Jim Bridger of mountain man fame camped in this area many times. The Museum of the Mountain Man located in Pinedale is a must-see attraction, with its excellent displays of artifacts from the fur trade. Ice-cold mountain lakes snuggle into the canyons and other hideaways along the Bridger Wilderness boundary. Most of the camping areas snuggle up against the Bridger Wilderness.

Granite Hot Springs CG. Camped there June 07, the ride was about 10 slow, but scenic miles. Large campground, but never close to filling up. Short jaunt to the river if your looking to cool off, fantastic views from your site. 2 seperate hot springs up the road and a neat waterfall after a short hike.

Granite Hot Springs Campground was excellent. The ameneties are not great, but the scenery is awe-inspiring. Mountains rise up from nowhere, standing over you like a great granite shadow. The creek runs right by the campground; I didn't try the fishing. It was awesome. The road in was horrible. SHARP rocks cover every square inch, so the 5 miles takes about 1/2 hour or more to cover. This would be a good place to visit in the wintertime when snow is covering the rocks.
