"We visit Wyoming every year on Spring Break. Pinedale and the surrounding area is our favorite destination. We stayed up at Cow Cabins for a few days this year and were in heaven. The people of Pinedale are fantastic and the reason my children don't go to Disneyworld!" -Texas
"We have gone to Green River Lakes for several years now. And just love the area. The town and the people are the best... We check your web site all the time to see how things are doing on Pinedale... We are just drawn to the Pinedale area... " Ron & Terry Bunge, Iowa
"This year will be the 8th summer I've visited Lozier's Box R Ranch and Pinedale. I love it, everybody is so friendly and the town is so clean. The best break from East Coast stress and crowds that I can imagine!" -Virginia
"My wildest imagination was far exceeded by what I saw in the web page on your community. Rivers, lakes, prairie, the Rockies, and a history that looks like it came out of an old west novel." -Florida
"Spent 3 delightful days early this week at our cabin at SBHO. My wife and I got in on cross country skis and had the whole place to ourselves. The new snow on Monday morning had clung to the trees for the first few moring hours which was extremely attractive. Got to see a large (est. ca. 500) flock of Bohemian Waxwings above the Fremont Lake CG. Certainly was good to be back in Pinedale area. Especially appreciated the library allowing us to use their internet connection to vote in the Arizona primary!" - Arizona

"Your web site is one of the most complete sites I have found. This site answered EVERY question I could think of. Some of the information was about questions I hadn't even dreamed of asking. The photography is stunning. My compliments to the photographer(s). This place is held in very high regard by my wife and me. We used Elkhart as entrance into the wilderness for a 10 day hike three years ago. It was a very enjoyable trip. The best experience was finding three (3) restaurants where we could get excellent Mexican food. Great place. Also good coffee!!" - Utah

Award for "The Best Gift Shop
"We had trouble assigning a category to this wonderful spot. There are many good things to say about The Moose Creek Trading Company. We found it during an emergency stop during a late spring blizzard while passing through Pinedale, Wyoming.
We thought of giving the award to them for "Best Cafe in Wyoming", because of the atmosphere offered by its associated restaurant. We wanted an Egg Sandwich. That item wasn't on the menu, but they made us one anyway It was the LARGEST sandwich we had ever seen and was prepared on the sweetest, most delicious bread we have tasted in our lives. But "Best Egg Sandwich in Wyoming" didn't seem to do justice to this place. We pondered giving an award for "Best Restrooms in Wyoming". They were spotless and complete with furniture that made you want to stay in there for awhile.
We settled on "Best Gift Shop in Wyoming". The Moose Creek Trading Company has the look, smell and feel of a fine antique shop. Prices are reasonable and there are a variety of Wyoming related gifts.
Overall, it has become one of our favorite places and we guarantee we will be stopping again, every time we are in the vicinity of Pinedale.
The Wyoming Companion is proud to award The Moose Creek Trading Company in Pinedale, Wyoming as the "Best Gift Shop in Wyoming" for 1996-1997. "
"Our family spent a night at the Best Western Pinedale Inn on our trip home from Yellowstone. We fell in love with Pinedale. Such friendly people and a tidy town. Wrangler Cafe is a great spot., Fife's we have to come back for breakfast. You have good reason to be proud of Pinedale, thank you." - Illinois
"I was in Pinedale this summer, had a blast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" - Wisconsin
