A friend of mine heard the water levels were really high, but I heard from Wyoming Parks and thought this is a good time to set things straight with a portion of their Thursday, May 26 release from the Public Information Officer:

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WY State Parks officials are encouraging visitors to enjoy Glendo State Park over the Memorial Day weekend.

Water levels at Glendo State Park have not risen significantly in recent weeks, and with a favorable weather forecast, water recreation and camping opportunities should be close to normal over the Memorial Day weekend.

With the addition of 70 temporary campsites at the park, more than 480 campsites are available at the park, including 32 at Hall’s Marina. Additionally, camping areas are also available in and around the Town of Glendo.

Indian Point, Broken Arrow, Burnt Wagon and Muddy Bay campgrounds have been closed, as well as several other lower level camp sites scattered throughout the park. The Indian Point boat ramp is also closed.

Also, until further notice, reservations have been suspended at Willow Campground and a portion of the Dune campground.

All other Wyoming State Parks and Historic Sites are only reporting a handful of campsite closures throughout the state with many reporting no closures.

For daily updates to closures and water conditions at Glendo, and all other Wyoming State Parks and Historic Sites, please visit wyoparks.org.

 

Have a safe and fun Memorial Day Weekend wherever you go. Take a moment to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice so you and I can live free.
