Thank you for your interest in our community. We are located on the western slope of the Big Horn Mountains. U.S. Highway 16 and 20 connects to the Black Hills and Yellowstone Park. They meet in Worland, the county seat of Washakie County.
Wyoming, and especially Worland, offers a great deal to its residents. We are blessed with a low density of people, our taxes are among the lowest in the nation, and we have a very high quality of life.
The Worland area has both local and regional opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts. Situated between the Big Horn Mountains to the east and the Absaroka Range to the west, area residents have accesss to fishing, boating, backpacking, and hunting. Water-skiing and fishing are area favorites at nearby Boysen Reservoir. The reservoir spills into the spectacular Wind River Canyon becoming the Big Horn River at the mouth of the canyon. Wilderness areas are within a 2-hour drive. More than 75 percent of the land within Washakie County is publicly owned. Golfers will appreciate Worland's 18-hole municipal course. Winter also affords many recreational opportunities such as downhill skiing, cross country skiing, and snowmobiling.
Worland has a highly skilled and motivated labor force. As a result of various industries and government agencies in the area, Washakie County has attracted a large number of well-educated, highly trained and accomplished people. Admiral Beverage, a regional Pepsi-Cola bottler, Crown, Cork & Seal, a beverage can manufacturer, Wyoming Sugar, a sugar refining mill, Wyoming Gas and Natural Gas Processing, providing gas service to the Worland Area and surrounding communities, Washakie Memorial Hospital, R.T. Communications, and the Bureau of Land Management are the major employers in our community.
Worland's schools are part of the Washakie County School District #1 which is comprised of five schools with a combined enrollment of 1,726 students in grades K-12.
