This is nice place to visit. The main feature is a cave where the river disappears. The river reappears a small distance downhill. They have a nice little interpretive center.

Visited whilst staying at Lander after a recommendation from visitor centre. The park consists of a canyon which offers rock climbing for the adventurous. It also has a river which has a sink hole and then re-emerges down stream

The Popo Agie River flows through this scenic state park. Besides being beautiful in itself, it has a peculiar feature of disappearing into a cave and reappearing in springs a quarter of a mile down canyon. Only the spring melt increases the flow so that...More

So much to offer. Fishing, walking trails, waterfall. Switchbacks to lakes and streams for fishing, boating, Bring a jacket for evenings. South entrance for snow mobilizing in winter. Locals love this area. Close to Riverton, closer to Lander.

The way the Wind River disappears as a river and returns as a series of springs is unique in my experience. The park is a wonderland of natural beauty; its geology is especially fascinating. The hike to the falls is amply rewarded by the falls...More

The hike to these falls is gorgeous and the falls themselves are stunning. If you drive through Sinks Canyon State Park and park just beyond the Bruce Picnic area in the large parking lot, you will find the trailhead for these falls. The in and...More

We stopped here while on our way from Jackson to Rawlins. We were just there to have a little picnic by the river but the scenery was very nice. We didn't have time to do much more.
