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

It's a really lovely park in the middle of the city. We picnicked there, and enjoyed the lake and scenery.

We've been going hiking here for the past couple years. There are a variety of trails to take but if you are not a mtn biker you might choose your trails carefully. Sometimes the bikers come upon you quickly on the trail but usually they are respectful that hikers have the right of way. The trail to Hidden Falls is... More

Nice new visitors center that depicts what the nature of the park is all about. A nice salute to CG and to all the outdoor sports he embraced.

I visited this park in June 2014 with my Class B RV. I was in Tumbleweeds loop and the sites are tiered so that everyone has a lake view. Each site has water and electric in this loop and trash bins were abundant. The view of the lake was so peaceful as it was early in the season and not... More

Admittedly, I arrived too late to enter the costly Visitor Center that serves no purpose. I approached the entrance fee tube and stuffed a $20 bill into an evelope to set-up a tent overnight. There was no map of the location of non-electric, un-reservable tent sites. Although the campground was nearly empty, I spent a half-hour driving around, searching for... More

This park is literally in the middle of no where which makes it even the more better, great hiking and moderate to extreme biking trails. Great incredible camping spots right on the 2 reservoirs. Beware though lots of 4 wheeling and people smoking.

Living in Cheyenne, Wyoming Curt Gowdy is a beautiful little state park. Curt Gowdy was a famous sportscaster for Major League Baseball and the NFL in the 60s and 70s. With the southern section of Wyoming being mostly flat, Curt Gowdy offers some amazing landscape views with lakes and nature. This state is open all year round. Sometimes during harsh... More
