Bring your mountain bike. Stayed in a motor home. Does not have full facilities but nicer than staying in the campgrounds in Cheyenne (which are nice.) Great views. Close to the highway but quiet. If you are just pulling through this is a great stop. See my picture out the front door.

The rock formations in Vedauwoo, while visible from I-80, are much more interesting and impressive up close. This area is very popular with locals as well as people from communities around the front range. The granite rock formations have attracted rock climbers for decades and there are many hiking trails, picnic areas, camping areas and for other outdoor activities. Kids... More

We had a great visit even though we didn't plan to be there and cam prepared with only sneakers/tennis shoes. Trails were very manageable, peaceful and beautiful. Wish we had gotten there earlier in the day so we could have done the entire Turtle head trail.

I have hiked all over the world. This one is special. Rock formations very cool. This is a great high country hiking and climbing area. Highly recommend!

My brother and I went camping up in Vedauwoo a few summers ago, and it was easy access from Laramie. The whole way up was clean and fairly busy, but by searching around, we found an isolated spot that had everything we needed, including a flat grassy spot. A huge part of the mountain pass was behind us, and we... More

Vedauwoo is just a stones throw off the highway between Cheyenne and Laramie Wyoming and well worth a couple of hours of your time to explore! There are picnic tables and a few campsites too! Take your camera because your friends will not believe you when you try to describe the rock formations!

I grew up near here and enjoy this site even more now as I share it with my grown children. Wonderful place for a summer picnic, scampering around the rocks. Secluded and pure Wyoming!

Located between Cheyenne and Laramie right off I-80. Not highly publicized, but well worth the stop. We enjoy hiking, and this a park that is easy hiking for young and old. Absolutely beautiful rock formations and open meadows. Felt like we were stepping back in timein the Old West. Saw a moose and a mule dear on the trail. Tent... More

This place is amazing, very large rocks and pathways to traverse your way up the mountain, various caves and camp resting places along the route up. Very nice camp ground if you have an RV. Only thing is if you go hiking make sure you know your way back cause it's easy to get lost. If your in Laramie area... More
