General Information

Description - The District encompasses the entire Greys River drainage, which runs through the middle of the District, with many of the recreation attractions are located there. The Snake River runs along the north end of the District, with several campgrounds and boat launches. The Salt River Range and Wyoming Range are prominent features of the District. Periodic Spring, just east of Afton, is the worlds largest cold water geyser.

Recreation - The rivers, canyons and mountain ranges of the Greys River Ranger District provide a scenic backdrop for numerous outdoor recreation activities. Some of the most popular activities on the Forest include camping in campgrounds or in undeveloped areas, hiking, backpacking, sightseeing by car or foot, horseback riding, rafting, fishing, and big-game hunting. In the winter, ample snow in the high country brings opportunities for snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.

Climate - As throughout the Rocky Mountains, the climate varies drastically depending on elevation. Summers generally offer warm clear days with cool nights. Afternoon thunderstorms are often a possibility in the summer. In the winter, sunshine, with heavy of snow in the higher elevations, are ideal for winter activities. Harsh weather - including wind, cold, and snow - is possible throughout the winter and even throughout the year, in the highest elevations.

Location - The Greys River Ranger District is located on the west side of the Bridger-Teton National Forest, in the Salt River Range and Wyoming Range in western Wyoming. This area is just south of the Snake River and east of the Salt River and Starr Valley in extreme western Wyoming. The District touches the eastern end of Palisades Reservoir. The District office is located in Afton.

Report: On a trip to Yellowstone last summer, my oldest son and I travelled Hwy. 89 out of Logan Utah. We stopped at Rick Springs, a sight I remember from a trip when I was a child. We then went on to the ridge overlooking Bear Lake and then back tracked to Allred Flats Campground for a nights stay. This a totally awesome place. Active beaver dams and other wildlife topped it off. The remaining trip up Hwy. 89 through the Star Valley is not to be missed. I would like to return to this section of the Bridger Forest for a longer stay.
