Things To Do


There are 2 campgrounds here at Sweetwater River Campground. One is located at the Bridge, and one at the Guard Station. This area is ideally suited for the solitary adventurer as the area is very isolated. A traveler seeking a remote area for hiking, mountain biking, fishing, or quiet contemplation can find all that here at the southern end of the Wind River Mountains. There is trailhead access to the Bridger Wilderness, and Little Sandy Lake, and all the surrounding Bureau of Land Management land is crisscrossed with roads and trails to explore.
