One of the most compelling reasons to live in Northwest Wyoming is the amazing number of outdoor recreational opportunities. Whether you hunt or fish, hike or climb, road bike or mountain bike, cross-country or downhill ski, snowshoe or snowmobile, you will find world-class access within 100 miles in every direction of Powell, Wyoming. And don't forget Yellowstone National Park. At just over 70 miles to the East Entrance, Powell is an easy morning's drive to the park after a comfortable, reasonably-priced stay away from the crowds!
Hunting seasons exist in Northwest Wyoming for world class hunting of deer, elk, antelope, mountain goats and sheep, bear, upland game, waterfowl, wolves and numerous other species.
The blue ribbon Big Horn River is within a 45 minute drive as is fishing (summer and ice) on the Buffalo Bill Reservoir. The Greybull River through the Wind River Canyon is about 1.5 hours away for some of the area's best fly fishing. And don't forget the N & S forks of the Shoshone River from Yellowstone National Park to the Reservoir. All are within a two-hour drive.
