We're located at the entrance to the Big Sandy Opening, with access to many of the Wind River Mountain's trout lakes and streams, flowering meadows, photographic vistas, scenic trails, pine-scented forests, glaciers, wildlife, and towering mountain peaks. We are one mile from the wilderness boundary and next to the Big Sandy Trailhead with access to the breathtaking Cirque of the Towers and technical rock-climbing locations. Our rates are family-friendly and groups can reserve our facilities for family reunions, weddings, and executive retreats. Take advantage of our off-season rates by booking in June or September. Call or e-mail to make your reservations. Advanced reservations are recommended.
We are a remote, summer season lodge high in the Wind River Mountains open from late May until early October. Our operating season and opening day any given year depends on when the snow comes and goes and when the road to the lodge is free of snow. Big Sandy Lodge is approximately 100 miles from Rock Springs, Wyoming. During the winter season when the lodge is closed, we reside in Rock Springs. You can make reservations for your stay any time of the year by calling, e-mailing, or using snail-mail.
