We stopped here on 9/5/17 after reading about Sinks Canyon. The VC was closed (after Labor Day?) but we could walk to where the river goes underground and where it reappears 1/4 mile away.
The cave into which the river disappears was interesting but the hundreds of large trout in and around the pool where the river comes back to the service were amazing.
If you are in the area, check out Sinks Canyon.

The recently introduced entrance fee did not deter us as this is an impressive Museum. A very balanced view of the American West and the impact on the indigenous population of the migration and settlement of their lands. Very thought provoking, but also showed the hardships endured by the settlers and highlights the pioneering spirit needed to survive.

This is an unusually "braided" type of waterfall, offering several paces to enjoy the cascade. But be careful as rocks are slippery, and water is cold. Very refreshing on a hot day. WARNING: many cars in the parking lot/trailhead have been invaded by MICE recently. Put all food in coolers and open the car up fully after returning.

The Fremont County Pioneer Museum in Lander is located at the foot of the Wind River Mountains in west central Wyoming and is Wyoming's oldest history museum. Beginning in 1916 the collections of artifacts include amazing Native American collections and artifact related to the Oregon, Mormon and California Trails, gold mining, agrigulture and ranching. The Pioneer Museum hosts a number of great programs each year as part of their Discovery Speakers Series, Children's Exploration Series and the Adventure Trek Series in addition to a historic walking tour of Lander.
We spent a very good hour looking through this well done Museum. It has a wide variety of History items including local history and Native American items. There are adjacent Pioneer cabins, buildings and homes though they are not technically part of the museum. Do be aware that they appeared to close maybe an hour earlier than the museum so we were unable to visit the Interiors when we walked through at 4 p.m.

I worked with Kyle to arrange a climbing trip for 13 folks (ages 5-40, climbing experience 0-lots) while travelling to Lander for a family event. Kyle and Becca went over an above our expectations, and ensured that every person had a safe, memorable, and amazing Sinks Canyon climbing experience! Their gear was high quality, well maintained, and nearly brand new! Plus they had and extensive array of shoe and harness sizes to fit everyone (not easy given the range of ages/sizes).
At the crag, they set up a variety of different routes to ensure everyone had climbs at the right level. Their instruction was spot on, and it was clear that safety was a priority while maximizing everyone's experience.
Following the climbing, Kyle patiently taught ~8 kids to rappel for the first time in their lives - their smiles were priceless. Meanwhile, for those of us who wanted to keep climbing, Becca set extra routes at higher levels to keep each individual challenged and engaged.
I look forward to returning to Lander and working with Kyle and Becca again!

With a variety of slot machines, table games, restaurants, and a stunning hotel, we are your one-stop option to play, sleep and eat. All rooms have majestic views of the Wind River Foothills and Mountains. Some rooms have fireplaces and our suites have jetted tubs.
We arrived in Lander an heard the excitement of the grand opening the following day (Oct 14th). Unsure how long we would remain in Lander we decided to visit the Shoshone Rose. The casino was clean and spacious however the customer service clerk could have been a bit more personable. I went to the hotel reception and asked to see a room. The clerks were rather dismissing of me and finally one clerk responded "you can look at it tomorrow when we have an open house". We had accommodations at Wind River Hotel & Casino and were entertaining staying at Shoshone Rose on our return trip. There was no reason to not show me a room. Their lack of customer service was disappointing and we did not return for the grand opening or stay at their hotel.

We got the chance to visit with the owner of the sanctuary. He was very knowledgeable about the horses. This is a new sanctuary for the BLM. If you love horses this is a hidden gem for you to visit.

If you want to get a flavor of the local people, this is where I would recommend. Very friendly staff and great conversations to be expected at The Forge. Over 10 beer taps for those of you that like both traditional domestic beer and brewpub choices. We did not eat here so I cannot comment on the food.

This is a great, local Nordic ski area, maintained by donated time and services (local merchants support the mechanized trail maintenance. Some of the trails are very demanding but there are enough easier trails that most users can find a good route. It is reasonably closed to Lander (10 miles?) with good parking and a safe underground highway crossing. Lots of local competitions are held (races, biathlons, group activities) and the area seems well supported. I don't think there is a charge but users are expected to support the area through joining the users group. Given that it is a non-profit are run mostly by volunteers, I'd have given it a 5-star rating but I have to agree that there is a certain edge by some of the club members who seem put off by the less than expert users. The ski area is entirely on BLM and Forest Service land (ie public land) and should be available for the less than aggressively serious skiers without getting an "attitude" from the other users. Make sure you know the race schedule (it is posted online) because casual skiing is not allowed that day.
