Things To Know Before You Come
Hagerman Valley was formed 14,300 years ago by the Bonneville flood, which gouged out canyons, moved house-sized boulders and left enormous sand bars. The Valley's landscape is dotted with a amazing number of melon gravels giving silent testimony to the colossal flood.
Today the town offers a number of services including: 2 service stations, 3+ restaurants, a bank, and a grocery store, as well as a number of little shops.

Lake Bonneville overflowed its rim about 15,000 years ago in southeastern Idaho near the present day city of Pocatello. The Snake River cut down through the ancient flood plain sediments and deepened and widened the Hagerman valley.
