Fremont County, Wyoming Recreation Board

 

What We Do

The Fremont County Recreation Board is a volunteer team of county residents appointed and funded by the County Commission and responsible for two primary tasks.

1) Managing an annual grant program intended to secure and expand recreational opportunities for county residents.

2) Managing three properties on behalf of county government: Fremont County Youth Camp, Green Mountain Campground, and The Heritage Trail.

Every Spring we receive grant requests from across Fremont County. Grant requirements can be found in the above application documents. Paper applications are due on Friday, March 15.

We prefer all applicants to send a representative to our March 27 meeting Fremont County School District No 25's Administrative Building in Riverton. Your representative should be prepared to present a brief overview of the grant request and answer any remaining questions.

New Builds

We've helped groups build and upgrade new and existing facilities across our county. 

 

Fremont Country Youth Camp

Overlooking Sinks Canyon, the Fremont County Youth Camp has helped folks from near and far make great summer memories. Youth Camp routinely hosts church groups, sports teams, groups of young folks and the young-at-heart.

Green Mountain Picnic Area

Located southeast of Jeffery City along Highway 287, Green Mountain Picnic Area is a real gem and one of the finest established camping areas in Fremont County. In the summer, beat the heat under the trees while enjoying the alpine breeze. In the fall, the golden aspens and bugling elk make for a truly Wyoming experience.

Heritage Trail

Looking for a place to stretch your legs or ride your ATV, mountain bike, or horse? Why not visit the Heritage Trail between Riverton and Shoshoni? Travel the old railroad grade to historic Black Bridge and get lost in the midst of the Sagebrush Sea. Spend an hour or a day!
