About - Glendo

Description:

Glendo State Park Description: Glendo State Park is located in the south-eastern part of Wyoming. The reservoir is one of Wyoming’s top Walleye fisheries and is known for other water based recreation. With approximately 12,000 surface acres of water, it gives great opportunity to many different users at the same time. There are six boat launching areas on the park. The park has 21 different camping areas with a total of 544 campsites. Reservations can be made for some of the campsites. There are many picnic shelters to help keep the afternoon sun from beating down on you. Large group shelters are available to reserve for larger gatherings.

Glendo is the home to a newly developed non-motorized trail system. It is slowly becoming a popular destination spot for some of the best mountain biking in Wyoming. There is approximately 45 miles of trails. There are four trailheads at located at Two Moon Campground, the Wetlands Area, the Dam Overlook, and at Sandy Beach Dune Shelter.


History:

Construction on Glendo Dam started in 1954 and was finished in 1958. The dam was constructed by the Bureau of Reclamation. The primary purpose of the reservoir is to store water for irrigation purposes and to help control flooding. This is the reason that the water level fluctuates at Glendo so severely each year.
