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)

Glendo State Park Hosts Campfire, Outdoor Safety Program

unnamed

Contact: Carlo Migliaccio, 307-735-4433

Glendo State Park invites you to join us for a night around the campfire, and a program on outdoor safety on June 22, from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Whiskey Gulch picnic shelter.

The event begins with a demonstration of safe and effective fire-building. Attendees will have the chance to help build the fire, and the roasting of s’mores later in the evening.

Later, Park staff will take guests through several brief, interactive exercises to learn the basics of outdoor survival. Next, the essentials of preparing for a trip outside, and what to do in the event that you become lost, or find yourself in a situation where you need to stay the night outside of an established camp.

No campfire would be complete without s’mores, so the program concludes with a chance for all attendees to roast marshmallows and build s’mores with supplies provided by Rooch’s Marina. This program is open to all members of the public, and is appropriate for all age groups.

Standard park fees will apply, though the event itself has no extra fee for attendance. For more information, please contact Glendo State Park at 307-735-4433.

We look forward to seeing you there!
