Welcome to Campbell County!
Most of the visitors who travel to Wyoming do so in search of the Wild West. And while the northeastern region does boast its fair share of ranches and rodeos, it’s known for its minerals—coal, oil and gas and uranium, to name a few.
This small section of the United States is most commonly referred to as the Energy Capital of the Nation. More than one-fourth of all American coal is mined from the Powder River Basin in Campbell County, which is in high demand today because it is low in sulfur—i.e., low emissions. Campbell County is the second largest producer of oil in the state, was the leading crude oil producer in 2010. Gas is also produced in Campbell County, and is piped south to Colorado and east to Nebraska.
Campbell County was established in 1911. It is home to the cities of Gillette and Wright, along with the unincorporated communities of Recluse and Rozet. The county seat of Gillette is named for 1890s railroad surveyor Edward Gillette.
