“Get Your West On” and explore Wyoming’s Carbon County


When it’s time to “Get Your West On,” it’s time to head for Wyoming’s Carbon County. Located high on the Continental Divide in southcentral Wyoming, this gem sits astride Interstate 80 for easy access from points east and west. This vast 7,964-square-mile county boasts two scenic byways, the North Platte and Little Snake River Valleys, Encampment River, Saratoga Hobo Hot Springs, national forests, wilderness areas and the Continental Divide Trail. Within its perimeters lie the towns of Rawlins, Sinclair, Hanna, Medicine Bow, Elk Mountain, Saratoga, Riverside, Encampment, Savery, Dixon and Baggs.

Our wide-open spaces coupled with a low population make for some of the best outdoor recreation opportunities around, including camping, fishing, hiking, and cold-weather favorites like cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.

Nowhere else will you find such diversity of landscape and unspoiled wide-open spaces. Or you can take advantage of fascinating museums and historic sites and discover authentic Western adventure. If you’re looking for local culture, we encourage you to schedule your visit around one of our exciting annual events like the Woodchopper’s Jamboree & Rodeo, Independence Day Celebration, Summer Fest or Mountain Man Rendezvous.
