Camp, Hike, Mountain Bike, and Sled

Eagle Park is a little urban oasis. Once you drive in, you may forget that merely 1 block ago you were in town. You can camp, picnic, throw rocks in the river, fish, mountain bike, or just go for a walk. There is a nice little path that easily connects the park to the Nature Park as well. All sites have picnic tables, fire rings, and tent pads. Just off the main parking lot is a nicely mowed grassy area that is a popular dog park.

Tenderfoot is a mountain bike trail that runs back behind most of the campsites. It's built for mountain bikes but usually great for a nice quiet walk as well, and arguably the best way to see the park. The trail is maintained in part by Free Arenas. If you have any feedback about the park or would just like to get involved, email trailbuilding@freearenas.com.

Sledding New in 2018, there's a sledding hill area just off the main grassy area. It's a terraced hill with a couple set runs and then quite a bit of open hill as well. Elevation is only about 20 feet from top to bottom but there's plenty to keep kids busy for awhile. There's even a more difficult run that includes jumps and drops for snowboards.

This is a community service project of the Free Arenas, Madison Lions Club, Trails of Madison County, and numerous Eagle Scouts in the Targhee District of the Grand Teton Council, BSA. Constructed 2001-2005.

Picnicking is free but there is a fee for camping. Overnight camping fee is $10.00 per space via a dropbox. All fees are used for future picnic tables, restrooms and other park improvements. The camp fee for boy scout troops may be waived as long as they perform an approved 1 hour service project to the park while camped here.

Please respect the flora and fauna and practice the Outdoor Code.

Never modify trail features. Ride trails when they're dry enough that you won't leave ruts. Speak up when you see others on the trail and always yield to hikers, horses, and others coming uphill. Always ride on the established trail.

Be courteous, informed, and prepared. Read trailhead guidelines, stay on the trail, and don’t feed the wildlife.

I love that this is so close to town, but seems like an escape. It makes it a great place to picnic. If I had family coming to town I would totally recommend they camp here. Often there is big wildlife, like moose and deer, along the river. My kids love going there to skip rocks. And at the end there is a great place to watch airplanes come and go. We felt really safe when we camped there. The only down side is sometimes it really smells bad.
