Situated along the Snake River, Celebration Park was established as Idaho’s only archaeological park in 1989. A walk through the huge basalt melon gravels deposited by the Bonneville flood reveals petroglyphs 100 to 10,000 years old. Visitors learn about the Paleolithic and Archaic lifeways and enjoy throwing a dart with an atlatl. Experience a walking tour of historic Guffey Railroad Bridge and be captivated by southwest Idaho’s early mining and railroad history. Archaeological sites are protected by state and federal law. Please be respectful of Celebration Park’s unique archaeology and cultural heritage. Celebration Park is on the western border of the Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area (NCA), which is managed by the Bureau of Land Management. For NCA visitor information, visit their website. The Snake River Islands near Celebration Park are part of the Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge’s Snake River Islands Unit. Visit their website for information on rules and regulations, and habitat management practices on the islands. Video On a gray and breezy Sunday morning, members & friends of Back Country Horsemen of Idaho Squaw Butte Chapter meet at the trailer parking area of Celebration Park along the Snake River.  The weatherman had promised a nice day for a ride, but at 10:00 people were skeptical.  The  group  numbering  over 25, broke into two teams and when they were ready rode a 10 mile loop following the cliffs while heading east and the river back west to the trailers As the day progressed the weather improved the sky turned blue and when we were all back at the trailers was darn right nice. After taking care of the stock, finger snakes were broken out and everyone enjoy both the fare and the conversation.
