Wandering WY: Hawk Springs State Recreation Area

In the southeast corner of Wyoming, you can find unique rock formations including the Chugwater formation where many fossils have been discovered, fields of sunflowers, and a little out of the way State Recreation Area known as Hawk Springs.


This is by far the smallest State Park I've visited this year. If you don't have a boat or plans to camp overnight before heading to your next destination, this probably is one you can miss.

It is rumored to have good fishing, so I may visit it again with The Fish Whisperer to see what his opinion of this area is.



At the end of September, there were very few people camping here, but the sites seemed nice and there was a park for the kids to play on. For a quiet weekend getaway, this spot could be right up your alley.
