Can you sleep at a Wyoming rest stop?

We’re taking a road trip across the country and just curious if anyone knows we’re allowed to nap at a rest stop or Walmart in case we get too tired as my friend can fall asleep at any given moment during anytime anywhere. I saw on WYdot you were allowed to but unsure how old it was maybe could’ve been recent but unsure.

    Most rest stop do not allow overnight camping, but you should not be hassled for a short nap, 10 to 15 minutes. You should also think about stopping for coffee.

    Yes. That's why rest stops are there, so drivers can rest, and rest includes sleep. You're just not supposed to camp there, like stay overnight.

    Sleeping at rest areas

    Camping is prohibited at rest areas, but drivers who

    need rest to safely continue their travels can sleep in

    their vehicles in the parking lots. The National Sleep

    Foundation recommends a nap of 15-20 minutes to

    improve alertness and driving skills.

    If you need more than a nap, you can sleep in your

    vehicle for a longer period, but don’t pitch a tent,

    extend your RV’s slideouts or otherwise set up for an

    extended stay.

    Travelers who want to camp will find 175 public

    campgrounds around the state.

    More information about campgrounds and other

    lodging options can be found in the Wyoming Vacation

    Directory available online at,

    or by calling (800) 225-5996 or (307) 777-7777.

    Yes, short naps would be allowed, but may not be a safe move. You would be better off getting a hotel room, for a proper rest.
