Play on Alcova Reservoir

Alcova Reservoir

A scenic 30-minute drive from Casper will take you to Alcova Reservoir and its 2,470 acres. Known for beautiful sunrises, abundant water recreation and fishing, Alcova Reservoir is one of the best places for summer travel. The reservoir’s offerings include six campgrounds, eight boat ramps, an interpretive walking/hiking trail, fishing pier and more, with an onsite marina that offers rentals for boating, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding and bikes. Plus, boaters, kayakers and canoers can access Fremont Canyon from the southwest end of Alcova Reservoir. 

Alcova Reservoir is also home to the Cottonwood Creek Dinosaur Trail, an interpretive route that takes visitors through geological eras right here in the heart of Wyoming. When it comes to fishing, you can expect to hook trout, kokanee salmon and walleye.
