The Yellowstone-Teton area of Idaho around Rexburg is an outdoor-lover’s paradise. Here are four options for travelers heading to this region in the eastern part of the state:


There are a number of spots where anglers can cast about year-round—Ririe Reservoir and Roberts Pond are two—and Henry’s Lake is popular for fly-fishers during its May-to-December season.


While the lengths and difficulties of the trails may differ, paths such as Wind Caves, Golden Lake, and Cress Creek all feature views of beautiful peaks, meadows, and bodies of water.

ATV tours

Just west of St. Anthony there are hundreds of acres of sand dunes. The steep sands, as well as other nearby landscapes, are popular for ATV enthusiasts.


With the famous Grand Targhee Ski Resort leading the way, eastern Idaho offers plenty of downhill slopes that delight ski buffs.
