Laramie | Rockies to Tetons
The campground is composed of two loops, winding around the boulders, slabs, and cliffs of the Vedauwoo rock formation which comprises 10 square miles of weathered Sherman granite. There are 28 campsites with tables, fire rings, trash pick up, and vault toilets. This area is constructed to blend in with the natural beauty of the surroundings. The vegetation is a variety of Limber pine, Engleman spruce, Douglas fir, and Aspen.
The general area was once used as a hideout for outlaws. Native Americans thought playful spirits piled up the boulders. All the tent sites are walk-ins and some of them are so secluded, one might feel the “outlaw’s spirit.” There is access to rock climbing and a nature trail through the rocks.
It is located in the Pole Mountain area and is managed by the Laramie Ranger District.
