This place is absolutely gorgeous but I'd suggest taking the roads with a truck, SUV, or something like a Subaru that sits up off the ground a bit. There are some parts of the driving path that are just big enough for one vehicle to...More

I grew up in this area and love visiting Vedauwoo. Great place for famiy get togethers and some rock climbing. It goes from basic trails for all ages, to more skilled climbing.

Beautiful when weather is good or well prepared. Can get very bad when bad weather strikes and one is unprepared as I was. I went on the gravel road during a snow storm and got stuck in a snow bank. Very little food or water...More

This is a climber’s paradise. I didn’t have enough time to do an actual hike or climb, but I did get a chance to get a decent look around and it was so beautiful. It’s definitely a spot that is well taken care of, but...More

Check out Box Canyon for a great picnic! Giant boulders that have no business hanging precariously overhead.

We camped at Vedauwoo last week. The campground was very overcrowded. No campground host to offer assistance. Multiple groups staying in single sites. The vault toilets were filthy, stunk and had no paper. It was a nice setting and the hike was fun. Do not...More

Everyone should take the time to at least drive thru this area. The rock formations are just amazing. Trees were just beginning to turn color making the scenery all the more spectacular. There were a few people rock climbing which is always interesting to watch....More

A line of beautiful rock formations that look totally out of place in the generally barren landscape.

The rock formations are stunning, and if you hit this place in the fall when the Aspen are shimmering yellow against the rocks, it's magical. Just off of I-80, so easy to access, but so gorgeous and uncrowded that you can't believe it's that accessible....More

Yes, in the developed campground areas. Undeveloped areas have no water source, you need to pack your own.
