It's right off of I80 between Laramie and Cheyenne, and is a beautifully preserved spiritual area. The rock formations are unbelievably beautiful, and you can drive through to Happy Jack Road in 8 miles. There's LOTS of areas to just pull over and get out....More

While still a very nice place for rock climbing and hiking, the pine beetles have caused a lot of trees to be removed from the campgrounds. The water system hasn't worked in a few years. There is a lot of traffic in the surrounding forest...More
