Newcastle Wyoming can be found at the intersection of US highways 16 and 85 in northeastern Wyoming.
This small community takes pride in the number of lodging establishments and eateries it has to offer the traveler to the Black Hills Region. Newcastle offers the family or individual a variety of lodging, a multitude of gift shops, and several good restaurants.
From Newcastle, you can trace Custer's 1874 route into the Black Hills, drive the Cheyenne - Deadwood Stage Trail, or tour the short grass prairie's open and never-ending spaciousness - its sagebrush, ranches, tumbleweeds, antelope, prairie dogs, birds and more - which echo the days gone by under crystal clear blue skies.
US highway 16 is considered by most who travel it to be the most scenic route between the Black Hills of South Dakota to Yellowstone Park and Teton National Park located in northwestern Wyoming. US 85 is also known as the CanAm Highway because it links Canada with Texas. US 85 in some areas follows the Old Deadwood-Cheyenne Stage line. And at the intersection of these two scenic roads you will find Newcastle Wyoming.
