The river flows into a cave and travels underground then rises again,

What a special place...You can see the river flow into a cave and out of site. Then you can drive or walk 1/4 mile to 'the rise' where the water magically come out of the ground... read more

What a special place...You can see the river flow into a cave and out of site. Then you can drive or walk 1/4 mile to 'the rise' where the water magically come out of the ground and forms a small pond before continuing it's flow down the canyon. The small pond is loaded with fish - that's as far as... More

It was interesting. One wall rock, one wooded. Stream started from crack in rock, made a little pool and within 50 yards it was roaring.

We traveled through Wyoming for our vacation (from MN) and this was one of our favorite spots. The man in the visitor center was super nice and gave great recommendations. Stayed in Popo Agie campground which was gorgeous (site 23 was perfect)! The sinks is interesting! Hikes were fun - even for kids- but could have been better marked. Drives... More

The rock is superior for climbing. Take the time for go on a nice day hike or plan a backpacking sleep over. Don't forget your fishing rod.

Beautiful views , easy walk paths , nice camping spots (but it is 100% primitive ). Camp spots are small and uneven. Do keep your eyes open for snakes. Not a lot of wildlife that we saw.

A bit of a hike but well worth it. Sliding off the rock into the freezing water was not for me but my husband LOVED it.

We were staying in Lander, WY for the night and thought we would check this place out. It was worth the short drive up the canyon to the Park. The place is beautiful and I think many people just don't know about it and miss it. We even fed the Rainbow Trout at the area where the water comes back... More

Very cool place! The fish in the creek were huge! You can feed them - so cool! Take the walk to see where the water comes from.

Great place to visit with trails to hike. Beautiful area. Have gone here a couple times and it is always fun and I see something different. Everything is free.

This was our first sight seeing destination. The roads are great, the curves wonderful, the views were breathtaking. We spend the afternoon and it was one of our best trips
