About Our Site - Sinks Canyon State Park


Sinks Canyon State Park is located in west central Wyoming just south of Lander, WY. The park is situated in the Wind River Mountains on the middle fork of the Popo Agie River. The site is named after distinct geologic phenomena in which the Popo Agie river disappears into a limestone cavern and reappears a quarter mile down canyon in a placid pool filled with 8 - 12 lb. rainbow trout. The site has a variety of natural habitats which creates diversity of flora and fauna. The canyon provides a variety of recreational opportunities including nature studies, photography, camping, fishing, hiking, world class rock climbing and access to miles of mountain bike trails.

Closed campsites, swinging bridge reopened at Sinks Canyon State Park

            Previous temporary closures at Sinks Canyon State Park have been re-opened.

            Tent camping sites next to the river in the Popo Agie Campground, and the swinging bridge, were temporarily closed due to high water concerns last week.

            Those areas have all reopened and Sinks Canyon staff will continue to monitor the water situation in the Popo Agie River.
