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 State Park Schedules Master Plan Public Meeting

A public meeting regarding Phase II of the Sinks Canyon State Park Master Plan is scheduled for November 5 from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Lander Library, Carnegie Room.

During the master planning process over the past six months, Sinks Canyon State Park staff has been collecting information, feedback, and ideas about ways to both enhance the visitor experience at the park and preserve its resources for future generations to enjoy.  

Many opportunities and challenges have been identified at the park, but additional public input is needed at the open house to help move the master planning process forward.

"The master plan will help ensure that Sinks Canyon State Park is well-positioned to meet the needs of our visitors for the next twenty years, while simultaneously protecting its valuable natural and cultural resources," said Chris Floyd, State Parks District Manager. "This open house is a great opportunity for the public to make their voices heard regarding the future of the park." 

People of all ages are encouraged to attend the open house and share their preferences, values, and vision for Sinks Canyon State Park.

The Lander Library is located at 451 N. 2nd Street in Lander.
