Visit one of Wyoming's first tourist attractions.

Ayers Natural Bridge Park is located at the bottom of a gorgeous red rock canyon. It is just 15-minutes from Douglas, Wyoming. Over millions of years, a bend in LaPrele Creek, originally known as Bridge Creek, wore away at the wall of solid rock through the opening. Eventually, it formed a 30-foot high, 50-foot wide arch known as Ayres Natural Bridge. Only 1-mile south of the Oregon Trail, the Natural Bridge was often visited by emigrants traveling west. It is considered one of Wyoming's first tourist attractions because of the attention it received. In 1843, a pioneer described it as "a natural bridge of solid rock, over a rapid torrent, the arch being regular as tho' shaped by art."

The park is free to visit, and there is a small campground in the park, plus open picnic areas and covered tables. There is a playground, hiking paths, a sand volleyball court, fishing areas, and horseshoe pits. Pets are not allowed in the park. Groups often use the area for special events, family reunions, company picnics, and outdoor weddings.  The area is open from April 15th - October 15th, from 8 am to 9 pm. Registered campers can choose to stay overnight.
