Playing in Casper
Casper is a great place to relax and have fun. The Casper Events Center is the largest indoor venue in the state; it draws in national artists and concerts on a regular basis, seats up to 9,500 people at a time and attracts more than 250,000 visitors each year.
If you prefer downhill skiing, Casper is home to the Hogadon Ski Area, which offers 14 trails and over 600 feet of vertical drop. The city boasts 42 parks, a large recreation center, an ice arena and an indoor aquatics center. The city also offers nine family sports leagues featuring 500 teams totaling 5,268 players.
Love to kayak? In Rapid Magazine's Spring 2012 issue Casper's whitewater park made their top three picks for engineered whitewater parks in urban rivers. Casper's park is touted for being a great place to warm up before heading out to nearby natural North Platte runs. Have fun and remember to wear a lifejacket! Don't have a lifejacket? You can borrow one from any of Casper's fire stations on a first come, first serve basis.
Still haven't found what you're looking for? The city also is the home to four golf courses, including the 27 hole Municipal Golf Course. It also boasts five museums, two minor league sports teams, the Stuckenhoff shooting range, and the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra.
