Close to Awesome Wildlife

Here the Targhee Forest and Henry's Lake is host to a lot of wildlife .

Early and late season affords the greatest views of local wildlife but you'll see an eagle, hawk, pronghorn, or even moose anytime during our season. The key is to keep your eyes looking on the forest edge, or out in the sagebrush for some exciting finds. That's not hard to do because we are literally a hundred yards from the forest's edge and less than a mile from the lake.

RedRock RV Park is in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. This 26 million acre ecosystem boasts the greatest concentration of large mammals in the US outside of Alaska. We are summer home for many land and bird species too. Look for many of these mammals and birds around us:
