Last year, this place was a mess compared to usual. They finally cleaned it up. We just went for our first trip this year. The reason I give it only 2 stars is we got a citation for $150 from park ranger K. Pauling for not having stickers on our boats or having boat inspection. We were unaware that we had to do these things for regular kayaks. We asked if it was to check the safety of the boats and her response was “oh no that’s on you guys.” So when asked why, we were told it was to prevent “aquatic invasive species” (AIS) such as zebra clams from clogging up the damn and it would cost millions to fix it. Digging a little deeper I found that some of these clams can actually benefit the water by increasing water clarity, allowing more sunlight to penetrate the water. This allows for the growth of aquatic plants which provide oxygen and food for the fish and wildlife. I believe having some of amount of these clams may actually benefit the water. Yes it will cost some money, but do these people care more about keeping the money for their own purposes than to help the people and the environment? I doubt the government is lacking on funds considering we seem to be paying a lot more for these trips now than from a couple years ago. And what are they doing with the extra money? Not cleaning this park as it was a mess last year. It seems to me they just want money for their tickets and don’t care about the safety of the people or these aquatic animals and plants. Not to mention, it is not lawful to charge people for something they were unaware of. She could have let us off with a warning. We even offered to have her follow us while we go get the stickers right away and she made up excuses as to why she couldn’t. Her response also was “you’re not changing my mind, I’m going to give you the citation.” These government people are abusing their power. And if AIS is such a problem, where are the educational programs for this? Why is this a topic that is not frequently discussed? Perhaps instead of charging people for money we should be working together to come up with better solutions, educate people more on it and be willing to spend the money to help the environment and the people, rather than keeping it for yourselves as you do nothing to help these parks or the people.

My husband and I are Wyoming residents and have been coming here for years. We went 3 times this last summer. This place is being treated terribly, not being cleaned and kept up, and the park is profiting off of out of towners who are coming in and taking over our land. The bathrooms in sandy beach are disgusting with the exception of one that appears to be cleaned daily. There were branches and debris everywhere and fire bans were in effect all summer long. Fire pits are there for a reason and have been forever, with our ancestors. The fire bans are completely unnecessary. The water level of the lake had shrunk significantly each time we came back which shows that it was not being refilled at all. And on top of all of this they were charging at least $5 more a night than the previous year. If you’re going to be taking our money and charging us more, then you need to take care of this land and stop allowing out of towners to come and take it over. This is our land and this is not going unnoticed by your residents.

We booked our site on reserveamerica.com. We stayed two nights during the week so were not that many RVs in the Two Moons Campground. Our site was TM-47 so on the "outside" of the campground so near the road but was quiet. Next time we will book the site across from us as within the trees. Could see the stars at night! The only minor issue with this campground is the map of the sites, does not show each numbered site. We saw other RVs driving back and forth to find their site. While here we visited the Oregon Trail Ruts State Historic Site, highly recommend!

We had been traveling all day in our RV and wanted a place to stay for the night, maybe longer if it was nice. Went to Glendo State Park in Wyoming. The woman in the booth said to pick any spot we fit. We had over an hour until nightfall so started looking for a site with electric. There was no map supplied so we didn't know where the different sections were. The "roads" were narrow and windy and the sections were spread out. We couldn't find any site with an electrical hookup. We went back to the booth and the woman told us that the sites with hookups were by reservation only and that she couldn't give us a refund. She gave us a form to apply for a refund. Received a letter from the WY State Parks office telling us "too bad," that this time of year you were required to reserve sites with hookups and that they wouldn't refund the fee we paid. NOWHERE on their website does it say if you want hookups you have to reserve them in advance. We won't be back.

I went there with my grandparents for the eclipse. We actually stayed in a field in Orin. The eclipse was amazing. The landscape of this area reminded me of Australia. Although, we got stuck in traffic when trying to get a boat on the lake. We were stuck in the same place for 4 hours until we decided to turn around. (I know the eclipse was in August 2017 but trip advisor won’t let me go past September 2017).

We were up at 2:00AM to get ready to go see the solar eclipse. We left our hotel in Ft. Collins, Fort Collins Marriott at 2:45AM. I was having a nosebleed and one of the ladies at the front desk gave me a box of kleenex. Thank you! It came in handy! We arrived at Glendo State Park at 4:45AM. It was pitch dark out. The staff directed with you with flashlights to tell you where to park. They directed us to park on the airfield, which is grass. This airfield is for small planes; ranchers keeping track of their cattle. No commercial jets allowed here. A few vehicles pulled up next to us. Since it was dark and so early, we took a nap for a while. Woke up a few hours later, vehicles all around. The park had really filled up. We met some nice people near us, a couple probably our age from Florida, & next to them a retired couple from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, near us in Irvine. The six of us all hung out together and talked. The eclipse started at 10:21AM, you could see a black dot at the 1:00 position and it kept moving. At 11:43AM, the total solar eclipse took place. The moon covered the sun and it went dark for 1.5 to 2 minutes. Then a burst of white, a diamond circle they call it appeared and it eventually came back to normal. Before it went dark, you could see dusk all around & 2 hot air balloons were in the sky. What a view they must have had! So beautiful, it is hard to put into words! We talked with our new friends. One told us the trains going by were carrying coal. Full going south & empty going north. They are a mile long. We saw a total of 6 trains, 4 going south full & 2 going north empty. That was very cool to see! Our friends left before we did at 2:30PM. We hung out on our chairs to avoid all the traffic. When we left they had us turn right out of Glendo. It took us 3 hours to go 14 miles to catch the I-25 freeway back to Fort Collins. It took us 10 hours to get back to our hotel in Fort Collins. We arrived at 1:00AM! I think the City of Glendo did the best they could. They had plenty of port-a-potties and kept them clean and well stocked with toilet paper. They also had vendor trucks out, selling food. I think they were overwhelmed by how many people actually came. Maybe, they thought they would go to Casper and Cheyenne. Despite everything, it was well worth it!

We were there for the eclipse with thousands of other people. The park remained beautiful and there was little trash. The staff seemed friendly and patient even though they were way overworked. The toilet paper remained stocked...Kudos to the preparedness. Remember that the pit toilets are a distance away and there is water only at some campgrounds - bring a large container.

We absolutely loved our time at Glendo State Park. They were incredibly well-organized for the eclipse and staff were all quite friendly. They were prepared for crowds and provided extra porta potties that were cleaned daily. We stayed at Mule Hill Campground and really enjoyed our three-night stay. The park is quiet (depending on your campsite) and I'd highly recommend driving through the park up to Sandy Beach for some fun in the sun. The beach was clean, has great sand, and wasn't terribly busy. We enjoyed a few afternoons of lazy floating in the shallow water surrounded by red cliffs and mountains.

This used to be the absolute best camping in the state. Easily accessible, and if you went to Broken Arrow campground it was quiet and not crowded, the restrooms are always clean (maybe not right at the end of a holiday weekend, but in general), there is a great swimming spot at Broken Arrow where the kids can walk out at least 50 feet and still touch bottom. Just a wonderful place, in general. But the last few years it has gotten worse and worse. We are camping here right now - and are surrounded by a minimum of 9 tents (all from out of state). Most have moved fire rings and put up camp in odd spots so they can be together. Most have four wheelers or those dune buggy type things and they aren't staying on the roads. There were two campfires last night in spite of a fire ban. There are dogs not on leashes. They park their boats in the swimming area so the kids can't swim. The noise is out of control. My children and I are currently sitting in our trailer because a man 4 spots away was talking about really inappropriate things in a very loud voice (I don't want to explain a blue breakfast food to my kids, thankyouverymuch!). Generators turned on at 5 am, or left running until midnight. The list goes on and on. I think this will be our last trip here unless I hear the park is actually going to enforce their own rules. We have been here 5 days and have yet to see a park ranger. The first three days were before the fire ban went into effect. We witnessed campers leave their fires burning while they left, and fires that were 3 or 4 feet high and having accelerant poured on them. Most of the fire pits have garbage in them. The camp rules state you can't move tables and fire rings, and one unit per site, maximum of ten people, etc. Every one of those rules is being broken, but either there are no park rangers, they don't patrol this campground, or they just don't care. It's just no fun here anymore. It's no longer the peaceful, safe, clean campground it used to be. Now it's a haven for people from out of state to come party and drive out the locals. Maybe if they raise the non-resident rates people would be more respectful of their environment??
