Vedauwoo State Park is a secluded, rocky oasis in southeastern Wyoming. Located just 27 miles west of F.E. Warren, Vedauwoo is a close escape for those looking to leave the dorms and explore the outdoors.

Entrance into Vedauwoo costs $4 for daily use, and the park offers a host of activities to participate in, including hiking, mountain biking and camping.

The campgrounds are open May 15 through Nov. 1. The grounds can accommodate recreational vehicles, though there are no hook-ups, and has an area for tent camping.

The main attraction of Vedauwoo lies in its ability to attract those who wish to conquer its rocky hills. From beginners to experienced climbers, Vedauwoo has something to offer everyone.

Bouldering is a dangerous activity and in order to make it to the top of Vedauwoo and return safely to the bottom, climbing gear is required. Airmen should fill out an Air Force form 4391, High-Risk Activities Worksheet, if they intend to participate in the climbing at Vedauwoo.
