The Salt Creek Oil Field around the town of Midwest, Wyo., about 40 miles north of Casper, is still producing oil today and was at one time the largest producing oil field in the world.
The Tour Guide to the Salt Creek field prepared for the Natrona County Commission, gives a concise history of the field and details a 16-stop tour. A person traveling alone can complete the tour comfortably in three or four hours. A larger group would take longer.
