The Green River Lakes Lodge is located 50 miles north of Pinedale, Wyoming. The lodge is available as a rental for day use events such as weddings, family reunions, or meetings for up to 50 guests, or as an overnight rental for smaller groups of up to 12 guests.
During the summer months, hiking and horseback riding into the Bridger Wilderness and Wind River Range are popular activities enjoyed by visitors to the area. The lake is open to small watercraft only, making it an excellent location for canoeing, kayaking, and paddle boarding. There is a small boat launch located on the lakeshore, but turnaround space is limited and the access route steep. Anglers fish for brook, cutthroat, rainbow and Mackinaw trout. Fall and winter opportunities abound also, from hunting and late season hiking to snowmobiling and ice fishing. Access in winter is via 20 mile groomed snowmachine trail.
