ummer Activities

Diamondville is within short driving distance of several locations that offer wildlife viewing, photography, fishing, boating, and much more.
Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge and Cokeville Meadows National Wildlife Refuge are within roughly one-half hour driving time from Diamondville. Seedskadee offers a reservoir for boating and fishing, and the Green River that runs below it and through the Wildlife Refuge is well know for its boating, rafting, and fishing opportunities, as well as wildlife viewing and photography. It is not unusual to see many birds along with moose, mule deer, and antelope along the banks. There are two developed campgrounds available and also some undeveloped sites for camping. This area enjoys lots of visitors both in summer and winter.

Going north of Diamondville leads to many other areas for outdoor activities. Both US Hwy 189 and US Hwy 30N lead to Yellowstone National Park, Teton National Park, and the world renowned National Park Elk Refuge. The trip north offers some of the most awe-inspiring scenery along with opportunities for wildlife viewing and photography,, but also a myriad of outdoor-related activities such as fishing, boating, white-water rafting, camping, hiking, hunting, and backpacking. Going north on US HWY 30N also leads to wilderness areas that provide an excellent place to pursue activities for the rugged and not-so-rugged outdoor enthusiast.

Going east of Diamondville leads into some of the best desert county around, with areas for a multitude of outdoor activities, such as camping, hiking, hunting, and wildlife viewing. Many take advantage of the sand dunes for motorcycling and four-wheeling. This area is also one of the best known sites for viewing wild horses in their true environment.

Fishing & Hunting


P
erhaps the activities this part of the state is most famous for are fishing and hunting. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department with its Green River District office and our local Game and Fish personnel are always ready and willing to answer any questions and help in any way possible to make those activities enjoyable.

Boating

Diamondville is close to two large reservoirs that people use for boating, the Fontenelle Reservoir and the Viva Naughton Reservoir. We are also close to the Green River that people enjoy for fishing, rafting, canoeing, or just plain drifting on. Up north of us is the Snake River, renowned for its white water rafting, kayaking, and just plain rafting.


Camping

Because we are surrounded by some of the best country in the world for outdoor activities, it is not surprising that we have many popular camping areas nearby. The Bridger-Teton Forest and BLM land provide really nice places to pitch a tent or set a camper or trailer. We also have some developed campgrounds, especially near the Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge.
