(Riverton, Wyo.) - Wyoming State Parks is hosting a public meeting for the Boysen State Park Master Plan on December 17, from 6:30 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the Central Wyoming College Little Theater in the Lowell Morfeld Student Center Building, 2660 Peck Avenue in Riverton.

Previous public input meetings were held in Thermopolis, Riverton and Casper, respectively, on August 5-7.

At the Riverton meeting attendees said they liked primitive camping around the reservoir, dispersed camping in the winter, good group parking and the variety of recreation opportunities available at the park. Most complaints centered around the park’s road system and signage, trash at public spaces, and the “improved” RV and camping sites at the Tough Creek Campground on the reservoirs eastern shore, among other items.

The 20-year Master Plan is a year-long project which was initiated in the spring of 2013. This is the second in a series of public meetings on the plan.

The public is invited to share thoughts on draft alternatives which outline future management and development at Boysen State Park. The meeting will be followed by a 30-day comment period.

Areas of the park with draft alternatives are boxed in red on the map below.
