Three Island Crossing - Oregon Trail pioneers knew this spot well. It was one of the most famous river crossings on the historic trail.

Three Island Crossing State Park is located on the Snake River at Glenns Ferry. It is home to The Oregon Trail History and Education Center where visitors can learn about pioneer emigrants and Native American history.
