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.

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.
