Whether seeking solitude or a family get away, the Fremont-Winema National Forests offer a wide array of activities. Fishing, hunting, backpacking, hiking, camping, boating, and leisure driving opportunities abound. In the winter, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and downhill skiing are popular activities.
The Fremont and Winema National Forests' diverse habitats also support a variety of species, making wildlife viewing a unique recreation experience. Big game, such as mule deer, Rocky Mountain elk, and pronghorn antelope, all populate the forests. Several varieties of trout inhabit lakes and streams, as well as warm-water fish, such as large mouth bass. In the spring and fall, migrating geese, ducks and swans are in abundance. Large predators, such as black bears, mountain lions, and bobcats, also live in the forests.
