So much to do near Valley View RV Park Campground
Johnny Sacks Cabin
Big Springs & Johnny Sacks Cabin is just 20 minutes away from Valley View RV Park Campground. It’s located at the Head of Henry’s Fork of the Snake River where the river virtually bubbles out of the ground through blue, black and white sand. Nestled in the trees at the head of the springs is a log cabin which is on the National Historic Register. A very talented German immigrant built the cabin in the thirties, and everything in the cabin is handmade, even down to the lampshades which are made from animal skins. Two miles downstream from Big Springs, you can float the river all the way to Macks Inn, approximately a three-hour float trip through the forest on very calm water.
