Originally we were aiming for Casper Mountain, but decided to take a shot on the North Platte River area instead. The weather was rather iffy and we didn't want to go higher if it was going to get cooler. And we are sooooo glad we headed here!
This is about 20 minutes outside of Casper on Rte 220...about 4 miles in on 316. The turn itself isn't very well marked, so slow down! The road in is gravel, nice and wide and well maintained (other than a little washboard).
There are actually 3 campgrounds on this road (the first is tent only, the second is bigger with more sites and a boat ramp and then the third which we stayed at). We chose the 3rd one for a couple of reasons. One - there was absolutely no one else at it and Two - water access was much easier. We could put our chairs right at the rivers edge...Perfect!
There are pit toilets here. A firepit and picnic table at each site. The area had been recently mowed and it was clean!
The North Platte River is a Blue Ribbon/Gold Medal fishing river and though it was high, the Hubs had no problem catching some nice rainbows. There were also deer, antelope, rabbits and tons of birds.
According to the Game Warden this is the busy time of year. Once it gets hot every one heads to the reservoir. While we were there, one truck camper came in Friday night. We like this kind of "busy".
Cell signal was null, unless we went out onto 220. There we got 4 bars of 4g with Verizon.
Oh...and if you have the Access Pass it's only $5/night.
Definitely would return here again...already planning on it!
