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.

"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)

Curt Gowdy State Park to host first-ever Kindness Day

August 2, 2021


The Curt Gowdy Family, Wyoming State Parks Director Darin Westby and park staff announce the very first Kindness Day at Curt Gowdy State Park, August 7 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.

This effort is a labor of love from the family of the renown sportscaster, passionate conservationist and humanitarian for which the park was named.  Kindness Day is part of a larger initiative to create a one of a kind Little House on the Park, blending a glorious pioneer past and a fairytale to teach children about kindness to all.  

Its programming and artistic activities will teach, inspire and emotionally impact the behaviors and importance of Kindness to children between ages of three to 12-years-old. 

This inaugural Kindness Day incorporates art, games, storytelling, interpretive programming and delicious treats and through it all, we hope children will experience a true venue of love and kindness.

This event is free to children and their families and is made possible by the Curt Gowdy State Park Family Fund, a nonprofit charitable 501c3 organization.  

Come join the children and express the love of kindness as we invite you to shine the light of love and joy to our world.  For further information please contact Christina Bird, District Manager at 307-631-1110 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Blue-green Algae advisory issued for Curt Gowdy State Park causeway

August 2, 2021


Harmful Cyanobacteria Bloom, Recreational Use Advisory issued for west causeway area of Curt Gowdy State Park

A routine screening alerted Wyoming State Parks to a blue-green algae bloom in the body of water known as the Causeway, located on the west side of Granite reservoir. 

Harmful cyanobacteria, also known as blue-green algae, can form harmful blooms in slow-moving water during the later summer when water temperatures are warmer. These blooms are considered harmful because they produce toxins and other irritants that can pose a risk to humans, pets, livestock and wildlife. The WDH issues recreational use advisories when cyanobacterial cell densities or cyanotoxin concentrations pose a risk to people and pets engaging in water related recreational activities.

The recreational use advisory is currently only for the body of water known as the Causeway. This is the small body of water to the west of the road where Crow Creek enters Granite Reservoir. Crystal reservoir, Granite reservoir, Upper North Crow reservoir and all campgrounds and park facilities remain unaffected and are open for business.  Visitors are advised to err on the side of caution and use their best judgement when recreating in this area.
