Orpha is an unincorporated community in Converse County, Wyoming, United States. Orpha is located near Wyoming Highway 93 9 miles (14 km) northwest of Douglas. The town lies just north of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway and the North Platte River. Several miles to Orpha's northeast lies a historic Hog Ranch saloon, c. 1882, well known for its gambling operations. (See Fort Laramie Three-Mile Hog Ranch for an example of this kind of saloon.) Fort Fetterman lies across the river from Orpha, a few miles downstream.[2]
