Traveling Responsibly in Southwest Wyoming

As you take a break from the day-to-day to slow down in our small communities, our neighbors welcome you and ask that you visit responsibly. We know you seek a relaxed atmosphere and wide-open spaces to escape into, and we know you’ll find that in Fossil Basin. We’re happy to host you!

We just ask that you remember a few things to keep our home and our neighbors well:

Leave no trace: Remember to take only pictures and leave only footprints as you adventure in all our public lands and free spaces.

Cover up or step back: We don’t have very many crowded places around here, so keeping six feet between yourself and others comes pretty naturally. When close quarters are necessary, pull a bandana or other face covering on for your wellbeing and ours. We won’t hassle you to put it on, but we appreciate it when you do.

Note: A mask mandate is currently in effect for the state of Wyoming. The public health order requiring face coverings in public setting is in effect until January 8, 2021.  

Stay informed: We’ve settled into a pretty normal routine here, and though we’ve never had a raging nightlife, you’ll find most of our doors open these days. However, remember to check hours online and be flexible as you make plans. Sometimes hours change because we’ve had to make COVID-related adjustments, and sometimes it’s just because the neighbor’s cattle got out again.
