Flaming Gorge Country

Set Your Bold Side on Fire

Throughout history, Flaming Gorge Country has hosted mountain men, pioneers, outlaws and Native Americans. Today — with its expansive reservoir, Lake Flaming Gorge — it welcomes anyone with an insatiable appetite for the outdoors. 

Situated where the rugged Uinta Mountains meet the expansive Wyoming desert, the breathtaking scenery is the perfect setting for boating, fishing, mountain biking, ATVing and hiking. Take a scenic drive or enjoy the Sheep Creek Geologic Loop Tour to get your heart racing. There is plenty to see and do year-round. In fact, the fun continues as the flakes fall in winter. From cross-country skiing to snowshoeing the trails to ice fishing for the big catch, cold-weather fanatics have plenty to do.

The area is also home to a wide array of wildlife like moose, Rocky Mountain elk, pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep and a variety of trout. 

Visitors can make themselves at home in a cozy lodge to gain great access to trails, Lake Flaming Gorge and the tailwaters of the Green River. Many accommodations offer fishing and/or rafting guides, raft and mountain bike rentals and horseback rides, as well as on-site restaurants.
