Vedauwoo is a great place to camp, picnic, hike, climb and scramble on rocks. There is a nice handicap accessible walking trail. We like to hike around Turtle Rock and scramble around on the rocks. If you're lucky, you may see some moose.

It's just a couple of bucks to get in for the day and you have access to campgrounds, picnic areas, parking and trails. You can walk around the entire rock structure you can walk along the creek that runs on the east side, or you can climb the rocks to get a great view from the top. It does not... More

This area has a lot of off-road opportunities. The rocks are beautiful and great fun to climb around on. Pack a picnic lunch and spend the day driving around the area exploring. I've made 2 visits and will definitely be back for more!

A fantastic area - amazing for kids/people that love climbing. We only stayed for a quick visit about 1 hour, but we could easily have spend more time. I bet it's even more beautiful at sunrise or sunset.

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.

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!
