Recreation is not just a key element of the wonderful quality of life we share in the Big Horn Mountain region — it is a core industry to our local economies. These recreational opportunities are one of the greatest tourist attractions the area has to offer, and we strive to capitalize on that by helping to promote the wide array of activities available throughout the region.
Our unique Big Horn Mountains interactive map showcases the various towns and recreational opportunities available in and around the Big Horn Mountains. Print copies of this map are made available at welcome centers and attraction sites throughout the area, providing a region-wide snapshot of the recreational opportunities available. The Big Horn Mountain Coalition also wholesales a “coffee-table” book on the Big Horns to booksellers throughout the region, further promoting the region-wide scope of tourism.
Dispersed Camping Public Workshops
The Big Horn Mountain Coalition (BHMC) is initiating a public discussion on the topic of dispersed camping in the Bighorns. This discussion will take the form of public meetings held in each of the four Coalition counties (Big Horn, Johnson, Sheridan and Washakie). Based on the results of this public process, the BHMC will prepare formal recommendations to the US Forest Service, Wyoming Forestry Division, and the US Bureau of Land Management for their consideration in future planning activities.
