Island Park in Danger?

April 2nd, 2010 · No Comments

Island Park, Idaho, is the birthplace of Henry’s Fork.  Henry’s Fork begins in Big Springs, and flows through the town, to Last Chance, where the river then flows into Harriman State Park.  Highway 20 roughly follows the river, and the town of Island Park roughly follows Highway 20.

Is Island Park in danger?

Island Park is 33 miles long, and only 500 feet wide. There are only several hundred people that call Island Park “home” in the official census form, but its many thousands have their hearts there.  The physical population does swell during fishing season.

Being that long and skinny, with all those fishermen. Is Island Park in danger of tipping over? Will it capsize?

I’m worried.
