Bighorn National Forest
All wilderness users should be careful not to cause resource damage in fragile high alpine meadows. Rather than camp in these areas, it is better to camp at lower elevations and take day rides to visit these locations. Sorry, horses are not allowed in developed campgrounds. Tether horses where they will not damage young trees or fragile plant life. Use picket lines instead of tying stock to trees and move picket lines every day to prevent overgrazing. Camp at least 100 feet away from live water.


Curt Gowdy State Park – Cheyenne, Wyoming

Curt Gowdy is located just 24 miles west of Cheyenne, Wyoming and 24 miles east of Laramie, Wyoming. Take State Route 210 (Happy Jack Road) to County Road 106.

Curt Gowdy State Park has seven sections of richly varied landscape, flora and fauna decorate the foothills of the Laramie Mountains. The beautiful attractions within Curt Gowdy State Park are near the crossroads of two major interstates, I-80 and I-25. There are three reservoirs, Granite, Crystal and North Crow. Granite offers excellent rainbow trout and kokanee salmon fishing as well as space for water sports. Crystal, the smallest of the reservoirs, has shoreline fishing for brown trout, rainbow trout and kokanee salmon. Also, enjoy boating while at Crystal (15 horsepower limit). North Crow Reservoir is located 5 miles west of the Headquarter’s Building. This is an unimproved fishing area. There are no picnic tables, water supply, comfort stations, and is day- use only—very natural. There are a limited number of reservable campsites at the Tumbleweed and Camp Russell campgrounds. Aspen Grove campground is next to a free public horse corral for those visitors who would like to camp with horse!
