Gillette College Outdoor Activities

Crossroad of the West

Located in northeastern Wyoming, Gillette College is uniquely positioned as both a gateway to the far west and a hub for local adventure. The College is less than an hour’s drive from scenic hikes and climbing opportunities like Devil’s Tower National Monument; picturesque camping locales like Thunder Basin National Grassland; and fishing/boating areas such as Keyhole Reservoir. It is also approximately two hours away from the Black Hills and Mount Rushmore to the east and the Bighorn Mountains to the West.
