Ritter Island State Park Reviews & Ratings
Came down a steep road, past a hydropower plant to the unprepossessing entrance to the park. Had a great hike here. Trails were not taxing but the views were spectacular. On two side of the island, you can see where two. bodies of water come together, creating two toned water. You can walk around the island or follow some trails on the other side of the bridge which are "primitive." Great place to see women wildlife too. Not much shade though.
Great place to beat the heat. If you go early you can take a cool walk around the old farm on the island. My kids love floating down the spring looking at the fish.
Very beautiful place. We took our wedding pictures here since we had a very small marriage ceremony at our church. We just went there again on Mother's Day and it was packed. The island part was closed (opens Memorial Day to Labor Day) so we hiked around the Snake River until the bushes got too thick for our bare legs/shorts. We got some good pics and a couple videos of the water/waterfalls!
We went here yesterday for 4th of July. The grandkids had a great time on a float in shallow water. They still obviously still need supervision, but much safer than most rivers. We brought our own tables. Good thing, because of the holiday, there were none available. Lots of shade and a great place for a family picnic.😊
Absolutely gorgeous! Family friendly trails, historic site, and clean stream. Picnic tables, shade trees and an abundance of waterfalls! 4 wheel drive vehicle recommended.
