From our location in the middle of Wyoming, it's likely no surprise that the outdoors are a large part of where we work, play and live. And with adventure in every direction, it's easy to get outside and soak up Wyoming's open spaces. When it comes to meetings and conventions, our outdoor recreation offerings are a natural part of planning and hosting an event in Casper. From taking in the sunset along the North Platte River to seeing the rushing waters of Garden Creek Falls on Casper Mountain, it's easy to incorporate the outdoors into your meeting.
THREE CROWNS GOLF CLUB
With a gorgeous setting in the Platte River Commons, Three Crowns Golf Club is a one-of-a-kind course. And while you can golf here, Three Crowns is also an ideal location for small group events, corporate outings and receptions. Their staff provides customized services for groups of all sizes, while their clubhouse is tastefully designed with floor-to-ceiling windows that provide expansive views of the course and nearby Casper Mountain.
At an elevation of over 8,000 feet and with 50 miles of trails, Casper Mountain in an iconic landmark among Wyoming's landscapes. A short 15-minute drive from downtown will take you to Casper Mountain, where you can take the easy walk to Garden Creek Falls or continue up the mountain for sweeping views of Casper, the Big Horn Mountains and Wyoming's rolling prairies. The mountain's trails are a great place to get your body moving before heading into all-day meetings, while Hogadon Basin Ski Area is the perfect location for an off-site meeting or cocktail hour. Meanwhile, the Casper Mountain Biathlon Club — which sits farther up the mountain — is a world-class biathlon and multi-sport venue that offers team-building activities for meeting attendees.
DAVID STREET STATION
One of the anchors of Casper, David Street Station, makes it easy to take your meeting outside. This outdoor venue, located in the heart of downtown, is available year-round and has a built-in stage, ice rink and overlook deck.
RIDE THE OREGON TRAIL
For years, hundreds of thousands of pioneers passed through modern-day Casper on their way to the West on the Oregon, California, Mormon and Pony Express trails. And while travelers no longer have to make their way by foot, handcart or wagon, today your group can still experience the Oregon Trail on a wagon ride with Historic Trails West. The wagons can accommodate up to 60 people, which makes them ideal for an authentic outdoor experience.
NORTH PLATTE RIVER + ALCOVA RESERVOIR
A premier blue-ribbon fishing destination, the North Platte River meanders in and around Casper, with many people coming to fish and float its waters. Experienced guides and outfitters take clients out on the river for a day of fly-fishing, while Alcova Resort offers sunset cruises on Alcova Reservoir for small groups, with jaw-dropping views of Fremont Canyon.
