Welcome to Rock Springs!

As the 5th largest city in the state of Wyoming and largest city in the county of Sweetwater Rock Springs is known as “The Home of 56 Nationalities” due to the influx of immigrants from all over the world who came to work in the many coal mines located here which provided coal for the Union Pacific Railroad Company’s steam locomotives as well as a heat source for local residents.  Rock Springs still celebrates our rich heritage every year during International Days held at Bunning Park in the downtown area.  A festival with great food, costumes and traditions are shared from different cultures with all who attend.

Rock Springs is home to Western Wyoming Community College and the Sweetwater County Events Complex which hosts many events throughout the year including Wyoming’s Big Show with a carnival, concerts, 4H events and rodeo entertainment.  The Events Complex also hosts many motocross, BMX and car races throughout the year.  The National High School Rodeo Finals are also hosted by the Events Complex bringing competitors from all around the world here to compete against one another for an opportunity to secure the title.

Rock Springs is also home to many industrial businesses related to coal, trona, oil, natural gas, wind and solar energy.  Located along the Interstate 80 and Highway 191 corridors, the opportunities for recreation are endless.  Hunting, fishing, biking, hiking, ATV’s or whatever you choose can be found within a very short distance with many great restaurants and hotels to choose from.

We are very proud of our history as well as who we are today.  The City of Rock Springs has been my home for 54 years.  My wife Stacie and I have raised four wonderful children in Rock Springs and we enjoy the many recreational opportunities found here in Sweetwater County.  Lake Flaming Gorge is located just 30 minutes south and is created by flow from the Green River which begins its journey high in the Wind River Mountain Range running its path across Southwest Wyoming and into the Flaming Gorge where boating, camping and fishing are just a few of the spectacular opportunities that can be found in the most pristine settings.

The City of Rock Springs promotes many new business opportunities and city staff invites you to make your dreams become reality.  We welcome you and our family to our community and hope you will enjoy your visit and make Rock Springs your home.  The success of our community is directly related to the great quality of life we continue to improve for our residents.

Mayor, City of Rock Springs
