Laramie -

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is closing overnight camping immediately until further notice at the Grayrocks Reservoir and Wheatland No. 1 Public Access Areas, and at Cottonwood Draw Wildlife Habitat Management Area located in Platte County. Day use will still be permitted.
Game and Fish deemed this closure necessary to be consistent with State of Wyoming health orders, Platte County closures as well as requests from the Platte County Health Officer and the Platte County Sheriff due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Any situation where there is likely to be increased crowding runs counter to directives from state and local orders,” said Matt Withroder, Laramie regional supervisor. “With other camping in the area closed, this closure is consistent with others in the area to prevent groups of people from congregating in face of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
All other rules and regulations remain in place on these properties. For all Game and Fish closures, changes, and cancellations visit the Game and Fish COVID-19 webpage.
