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)

Firewood available at Sandy Beach

Do you need firewood for the winter? There is a large pile of cottonwood logs available near Sandy Beach Campground at Glendo State Park that was removed in the spring of 2017 during a tree trimming project. Most of the wood is cut into  8 to 10 foot logs. If you are needing firewood for personal use, come on out to the park and help yourself to as much wood as you need. 
The firewood is free, however you are more than welcome to leave a donation. A donation canister has been placed by the wood pile and all donations will stay at Glendo State Park.


Wyoming State Parks Hosts Bike Your Park Day, September 30

            Experience Wyoming’s State Parks on two wheels during “Bike Your Park Day,” September 30, a national event that encourages people to discover parks by bicycle.

            This is a Wyoming State Parks Kids eXtreme event. Free admission is granted to kids, their parents and other adults who participate in Bike Your Park Day.

            Last year, more than 11,000 people in all 50 states and 10 countries participated in the inaugural Bike Your Park Day. Adventure Cycling Association, a nonprofit bicycling organization, coordinates the event nationally and expects an increased turnout compared to last year’s event.

            Riders, especially minors are encouraged to wear bike helmets.

            Details for special Bike Your Park Day events at various Wyoming State Parks will be made available in the near future. Information about these rides will be available on the Wyoming State Parks website www.wyoparks.org.


Several Wyoming State Parks, Curt Gowdy, Glendo and Guernsey, offer many miles of trails suitable for mountain and fat bike riding year round and are popular destinations throughout the year.
