Power Trip

Recharge your spirit in Campbell County.


When you travel to the edge of the Wild West, you expect the unexpected. During your trip, try Gillette, Wyoming’s unexpected gem also known as the energy capital of the nation. Where you’ll find much more than minerals beneath the surface. In this wild country, we engrain the natural paradise of Wyoming with our own uncommon flavor for a surprisingly authentic experience.

Gillette and Wright are tucked between some of our nation’s most famous monuments, and we fuel vacationers en route to Devils Tower National Monument, the Big Horn Mountain Range, and Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Like any good host, we know the importance of food during your visit, so our local chefs and restaurateurs have worked hard to earn our reputation as an up-and-coming regional foodie destination. For entertainment, the CAM-PLEX Multi-Event Facilities venue hosts everything from Broadway productions to PRCA rodeos. Outside, our pronghorn antelope hunting is some of the country’s best. Along with world-class sporting venues. Truly experience the West with our historic downtown, coal mine tours, buffalo ranch, museums, and more. Whatever you’re exploring, you’re always invited to stay with us.
