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)

Fall is a great time to visit Glendo

The leaves are changing colors, massive flocks of migratory birds are stopping over on the reservoir on their way south, and the other wildlife species have come out of hiding now that park visitation has slowed down. If you don't have a set of binoculars please stop by the park office during business hours and check-out a free birding packpack. 

The walleye fishing has been really good for the past few weeks with a few anglers reporting walleye being caught over 27 inches long. Note that the boat ramps at Reno Cove and Whiskey Gulch are the only open ramps as of October 6th. The water level in the reservoir is rising a few inches per day. 

The mountain bike trails are in great condition. Please use your best judgement during rainy weather.

Reservations are not required for camping until May and there are electrical hook-ups in Two Moon, Reno Cove, and at Sandy Beach campground. Also, if you have not taken the opportunity to stay in one of the new yurts in Two Moon Campground you may want make a reservation and come spend the night (they have heaters installed). 

Most of the water systems have been winterized, so you will need to bring  your own water or fill your tanks at the dump station. 

Take advantage of these great outdoor recreational opportunities before winter sets in at the park. 

If you have any questions call 307-735-4433.
