Plans for new auto parts store in old Cow Camp lot


December 28, 2016

WORLAND — The Cow Camp restaurant in Worland, which closed earlier this year, was demolished over the weekend, apparently to make room for an O’Reilly Auto Parts Store.

Nick Kruger of the City of Worland Department of Building Safety, said the property at 1110 Big Horn Avenue is in the process of being sold. Current owner, per the Washakie County Assessor map on the Washakie County website,, is Dave Hout of Worland.

Kruger said since the sale is not complete he could not disclose the name of the owners but did say “the company that submitted for the plan review (at the location) is O’Reilly Auto Parts. They went through the BAPC (Board of Adjustments and Planning Commission) for zoning review and then through the building department for plan review. They have not pulled the (building) permit yet so they are not allowed to build yet, but we have reviewed their plans for plan compliance.”

He said the city does not have a specific timeline but construction was expected to begin in the spring.

According the Board of Adjustments and Planning Commission (BAPC) minutes for Nov. 10, “Wesley Weimer with Anderson Engineering, representing O’Reilly Auto Parts presented information on demolition and construction at the current Cow Camp building on 1110 Big Horn Avenue for a new 4,000 square-foot O’Reilly Auto Parts Store.

According to the minutes, in addressing a question from Chairman Garret Immesoete, Planning Advisor Ron Vanderpool said he reviewed the O’Reilly lighting plan and they will have “downcast lighting to light the parking lot, which will have zero impact to the residential area.”
