A Few Local Considerations
*Parking in the Canyon – At designated pullouts only, head in, NOT parallel.
*Trash Disposal – Dumpsters are available at the Ten Sleep Rock Ranch and the Ten Sleep Brewery. Never use a private dumpster or business dumpster in town. When all else fails, pack it home.
*Restrooms – Porta-potties on the Old Road are funded by the local Bighorn Climbers’ Coalition, or pack out waste from the National Forest lands by using Leave No Trace methods.
*Showers – Pay at the Ten Sleep Rock Ranch, the Ten Sleep Brewery, or the Ten Sleep RV Park. Never shower in the town Splash Pad, or the town park public restrooms. Avoid bathing in the Ten Sleep Creek.
*Respect established trails and road closures, especially early and late in the season. If roads are too muddy/snowy you can damage the road and get stuck without cell service! Old Road opens mid June to mid November for vehicles.
*Respect the town’s people and other outdoor users. Don’t invade the public Ten Sleep park and over use your stay. Give back to the resources you take when possible by being a patron of the town’s businesses.

The Ten Sleep Rock Ranch has WiFi for those staying with us. Feel free to make a contribution to one of our blue boxes if use any of our facilities (water, restrooms, WiFi) as a non guest. In town Dirty Sally’s, Ten Sleep Brewery, Saloon, Sleepy Coyote, Daily Bread, and Library have WiFi as well. We strongly suggest you make a purchase to contribute to your use, and park further away from the front entry if staying for a longer period of time. Locals notice and appreciate those that leave these spots available. If you need a private or quiet space (with excellent internet signal) the Washakie County Library in Worland is great for this!
