Alpine, Wyoming, at an elevation of 5,640’ is nestled against surrounding mountains at the convergence of three pristine rivers. The Grey’s, Salt, and Snake Rivers merge into the Palisades Reservoir, which provided incredible vistas and water activities for all – boating, jet skiing, fishing, water skiing, and much more. The Grey’s River area offers over 471,000 acres of virgin national forest and summer recreation ranging from kayaking and white water rafting to camping, fishing, and countless miles of trails for hiking or horseback riding. For the naturalist, too, a large wetland and waterfowl viewing area is only a few minutes’ drive from Alpine.
With our annual snowfall of 500”, winter sports abound as well; snowshoeing, ice fishing, down-hill and cross-country skiing are just a fraction of what is available to the winter visitor here. In addition, the quality of our more that 150 miles of groomed snowmobile trails earned Alpine “Top 5” in the West and “Top 3” in Wyoming from Snow West Magazine’s 2002-2003 Winter Guide.
Those who want to watch Wyoming’s majestic wildlife can also visit the Alpine Feed Ground, operated by Wyoming Game & Fish, which draws more than one thousand elk from December to April and is accessible right at the edge of town!
