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.

"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)

Jessica Moore named new Sinks Canyon State Park Superintendent



Jessica Moore has been appointed the new superintendent of Sinks Canyon State Park, according to the Wyoming Division of State Parks, Historic Sites and Trails. She replaces Jamie Simonson, who recently retired.

Moore is formally educated in Parks, Recreation & Tourism Resources having earned a Master’s of Science from Michigan State University.

She worked as an interpretive ranger before a robust career at a Wildlife Park where she served as a naturalist and education curator. 

Moore and her family sought out beautiful Lander for a move in August of 2021. 

District Manager Kyle Bernis remarks “We are excited to have Jessica on our team and look forward to accomplishing great things at Sinks Canyon.”

Wyoming State Parks looks forward to having Jessica as the next steward of Sinks Canyon State Park, a truly spectacular place that is special to so many.

Fort Phil Kearny State Historic Site, in conjunction with the Trident Theater Company, is announcing the return of their Full Moon Fort tours!

Held annually on the weekend closest to October’s full moon, this event explores the grisly details of fort life in the 1860s. Tour guides will lead groups of 20 people through the fort by lantern-light to experience an evening of true stories that are too eerie to make up.

Tickets are on sale now, and are $10 per person, ages 12 and up. Ages 11 and under are free. Tickets can be purchased online at www.fortphilkearny.com or by calling the Fort at 307-684-7629.

Tours start at 6:30 p.m. and happen every half hour. While the 6:30 tour will be child-friendly, later tours feature true stories told a little more graphicly. 

Tour times fill up quickly so be sure to book early, and all visitors are encouraged to dress warmly for this outdoor event.

Fort Phil Kearny State Historic Site is located at 528 Wagon Box Road, in Banner, Wyo., and is a division of Wyoming State Parks and Cultural Resources.
