Island Park Idaho  has become   a destination in its own right,  but since it is so close in proximity to Yellowstone’s  west   entrance, many Yellowstone visitors choose to find accommodations here .  There are a  few   Island Park hotels from which to choose .  Angler’s Lodge is  a nice hotel    right on the Henry’s Fork river   in the Last Chance area, and provides rooms with 1-2 queen beds priced  from $159-$179 for summer rates.   Guided fishing trips are available from the lodge.   In the Macks Inn area  is Macks Inn Resort, which  has    riverside    units   from $89-$140.  Near the golf course, toward the north end of Island Park,  is Sawtelle Mountain Resort.  This hotel provides economy single queen rooms to deluxe double queen rooms  from $89-$119 nightly during the summer .  If you are  searching for  luxury in a hotel, about 45 minutes south of  Yellowstone is Henry’s Fork Lodge, with average summer rates of $400 per person per night.   3 gourmet meals per day are included in the pricing. 

If you  think   Island Park Idaho hotels might  cramp your style, consider joining the many visitors to the Island Park area who choose to stay in a privately owned vacation rental.   This is a great choice for larger groups especially,  who want to stay together and not be split up into multiple hotel rooms.   For those wanting to cook their own meals and have the seclusion of a private cabin, this is an excellent choice also.    Island Park cabins range  in price from  the mid $100’s per night to the mid $800’s   per night, depending on size, quality of lodging and amenities. 

A group of 10 can  stay in a nice cabin with granite countertops, gas fireplace, and hot tub for as little as $200 per night.  This can be a huge savings compared to staying in hotel rooms, which usually have a maximum occupancy of 5.   Added  savings are realized  when the price of going out for every meal is compared to the cost of cooking one’s own meals at one of the cabins, all of which have fully-equipped kitchens. 

 Larger groups may realize even greater savings when staying in a cabin rental.     Private vacation rentals   are available  with as many as   8 private bedrooms.   Even the most expensive of rental cabins would only cost each couple in this situation $100 per night.    Most of the larger cabins also  have hot tubs, HDTV, and even billiards for great down time during stormy weather or after a long day in Yellowstone.   

Most of the  Island Park rentals also have outdoor porches or decks  with patio furniture, gas grills, and  even fire pits for roasting mallows.    These  amenities provide  added opportunities  for relaxing socialization and enjoyment of the natural surroundings.       

Whether you choose a hotel or vacation rental, Island Park Idaho is a great place to bring the family this summer and create incredible memories!
