One of Wyoming’s most sought after and treasured wealth lies in its abundance of wildlife. This plentiful habitat of fowl, fish and game has attracted outdoors men from all parts of the globe.
To the west and south, the majestic mountains fling themselves skyward in defiance of the plains which spawned them eons ago. The great plains of Wyoming stretch eastward, their vastness a reminder that this is the West that was, still preserved in the condition as first seen by explorers and pioneers who settled on the windswept prairies.
Glenrock is situated roughly at the confluence of the North Platte River and Deer Creek. The Platte is becoming a fine recreational area for hunting and fishing.

Stream fishing is also available in the northern end of the Laramie Mountains just six miles south of town. Casper Mountain, located 25 miles west, offers fine winter skiing and snowmobiling as well as being a popular summer recreational area. Social, religious, fraternal and educational activities are available along with a full slate of recreational programs ranging from golf, physical fitness and health centers to baseball, basketball and tennis.
Highly-acclaimed educational facilities in Glenrock have demonstrated a considerable degree of inventiveness in the design of buildings and implementation of programs, geared to the specific needs of individual students.
To educate Glenrock’s pupils, the district maintains four local schools and two rural, one-teacher schools. All four schools are modern with excellent facilities such as swimming pools, auditoriums and a track and activities complex. Although the school offers a full slate of social and athletic events for both men and women the emphasis is on the mastery of basic fundamentals.
The Glenrock Diagnostic and Treatment Center offers the citizens of Glenrock and western Converse County a total health care center.
