"The Star Of All Valleys" "Little Switzerland of America"


The Star Valley Wyoming area extends from the 7600-foot high Salt River Pass on the South End, to about 65 miles North to the Palisades Reservoir area. The Salt River runs the length of the valley as does US Highway 89.


We have twelve communities with Afton being the major center in the Upper Valley (Southern end), Thayne in the Central Valley, and Alpine, in the Lower Valley (North end). We have a population of about 7000 (in 2017), and growing. Farming and ranching along with tourism and recreation are the main activities.


Star Valley is surrounded by three National Forests: the Bridger-Teton National Forest, the Targhee National Forest, and the Caribou National Forest. The Snake River, the Salt River, and the Greys River meet at the Palisades Reservoir. These natural resources offer blue ribbon trout fishing, boating, water skiing, tubing, hunting, camping, hiking, swimming, horseback riding, golfing, and tennis, as well as cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.


The only cold fresh water intermittent spring in North America, which is also the largest of only three known fluctuating springs in the world, is located East of Afton. Just outside Alpine is the Wyoming Elk Winter Refuge where around 1000 elk spend the winter. Thayne is the site of the first winter cutter races ever held and Star Valley continues as the home of the All American Cutter Races every winter. The most powerful and also the most accurate handgun - the .454 Casull - is manufactured in Freedom. World famous Pitts aerobatics aircraft are produced in Afton.


Historically, Star Valley Wyoming is noted for the Lander Cutoff of the Emigrant Trail that passed through the upper valley and was the winter hangout for outlaw Butch Cassidy.


Two private airports, one in Afton and one in Alpine, and commercial airports near Jackson, Wyoming (45 miles from Alpine), and Idaho Falls (75 miles from Alpine), make Star Valley easily accessible any time of year.
