As a community of gathering, located in the central part of the state and the heart of Wind River Country, it’s no wonder people come here to recreate and compete. Riverton frequently hosts sporting events worth traveling for, including baseball tournaments, fishing derbies on Boysen Reservoir, equine competitions and rodeos at the Fremont County Fairgrounds, winter fair shenanigans, and more. Be sure to check the community calendar when you plan your trip, because there is probably something fun to join in or spectate. Or simply plan a casual round of competition with travel buddies by hitting the disc golf course in Sunset Park, or golfing a round at the Riverton Country Club.
If your form of recreation is less competitive, head out to enjoy a long hike through Castle Gardens, or deep into the Wind River Mountains on a backpacking trip. We have many local outfitters and guides who can make sure you have a safe, enjoyable adventure in our wildest places.
Riverton is aptly named, so you can trust that you can find lots of fishing—on our rivers or reservoirs such as Boysen State Park. If you’re looking for some guidance, contact a local guide for some tips, or jump in a raft for some thrills and bites!
Riverton’s views of the Wind River Mountains will always draw your eyes up, but exploring the unique high desert landscape by bike or ATV is so accessible right in our backyard, much of which is public lands—and that makes it your backyard, too!
