Welcome to Wyoming
Visit Keyhole State Park
Keyhole State Park is between Sundance and Moorcroft on the edge of the Black Hills. It is within sight of Devils Tower. The reservoir offers excellent fishing for walleye, catfish, small mouth bass and northern pike.
Keyhole State Park takes its name from Keyhole Reservoir near Moorcroft. The reservoir offers a variety of fishing and water sports opportunities in addition to camping, picnicking, hiking and bird-watching. Keyhole also offers some of the best snowmobiling in the state during the winter. The mountains that surround Keyhole form the western boundary of the famed Black Hills.
Antelope, whitetail deer and wild turkeys are often seen in the area. The lake is one of the better places in the state to go after the elusive walleye and northern pike. For easy access, a road leads to Keyhole State Park eight miles from Interstate 90 between Sundance and Moorcroft.
Visit Devils Tower National Monument
Anchoring the northeast corner of Wyoming is the country’s first national monument—Devils Tower. A laccolithic butte that is made up of igneous rocks, Devils Tower is a jaw-dropping geological feature that rises 867 feet above Wyoming’s rolling prairies.
While Devils Tower National Monument garnered significant attention as the backdrop in Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the tower is sacred to many Northern Plains Indian tribes, as well as the Kiowa Tribe, who made their homes in the Black Hills region. With oral storytelling and a history that dates back thousands of years, today American Indian tribes continue to hold sacred ceremonies at the tower, including sweat lodges and sun dances. With a rich history that combines the country’s First Nations with cowboys, rock climbers and incredible night skies, Devils Tower is a must-visit destination in Wyoming.
After exploring Devils Tower, drive 2.5 hours to Sheridan, WY.
