The Falls!!
Sep 2021
The falls hike was the best thing about the state park. Relatively short hike (3 miles roundtrip) with gorgeous river and fall views at the top. Loved it!

Great day in the park
Sep 2021
We spent the day in Sink's Canyon Park and had great time. We started off at the visitor center which close the the park entrance if you are coming from Lander. It is small with some displays of the local animals and birds as well as of the unique features of the park. They also have some items to sale. The park ranger on duty was great at answering questions, handing out maps and providing recommendations on that to do depending on your interests and fitness.

A few step above the VC is an observation with a great view of there the water enters into the canyon and goes below ground. You can also take a short trail down to the waters entrance it the water flow is low enough. From the VC you can then flow a trail to the Sink Canyon Rise where the water surfaces from the under ground tunnel as well as were all the large trout gather for people to feed them. The trail is only 0.4 mile from the VC but you can drive if you rather not walk.

Further up the canyon are a few parking lots (some with camp grounds) from which you can pick up other trails along the river, fish or do other activities. We chose to take the nature trail from the Sinks Canyon Campground. You first pass over the river on a cool suspension bridge. If you take the trail about 1.5 miles back towards the VC along the river you get to a point where you have a great view of the canyon and the river.

Neat stop
Aug 2021 • Couples
This was a quick stop on our way out of Lander and definitely worth a visit. We stopped and fed the trout and saw the Rise. A short distance down the road we saw the Sinks which was the real highlight. The water rushing down and trickling into the underground was really neat. I suggest walking the trail down to the cavern to see it up close and personal. There are several rocks and the climb down/up isn’t manageable for everyone, but it’s worth it.

Water, rocks, and more!

A gem of a state park. We visited two days in a row and had wonderful hikes each day. Definitely go see the sink and the rise of the Popo Agie River, and if you have energy, they have many hiking trails available.

There are bugs and its exposed with a lot of sun, but the nature is fantastic. Really unique geography and very much worth visiting.

What a lovely surprise!
May 2021 • Couples
Went on the spur of the moment and it was lovely. We fed the enormous trout in the trout pool, which were bigger than the ducks! No kidding, huge fish. Took lots of photos as the sun started down, saw some deer. It was really nice, even with the odd snowflake. They have lots of camping facilities and you can rent a YURT!!! Check it out.

Nice Scenery on the east side of the Wind River Range in northwestern Wyoming.
Sep 2020
I only drove part way through Sinks Canyon State Park, the part that was paved. There were some great views as I traveled higher along the highway, and though it was a little too early for much fall color, some of the aspens were starting to turn. I stopped at the top, at the edge of pavement. I ate a picnic lunch at this spot while enjoying the early fall weather, then turned around and went back down. It was late in the afternoon, and I still had a lot of driving, plus from what I had read, the road in the unpaved portions was much rougher. However, I would recommend that everyone visit the park at least once.

Amazing and Unique place!
Mar 2020
I love this area it is my favorite part! Also if you don't believe me I have lived here my entire life! This is an amazing place and you should definitely check Sinks Canyon Park if you ever come here! There are these cool things you can see and you can even rent this little hut I believe and stay there! If you have snowshoes and it's winter you can go snowshoeing in the mountains. Even if you don't have snowshoes you can rent some! There is a lot of things to do when you are here so don't waste your time and get over here! Trust me you won't run out of things to do here!
