I went on an exceptionally warm and sunny day for February and so there were a lot of people out but there are so many trails and different places to hang out that I only passed one person on a trail the entire time I was in the park (3 hours). There is mountain biking, hiking, camping, fishing, horseback riding,... More

I have been going here since I was a little boy. Its just minutes away from town. There is fishing, archery, hiking, biking, camping and picnicking all in one area. Great way to spend some time out side.

Curt Gowdy has a lot of trails for hiking and Mountain biking. Great Camp sites. Good fishing in the reservoirs. The hike to the hidden falls is a moderate hike and the falls are great.

We decided to camp here well we attended the Cheyenne Frontier Days and though it was a ways from Cheyenne it was so worth the drive each day. Loved all the deer and antelope we seen each day. The park itself was beautiful with so many trails to take. We choose to take the trail to the water fall and... More

Curt Gowdy has been the best part of my commute to UW from Cheyenne. It is always beautiful, especially when the road is not. On my last trip, I even spotted three moose! The best days are those that I have time to stop at the park and hike.

Went on a 5+ mile hike on a bright winter day. The place is beautiful and very few people will be met on the trails. The Hidden Falls were totally frozen which was very nice to see.

About 25 miles outside of town on Happy Jack Road this State Park is gem on the Front Slope of the Rockies. Sadly it’s been discovered and most weekends there are more folks from Colorado... More

Great place to camp, fish, mountain bike and hike. We have ridden all over the country and the mountain bike trails here are some of the best (if not the best) we have been on. Plenty of options for riding, hiking and fishing right from your campsite with various distances on the trails. The camping is affordable and there are... More

We stopped at the visitor center, just a note it doesn't open until nine. We're told about the Hidden Falls Trail which is the one we read about. We hiked up there no problem but really got turned around in by the falls. Took another path out and luckily ran into a park attendant. We managed to hike 4 miles... More
