➤ Boaters urged to watch for debris at State Parks
Watercraft users are reminded to be vigilant in looking for driftwood, logs, trees and hazards that may be hidden under the water’s surface. Rapid runoff during this time of year can result in a variety of objects flowing into the state’s reservoirs; objects that can cause damage to a watercraft or motor.
There are still opportunities for great boating and fishing at Wyoming’s State Parks, but by watching out for debris in the water, watercraft users can ensure that the trip to the lake or reservoir isn’t a costly one.
Ranger Recreational Use Report
For the week of:
June 20th, 2016 thru June 26th, 2016
We still have strong water flow into the park at this time. The weather report for the coming week is calling for sun and rising temperatures so should be great for coming to the park. The trails should be drying out so mountain biking should be awesome. I have spoken to many fishermen and they have told me that the fishing is still real spotty right now. There have been some fish caught around the tree areas so you may try there.
The mountain biking trails are somewhat muddy right now but the camping is awesome as the park is very pretty this time of year. The camping areas in Indian Point, Broken Arrow, Burnt Wagon and Muddy Bay are closed as is the road. Please do not pass the road closed signs as we are strictly enforcing the closures so the roads do not get severely damaged. Thank you for your cooperation. We have lost a few sites due to high water in Sandy Beach and Bennett but there are still plenty of spots available so come on out and enjoy the park.
A friendly reminder of some park rules that are violated quite consistently:
Glendo Park Law Enforcement will be strictly enforcing these rules this summer so please let your friends and family know. We want your use of the park to be enjoyable and with everyone adhering to the rules then everyone is able to have a good time.
Please no glass containers outside of your vehicle or camper while on the park.
All pets must be on a leash at all times while in the park.
All campers must occupy the site nightly.
Saving of sites is not allowed.
- Quiet hours from 10pm to 6am. No generators or electronics running outside of the camper during this time.
Please stop at either the main fee booth or at the fee canisters and purchase your permits if you do not have an annual permit. There are several fee canisters that you can use if you don’t enter the park at the main site so you can stop and pay fees if you don’t have annual permits. Permits are being strictly enforced as well so please insure you have your permit. Also 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 or your windshield. Thank you for the assistance with that.
Wishing you all a wonderful time while recreating at Glendo State Park.
Happy Trails,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.
Lt. David Graves
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.
