Horseback is a terrific way to explore the Wind River Range, and especially for those whose time doesn't permit hiking the magnificent mountains. Our guides will lead you to areas in line with your interests (e.g., photography, fishing, hiking, scenic). You will return to the lodge in time to have the evening to yourself for fishing or relaxing.

Guest Corral Rentals

Should you choose to stay and bring your own horses, we have corrals available on a first-come, first-served basis. Guests provide feed and care. Water is available. Horses coming from out of state need to have proper health certificates. Hay and pellets brought in must be certified weed free. Up to two horses per corral, $35/night.

Spot Packs & Gear Drops

Our Packer/Guides can take you and your gear by horseback to your choice of destinations in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. If your party chooses to hike in and/or out, we can pack all or part of your gear. Trips over 12 miles by special arrangement.


From Big Sandy Lodge, the Fremont, Lowline, Highline, and Big Sandy trails will take you to nearly 40 different lakes with 6 different species of trout. Most lakes are within 8 miles of the lodge. Some of the more remote lakes are within 15 miles. How early can you get in? That depends, of course, on the weather each year and when the snow melts. Some years we can get up to the lodge in mid to late May and the snow doesn't fly again until mid-October. We can't predict the exact date until we get into the spring.

Access by horse begins in June, before then we hike in. Great fishing is available in the nearby lake just a few steps from your cabin door! We do not sell fishing licenses at the lodge, so please be sure to get your licenses in town before you come up.
