Great place to be for a nice weekend. There were a lot of activities here, ranging from hiking to camping, with adequate facilities. Also suitable for family camping.

Curt Gowdy primarilly offers hiking, activity on the lake, and vegging out while camping. The facilities are pretty basic: fire pits, outhouses and the like. Still, if you want to do any of the above on a holiday weekend, you'd better go early since the locals from Cheyenne and Laramie will definitely be there the next morning.,

I wanted to stop here before the snow flew. There is a new, excellent visitor's center staffed with people who are very helpful. Lots of camping spots for the summer and hiking and biking trails for any time of the year. It's a gorgeous area and easy to find. Just take the Happy Jack exit in Cheyenne and head west.

This is the solution to all of those rocks and hillsides along Happy Jack Road you want to hike up to but they are on private property. This park has great vistas, lakes, and plenty of big rocks on each side of the road.

The State park is a great local spot for hiking and camping. The hiking trails are nicely maintained and the park staff are always very friendly. Great spot for fishing, horseback riding and camping. Worth a trip in any season, it's always very pretty.

We took a hike down the Canyon Creek trail to the hidden waterfall. Beautiful fall scenery and a moderate walk. The waterfall is a peaceful little area. I'm sure we'll be back when we drive through Laramie again.

If you want some great scenic views then this is the place to go. It is just a nice green area, peaceful and nice lakes and great walks. Had a great time. I would definitely go back. Husband went water skiing and he loved it.
