Once traveled by emigrants on the Oregon Trail, this ford made it easier for overland travelers to cross to the Snake River The area is now home to a state park and the Oregon Trail History and Education Center. The area offers a variety of educational programs throughout the year, as well as opportunities for camping from primitive campsites to cabins, Each year since 1985, the town of Glenns Ferry has held a special ceremony in August that honors the Oregon Trail emigrants by reenacting the famous crossing of the river in full period-appropriate attire and replicas of wagons used by travelers along the Oregon Trail.
