Welcome to Wyoming State Parks, Historic Sites, & Trails

Finding your perfect vacation spot has never been easier!

Mountain bikes, boats and fishing poles are really just toys for grown-ups; so go be a kid again. After all, we've got plenty of trails for getting mud on those tires, including those in Guernsey, Buffalo Bill and Curt Gowdy State Parks.

If making a splash is more your style, we've got space for water sports and fishing at our many reservoirs . Once you're done playing, soak those bones in the therapeutic mineral water at Hot Springs State Park.

When bedtime rolls around, park the RV or roll out a sleeping bag; because at our overnight sites, all it takes to check in is a zip of the tent.

"I have the distinction of being one of a handful of people who has been to every Wyoming State Park and Historic site. Maybe the only one who has done it during one month! These are among the best kept secrets in the United States." -- Alan O'Hashi (Facebook Review)

Wyoming State Parks Celebrates "Every Kid in a Park" for Third Straight Year


For the third year, Wyoming State Parks is partnering with state and federal partners in celebration of a program instituted in 2016 during the National Park Service’s 100th year anniversary. As part of this effort, Wyo Parks will sponsor and promote “Every Kid in a Park”.

The “Every Kid in a Park” program provides every 4th grader nationwide the opportunity to obtain a pass that grants the student and their family free admission to more than 2,000 federally managed lands including national parks, monuments, forests, wildlife refuges and more.

Fourth graders, as well as parents and educators, can get passes by visiting the program’s website at: www.everykidinapark.gov

As a complement to the federal program, Wyo Parks will honor the “Every Kid in a Park” passes through August 31, 2018. Passes are good for free entrance/day use at any Wyoming state parks, historic sites, or recreation areas. 

Additional information and guidelines for use of the passes at Wyo Parks facilities is available online at: http://wyoparks.state.wy.us/index.php/every-kid-in-a-park
