Nicknamed "Oil City" for its long history of oil drilling, this community lies at the foot of Casper Mountain, and along the North Platte River. The area has a western cowboy heritage, with Casper offering visitors many family-friendly attractions to explore. The Fort Caspar museum offers a look at local history; from prehistoric civilizations through the pioneer days. The river serves as the perfect recreation location for camping, boating and fishing. Skiers flock to the slopes of Casper Mountain during winter to enjoy fresh powder. You’ll likely want to choose your hotel depending on what time of year you visit; in the winter you’ll want to be near the slopes.
U.S. Highway 20, State Highways 251 and 252 pass through the city. The Black Hills Stage Lines and the Casper Area Transportation Coalition provide local and long-range transportation. Passenger service is also offered by the Casper/Natrona County International Airport (CPR).
Fort Caspar was constructed in the mid-1800s, and the community grew on the east side of the installation after it closed. In addition to wagons journeying along primitive roads, ferry services provided transportation along the North Platte River. The settlement developed in anticipation of the Wyoming Central Railway. Though named for the fort, the name became Casper due to a typing error on the registration. The Midwest destination has a semi-arid climate that produces cold winters and hot summers with little precipitation.
