Curt Gowdy's signature was on my first ever professional paycheck, so I popped by here on a day trip to Cheyenne. I didn't know what to expect, but the ride is desolate and so beautiful. The park is gorgeous. The relatively new visitors' center has great hands-on exhibits explaining the legacy of Curt Gowdy and explaining the features of the... More

We wanted to spend the night in WY and found the camp site in this state park driving out of Larami. We had no idea what to expect, there is quite a long road leading up into the park and up to the camp site and we missed the park's main office. The reservoir was completely unexpected. It was the...

An awesome place for a day trip or a camping outing. Beautiful scenery, lovely little places to stop with picnic tables and bathrooms in close proximity. There is a small fee, but worth every penny. The staff at the lodge were very helpful.

My wife and I were driving the Happy Jack and we ran into the Curt Gowdy State Park so we decided to make a stop. $6.00 per car to get in and it was worth the fee. We drive from one end of the park and the views were great. Being from the east coast we don't have parks this... More

This is not a horse friendly facility! They cannot not even provide water at the corrals for the horses. We were told it had not been operational for 2 years!! But, they provide air pumps for bikes and tools. If they advertise this as a horse friendly park they need to provide adequate water sources for the horse lover!!

Curt Gowdy State Park is one of Wyoming's premiere state parks featuring miles and miles of biking and hiking trails. It was named as an "Epic" park by the International Mountain Bicycling Association. As well, there is plenty of camping space, access to Vedauwoo and the possibility of renting the Hynds Lodge by calling Wyoming State Parks in early October.... More

Had a great time here, hiked the hidden water falls w all ages 2yr to 50s. Camp sites where spaced out which was awsome so neighbors weren't close. Wish when checked in they would have told us where the showers where... we got stinky but over all great trip

We stopped here as we needed a place to camp for the night. The camping is spread out over a huge area surrounding two reservoirs. Many of the campsites are pull-throughs along the main gravel road, creating a lot of dust right in the campsite. There are nice sites on "fingers" going down to the lakes, but in many cases,...

Great fun for all ages. We took the kids on a hike to Hidden Falls and even our little 4-year old made it the whole way. It's about 1.75 miles each way if you start from the equestrian area trail head. The falls are beautiful and the walk there and back is scenic. Take a towel because once you get... More

Loved Curt Gowdy. The hiking trails are outstanding. If you get a chance, take the crow creek trail back to the waterfall. It was well worth the trip. We did a three hour hike through well marked trails with our teenage daughter and her friend. They loved every minute of the hike also. Curt Gowdy is a nice place to... More
