Keyhole State Park is between Sundance and Moorcroft on the edge of the Black Hills. It is within sight of Devils Tower. The reservoir offers excellent fishing for walleye, catfish, small mouth bass and northern pike.

Keyhole State Park takes its name from Keyhole Reservoir near Moorcroft. The reservoir offers a variety of fishing and water sports opportunities in addition to camping, picnicking, hiking and bird-watching. Keyhole also offers some of the best snowmobiling in the state during the winter. The mountains that surround Keyhole form the western boundary of the famed Black Hills.

Antelope, whitetail deer and wild turkeys are often seen in the area. The lake is one of the better places in the state to go after the elusive walleye and northern pike. For easy access, a road leads to Keyhole State Park eight miles from Interstate 90 between Sundance and Moorcroft.
