Laramie Peak, the highest peak on Converse County’s southern horizon, is 10,272 feet tall. Pioneers passing through the area in the 1800s used the Peak as a guidepost. Laramie Peak was the first “Rocky Mountain” they saw from vantage points as far away as Scottsbluff, Nebraska.

Camping amidst wide-open vistas exists in the Thunder Basin National Grassland north of Douglas. While there aren’t any improved campgrounds, camping is allowed. The Forest Service has additional information on trails and prime locations for outdoor recreation. Their website is https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/mbr/about-forest/offices
