Over half of this area's land is public lands available for many types of recreation, including camping, fishing, hiking, backpacking, hunting, river rafting, canoeing, cross country skiing, biking, and much more! Mountains and hills to the east with rugged, colorful canyonlands in the west. Rich in western history, the area also features rock art and historical markers from the Fremont and Ute Indian cultures, as well as the homesteaders, miners, and outlaws such as Butch Cassidy. The Yampa River flows through the heart of this country. It is the last major free flowing river in the Colorado River Basin. Abundant with wildlife including deer, elk, antelope, wild horses, mountain lion, bear and more. Fishing is above average.
