Moorcroft, Wyoming, population 1009, is located in Northeastern Wyoming on the banks of the Belle Fourche River where the highway crossed the “Old Texas Trail”. Moorcroft was the largest shipping point in the United States during the 1890s. Moorcroft is a bustling town historically based in ranching but now serves the coal and oil industries as well. Here, the culture of the Old West is still evident.
Today the cheerful community is home to restaurants, motels, and gas stations that provide a great place to take a break during your travels. Surrounded by rolling hills and prairies, among purple sage, pure air, and blue skies, you will still find Moorcroft is in the heart of Wyoming’s best ranch land.
The town explodes with excitement each summer during the second weekend in July for the annual Jubilee Celebration. A parade, daily events, and live music fill the downtown area.
Moorcroft’s western culture lives on through the communities’ rodeos, Heritage Roundup at the museum, and western hospitality!
