I seldom stay in campgrounds, but stayed in the campground this time to visit friends and enjoy talking about old times around a campfire. We also were there for the convenience of being able to camp right next to the reservoir, which allowed us to park the boat at our campsite. We enjoyed tubing and water skiing. There are also...

What an amazing park. We stopped and went for a 6 mile hike. We thought we would take a look at the waterfall located at the end of the trail. The falls we're not worth the long hike like other night say. We were not impressed, but the beautiful views were amazing and priceless. It was amazing and great to... More

We visited the state park and hiked to the hidden waterfall and along the lakeside. Beautiful area with camping and biking trails as well. There was a $6 entry fee into the park that we payed at the visitors center which I recommend stopping at before you enjoy the park.

This park has two lakes and lots of opportunity for hiking, fishing, and camping, with campsites right next to the lakes. It's a beautiful area. I recommend a stop at the visitor center, where they will give you a map, recommend hiking trails, and answer any questions you might have about activities in the park. Even if you are just... More

We stopped at this state park to take a hike while we were driving through the area. We paid the $6 out of state entry fee and went to the visitors center. The lady on duty asked what we liked to do and recommended the hike to the hidden waterfall, which she said was the highlight of the park. The... More

It's always been a great place to fish and camping but the addition of the Visitors Center with coin operated showers make it perfect for roughing without actually roughing it. Close to Cheyenne and Laramie but far enough away. They have a mobile canteen that comes in for part of the day in the summer but don't depend on it.... More

Great hiking and scenery. Trails can be tough in places if you have any physical challenges. There's a small "hidden" waterfall you can visit with a 2 mile hike each way.

We went for an afternoon picnic and fishing with my wife, our daughter and son in law. Found a spot for the afternoon and caught a nice Rainbow Trout on my first cast. Thanks to the Loon who came by...nothing after that. Great spot for campers.

We visited this park for the day to hike some of the trails. The scenery here is absolutely beautiful. We walked the trail that took us back to the waterfall, so I think a total of 3.5 miles. It was a great afternoon walk/hike (needed to do a little bit of climbing of rocks), and it was only $6 per... More

We almost didn't visit . . . the information online makes the park appear . . . uninteresting. We stopped at the information center at the entrance to the park. The nice woman at the counter gave us a map and suggested a couple of hiking trails (different routes with the same destination - a waterfall). We were pleasantly surprised.... More
