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.

Cave Falls

Cave Falls is just 1 hour and 10 minutes away, in the Bechler Meadows Area of Yellowstone National Park. It’s the only part of the park that you enter through Idaho via Ashton, Idaho. When you leave Ashton, you travel approximately 18 miles on a road which takes you through farm fields and mountain meadows to the picturesque Cave Falls on the Fall River. For the hiker just downstream from the Falls are several trailheads. These trails are for hikers and non-motorized access.

From this vantage point, you can look to the north down on Henry’s Lake to the south down onto Island Park Reservoir.

Earthquake Lake

Earthquake Lake is just 40 minutes away and was formed when an earthquake caused the entire side of a mountain to fall away from one side of the canyon and go up the other side of the canyon and then come to rest in the bottom forming “Earthquake Lake.” This happened in August 1959, and to this day you can still visit the lake museum to get more historical information.
