We were there for the Xterra Triathlon last weekend. What a beautiful place! The terrain was brutal but the event was well managed. Family friendly and extremely clean, next year we'll try to secure a camping spot to avoid the drive.

The state park has campsites around two different reservoirs. There are areas specifically for RVs and others for tents. Some allow you a view of the water and others do not, but no matter which site you choose you have a view of mountains and the big sky found in Wyoming. Since it's pretty windy in Wyoming and we were... More

The trails are great. The locals and park are to be commended. Good camping. Beautiful scenery. But they almost hide the fact that DOGS MUST BE LEASHED ON ALL TRAILS AT ALL TIMES. And it is enforced. You can’t ride these trails with a dog tied to a leash. You will injure yourself, the dog, or both. And it isn’t... More

This state park, so close to Cheyenne, is great. We hike year-round on the trails. There are beautiful vistas galore. Don't miss Hidden Falls; even in the winter, it's really pretty!

Locals recommended we visit "Crystal Granite" lake. This State Park has rolling hills & meadows as well as steep granite formations. Very picturesque! It also houses 3 reservoirs: Crystal, Granite & North Crow. Apparently you can fish for rainbow or brown trout & Kokanee salmon. There are picnic tables scattered around various camping areas with ready water supplies. There's also... More

We stayed @FE Warren AFB for 2 days and looking for some place to go. This state park has great reviews and only 23 miles away. On the way to this park, the view already remind of me of old western tv show. I could almost see a cowboy on the top of the hill and when we got there....... More

I was visiting Cheyenne, WY on business recently and I'm quite a nature lover and big fan of State and National Parks, so I really wanted to visit Curt Gowdy SP. It was well worth the trip! Amazing drive out Happy Jack Road and the park was just beautiful all white with snow! A really pretty place! And a very... More

Any time of year, take a drive and see wildlife. Venture off one of the dirt roads and have a picnic or take a walk with the family. Good fishing too. I'm smiling every time I go there.
