Harriman State Park lies within an 11,000-acre wildlife refuge in the greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Moose, Elk, and Sandhill Cranes are common, as is North America's largest waterfowl, the Trumpeter Swan. Known as one of the best fly-fishing streams in the nation, the Henrys Fork meanders for eight miles through Harriman. Over 20 miles of trails are available for hiking, biking, horseback riding, and cross county skiing. Guided horseback tours are offered by a park vendor, Dry Ridge Outfitters, 208 354-2284 .
History of the Area
Owned by Union Pacific Railroad investors from 1902 to 1977, the park acreage served as a cattle ranch and private retreat of the Harriman and Guggenheim families. Today, Harriman State Park provides the perfect setting to enjoy the park's unique history in a beautiful natural setting.

During the summer there are regular tours of the Railroad Ranch buildings. Fishing, hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking are other ways to experience the beauty of the area. Don't forget to bring your camera. There are breath-taking wildflower displays in the sage meadows and pastureland which dominate the landscape. Visitors often see elk, deer and moose, particularly in the morning and evening. The views of the Teton Mountain Range are spectacular.

During winter months guests can enjoy Nordic skiing and the Jones House warming hut-open on weekends, offering views of the Henrys Fork, bald eagles and trumpeter swans.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
December 6 My own private Idaho by Alex Gaston
I had a great time. Truly one of the most beautiful spots in the world. I am glad my children got to see what I had when I was their age.
September 21 Breathtaking!! by Amy
Harriman Sate Park is wonderful in every season. I often come during the fall and witness the elk rutting season. It is amazing with migratory birds, less people and the amazing sounds at sunset and after of the mating elk. I love this place and have seen moose, eagles, swans, pelicans, bluebirds, bats, snakes, all sorts of ducks, an Ibis !!!, osprey, blue heron, and elk. Come and pay your fee to support this majestic place. Also, in the summer - take the tour of the houses & ranch. You can also stay here overnight! What an incredible history - from Harriman to the Guggenheims.

July 10 Breathtaking! by ColoTrvlr
I stopped by Harriman on my way for a stay in Island Park at Sawtelle Moutain Resort and just hiking through this park in the Island Park Valley was a refreshing and breathtaking experience. Listening to the wildlife as I enjoyed the streams and the lakes was an awesome experience without the crowds of Yellowstone. It was my own private Idaho and with all the beauty and tranquility of the Yellowstone National Park area.
