We hiked Turtle Rock which begins at the Vedauwoo Campgrounds. It is about a three mile hike of fairly flat and rocky terrain. The whole family can enjoy this hike.

We visited after a friend recommended this park while we were vacationing in the Cheyenne area. WOW! What a neat place. Nice hiking trails and absolutely the coolest scenery.

This is a terrific park to visit on a day trip. Kids love it, and they can run and jump all they want while adults can enjoy a low-key, very moderately paced pace around the loop. Be sure to picinic. If you are into wildflowers...More

About 20 minutes outside of Laramie and Cheyenne. Kind of in-between the two. Great for a day or overnight for camping. Most of the areas charge a day use fee, but if you search you can find some free areas and hike in to meet...More

Was very lucky to read about Vedauwoo.. Most unusual rock formations. Almost no signs pointing to area. Saw sign for Vedauwoo Road and took that exit. Wished we had more time to take some of the hikes in the park.

Another interesting place to stop and check out on the way to Laramie from Cheyenne. Read about how Vedauwoo got its name and stop along the way. Very interesting and fun to visit.

The best spots do. Much of the campground has been cleared of trees due to pine beetle, so many of the campsites are treeless. Many of those are often available. The upper Campground allows RVs. The lower Campground is tents... More
