This is a scenic waterfall in Island Park, about an hour from the cabin. It is accessible to those with physical limitations and offers some hiking trails for the more adventurous. There is also a great forest ranger station with pelts from the local animals that allows visitors to touch. Great place to take a picnic.

Mack's Inn River Floats. This is a great place to rent a raft, canoe or inner tubes and float down the river. Sometimes you can see the salmon swimming by. It’s a great place to enjoy the serenity of nature (if no one is screaming in delight) You are likely to see large animals come to drink and even Osprey and other birds of prey in the trees.
