Winter Activities

In the wintertime, hiking trails become a wonderland for tubing, sledding, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. This natural treasure provides accessible, fun family adventure, most of which can be had free of charge!

Ice fishing is an extremely popular winter sport on all of the reservoirs in Curt Gowdy State Park. Granite and Crystal are often the first to ice up and have nice sized perch if the trout aren’t biting. Upper North Crow has rainbow and brown trout, splake and grayling.

An ice boat is designed to run over ice instead of through water. This wintertime activity is especially fun on the reservoirs of Curt Gowdy State Park. Call the Visitors Center to get the status of the ice and to make sure you have access on wintery days:  307-632-7946.
