About Our Site - Glendo State Park


Glendo State Park is a 22,000 acre park in Platte County Wyoming, and exists on and around Glendo Reservoir. The park is administered by the State Parks, Historic Sites and Trails division of Wyoming State Parks and Cultural Resources. With 10,000 acres of land and 12,000 acres of water, our park has a wide variety of recreation options, which are open and accessible year-round! We have 45 miles of multi-use, non-motorized trails, which make for excellent hiking and biking for expert and novice trail users alike. Six boat ramps provide seasonal water access for all manner of boaters. If you're looking to fish, Glendo Reservoir is home to one of the best walleye fisheries in the state, along with healthy populations of a variety of other fish, both out on the reservoir and in the tailwaters below the dam.

OUR WATER LEVELS VARY SIGNIFICANTLY THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. Before planning your trip, make sure to check our reservoir capacity and elevation here, and then take a look at our pages about boating for information on which ramps are accessible! If you're consideringing an overnight stay, we have over 500 campsites spread across 19 campgrounds to accommodate your needs. Please explore our website for information about campgrounds and amenities, to make sure that you know how and where to find the facilities you are looking for.

Press Releases - Glendo State Park

Glendo State Park hosts "Two Boos at Two Moon" evemt, Oct. 28



Glendo State Park is hosting the fourth-annual "Two Boos at Two Moon" Trick-or-Treat Event on Saturday, October 28, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. There is no cost to attend as all fees are waived for this event. 

Scheduled yearly on the last Saturday in October, the event offers families a fun, safe, and unique way to trick-or-treat. Trick-or-treaters follow a paved path through the west loop of the Two Moon Campground to pick up candy at several stations and admire the spooky scenes and decorations along the way. Decorations are considered more "spooky" than "scary", so trick-or-treaters of all ages are welcome. 

The event is a fantastic way to bring together the local communities of Glendo, Wheatland, Douglas, Glenrock, and even Casper and Cheyenne. About 300 visitors attended the event last year -- which is more than the Town of Glendo itself! All of the candy that is given out is donated by local businesses who become event sponsors in return for advertising throughout the event. 

"We have a great time hosting this event each year because it is a unique opportunity for folks to come enjoy the park in a different way while safely celebrating Halloween," says Glendo State Park Superintendent Brian Johnson. "We are fortunate to have a community that really supports the event in every aspect and is excited to come back year after year."

Park Staff strives to improve the event each year, and this year is no different. There will be new decorations, more candy, and maybe even activities to enjoy. Although the event runs from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., it is recommended that trick-or-treaters arrive by 7:15 p.m. to allow for plenty of time to explore all of the spooky attractions. Candy and other goodies are while supplies last. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Trails - Glendo State Park

A new non-motorized single track trail system was created at Glendo in the past few years. Trail construction began in 2010 and has continued until 2015. There are now over 45 miles of trails that are used for mountain biking and hiking. The trails offer an adventure for every person, it doesn’t matter what your skill level is we have something for you. There are three main trailheads and each one offers a different adventure. You could ride along the Glendo Wetlands area and possibly see some turtles or even a muskrat. The eastern and northern part of the trail system will give you the feel of the mountains as you ride through pine and cedar trees. Be on the lookout for Mule Deer and Turkeys as you travel the mountainous trails. The trails offer a view of the park that few people ever see.
