Sinks Canyon State Park is a public recreation and nature preservation area located in the Wind River Mountains, southwest of Lander, Wyoming, on Wyoming Highway 131. The state park is named for a portion of the Middle Fork of the Popo Agie River where it flows into an underground limestone cavern, named "the Sinks," and emerges a quarter-mile down the canyon in a pool named "the Rise." The park is managed by the Wyoming Division of State Parks and Historic Sites.

  • Had an absolutely wonderful visit here. We didn't have enough time to include the visitor's center but the hike was amazing. Beautiful scenery and waterfalls. I really wish I had known about this place earlier, I would surely have spent more time here. Can't wait to go back!
  • Incredible high volume river goes underground, then 1/4 mile down mountain comes back above ground. Very cold mountain stream. Great visitors center, and scenic picknic areas. 1.5 mile trail (each way) leads to falls and natural water slide. Must see!
