May 2024 Update:

Beginning May 23, 2024, the Visitor Center will return to 7 days a week, 9 am – 5 pm.

Ritter Island offers excellent opportunities for photography and birdwatching. Nestled alongside the picturesque Snake River, between two magnificent springs, the property provides a sense of serenity and solitude – the perfect venue for small events and weddings. The site will continue to host the annual Thousand Springs Art Festival that it has become famous for and offering the public the opportunity to tour the existing historic structures.  

There are two perfect houses on the island that can be rented for families wanting to experience the property’s charm.
