There’s Nothing Better Than Wyoming’s Natural Lazy River On a Summer’s Day

For those who enjoy hitting the water park and spending a hot summer day floating in the cooling water, Wyoming has a treat for you: our own natural lazy river in Carbon County.

Forming a giant horseshoe, the North Platte River flows into Wyoming from Colorado, sweeping north before it curves around and drops back to head southeast and continue on its way into Nebraska. The river takes its time running through gorgeous Wyoming wilderness, providing smooth and easy waters perfect for cooling off on a summer’s day.

The best part is that there are loads of campsites along the North Platte River, so you can spend more than just one afternoon floating, boating, or fishing. Of course, Wyoming has numerous other rivers and waterways. Which one features your favorite natural lazy river?
