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.

Sinks Canyon Climbing Areas Reopened

Perfect flying weather today helped in finishing Sinks Canyon's cheat grass management project early.

The closed climbing areas are reopened and ready for visitors effective immediately. 

The closures were originally expected to last through August 23.
