Bordering the Wind River Reservation and nestled near several mountain ranges, Riverton, Wyoming offers a rich, Native American cultural experience and countless opportunities for outdoor adventure.
Stay at the Wind River Hotel & Casino, owned and operated by the Northern Arapaho Tribe. Try an artisan Indian Taco at the hotel’s Red Willow restaurant, then explore the Northern Arapaho Experience Room where you’ll learn the stories of the Northern Arapaho Tribe through paintings, pictures and artifacts. Every week in the summer, the experience room hosts Native American dance performances. End your trip by taking the short drive to Castle Gardens Petroglyph Site – sandstone resembling a castle where Native Americans once carved artwork thousands of years ago. Be sure to watch out for Riverton’s annual events, including its colorful Hot Balloon Rally and the 1838 Mountain Man Rendezvous.
