Saratoga is a town in Carbon County, Wyoming, United States. The population was 1,736 at the 2000 census.

Saratoga is the home of the Steinley Cup microbrew competition, held every August at Veterans Island Park, a playground and picnic facility located on a small island in the North Platte River. There is also a public pool heated by a hot spring located in Saratoga. Saratoga is one of many western communities economically devastated by consolidation, automation and the changing business practices of multinational timber companies. The town's largest private employer, its sawmill, closed in 2003. The town's two largest employers now are the United States Forest Service and Carbon County School District No. 2, both public sector employers. The town's motto is, "Where The Trout Leap In Main Street." The local newspaper is the Saratoga Sun.[3]

From 1978-1982, Carbon County was represented in the Wyoming House of Representatives by Democrat Thomas E. Trowbridge (1930–2009), a dairy farmer from Saratoga. From 1982-1986, Trowbridge was a member of the Wyoming State Senate. He was later appointed by Governor Mike Sullivan to the Wyoming State Board of Equalization. Trowbridge's father, Elton Trowbridge, also a Democrat, held the state House seat from Carbon County from 1961 until his death in office in 1974.
