Shoshone National Forest Visitor Guide

The Guide is a 16-page, full color publication with a very large file size (.pdf 20mb).

Shoshone National Forest Capacity Analysis

The Shoshone National Forest is a diverse forest with both wilderness and front country recreational experiences; it is a popular destination for both public use and outfitted use.  Due to the unique features of the Shoshone National Forest (remoteness, ruggedness, Grizzly habitat, tec.), it is critical the Forest develops a strong outfitting community by promoting an environment where outfitting businesses can thrive. Our goal is to maintain viable, professional outfitters and guides that are effective in providing quality services to National Forest visitors while balancing non-commercial public uses and protecting the resources for future generations.

An interdisciplinary team (with input from public meetings, Wyoming Game and Fish, and permitted outfitters) identified desired conditions and determined the appropriate Social Capacity Management Zone for each compartment.  The team also determined the site-specific management considerations, values, issues, suitable outfitter-guide activities in each compartment, and management objectives.
