Buford Canyon

3 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents40 acres · Buford, WY
We purchased 40 acres several years ago and built our home on the west side. We wished we could better access and appreciate the amazing views on the east side so we built two off grid cabins and a campsite. We have been encouraged to share this very special location with others.

The best camping near Curt Gowdy State Park guide

Overview

About

Wyoming's Highway 210 is locally known as Happy Jack Road—with a natural playground like Curt Gowdy State Park along the way, we have a hunch why this Jack character was so darn giddy. This is one of the state's most versatile parks, with fantastic opportunities for both land and water-centric recreation. Lace up those hiking boots or buckle your bike helmet and spend some time in the foothills of the Laramie Mountains, named an “epic trail system” by the International Mountain Bicycling Association. Afterward, take a boat out for a spin on one of the park's reservoirs: Granite is ideal for water sports, while Crystal is a utopia for fishermen in search of seclusion (and a wealth of kokanee salmon and rainbow trout). The water is sourced by the nearby towns of Laramie and Cheyenne, so no swimming is allowed—but the close proximity to city limits means that Curt Gowdy State Park is super convenient from any direction.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Curt Gowdy State Park is from late spring to early fall, when the weather is warm and the park's full splendor is on display. Winter months can be harsh, with snow and cold temperatures limiting access to certain areas and activities.

Know before you go

  • Check the park's official website for updates on trail conditions and closures before your visit.
  • Always pack sufficient water and sun protection, as the park's elevation can lead to rapid weather changes.
  • Be mindful of wildlife; store food securely and maintain a safe distance from animals.
  • Accessibility varies across the park; some areas may not be suitable for visitors with mobility challenges.
  • Facilities such as restrooms and picnic areas are available, but it's wise to bring essential supplies in case they are busy.
