Welcome back to Wyoming State Parks
 

 

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)

Public Invited to Attend Virtual State Park Fee Proposal Public Meetings

unnamed

October 22, 2020

 

 The public is invited to attend a series of public information meetings regarding proposed Wyoming State Park and Historic Site fee increases expected to go into effect on January 1, 2021.

The public meetings, which can be accessed either virtually or by phone, will provide important information about these proposed changes.

Public comment regarding the changes will be made via the Secretary of State‘s website at http://rules.wyo.gov or via email or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. through November 14.

“All revenue collected through visitor fees goes right back to Wyo Parks’ sites to fund operation/maintenance costs, new projects, site enhancements and resource protection” Wyoming State Parks Deputy Director Dave Glenn said. “Current revenue shortfalls and necessary budget reductions will require an increase in revenue in order to keep state parks and historic sites open, staffed, and maintained.  Fees collected from visitors do not fully fund Wyo Parks operations.  Wyo Parks also relies on general fund dollars and funding from other sources such as grants, motorboat gas taxes, and donations.”

Public information meetings will be held via google meets and via phone under the following schedule. 

October 26, 12 pm to 1 pm

Google meet id meet.google.com/fgv-jdbv-ydo

Phone number 1-575-305-4675 (pin:827478303)

 

November 2, 5 pm to 6 pm

Google meet id meet.google.com/kpc-xany-evk

 Phone Number 1-414-909-7595  (pin: ‪440 636 765#)

A copy of the proposed rules may be obtained on the Wyoming Administrative Rules system: https://rules.wyo.gov by using the advanced search for proposed rules, or by contacting Wyo Parks Headquarters at 2301 Central Avenue, Cheyenne, WY 82002, or by email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
