Laramie Peak Area

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

The Laramie Peak area is located in east central Wyoming, stretching from southeast of Casper to west of Wheatland.  This portion of the Medicine Bow National Forest is part of the Laramie Range and is dominated by the jagged 10,274 foot crest of Laramie Peak.  The Laramie Peak area is managed by the Douglas Ranger District.

With nearly 180,000 acres on the Medicine Bow National Forest, the Laramie Peak area offers many public uses and recreation opportunities such as hunting, fishing, hiking, OHV riding, and many others.

From I25 at Douglas or Glendo, expect to drive one hour just to get to the National Forest boundary and another half hour to an hour to get where you are headed.

Dispersed Camping is allowed on all Forest Service Land in the Laramie Peak Unit, the restrictions are on motor vehicle parking and road access.  The Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) identifies what roads are open to the public.  From there, you can camp along open roads and trails, parking 1 to 2 car lengths from the road and in selected areas up to 300' from the road (see MVUM) and in either case, you cannot cause habitat damage. 

After the Campgrounds close (Esterbrook, Friend Park, Curtis Gulch and Campbell Creek), they can be used for dispersed camping.  The vault toilet will be open but water and trash services are not available.  Please pack in and pack out, limit stays to 14 days and bear in mind that many of the county roads have limited maintenance from November to May.
