2020 REGULAR CAMPSITE RESERVATION SEASON

UPDATED: June 1, 2020

NON-RESIDENT CAMPING NOW OPEN IN WYOMING STATE PARKS

To support the overall health of the public, Wyoming State Parks have been open to outdoor recreation throughout this pandemic. Because of a relatively low number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the state, camping was opened to Wyoming residents on May 15th. The restriction of out-of-state campers was put in place to cut down on the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

“Our team is excited to be able to increase our economic impact to the State and local economies by bringing in our consumers from around the country.” Darin Westby, agency director of Wyoming State Parks & Cultural Resources said. “Our criteria for opening camping to non-residents has always been when surrounding states opened their camping, and their respective COVID-19 cases began leveling. Now is the time.”

ML2014095Regardless of residency, all persons interested in camping at Wyoming State Parks must still go through the reservation system to secure a campsite at all locations except Hawk Springs State Recreation Area, some sites on the west side of Boysen State Park, and Connor Battlefield State Historic Site near Ranchester (those campgrounds are still open on a first-come, first-served basis). Visitors can still secure a spot without a prior reservation, but must do so through the reservation system upon arrival at their chosen park.

Additionally, headquarters buildings at the various Wyoming State Parks have opened, allowing for the sale of annual day-use and overnight camping permits. Visitors are asked to join staff in adhering to social distancing recommendations whether meeting in offices, recreating at boat ramps, working at fish cleaning stations, or gathering at beaches and other areas.

Cabins and yurts are available for three-day reservations, Friday through Sunday. This will ensure that each structure will be cleaned and disinfected prior to the next reservation.

Wyoming State Parks continues to request that people recreate responsibly so Wyoming State Parks can continue to remain open for all to enjoy.


May 26, 2020 - An update on group campsites: 

There can be more than one camping unit, but no more than 25 people in the group site.  Please continue to abide by COVID 19 modifications and updates so we can keep our parks open to camping.


Cabins and yurts will be available for three-day reservations, Friday through Sunday. This will ensure each structure will be cleaned and disinfected prior to the next reservation.  

             Due to social distancing and CDC guidelines, all playgrounds, group shelters, group campsites, and some indoor facilities will remain closed to the public.

             Social distancing recommendations shall also be adhered to while recreating at boat ramps, fish cleaning stations and other areas where people may congregate.

             The public is reminded that this plan is subject to modification at any time due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 situation. This plan will change due to modifications to social distancing guidelines by the Governor and/or State Health Officer. We continue to request that people recreate responsibly so we can continue to remain open for all to enjoy.

Regular campsite reservations booked after January 1, 2020, can be made no more than four (4) months in advance for arrival dates beginning May 1 through September 30.

Cabin reservations at Keyhole and Boysen State Parks, yurt reservations at Glendo, Guernsey, and Sinks Canyon State Parks and the Tree House at Keyhole State Park are available online year-round and may be made four (4) months in advance. The Lodges at Curt Gowdy and Buffalo Bill State Park, the Amphitheater at Curt Gowdy State Park and the Shelters at Buffalo Bill State Park may be reserved beginning October 1 at 8:00 am for the following season of May 1 through September 30. For additional information on all rental unit facilities such as cabins, yurts, lodges, etc., please visit our Rental Units page.
