Small portions of the Pinedale & Blackrock Districts are in Fremont County.
Things to do in the BTNF in Fremont County:
Only 135,000 acres of the BTNF (about 1/25 of the forest) are in Fremont County, but here the forest is adjacent to the 2.2 million acre Wind River Indian Reservation, an important physical and cultural piece of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Dozens of Native American tribes historically lived in or hunted around the GYE, including the Eastern Shoshone, which is one of two tribes that today live on the Wind River Reservation.
On the Wind River Reservation, the Wind River Wild Horse Sanctuary is open to the public. Here, on their 900-acre Double D Ranch, the Oldham family provides professional care in a free-roaming environment to more than 250 un-adoptable wild mustangs. This sanctuary is only one of four Public Off-Range Pastures in partnership with the BLM (Bureau of Land Management), and is the only one on an Indian Reservation. Visit an educational interpretative visitor center or schedule a privately guided tour to learn about wild mustangs and the cultural importance of horses to Indigenous people.
