There are three campgrounds in Sinks Canyon. Sawmill and Popo Agie campground are state park campgrounds. Sinks Campground is at the upper end of the canyon and is a National Forest campground. There are additional National Forest Campgrounds along the Loop Road (Highway 131) above Sinks Canyon.
Fees for the National Forest campground are $15 per night.
Fees for the state park campgrounds are $6 per night for Wyoming residents and $11 a night for non-residents. A yearly camping permit is available for Wyoming residents. No other fees are required in the state park.
The first campground you come to in the canyon is Sawmill Campground. It is mainly a day use area, but there are five campsites (one of which is a fully ADA accessible site) that can be used by either campers or tents.
There is a large day use picnic shelter at Sawmill Campground that is available on a first come first served basis. The shelter can be reserved for a $35 fee and $35 deposit. Call 307-332-3077 to make reservations.
Sawmill also has a small playground and climbing structure.
There are 24 sites in Popo Agie Campground (see campground map). Several at the lower end are walk-in tent campsites. Tents or campers can be used at all other sites. Large RV sites are very limited. There are no showers or hook-ups.
Most summers there is a camp host at both Popo Agie and Sinks Campgrounds.
Showers are available for a small fee in Lander at the community swimming pool (The Bruce Gresly Aquatic Center) during open swimming hours. Call 307-332-2272 for information on hours.
All camping in the canyon is first come first served – there is no reserving of sites.
