A great way to spend an afternoon

Lots of different things to do here. You can see the BIG fish at the overlook, hike, camp or picnic. We saw elk and deer while driving up the canyon. A very enjoyable afternoon.

From a beautiful winding, canyon drive, seeing and feeding huge trout, to the hike to where the Popo Agie river pours into the side of the canyon, the Sinks Canyon State Park offers nature at it's finest. Enjoy hiking, wildlife, and photo ops within a short distance.

Love this place. I was surprised at how absolutely gorgeous this location is. It was a good 20 degrees colder than Lander, and very windy...but can't emphasize enough that the weather didn't detract from the beauty of it. Must go when near Lander!

Stunning place in the mountains. Great campgrounds, fantastic Visitor Center with educational displays (open in the summer), a really unique geologic/hydrologic feature and lots of wildlife.

It's just beautiful. Close to town. Not to be missed. The PoPo Agie goes under the road in the sinks and comes out at the rise on the other side. There are huge trout at the rise. Then go farther up the canyon road and hike to the falls! A natural water slide. Freezing water!

This is an interesting place with a short path to the sights to see. It is not really signed very well from the road but once you walk down to the river there are signs. Visitor center was closed so we missed some of the information about the area. Convenient from the town of Lander and a real pretty drive... More

Fun to see the water of the Popo Agie river falling into the cave then reappearing later downstream. THe trout are HUGE - don't feed them bread but instead be sure to purchase the trout food for 25 cents instead. They're big enough but so fun to see them jump and chase the food. When we went (a week after... More

Grew up visiting the Sinks as a child. Moved away, but brought my own children to visit in the summer, Now I take my grandchildren to the sinks. It never gets old!

A visit to the Sinks to watch and feed the trout is a great, short outing for any age from toddlers to the elderly.

I biked from downtown Lander to Bruce's Campground, which is not all the way up the mountain, but far enough for me. Very scenic, great visitor's center, and don't miss the fish at "The Rise." With a car, I would have gone up into the National Forest beyond the State Park.
