Lander - Sinks Canyon State Park

3079 Sinks Canyon Road

Sinks Canyon State Park features a geologic phenomenon in which the Popo Agie River vanishes into a large cavern (the Sinks) but reappears in a trout- filled pool, the Rise, about half a mile down the canyon. These trout live a leisurely life, with no fishing allowed. A visitor center features wildlife and recreation exhibits, viewing sites and interpretive signs about wildlife and habitat requirements. The park contains hiking trails and offers camping, picnicking, rock climbing and fishing. Sinks Canyon is home to a wide variety of wildlife, birds and plants. Visitors might see porcupines, black bears, red squirrels, bighorn sheep, mule deer, moose or golden eagles.

Outstanding!! Visited on my first trip to Wyoming. Such natural beauty as I had only ever seen in photos or videos. Very much worth the visit.

Wonderful site. It was snowing the day we went but still interesting. It is a place you need to go to several times a year to see how it changes.

Very cool stopover. First stop, you get a great view of huge fish and can feed them. Second stop (with visitor's center), you get to see a ton of water just flowing into a deep pool and disappearing. Very pretty. Visitor's center is great for kids.

Cool place to visit. Weird how the river goes underground and then rises later. Also love to watch the huge trout!
