from north to south. The northern end of Island Park spans across Henrys Lake Flat – a flat-bottomed valley crisscrossed with streams and covered in meadowland – and up to Henrys Lake itself. Here, you’ll find the area’s most spectacular mountain peaks – Mount Jefferson, with its abundance of creeks and red prairie-fire flowers, and rocky Sawtell Peak, crowned by a radar dome. Island Park also enjoys rich and varied wildlife, including majestic elk, moose, and trumpeter swans.
