Sugarloaf

Awesome fishing in Wyoming’s high county…

At 10,700 ft elevation, Sugarloaf is one of the highest National Forest campgrounds in the country.

“The campground is a single loop meandering along a spruce and fir-lined hillside with 16 campsites in the midst of a fisherman’s paradise of 102 recreational lakes. This is a rustic, picturesque campground where every site has delightful views of the Snowy Range.

The campground is convenient to a variety of hiking trails and two crystal clear snow-melt lakes – Libby and Lewis Lakes offering Brook, cutthroat and brown trout. Three popular trailheads originate in this area. ┬áThis area is located in Wyoming’s Snowy Range, 40 miles west of Laramie.

We caught brook, cutbow and brown trout circumnavigating Libby Lake

Beautiful Lewis Lake. We caught few fish, but enjoyed the hike around the shore.

Great meals and conversation with our friends the Yangs

It’s still Spring at this elevation. The wild flowers were lovely
