Located in north-central Wyoming, the Bighorn Mountains are a sister range of the Rocky Mountains. Conveniently located halfway between Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstone National Park, the Bighorns are a great vacation destination in themselves. No region in Wyoming is provided with a more diverse landscape - from lush grasslands to alpine meadows, from crystal-clear lakes to glacially-carved valleys, from rolling hills to sheer mountain walls. 

Visit the Bighorn National Forest and enjoy the multiple reservoirs, 30 campgrounds, four group campgrounds, three scenic byways, 10 picnic areas, eight lodges, miles and miles of streams, 189,000 acres of wilderness, 1,500 miles of trails, and much more that provide a special recreation experience.

We hope this website provides you with inside information on the Bighorn Mountains - from the experiences they have to offer to the way we manage their many resources. Most of all, we hope it invites you to come see their spectacular beauty for yourselves.
