“Great overnight stop, but wouldn't make it a destination.”

Reviewed Nov 04, 2016

Overall Rating

This stay occurred in August. We found a pull-out spot that made it easy for us to park as an overnight stop while in transit. The area is gorgeous and we might have stayed longer in this park if we didn't have some place to go, though we would have looked for another more private site since ours was a pull-out next to the main dirt road and lots of passing vehicles/ATVs were rushing past raising dust. Because so many people are driving up and down this road at fast speeds, the road is very badly washboarded. We enjoyed a beautiful walk among the many amazing rock structures naturally formed here. I'm not sure that I would chance bringing big rigs back since some of the side roads with the boondocking sites are not level and some ruts could cause you to scrape your underside/back end if not careful. But if in a <25 camper, I think you're good. Or unhook and drive in first to scout and claim a good site. We can tell this might be a popular place for the local high school and college (Univ. of WY) students to visit because there was evidence of trash that they didn't bother to take back out with them. Lastly, we work online so Verizon signal is a must - we had 2 bars of voice and good LTE signal with a booster.

The dirt road is very washboard, but you can start to find camping within a 1/4 mile of leaving asphalt. Many sites, spaced about 1/8 mile apart from each other for miles down Vedauwoo Glen Road. Some are better than others, but otherwise it is all roughly the same landscape.

You can hear the Interstate traffic, and a lot of folks use this dirt road to get to different trails or climbing areas for the rocks. No a lot of privacy, but the view is still worth it. Take to the trails yourself as they are worth it.

Verizon signal is weak but do-able in the first mile or so of sites and weakens beyond. Booster will help, but it is far from a perfect signal. No TMobile data to speak of.
