Area Attractions

The Oregon Trail Bear Lake Scenic Byway and the National Pioneer Historic Byway cross paths in Soda Springs. The scenery is breathtaking and history runs deep.

The Pioneer Historic Byway traverses through southeastern Idaho’s Franklin and Caribou Counties. The 127-mile corridor begins at Idaho’s oldest town of Franklin on the Idaho-Utah state line and winds northward through rich historic and cultural sites, ending at the Idaho-Wyoming border.

Step back into history with Pioneers and experience a simulated adventure along the old Oregon Trail. This interpretive experience features historically accurate interpretive areas and live actors. Patrons will go back in time to visit a gun shop, mercantile, ride in a covered wagon and spend time around the evening encircled wagon train at the Clover Creek Encampment. All found at the Oregon Trail Center.

Pioneering Adventures is all about Dutch Oven Dinners, Handcart Treks & Pioneer Entertainment. They will take you back to the mid 1800s through music, dance, and story telling.
