Travel Information

Gillette, WY

Campbell County, Wyoming, situated in the Powder River Basin of northeast Wyoming, is the “Energy Capital” of the United States. And that is a monumental story.

The railroad provided the impetus to create the town of Gillette, even before Wyoming was a state. However, it was the oil and coal booms of the 1970s that made the area the “Energy Capital” that it is today. Open pit coal mines work around the clock to provide our nation’s electricity. The Powder River Basin produces 40% of the nation’s coal and is the largest supplier in the United States. Coalbed methane and oil add to the mineral richness of the county.

These communities are rich in many ways and provide the amenities available to visitors that are second to none in Wyoming. Stop in and experience the extensive facilities open to the public.
