The State Land Access Information Application is a tool developed by OSLI to assist users to determine if certain state lands are legally accessible. State land is distinguishable from federal public lands for the reason that it is held in trust and managed for the exclusive intergenerational benefit of Wyoming public schools and other designated beneficiaries.
The Board of Land Commissioners (BLC) by and through the Office of State Lands and Investments (OSLI) administer approximately 3.5 million acres of surface estate and 3.9 million acres of mineral estate for the purpose of producing income to support public schools and other State institutions and beneficiaries. State lands, generally located in Sections 16 and 36 of each township, are scattered across the state, however, there are many large consolidated parcels.
Under the direction of the BLC, OSLI generates revenue from state lands in a number of ways, including but not limited to, mineral extraction, grazing leases, crop land leases, land sales, land use permits, forest health and wildland fire management.
The BLC and OSLI encourage the public to enjoy the privilege of using state land for hunting, fishing and other recreational purposes. However, with this privilege comes the responsibility of using the land in a respectful manner to ensure beneficiaries are not harmed and that future generations can continue to enjoy the same privilege.
The rules defining this privilege are simple. First and foremost, it is your responsibility to know where you are. Anyone crossing private land to reach state land must have the permission of the private landowner. The landowner is under no obligation to grant such permission. No off-road vehicle use, overnight camping or open fires are allowed. All motorized vehicles must remain on established roads. New roads cannot be created, nor can established roads be extended by public users. Activities that would damage state lands, roads, improvements, or lessee property interest are prohibited. Cultivated croplands are not open to public use.
Functionality will be available at a later date.
