Wyoming State Parks withdraws plan for 40 temporary campsites near Bartlett Lane at Buffalo Bill State Park

An informational meeting was held last night to hear from local residents regarding 40 temporary campsites near Bartlett Lane at Buffalo Bill State Park. 

"After considering an abundance of public concerns we decided to scratch the temporary campsites near Bartlett Lane", said Brooks Jordan, Wyoming State Parks District Manager.  "Capacity and overcrowding will still be an issue at Buffalo Bill State Park, however we believe we can address these issues by offering temporary campsites at the North Fork Campground and near the South Shore boat ramp."

Buffalo Bill State Park will kick off a formal master planning process this fall or early winter, which will help guide the future use and development of the park.  Considerable public input and stakeholder engagement will be part of the master planning process. 

"The future Buffalo Bill State Park master plan will be critical to balancing the needs of our visitors, the local community, and growing the local economy and tourism product", said Dave Glenn, Wyoming State Parks Deputy Director. “We look forward to working with all constituents, and local community leaders to create, and implement a plan we can all be proud of.”

Information about the master plan process and how to participate will be available in the coming months.  For more information, contact Wyoming State Parks District Manager Brooks Jordan at 307-431-9921.
