Chain Lakes

Wildlife Habitat Management Area - Wyoming

Approximately 32 miles northwest of Rawlins in the Red Desert, Chain Lakes Wildlife Habitat Management Area provides winter habitat for antelope, and protects migration routes for pronghorn traveling between summer and winter ranges. This part of the Red Desert averages six and one-half inches of precipitation each year, and its topography is a flat-to-gently rolling steppe. The elevation ranges from 6,500 feet at the lakes to 6,750 feet on Chain Lakes rim. This management area is ideal for wildlife watching without much human interference. Watch the weather: a rainstorm or snowstorm can hinder vehicle travel due to muddy or snow-drifted roads. Chain Lakes is open all year.
