Recreation is managed for the Bureau of Reclamation by Natrona County Roads, Bridges, and Parks Department, 538 S. Wyoming Blvd., Mills, WY 82644; (307) 235-9325. Located on the North Platte River 30 miles southwest of Casper, in Natrona County. Access from U.S. 220 via County Rd. 412. 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.
