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.

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. Groups from across Fremont County may apply. Scroll down for examples of previously funded projects.

Examples from Previous Years

These are just a sample of projects we've helped fund in Fremont 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!
