Over the past two years, the state of Wyoming has had above average snow fall. The runoff has created an overflow at Pathfinder Dam. Here are some pictures from the overflow.
The Pathfinder Dam and Reservoir was a major feat of engineering when it was built in the first decade of the 1900’s. It is now part of the National Register of Historic Places. In modern times, it hosts a wide variety of fish species for the sportsman: brown trout, cutthroat trout, rainbow trout, ohrid trout, and walleye. Rainbow and cutthroat trout are stocked annually in the reservoir.
The Pathfinder Interpretive Center and 1.7-mile interpretive trail are located near the dam. The interpretive trail may be accessed across the historic suspension bridge or from the dam.
Approximately 50 camping sites are operated by Natrona County Parks. Marina operated by concessionaire, museum, boating, hiking, fishing and camping.
