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.
