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)

News & Updates

Spring is Right Around the Corner

Spring is right around the corner and the weather is warming up at Glendo State Park. The ice has been very good for most of the winter, but the edge is getting softer after having several days of warmer weather. Please use caution around the ice and start thinking about getting your boat ready in the coming weeks so you can get on the lake when the ice clears. 

Camping in March and April can be very enjoyable and you don't need a reservation until May 1st. There are electrical hook-ups in Two Moon, Reno Cove, and at Sandy Beach Dune Campgrounds. If you are up for a new adventure call the park at 307-735-4433 and rent a yurt. The yurts have a bunk bed with double matresses on top and bottom, a twin bed, and a twin trundle bed, a table for 6 people, and a heater that will bring the temperature up about 20 degrees above outside temperatures. All for $40 per night plus standard camping fees required per vehicle. 

Spring is one of the most popular times to bike the 45+ miles of mountain bike trails that Glendo has to offer. Please, use your best judgement when you ride to stay off the trails when they are muddy. 

Have fun! 


Hot Springs State Park Recruiting Legend Rock Volunteers


Hot Springs State Park is recruiting volunteers to work at Legend Rock State Archaeology Site this summer. 

The site is open every day from May 1 to September 30 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The site is set up for a camp host with water, sewer and electricity. Volunteers can use their own RV/camper or use a State Parks provided 25 ft. trailer.

Volunteers can commit to one week, one month or two months. Site hosts will work five days a week and open and close the site and visitor center. They will also be responsible for cleaning the restroom and the grounds.

An orientation will be given to the volunteers so they are familiar with the history and the rock art that is associated with this very unique area.  The visitor center is air conditioned.

Day volunteers are also needed to fill in for the camp host when they have their days off.  If interested, please call Kevin Skates at 307-921-2057 or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
