Facility:Medicine Lodge State Archaeological Site
Description:The Medicine Lodge site has long been known for its Indian petroglyphs and pictographs. They are directly associated with important human habitation sites for thousands of years. Within a 12-mile radius of Medicine Lodge, five distinct vegetation zones can be found. These range from the desert basin to the big mountain meadows. A variety of Wyoming's animals are here at the site. In addition to porcupines, prairie dogs, bobcats and mountain lions, there are many others to see. There is excellent fishing for brook and brown trout. Don't forget to bring your binoculars, as there are over 100 species of birds that call Medicine Lodge home.

The site includes approximately 25 camping spots with fire grills, picnic tables and vault toilets plus a visitor center and nature trail which is located on the grassy areas along the Medicine Lodge creek.
