Campground Description

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. 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 and Native Americans thought playful spirits piled up the boulders. Some of the tent sites are so secluded, one might feel the ""outlaw's spirit."" All the tent sites are walk-ins.Dogs must be leashed in the campground.

    There are no trees to provide any sense of privacy and the tent site areas are not that far from each other. I could see my neighbor from my tent using their ipad in the car and going back and forth to the tent. The site is heavily congested on the weekends in the summer, particularly Friday nights. Every camper started campfires and the smoke burned my families lungs. We have camped at superior places in different States, this had to be the worst loudest (music, yelling) campground possibly due to close location to the University and disrespectful college kids.

    Rock climbing popular here and a couple of nice day hikes amid the fun boulders. Downside is intermittent interstate noise.
