Overview

Glendo State Park is one of southern Wyoming's most popular boating parks. It offers visitors water-skiing, fishing and other water- based activities. Fishing is so good that Glendo has several fish records. Day-use and overnight facilities feature improved campsites, comfort stations, tables and grills. A commercial concession at the reservoir provides visitors with complete marina services, motel units and fishing equipment. Glendo State Park is an historical area, as Tipi rings and other cultural artifacts from the Arapaho, Cheyenne, Oglala and Brule Sioux tribes can still be found here. Glendo State Park also houses the Glendo Dam, which was built in 1958.
