Review of Rock Springs, Wyoming

Nice town but not for everyone, especially the fai

Rock Springs will grow on you. It is a big city (about 20,000) by Wyoming standards. There are a few chain stores and a small mall. Wal-Mart is the main place to shop though. The people are welcoming. Be aware, this town is ISOLATED. Green River is sort of a nearby bedroom community, but otherwise you have to go more than 100 miles to Rawlins or Evanston which have close to 10,000 people. It is also located in high desert which takes some people some getting used to as it is mostly sage brush and very rocky. It is very dry and can be difficult and expensive to maintain a green lawn. We also get both climate extremes. The night life is also lacking for the most part. However, in about two and a half hours you can get to Salt Lake City if you need civilization. Most of the land around here is public and many people partake in dirt biking and four wheeling. The Flaming Gorge Reservoir is also nearby.
