Boysen State Park
Boysen State Park is located just outside of Shoshoni, Wyoming, and surrounds the Boysen Reservoir. The state park is named for Asmus Boysen, who built a dam here in 1908. At more than 35,000 acres, the extensive park stretches south from the Owl Creek Mountains and the mouth of the Wind River Canyon. Boysen State Park is open 24/7 and also offers many campgrounds and cabins. The north and west areas of the park, away from Shoshoni, are the darkest regions. Wyoming is known for its clear skies and sunny days, which lead to great stargazing nights.
