Curt Gowdy State Park has seven sections of richly varied landscape, flora and fauna decorate the foothills of the Laramie Mountains. The beautiful attractions within Curt Gowdy State Park are near the crossroads of two major interstates, I-80 and I-25. There are three reservoirs, Granite, Crystal and North Crow. Granite offers excellent rainbow trout and kokanee salmon fishing as well as space for water sports. Crystal, the smallest of the reservoirs, has shoreline fishing for brown trout, rainbow trout and kokanee salmon.

Also, enjoy boating while at Crystal (15 horsepower limit). North Crow Reservoir is located 5 miles west of the Headquarters Building. This is an unimproved fishing area. There are no picnic tables, water supply, comfort stations, and is day- use only-very natural. There are a limited number of reservable campsites at the Tumbleweed and Camp Russell campgrounds. Aspen Grove campground is next to a free public horse corral for those visitors who would like to camp with horses.

Within the park is Hynds Lodge, which is listed on the National Register, and an amphitheater available for concerts, theater productions, and many other cultural activities. The area is one of low-lying meadows, gently rolling hills and massive steep granite formations. Wildlife abounds and birdwatchers will be treated to a variety of non-native birds.

Curt Gowdy State Park now features several new camping opportunities.

Jerre’s Haven, named after famed sportscaster Curt Gowdy’s wife, features 13 campsites with electrical hookups.  Jerre’s Haven has sweeping views of the reservoir and is close to many of the park’s most popular amenities, including Aspen Grove trailhead, the causeway, and the camp store.  Like many of Curt Gowdy’s other campgrounds, Jerre’s Haven is tied into the parks trail system making access to the 41-plus miles of IMBA Epic trails as easy as walking out your front door.
