Wyoming May Be Landlocked, But There Are Over 30 Islands Within Its Borders

No matter which way you turn, Wyoming is thousands of miles from any ocean. It’s surrounded by land on all four sides, yet it’s an island paradise. No, that’s not a typo, though it probably doesn’t mean what you might think. It’s true that Wyoming is landlocked, but it’s still home to more than a dozen lakes, and 79 rivers run through it. All those bodies of water provide plenty of places for more than 30 islands in the Cowboy State, proving that you don’t have to be anywhere near an ocean or the tropics to enjoy island life.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

And those are just the named islands on record. Have you visited any of them?
