Kaycee is a town in Johnson County, Wyoming, United States. The population was 263 at the 2010 census. It is home to a museum that preserves the cattle ranching heritage of the area, especially the history of the Johnson County War.

The government required the name to be spelled out resulting in "Kaycee". The town is now home to three churches, two bars, one restaurant, one store, one museum, one k-12 school, and not a single stoplight.
