General Information

Description - Gray Reef Reservoir is managed for the Bureau of Reclamation by Natrona County Roads, Bridges and Parks Department. Water surface elevation of Gray Reef fluctuates widely from nearly full to nearly empty on a daily basis. Fish are not stocked in the reservoir. There is fishing available at and below Gray Reef Dam. Boat ramp, campground and parking are available downstream of the dam.

Attractions - Under its prescribed function as a reregulating reservoir, the water surface elevation of Gray Reef fluctuates widely from nearly full to nearly empty on a daily basis. Therefore, fish are not stocked in the reservoir. A barrier-free fishing pier and restroom are located at Gray Reef Dam. A primitive campground is located below the dam. Canoes and other small watercraft may be launched from the campground. Available species include brown trout, cutthroat trout, rainbow trout, and walleye. Rainbow and cutthroat are stocked in the river below Gray Reef Dam. A boat ramp and parking lot are located one-half mile downstream of the dam.

Recreation - Visitors can enjoy camping, fishing, hiking, viewing wildlife and boating. A primitive campground is located below the dam. Canoes and other small watercraft may be launched from the campground. Available species include brown trout, cutthroat trout, rainbow trout, and walleye. Rainbow and cutthroat are stocked in the river below Gray Reef Dam. A boat ramp and parking lot are located one-half mile downstream of the dam.

Climate - The climate in Wyoming changes with the topography. Generally the western mountains and basins receive large amounts of precipitation and create a rain shadow for eastern Wyoming. Most of the precipitation occurs during the winter months and falls in the form of snow. Temperatures are cooler in this region than the eastern part of the state, because of the generally higher elevation.

Location - Gray Reef Reservoir is located on the North Platte River 30 miles southwest of Casper, in Natrona County. Access from Highway 220 via County Rd. 412.
