Rest Areas


Taking a break at any of the 37 rest areas and information centers along Wyoming's highways can make your trip safer and more enjoyable. Stop and stretch. Use the rest rooms. You'll be refreshed and more alert when you get back behind the wheel.

map of rest area locations and facilities available at each site is available for downloading.

Occasionally rest areas must be closed for repairs, maintenance or construction. WYDOT apologizes for any inconvenience this causes for travelers.

Current rest area closures:
  • Fort Steele rest area - The Fort Steele rest area on I-80 near Rawlins will remain closed for ongoing maintenance. The Wyoming Department of Transportation is currently performing ongoing maintenance on the water system, which was due for an overhaul. The work is expected to be ongoing for the next few weeks.
  • Wagonhound rest area - The Wagonhound rest area 50 miles west of Laramie is closed due to structural issues. There is no time frame as to when it will reopen.
