The drive between Cheyenne and the Vedauwoo is outstanding and the rock formations look ancient like out of Lord of the Rings. This is a must for travelors! Take your camera and enjoy the scenery. We did.

Vedauwoo, a state park between Cheyenne and Laramie, is a hauntingly beautiful haunted place. Boulders and trees both carved by the constant wind will moan and whisper around you. The Indians felt that spirits dwelt here, you could well feel them too, even if you...More

We went as a family to this trail and our children enjoyed climbing on the rock formations. It was an easy hike and short, but there are plenty of other trails that connect to make the visit worthwhile.

The scenery is just awesome. You can spend a weekend here and not get bored. Great fun that dont cost money. Unless you stay at the pay campgrounds.

After traveling for miles and miles and seeing "flat land" - its very surprising to see Vedauwoo just popping out of the ground --- but its certainly worth the stop and a nice place to stretch your legs.

What a wonderful park with a self-pay box at the entrance. You can picnic, walk trails or just sit and enjoy the beauty and catch some wildlife while you are at it.

Turtle Rock Loop @ Vedauwoo is an amazing hike. Fairly easy circuit around some of the most impressive rock formations anywhere in the world. Plenty of boulders to climb & several ponds along the trail.

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
