Thread: Wind River Range--looking for recommendation for base camp

    Default Wind River Range--looking for recommendation for base camp

    I'm planning a trip for 4 guys to the Wind River Range in mid-September. Due to a combination of middle age, all living at less than 1,000 feet of altitude, being used to a few luxuries because we mostly canoe camp (cough, cough, pansies)...we have elected to have a guide drop pack us in and camp in one location for 4 nights. We are coming in from the Pinedale side.

    I'm looking for recommendations on where to drop approximately 10-15 miles from a trailhead. Priorities would be access to fishy lakes (despite the pansy thing, we are all fit and could cover 10-15 miles round trip in a day to check out nearby lakes), a comfortable place to camp and good scenery. None of us have been to the Winds before, so I want to see as much as we can subject to the pansy limitation.

    I assume we won't have much competition for camp sites that time of the year, but I would really like to stay somewhere scenic and comfortable because we will be there for 4 nights.

    Ideas?

    Sorry about lacking specifics, but you can find many nice areas hiking out of Elkhart. I really fish I could remember some names of lakes up there. I worked for the WY Game and Fish and sampled around the mountains.
