State Parks & Historic Sites

Breathtaking scenery, wildlife and recreational opportunities abound within the thousands of sprawling acres that make up Wyoming’s state parks and historic sites. From Cheyenne to Sheridan and all the towns in between, you’ll never be far from a picturesque state-park escape. Most have reservoirs where you can swim, boat, wind surf, water ski and fish — for walleye, trout and several other species of fish. Other amenities such as camping, picnicking and biking and nature trails that lead to overlooks and scenic mountain vistas are widely available. While our historical sites give a glimpse into Wyoming's past.
