About Our Site - Glendo State Park

General

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.

Fire Restrictions to Begin at Glendo, Guernsey, June 16

unnamed

June 15, 2020

To help protect the natural resources in the parks, open fires are restricted at Glendo and Guernsey state parks beginning June 16.

Despite recent fire restrictions instituted by the Platte County Commission, an enjoyable camping experience is still possible at Glendo and Guernsey state parks.

Propane grills and stoves and charcoal grills can still be used to prepare popular camping dishes and provide adequate warmth. These grills must have covers/lids and be within an arm’s length when lit. A variety of other imaginative ideas can help preserve the camping experience such as solar lights in the firepit.

However, as always park patrons are reminded that possession of all fireworks is prohibited in all Wyoming State Parks.

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.
