Superior, Wyoming is located just 23 miles east from Rock Springs nestled at the foot of the panoramic Continental Divide. 


We invite you to enjoy a modern day voyage into yesteryear to a town forgotten by time.  Superior remains a diamond in the rough for those seeking real adventure in authentic old west sightseeing.  In its heyday, Superior was a bustling town of over 3,000, lured by underground coal mines.  Today, only 336 hearty souls keep this isolated “Ghost Town” alive.
