Clayton’s Slough

To find Clayton’s Slough, begin from the Bureau of Land Management interpretive sign at Emigrant Gap about 12 miles west of Casper, Wyo., travel west for 1.4 miles to the intersection with County Road 12. Turn right (north) and travel one-tenth of a mile to the paved road. Turn left and travel west for 1.8 miles to the intersection with County Road 319. Turn left and proceed southwest for 7.2 miles to Rock Avenue; another 2 miles to the bottom of the hill will bring you to Clayton’s Slough, a low place, sometimes swampy, to the left of the road as you are heading southwest.
