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. All campsites are by reservation only. 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 Restricts Open Flames

unnamed

August 26, 2020

 

Curt Gowdy State Park bans all open flames within the park, propane grills still allowed.

 

Due to very high temperatures and very little precipitation, Curt Gowdy State Park bans open fires in the park, effective immediately. 

This ban is in place in order to help protect natural resources and our guests in the park.  Hot and extremely dry conditions persist in the area causing extreme fire risk throughout the park and surrounding forest.

Despite the fire ban, a fun and positive camping experience is still possible. Propane grills and stoves are still permitted to prepare your favorite camping dishes, these must have covers/lids and be within arm’s length while in use.

In addition, park patrons are reminded that possession of all fireworks is prohibited.
