Gillette Overview

Gillette is a city of about 20,000 persons, situated in Northeastern Wyoming. Gillette serves as the county seat of Campbell County. It is located in the Powder River Basin, an area rich in natural resources including oil, natural gas, coal, and methane. Some of the largest open pit coal mines in the world are near Gillette, and they provide low sulphur coal to utility and power companies across the US.

The Big Horn Mountains are about an hour and a half west of Gillette by car, and the Black Hills are about an hour and a half east of Gillette, so it is conveniently located for hunting, fishing, camping, hiking and skiing. It is also a gateway to Yellowstone National Park in Northwest Wyoming, as it is situated on Interstate 90, the major east-west roadway for this part of the country. Devil's Tower National Monument is also nearby.
