Keyhole State Park
It may not have the backdrop of the jagged peaks of the spectacular Tetons in the northwestern corner of Wyoming. But this Wonder does have the beautiful setting of the Black Hills, and of course, another Wonder of Wyoming, Devil’s Tower, in clear view. It’s a Crook County spot of heaven, in the northeastern portion of the state. Keyhole State Park, 12 miles east of Moorcroft, Wyoming, has its own dam and reservoir, and all of the other amenties, and is a pleasure spot for people and wildlife alike.
Keyhole State Park took its name from the brand used by the nearby Mc Kean Ranch, and covers almost 15,000 water-acres of recreation area. This spot has become reknowned for its fishing, with plentiful walleye, catfish, small-mouth bass, and northern pike. And the wintertime ice-fishing is legendary here at Keyhole State Park. The wildlife that the water attracts is spectacular. There are abundant populations of white-tailed deer and wild turkey, and more than 200 species of birds. The reservoir and natural wetlands provide sanctuary, and there are frequent sightings of bald eagles and osprey here at scenic Keyhole State Park.
