Keep in mind that the Wind River Mountains are in a remote wilderness area. Staying dry is essential for your safety. Cotton and down are cold when wet, however fleece, wool and polyester fibers like Hollofil are warm when wet. Hypothermia is more prevalent on summer camping trips than winter, so be prepared and use proper outdoor clothing and gear for an enjoyable wilderness vacation!

Pack your gear in nylon zipper duffels 26" long, or similar. No large army duffels. Try to limit personal gear to 30 lbs. Buy your fishing licenses before coming up to Dickinson Park. Fishing rods must be in hard cases, shorter is safer on a pack horse. Riding helmets are not provided by the ranch, you may bring your own.
