Extension given for state park RFPs


January 16, 2020

Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for both the Star Plunge and Days Inn in Hot Springs State Park have been given a 45-day extension.

Originally, the Wyoming State Legislature wanted the RFPs to be submitted for the two available concessionaires by January 17, 2020, but the additional 45-days will push back the closing date to March 2.

After examining a number of factors, including ensuring adequate time has been offered for potential companies to submit an RFP for these assets within HSSP, it was determined the move back would allow for a more comprehensive, complete and accurate bid from interested parties.

The two businesses are currently on month-to-month contracts with the state, something the legislature put their foot down on, formalizing legislation that will require all state park concessionaires to have multi-year contracts in order to retain their status.

The legislation went into effect on January 1.

The RFPs are currently available from the Wyoming Division of State Parks, Historic Sites and Trails and may be downloaded from their website.

Questions regarding the RFPs can be directed to Julie Huntley at
