I stayed at Big Sandy Lodge from 13-17 September 2016 and loved it. The cabins are basic with no electricity and contain a pot belly stove for heating and kerosene lamps for light. Take your own head lamp for reading. The bathroom facilities were clean and adequate. The lodge has a large communal area tastefully decorated with a rustic feel...

This is our second visit to Big Sandy Lodge in the past two years. My parents first brought me there as a child in 1978 and it is one of my best childhood memories. All these years later and it is still just the same and so wonderful. Isolated, quiet and oh so rustic, we are anxious to go back...

For being remotely located, the Cirque of the Towers is one of the most visited areas of the Wind River Range. The towers are in the Bridger Wilderness located in the Bridger-Teton National Forest Wyoming. To start our hike we spent the night in Big Sandy Lodge. The lodge has been around since 1929 and hasn't changed much since the...

We stayed at Big Sandy Lodge at the start and end of a week's climbing in the Cirque. It was the perfect place to acclimatize - 9100' with a walk up to Dad's lake to wear in the boots. Back to the lodge to enjoy Natasha's excellent cooking then off to the cabin to light the stove. They heat very...

My wife and I just returned from BSL after a 12 year absence. We used to bring our daughters and they still have the blue high chair used by our youngest. It was so great to be back!! Wes and Natasha are fantastic hosts. Natasha is an excellent cook and Wes is so nice and helpful. He started several fires...

I really wasn't sure what our stay would be like--I knew it would be rustic (it is very rustic) but I just didn't know what to expect. The cabins are very basic. There is no electricity, no heat, and the mattresses are ancient (this is my only complaint--and I understand how much maintenance is involved with a place like that,...

My husband brought here for a night after being on horse pack trip in Wind River Range. He has stayed here before while out fly fishing and loves it. It is charming and very rustic, but authentic. This is located right by Big Sandy trail head. This is Finis Mitchell's original fishing camp site. He sold his place in 1975...

If you're looking for luxury accommodations you should (as their web site is careful to point out) give this place a miss. But if you're looking for a comfortable place to stay near some magnificent Wilderness it's just the ticket. We stayed here for two nights before starting a 10 day backpack in the Wind River Mountains. Fresh from 500...

This was our second stay at Big Sandy Lodge (BSL).Two years ago the place was clearly up for sale-meagre, mediocre food, disaffected staff. We returned because of its brilliant location next to the Big Sandy opening to the Wind Rivers. The new owners and team are terrific. The food is plentiful and very good. The horses are sounder and the...

“All of the cabins are similar. Bring an LED lantern. The kerosene lanterns are kind of stinky. They were able to store our luggage while we backpacked.”

“To qualify the rating on cleanliness...the cabins are heated with wood. Bringing wood in and tending the woodstove will naturally create some wood and ash debris inside the cabin. Broom and dustpan provided!”
