From the parking lot, hike north along a small channel of the Snake River about 350 yards (320 m) to a large beaver dam. Beaver constantly work to enlarge and reinforce their dams. They are most active around dawn and dusk. When the wind is calm, the pond reflects the central Teton Range framed by spruce and cottonwood trees. At one time, enough water flowed through this channel for boats to launch at Schwabachers Landing. Today, the river has shifted course-preventing boats from accessing the river here.
This area is popular for wildlife viewing, scenic photos and weddings. To plan a wedding in the park, please visit our website.
