A recreational paradise where boaters, fishermen and water sport enthusiasts can all enjoy its sandy beaches and clear waters.
Glendo State Park is one of southern Wyoming’s most popular boating parks. It offers visitors water-skiing, fishing and other water-based activities. Day-use and overnight facilities feature improved campsites, sanitary facilities, tables and grills. A commercial concession at the reservoir provides visitors with complete marina services, motel units and fishing equipment.
Glendo State Park is located in one of the state’s most historic areas. Spanish Diggings, which suggest a large area of aboriginal activity, lie just a few miles east of the reservoir. Sand dunes that stretch from the Great Divide Basin and the Green River to the sand hills of Nebraska rise from the reservoir’s east side. Native American artifacts can still be found at the park and the surrounding area.
