This Wyoming Park Has A Yurt Village That’s Absolutely To Die For
Wyomingites love to be outdoors, and we take advantage of every beautiful day that comes our way. However, there’s no avoiding winter here — it comes in like a lion every single year. Chilly days, snowstorms, and freezing temperatures don’t have to put an end to your outdoor exploring, though! Bundle up with some cozy clothing and head to Sinks Canyon State Park, where camping year-round is not just feasible — it’s downright delightful.
Sinks Canyon State Park, located a few miles outside of Lander, is one of the most unique places in Wyoming.
In the summertime, people flock to this Wyoming park to hike along the Popo Agie River and see the Sinks and the Rise.
The Sinks, for which the park is named, is a cavern where the river goes underground, and the Rise is where it reappears downstream.
Winter at Sinks Canyon is just as magical because the canyons and cliffs along the river turn into a snow-covered paradise.
To make things even better, Sinks Canyon is one of just three Wyoming State Parks to offer yurt camping — and here, it's year-round.
Each roomy yurt is located on its own private campsite, with a grill, picnic table, and a patio.
Don't worry about being cold at night — these yurts are heated! You'll want to bring your own bedding, though, for a comfortable stay.
The Sinks Canyon Yurts are the perfect way to keep up camping year-round! Use yours as a base for all of your winter fun.
Fog off of the Popo Agie in the morning sets the scene for a beautiful start to your day.
Bundle up and explore Sinks Canyon State Park and you'll quickly fall in love with the wintertime scenery. Hiking around here is a relaxing way to spend some time outdoors.
At the end of the day, return to your warm and cozy yurt to relax for the evening.
Before you head off to bed, be sure to pop your head outside, though, and get a glimpse at the wide Wyoming sky. The winter stars are absolutely breathtaking.
