About Our Site - Hawk Springs State Recreation Area


Hawk Springs State Recreation Area  is a small recreation site administered by the Wyoming State Parks, Historic Sites & Trails Division. The site consists of 24 primitive campsites, which are walk-up only, picnic tables and fire rings, boat launching ramp, boat dock, restrooms and playground. There are seasonally operated potable water hydrants. Water based (boating, fishing, swimming) recreation opportunities are the primary activities that bring users to the site. It is a very popular camping destination and has been long been known as place to go fishing along the southeastern border of Wyoming. State Parks, Historic Sites & Trails regulates and manages the land based recreation opportunities at the site while the Wyoming Game and Fish regulates the recreational activities on the water.
