Afton Reviews

2 reviews
This charming small town fills your heart with joy and laughter all year long. During the spring, beauty is everywhere. Summer is filled with bright greens, fresh water, and wild life everywhere. Autumn is filled with every color imaginable. Finally, a winter wonderland. Making the place better, the people of Afton and the surrounding area (Star Valley) make everyone feel at home. This is a truly unique place that makes the heart feel love all year long.
Review Afton
The scenery is to die for. The town itself is kind of bland. You can't beat the hiking or the camping. Amazing outdoor life.
