Walking this space can be a calming, spiritual experience. My husband has gone here, several times, while on business. He brought us here - myself and son - to experience this sacred space.

We decided to stop here because the appearance looked so strange from I80. We were not disappointed. The rock formations are amazing! One even looked like a shark!! Please stop when going to Cheyenne, well worth it!!!

We hiked all day and loved the views! Everyone should go when visiting Laramie. Definitely coming here again when in Laramie. This could be an all day trip or just a few hours, depending on how long you want to be there.

Interesting rocks. We arrived during a thunderstorm with lots of lighting. It was very eerie. This recreation area includes a campground run by the USDA Forest Service. You can hike, climb the rocks or fish. It is easy to get to - right off I 80 exit (329 ) 27 miles west of Cheyenne WY same exit as the Ames... More

Amazing scenery and the rock formations are fascinating, not quite like anything I've seen anywhere else. It is kind of hard to find detailed information about parking and hiking online, but we parked at the main entrance up the road from exit 329 off I-80 and picked up a trail map from the self-service entrance kiosk when we arrived (we...

First of all, let me just say that this place took me entirely by surprise. This was an afternoon breakaway trip we took from Cheyenne, where my family and me were staying with my grandparents. My parents had told me about how they would visit this place as kids, but I wasn't expecting much. When we got to the park,... More

Great for climbers (which we are not), picnics and camping. The infrastructure (camping areas and facilities) was very unobtrusive and didn't fight for attention with the gorgeous scenery.

The area is steeped in legends and you can feel the sanctity of the place. There were many hikers around, even for early October. Easy hiking. I'm not a rock climber but I can see how it would be a great place to go. Not to be missed if you're in the area.

Went with my young kids and scrambled up the rocks near the picnic area. It was a blast and beautiful views from the top.

We lived in Laramie years ago. This trip we came back to see old sights. We went to our home, which we originally bought in 1971 for $18,200. We enjoyed downtown, and then the sights around town. Vedawoo was always a favorite. The rock formations are easy to climb and explore. And easy access to I80 just west of Laramie.... More
