More Visitor Information
Wyoming, The Cowboy State and least populated in the Union, is often called the first state in outdoor America. From the thrill seeker to the nature lover, Wyoming has something to please everyone.
Two national parks and 12 state parks attract millions of visitors annually to Wyoming. Yellowstone National Park, established by President U.S. Grant in 1872, is the first national park in the U.S. and the world. In 2007 the park, along with neighboring Grand Teton National Park, attracted more than five million visitors.
Name an outdoor activity from whitewater rafting through the Grand Canyon of the Snake River at Jackson Hole, herding cattle in the Big Horn Mountains, hiking in the Snowy Range near Laramie, skiing the Tetons, stargazing in the eight-million-acre Red Desert of southwestern Wyoming, a visit to historic Fort Laramie to fly fishing in hundreds of streams and Wyoming has it all.
Head out on your own or with a guide to rock climb, kayak, snowboard, parasail, hang glide, windsurf or Jet Ski on one of the many reservoirs in the state.
Wyoming is all that innumerable movies, novels and legends have captured. So, pack your bags and move out. Wyoming is forever the great American west.
