“Beautiful spot, lots of bugs”

Reviewed Jul 16, 2018

Overall Rating

We got in at dusk, in need of a place to stop for the night. It was beautiful and quiet save for a cpl trucks that went through but we’re in no way a nuisance. There was a constant, warm wind which was nice and not too much as to make it difficult to cook on our stove. The bathrooms were stocked with toilet paper and relatively clean. ... more

“Big Sandy Reservoir, Wy”

Reviewed May 24, 2017

Overall Rating

“Great Boondocking Location”

Reviewed Jan 21, 2016

Overall Rating

My wife and I spent the night here while on the way from the Denver area to Grand Teton National Park. We found it by accident, but we are so glad we did. We had a great night and the stars were fantastic. We camped on a bluff overlooking the lake on the south side. The area around is pretty much high desert sagebrush and you can s... more
