Natrona County Parks Department
Natrona County Parks’ 10,768-acre system of urban and mountain parks, trails, lakes, streams, and open space is one of the most diverse recreational areas in all of Wyoming. Our natural environments range from sand dunes and rock cliffs to mountain forests and cool lakes.
Natrona County Parks offers many recreational opportunities year-round. Here are a few of our most popular options.
City of Casper, City of Mills, Town of Bar Nunn, Town of Evansville, Visit Casper, Natrona County and Natrona County School District have joined forces in a collaborative effort to complete a Casper Area Parks and Recreation Master Plan. Read on...

- Reservation only campgrounds - Generally only one camping unit per site is allowed. You may have one tent in addition to your main camping unit when space allows as long as everything fits within the site.
Natrona County campgrounds and shelters are primitive camping with the exception of the Full Hook-Up campground at Alcova Reservoir which has electricity and water. Vault toilets and garbage containers are at all of the campgrounds.
- Can I use dump station by the Full Hook-Up campground if I am not camping there? How much does it cost?
Yes, the dump station is open to the general public at no cost.
Please watch the news articles on the official Natrona County Website and announcements on the Reservation System.
Currently there are no shelters on the mountain. Future plans are underway to construct an East Shelter.
For each camping site, one camping unit is allowed. Please limit passenger vehicles that are not used to sleep in to two. Please remember that everything must fit within your site.
Online camping reservations are a new norm nowadays and majority of National, State, County and even private parks and campgrounds either require or at least offer reservations. One of the most frequent complaints about reservations we hear from our citizens is “reserved” spaces that stay empty for days because people did not show up and did not care to cancel, therefore taking away an opportunity from another camper to use the site. It’s understandable that people may not care to cancel if it’s difficult, requires calling during office hours, comes with fees and has to be done in advance, so we are going to make it easy!
Natrona County Parks will no longer require seven (7) days advance cancellation in order to receive user credit on our reservation system.* You will now be able to cancel all the way up to one (1) day before your stay. Online. No questions asked. No fees. And your user credit never expires.
Please also consider, in case of a confirmed “No-show” – a camper that did not arrive to their reserved site by 11 am the next day – the entire reservation may be canceled at our discretion and no user credit will be given.
We all understand life happens and plans change. But when they do, please cancel or reschedule your reservation! You will get an opportunity to camp at a different time using your credit and not having to pay again and your thoughtfulness will allow another family to enjoy a site, which would otherwise sit empty!
*Shelter reservations will still have to be canceled seven (7) days in advance in order to receive a credit.
