The scenery is breathtaking. Weather was perfect in early September which is after the busy season. The park was beautiful, clean, well designed and maintained. Highly recommend this if you are in the area.

I hiked the Hidden Falls trail and loved the rock formations along the way. The trail follows the creek and ends in a short walk through the water to see the falls. It was beautiful and an easy hike.

This is favorite for the locals. There is camping, both tent and RV sites available, many trails you can hike on and fishing at one of the two lakes. The hike to hidden falls worth the hike.

Plenty to do there, affordable, easy to get to. If you're in or near Cheyenne it's an easy drive for a day away or if you want to camp, reasonable number of sites.
