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 Supported Public Land Bill Passes

Legacy Public Land Bill Passes

EKW-4th-July-2011c

The U.S. House recently passed the Natural Resources Management Act (S. 47), including the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF).

This Act ensures the enhancement of recreational opportunities in Wyoming through continued federal funding.

“The Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources has been working with our congressional delegation for more than ten years on this process to ensure equal funding would come back to the states and to make certain this vital program would continue.” said Domenic Bravo, Administrator for WY State Parks and the Outdoor Recreation Office.  “The passage of this bill will provide much needed funding for construction and maintenance of outdoor recreation facilities statewide and improved access for the public across the board.”

This legislation provides many improvement opportunities for sportsmen, the shooting sport industry, and conservation, while not harming our very important energy extraction industry and agricultural industries.  It is monumental having this protection for wildlife corridors, clean water, public land access, and the thousands of jobs and billions of dollars that flow into our local economies.  

Since 1965, the LWCF has redirected $3.9 billion in oil and gas leasing royalties to fund more than 40,000 projects across the country, according to the Department of the Interior. More than $70 million (including match) has been spent across Wyoming from the LWCF-state assistance program.  This has built ballparks, playgrounds, swimming pools, greenways and so much more across our great state.
