For the week of:
January 8th, 2017 thru January 15th, 2017
Winter has arrived in the great State of Wyoming. All of the campgrounds are currently open. The fishing is moderate at this point with ice forming and being reported to be about 4 inches thick near Waters Point and thicker as you go North on the lake. There have been some reports of perch being caught but pretty slow on other species. Please be sure to use caution when entering the ice as it is still forming. The mountain biking trails are all covered with snow right now so be sure to bring your fat tire bikes and enjoy the outdoors.
Platte County as well as Glendo State Park has lifted the Fire Ban so there can be open fires but they must be in a State Approved Fire Ring and attended to at all times.
Please stop at the fee canisters and purchase your permits if you do not have an annual permit as the fee booths are closed for the season. There are several fee canisters that you can use to pay fees if you don’t have annual permits. Permits are being strictly enforced as well so please insure you have your permit. Please be sure to place your receipt in the window of your vehicle on the driver’s side so it can be easily seen. Also be sure to remove your past year annual permits and just use the current year and place it in the lower left portion of your windshield. Thank you for the assistance with that.
Please enjoy your time while recreating at Glendo State Park.

Click here for more information!Glendo State Park is one of southern Wyoming’s most popular boating parks. It offers visitors water-skiing, fishing and other water- based activities. Fishing is so good that Glendo has several fish records. Day-use and overnight facilities feature improved campsites, comfort stations, tables and grills. A commercial concession at the reservoir provides visitors with complete marina services, motel units and fishing equipment.
Glendo State Park is quickly becoming a trails destination. Since 2010, Glendo State Park has established over 40 miles of diverse non-motorized trails stretching from the Marina to Sandy Beach. This year we plan to create another 5 miles of trail in the southern end of the park.
Red Hills and Waters Point: Camping areas have some shade trees and close access to the lake with a rock and gravel shoreline. There is a protected bay for tying boats. Grounds are not very level, and sites are exposed to the wind. Approximately 45 sites.
Reno Cove: Boat launching area has limited camping area and a few shade trees. Close access to lake with a rock and mud shoreline. There is a protected bay for tying boats. Grounds are not level, and sites are exposed to wind. Approximately 30 sites.
Custer Cove, Soldier Rock and Colter Bay: Camping areas have shade trees and close access to lake with a mud and rock shoreline. The bay is protected for tying boats. Some level sites offer fair protection from the wind. Approximately 40 sites.
Whiskey Gulch and Sagebrush: Large camping areas along the south side of a large bay with good access to the shoreline of mud and gravel. There are shade trees and lots of grass. Level sites with good wind protection and some protected areas for tying boats. Approximately 100 sites.
Two Moon: Our largest and best camping area has many pine trees for shade and wind protection. It’s located on a bluff overlooking the lake with no access to the shoreline by foot. Most sites are level with paved roads through the area. Approximately 200 sites.
Sandy Beach:This area is large with many trees above the high waterline. There are approximately two miles of sandy beach for swimming, waterskiing, etc. However, all vehicles, including campers, are no longer allowed on the beach. There are a limited number of reservable campsites. New camping areas were recently built away from the shoreline. No protection for tying boats. Room enough here for hundreds, sometimes crowds in the thousands. This campground was completely renovated between 2005-2007.
Elk Horn: The boat launching area has limited camping spaces with some shade trees. Close access to lake with a mud shoreline. The boat ramp is a short season ramp normally unusable in early July due to receding water levels. Approximately 20 sites.
