Wyoming Forests Bigfoot
If you’re looking for a great place to head out and search for Sasquatch, Wyoming is probably not your top pick for where to go. But there have been 28 sightings posted by the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization which is not nothing.
Considering Wyoming has access to both national parks and forests—including a portion of Yellowstone National Park—it actually doesn’t seem that far off that you’d see a Sasquatch wandering in the forests.
If you’re looking to catch sight of one in Wyoming, these are the best four counties to take a look:
Park County Wyoming SightingsIf you’re itching to track down Sasquatch in Wyoming, then your best bet is to explore Park County which has the largest number of sightings to-date reported by the BFRO.
Park County is at the top northwest corner of the state and features parts of both Yellowstone National Park and Shoshone National Forest. There have been nine different sightings logged by the BFRO since the 1970s.
The earliest sightings they have on record take place between 1970 and 1980. While it’s all logged as one sighting, it’s actually a collection of incidents reported by a Yellowstone backcountry ranger. They range from animal reactions to an actual Sasquatch sighting.
The most recent Sasquatch sighting in Park County was in July 2002, when a family of four saw a Sasqtch around noon near Mount Washburn in Yellowstone National Park.
While Park County isn’t the only place in Wyoming where you can find treed and mountainous areas, perfect for Sasquatch to hideout and live, it does feature significant sections of two large areas of prime Sasquatch habitat.
Lincoln County SightingsLincoln County comes in at number two for Sasquatch incidents in the state. This county can be found on the west side of the state, bordering Utah and encompassing the most southern section of the forest area that starts at Yellowstone National Park and features Wyoming Peak.
The earliest sighting in this area logged by the BFRO took place in August of 1986. Hikers reported seeing “three upright animals” hanging around as they approached their vehicle. More recently in 2003, a local bear hunter reported seeing a Sasquatch while he was approaching his bait site.
Carbon County SightingsThere is a tie for the third most popular place to find Sasquatch in the state, and one of the spots goes to Carbon County where there are three sightings listed on the BFRO. Located on the south edge of the state bordering Colorado that includes a section of the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest.
The oldest of the three sightings took place in June 1987 when a group of young squirrel hunters saw a juvenile Sasquatch. The latest was in September 2008, when another creature was seen lurking around an elk hunting camp in the Medicine Bow National Forest.
Teton County SightingsThe final Sasquatch hot-spot is in a tie for third place with Carbon County. Teton County also has three logged sightings from the BFRO. This area of the state features Grand Teton National Park—another great Sasquatch habitat.
The oldest sighting they have listed is actually from an article printed in the June 11, 1980, in the Idaho Falls. The article talks about two men who spot a Sasquatch-esque creature in the area. But the most recent sighting comes from June 2000 when campers observe a seven-foot being outside of their RV.
Finding Sasquatch in WyomingWhile we mostly associate Sasquatch with the Pacific Northwest states, you seem to have a pretty fair chance spotting one in Wyoming especially if you hangout in Park County.
If you’re itching to head out to Wyoming and see if you can get your hands on some Sasquatch evidence or a half-decent image, make sure you bring your Sasquatch Syndicate hoodie to get you through those colder nights by the fire.

St. Louis County, nestled in the north-east portion of Minnesota, stretching from the edge of Lake Superior to the Canadian border, has a whopping 20 sightings reported by the Bigfoot Research Organization. That’s 27 percent of the state’s sightings.
Compared to St. Louis County, the next largest collection of sightings in any Minnesota County can be found in Cass County. They’ve seen a total of four that have been recorded by the BRO since June of 2006 when workers found possible Sasquatch footprints near Bena.
So, what makes the Minnesota Bigfoot Forests such an attractive place for Sasquatch to hangout? Is it the forest, food or even water access? Let’s dig in, shall we?
Sasquatch is one of the most geographically diverse cryptids. There’s a version of one of these creatures on every continent on Earth, but the North American creature is said to be a forest dweller that loves dense wooded areas.
The woods in Minnesota, particularly those in the St. Louis County’s Superior National Forest, are perfect for these creatures. Considering we haven’t seen much of them by way of physical proof, we assume that they’re shy and a large forest is perfect for them to hide out in.
Not to mention, there is plenty of material to create tree structures that are said by some to be signs of Sasquatch life in certain wooded areas. Whether they’re boundary distinctions, a way to get food or a mating ritual—the tree-rich forests in Minnesota are the perfect environment.
While the habitat of the Minnesota Bigfoot Forests are great for Sasquatch, there is also food abound for these creatures. Truthfully, we don’t know what they eat but we suspect them to have an omnivorous diet of raw meat and fish like it’s Florida cousin the Skunk Ape.
The Superior National Forest is home to a number of creatures that could make up the perfect Sasquatch diet. There are the big guys—moose, wolves, lynx and black bear, though we’re not sure they eat all of those. You can also find birds including 155 nesting species.
The forests in Minnesota also contain 455,000 acres of surface water plus 1,300 cold water streams and 950 miles of warm water streams. The water is not only necessary to drink, but it also includes a collection of fish like walleye, northern pike, smallmouth bass and a whole collection of trout.
Searching for Sasquatch in St. Louis County
If you’re looking for Sasquatch in Minnesota, St. Louis County is also your best bet. You can head out to search all on your own if you want to, with 20 different sightings reported through the BFO you might have a decent chance to see one. Sightings in this area date back to 1973 when a couple were chased by “howling screams” through the forest. And are as recent as April 2018, when someone saw one crossing the MN-73 in the middle of the day near the town of Cook.
There have been sightings all around St. Louis County. So, if you’re looking to catch sight of Sasquatch this summer, Minnesota is a pretty good bet. Don’t forget to bring your Sasquatch Syndicate trucker hat because that sun can get crazy!
