Rendezvous is a 5-day campout at Medicine Bow National Forest, between Cheyenne and Laramie.
The Rendezvous Event provides a friendly, safe, GLBT-affirming environment for everyone, from everywhere. Pitch a tent or bring an RV and join us for a week of making new friends, entertainment, and outdoor adventure.
Rendezvous is an experience you will not forget.
From laughing around the campfire with friends, old and new, and enjoying the crisp air and bright stars while cooking out, you’ll have fond memories for years to come. That’s why so many people return to Rendezvous year after year.
Can I bring my pet?
Absolutely! We love pets! But, when walking around, your pet should be on their leash and no pets are allowed at the entertainment events at the big top tent where shows and entertainment events occur.
Are there showers available?
Yes. Shower units are provided by Rendezvous and are available for $5 per shower.
Are there restrooms available?
Yes. Porto-johns are throughout the campsite and are well-maintained!
Is there a lake nearby?
Yes. North Crow Reservoir and Curt Gowdy State Park Lake are nearby; but not within walking distance. They are both several miles away, but accessible. On Friday, 1:15 pm – 4:45 pm, there will be a bunch of people from Rendezvous who will go to North Crow for canoeing (all equipment will be provided).
Can I build a campfire?
Yes. Campfires are allowed provided there are no fire bans imposed by the USFS or Albany County.
Where’s the nearest Walmart or Convenience Store in case I forget something?
The nearest Walmarts are both in Laramie and Cheyenne, but there is a gas station at exit 323 off of Rt 80, about 15 miles from the Rendezvous Campsite.
