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)

Fire Ban Instituted for Glendo State Park June 21, 2022

June 21, 2022


To help protect the natural resources in Platte County, open fires are restricted at Glendo and Guernsey State Parks beginning June 22, 2022.

Despite these fire restrictions instituted by the Platte County Commission, an enjoyable camping experience is still possible. Propane grills/stoves and charcoal grills can still be used to prepare popular camping dishes and provide adequate warmth. These grills must have covers/lids and be within an arm’s length when lit. A variety of other imaginative ideas can help preserve the camping experience such as solar lights in the firepit.

However, as always, the possession of fireworks is prohibited in all Wyoming State Parks.

Camping available throughout state for those displaced by Yellowstone closure


With the closure of all roads into Yellowstone National Park due to “multiple road and bridge failures, mudslides and other issues.” travelers may want to look at accessing camping and other accommodations prior to getting to northwestern Wyoming.              

There are state parks located throughout the state with most on the way to Yellowstone National Park. Guernsey, Glendo and Boysen are located along the route from Cheyenne to Casper and continuing on to Shoshoni, Thermopolis and Cody (I-25 to US 20-26, etc).

Travelers traveling along the I-80 corridor, Cheyenne to Rock Springs or Evanston and then north will find Seminoe State Park near Rawlins.

Traveling along I-90, Keyhole State Park is located between the South Dakota State Line and Gillette with Medicine Lodge State Archaeological Site located south of Greybull near Hyattville before traveling west to Cody.

Other camping opportunities are listed on the Wyoming Outdoor Recreation Wonder Map found at https://wyooutdoorrecreation.wyo.gov/. The Wonder Map lists, in addition to state park campgrounds, national park, forest service, local and private campgrounds throughout the state and provides information such as cost and amenities.

The Wonder Map also provides information on a variety of activities like hiking, biking, fishing and others.

Additionally, NPS officials state that they “will not know the timing of the park’s reopening until flood waters subside and we’re able to assess the damage throughout the park. Visitors planning on coming to Yellowstone in the upcoming weeks should pay close attention to the status of road conditions,” the NPS added.
