High Water Campground Improvements - Boysen State Park

Exciting New Improvements Coming to Boysen State Park!

Boysen State Park is planning campground improvements at Tough Creek and Cottonwood Campgrounds to provide for changes identified in the Master Plan and to develop improved campsites to utilize during high water events. We want to hear from you!  Even though our Master Plan process had a ton of public involvement, we wanted to engage with the public again during our implementation phase.

The Wind River Range continues to experience high snowpack, resulting in high runoff and causing the banks of Boysen to flood at certain times of the year. This trend, along with public comments, has resulted in these proposed improvements.

The campsites developed at Tough Creek will include pull-thru campsites, back-in double campsites, group campsites, and tent campsites, various water and beach access points as well as a new vault toilet above the flood line.

Improved group campsites above the flood zone will also be developed at Cottonwood Campground to provide for times when the beach camping is under water.
