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)

            Youth from across the Bighorn Basin are invited to the upcoming Medicine Lodge Kids Outdoor Day - an exciting and fun filled day of outdoor activities for kids Aug. 24 at Medicine Lodge State Archaeological Site in Hyattville.  

            “This is a great opportunity for kids to get outside, have fun and learn a new outdoor skill,” said Tara Hodges, information and education specialist with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department.  “ Pre-registration is required and those that register by Aug. 7 will receive a free t-shirt and water bottle. To ensure a quality experience space is limited so we encourage participants to register soon.” 

            Participants will be divided into age groups, then rotate through six activity stations.   Children ages 8-10 will practice archery, cast fishing poles, shoot air rifles and learn about rockhounding, basic camping skills and macro invertebrates.   Kids ages 11-12 will learn how to use a GPS, shoot .22 rifles, pan for gold, throw atl atls and dig for artifacts.   Ages 13 and over will sharpen their shotgun skills, practice on a ropes course, cast fly rods, learn about birding and investigate a wildlife crime scene with professionals from the Wyoming Game and Fish Forensics Lab in Laramie.  

            Once again, the Little Explorers tent will offer children ages 7 and under an opportunity to participate in activities accompanied by a parent that include nature bingo, making animal tracks, fish painting and much more. The Little Explorers tent will be open 8:30 - 11:30 a.m.

            The event, co-sponsored by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department and Wyoming State Parks, will take place at Medicine Lodge State Archaeological Site in Hyattville. Participants should be prepared to spend the entire day outdoors, bring plenty of drinking water and sunscreen and wear comfortable, close-toed shoes.  Lunch will be provided.  

            Check-in on the day of the event is between 7:30 - 8:15 a.m.; activities will begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude by 3:30 p.m.  Registration forms can be downloaded from the Game and Fish website or obtained by contacting the Cody Game and Fish office at 307-527-7125 or Medicine Lodge State Archaeological Site at 307-469-2234.  A $15.00 fee is due at time of registration.  Space is limited to 24 participants per age group and will be filled on a first registration basis.
