National Forests in Wyoming


  • New Fork Lakes, Bridger-Teton National Forest
  • Green Lakes, Bridger-Teton National Forest
  • Pingora Peak, Shoshone National Forest
  • Moose in Bighorn National Forest

I only list five National Forests on this page but there are actually bits and pieces of three others in Wyoming. On the west side of Grand Teton National Park is part of the Caribou-Targhee National Forest. Against the Montana border by Yellowstone National Park is part of Gallatin National Forest. And down by Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area is a piece of Ashley National Forest.
