Camping in Sinks Canyon is a great way to experience the beauty of the area. Sitting beside a crackling campfire with a blaze of stars above the canyon walls at night is a wondrous thing. From every campsite you can walk to the river to fish, explore or access the hiking trails.

There are several small campgrounds scattered along the river in the canyon.

All of the camp sites are primitive, with fire pits, tables, pit toilets. There is limited room for large RVs. Tents can be used in any site, and some are tent only. All camping is first come first serve.

No wood may be collected in the park. Campfire wood is available during peak season at the camp host in Popo Agie Campground (donation suggested).  The cutting of any standing tree or branch, dead or alive, is prohibited and is punishable by a fine. 

The campsites are all close to the river at the base of the soaring cliffs.

Sawmill Campground at the mouth of the canyon is mostly a day use area, but there are a few campsites.

Popo Agie Campground one mile up the canyon from the Visitor Center has 25 sites, access to hiking trails and quiet tree shaded sites by the river.

The National Forest run Sinks Campground is just beyond the boundary between the state park and Shoshone National Forest.

At the end of the canyon near the falls trailhead Bruce’s Picnic area is a quiet, pleasant place for a picnic. There is no camping at Bruce’s.

Other National Forest Service campgrounds are found along the Loop Road as you climb up out of the canyon.
