About Casper

Casper is home to unmatched opportunities to get outside and enjoy the best of Wyoming’s wide-open spaces. Found in the heart of Wyoming, nestled into the North Platte River Valley, Casper is within 20 minutes of some of the region’s best sightseeing, blue-ribbon fishing, trails for hiking, biking, skiing, snowshoeing, and more. Nearly 100 miles of multi-use trails crisscross through downtown Casper, up to the top of Casper Mountain, west to Alcova Lake and Fremont Canyon, and right up to the North Platte River banks. In any area around Casper there is a good chance of crossing paths with wildlife. Edness K. Wilkins State Park is home to many rare bird species, Casper Mountain and Muddy Mountain claim to be home to mountain lions, and all over Casper hill sides are antelope, deer, and migratory birds, and the North Platte River is teeming with trout species worth your time and effort. No matter what you do outside in Casper, you’ll be immersed in Wyoming’s fresh air and stunning landscapes, guaranteeing an unforgettable experience.
