Natrona County Parks, Recreation and Leisure Services Closes Campground Areas

Posted on April 1, 2020 at 8:52 AM by Parks Department

In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, all Natrona County campground areas, group sites/shelters, shower houses, some non-essential restrooms and playgrounds are closed until further notice.

The immediately affected campgrounds are as follows:

Lake Campgrounds at Alcova, Pathfinder and Gray Reef Reservoirs

  • Black Beach Campground
  • Cottonwood Campground
  • Fremont Canyon Campground
  • Okie Beach Campground
  • Westside Campground
  • Bishops Point Campground
  • Diabase Campground
  • Sage Campground
  • Weiss Campground
  • Wolf Point Campground
  • Gray Reef Camping

The Casper Mountain camping areas are currently not accessible, so only the Campgrounds above are immediately affected.

All parks currently remain open for day-use outdoor recreation activities including trailheads, hiking/biking trails, boat ramps fishing access, essential restrooms, and individual picnic areas/tables.

There have been increased concerns regarding our ability to maintain a healthy environment for our consumers and staff.  It is hoped by keeping our park areas open for day-use activities we are able to balance the public’s desire for outdoor recreation with the health and safety needs of our constituents and staff.

Visitors can still enjoy Natrona County’s parks while recreating alone or with family and we ask that you consider strongly the following suggestions.

  • Refrain from using parks or trails if they are exhibiting symptoms.
  • Follow the CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to and during use of parks or trails.
  • Prepare for limited access to public restrooms or water fountains.
  • While on trails, warn other users of their presence as they pass and step aside to let others pass.
  • Follow CDC guidance on the recommended size of social gatherings including outdoor picnicking, pick-up sports and other group hangouts, and maintain proper physical distance at all times.
  • Observe CDC’s minimum recommended physical distancing of 6 feet from other individuals at all times.  If this is not possible, users should find an alternate location or depart that space.
