Big Sandy Lodge

How to get here...

Big Sandy Lodge is Remote
It's going to take you awhile to get here, and that's part of the whole adventure for the trip. You can get part of the way by air if you're from far away, but the closest major airport is still several hours from here. The last part of the trip is by passenger vehicle, and the last 10 miles of that on a bumpy, windy dirt road. We're secluded, and we like it that way! Once you get here, you'll see why.

We're located in western Wyoming, about half way between Jackson Hole and Rock Springs. By Air
Commercial flights arrive daily in Rock Springs, Riverton and Jackson, Wyoming. Salt Lake City, Utah, also has commercial flights in. Rental cars are available at each of these airports. Shuttle services are available from Jackson and Pinedale with advance arrangements. Sublette Stage Shuttle Service. For more information and services, contact the Sublette Chamber of Commerce and Pinedale tourism websites.

The Rest of the Way
Describing how to get here depends on which way you're coming from. You'll be taking gravel roads for the last part of the The road to Big Sandy Lodge winds through scenic aspen groves.

Be sure you gas up at Farson, Pinedale, or Boulder before heading up the rest of the way, and make sure you have a spare tire along. The town of Big Sandy that shows up on some maps isn't really a town. Boulder and Farson are both very small towns. You can get gas and food in both, but not much else. Be sure to fill your gas tank at either Farson or Boulder before heading out. This is also the last stop for food or restroom break until you get to the Lodge. Plan on at least an hour and a half on back roads to get here once you leave the highway. You can print out our driving direction map and take it with you. It shows the mileage and routes to take to get here from any direction. The phone number is also printed on the map in case you get lost and need to call for instructions.

The trip from these towns takes you first through openOpen meadows along the way to Big Sandy Lodge. Click on photo for a larger view.

Imagine crossing this in a wagon on your way to a better life in Oregon or California a hundred years ago. There are signs directing the way to the lodge at the major intersections (crossroads in the 'middle of nowhere'), so watch for them. You may pass mountain bikers on these back roads as well, as this route is also the Continental Divide Mountain Biking Trail which runs from Canada to Mexico.

You'll pass through conifer forests with vistas of snow-capped mountain peaks. Along the way, you'll follow the Big Sandy River and likely see deer and possibly moose. Beaver live in the stream, once highly prized by the early mountain men who trapped here in the early 1800s. Beaver ponds and dams are located all along the Big Sandy River Dutch Joe Creek, along the way to Big Sandy Lodge. Click on picture for a larger view.

Further on, you'll cross over Dutch Joe Creek, a pretty spot for a picnic break. Continue climbing the road and you'll enter into the Big Sandy Opening with large meadows of swaying grass and dotted with red Indian Paintbrush wildflowers.

Once you get to the end of the road, you'll see the signs and gate leading into Big Sandy Lodge LLC. Come on in and begin the rest of your adventure!

We accept drop-offs for hikers on the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail for our guests who stay at least one night.

(Personally, we can't think of a more beautiful place to get lost in.)
