Snowy Range Area

When Yellowstone was set aside in 1872 as the world's first national park, it marked the start of a new attitude toward the American outdoors. States had begun to set aside land and develop public parks of their own. In Wyoming, the state park system also incorporates historic sites and trails, preserving our culture resources.  

Visitors can relive the days of pioneers on the Oregon Trail or buy goods like early trappers at the Fort Bridger Rendezvous; or simply take advantage of the recreation that comes from the state’s large lakes and reservoirs. An intricate system of snowmobiling, horseback, ATV, biking and hiking trails is also provided as a means to explore Wyoming’s wide-open country.
