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.
NOTE: We are sorry to announce, due to county-wide budget cutbacks in 2020, we are currently unable to fund the annual grant program. This includes all applications received for calendar year 2020.
Funding County Recreation Projects
The Grant Process
The Fremont County Commissioners are mandated to annually allocate up to one quarter of one mill levy to the County Recreation Board. The Recreation Board disperses these funds through an annual grant process. In the midst of current budgetary concerns, the County Commissioners have chosen to direct these funds elsewhere and the Recreation Board is unable to accept grant applications until further notice.
Examples from Previous Years
These are just a sample of projects we've helped fund in Fremont County
From mowing equipment to nordic grooming equipment and all the grass, gravel, and snow in-between.
Repair and Maintenance
Investing in existing facilities and infrastructure for future generations.
What does your team need? Batting cages, wrestling mats, scoreboards, timing systems; we're here to help.
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.
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!
