“A wonderful, large state park”

Overall Rating

Getting to the park is easy. After exiting I25, directions to the park are well marked. Once in the park there is very good signage pointing to the campgrounds, day use areas, boat ramps, and trails.
Glendo State Park actually has 6 different campgrounds.
We stayed at Two Moon Campground on a Sunday and Monday night in June. We did not have a reservation, but one was not necessary when we arrived on a Sunday evening. This may be different on the weekend, but we found the park to be empty and quiet on the weekdays we were there.
Our selection of campground was based on access to the mountain bike trails. Our site had a beautiful view of the lake, and trail access right from the site, so it was perfect for us, and it is up high on a bluff with a great view of the lake. If your intent is to have direct access to the lake from your campsite, you’ll want to look into the other campgrounds at the park like the Sandy Beach Campground.
The park's main focus is the Reservoir which allows power boating, but we were there to mountain bike on the extensive trail system. We mountain biked on the trails and found a great mix of easy and intermediate trails. All trail intersections were well marked.

Our campsite was clean, quiet and private. The bathrooms are pit toilets which were clean and did not have a bad smell. There was a water spigot at the bathroom so you could take water to your campsite.
We had mule deer wander through our campsite several times. While biking we saw huge turtles in the North Platt river, a garter snake, more mule deer, and quite a few raptors that we were not skilled enough to identify.
