  • We were in Lander for a wedding. We were told we had to check out Sinks Canyon State Park. We were very happy that we did. The park was very cool. We did a couple mile hike around the nature trail...

  • This place is absolutely terrific and a unique gem to visit. The visitor’s center had a nice display of the various animals and fish in the region and it was a pleasant learning opportunity for the kids. The really exciting part was the overview of the trout. They were massive! Without exaggeration, some of the trout would be about 15-20 lbs and are bigger than many salmon. Make sure you bring some quarters to use in the fish food dispenser if you want to feed the fish. We would happily go back and enjoy this state park.
  • This is a beautiful place to be! We were traveling through the area, and we are so glad we stopped. We did the nature trail and then fed the fish. Kids loved it!
