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.

Wyoming ranked best in outdoor winter recreation

unnamed

Wyoming is the best state in the nation for outdoor winter recreation, according to a new national ranking, surpassing both Utah, who placed second, and Colorado, third.

The rankings were released earlier this week by GoAllOutdoors.com.

In announcing the ranking, the website stated, “Wyoming topped our list as the top state for outdoor winter activities, and for good reason. This state has some of the most public land acreage in the country, and is one of the five mountain states on our list.

“Wyoming is a winter wonderland,” said Domenic Bravo Administrator for state parks and the outdoor recreation office. “There are so many outdoor recreation adventures you can have in a setting that is second to none.”

You can see these #1 rankings elsewhere like Wyoming’s Snowmobile Trails have been ranked in the top five destinations by SNOWEST over the last few years and our Jackson Hole Ski Resort has been ranked 8 years in a row as #1 by Forbes Magazine.  Wyoming state parks have been recognized over the last two cycles as one of the top four state parks systems in the nation by NRPA.

Wyoming is used to being a state of 1st, with the first National Park, The first national monument and this year we commemorate the 150th anniversary of being the first government entity to grant women the right to vote.
