Take the most scenic route to Yellowstone on Hwy. 287/26. It's about the journey—not the destination. Wyoming's Wind River Country offers an experience for the adventure and the bold. There's a whole lot to see, even more to do, and the freedom to explore it all. Wind River Country is home to 53 peaks over 13,000 feet and over 400 lakes and reservoirs. It's worth the journey.
Stay in luxury or sleep under the stars. Below you will find lodging opportunities for every budget and every vacation experience. Choose a mountain hideaway, working cattle ranch, in town locations or bring your own RV.
Wind River Country has an international reputation for its outdoor recreation opportunities. With over 300 days of sunshine a year, almost every day is perfect for an adventure. Experience Native American dancing and powwows, the 1838 Mountain Man Rendezvous, rodeos, festivals and more. The Continental Divide Snowmobile Trail is rated as one of the "best in the west".
Few places can lay claim to a culture as rich in western lore as Wind River Country. Travel along the Oregon Trail, visit an old gold mining town, see Sacajawea's gravesite on the Wind River Indian Reservation and drive our 2 Scenic Byways. Togwotee Pass crosses the Continental Divide at 9,658' and Wind River Canyon shows millions of years of geology on its towering cliffs.
