“Great spot on the water ”

Reviewed Jul 08, 2019

Overall Rating

Although we weren’t quite sure we were in an official spot, we setup alone on a Monday night near the boat ramp by a rock fire ring right on the water. Bathrooms were close by (although dirty) and we did have a neighbor a couple hundred yards away who enjoyed his music well into midnight, luckily we were too tired to care. Great spo... more

“Great free camping”

Reviewed May 29, 2019

Overall Rating

If arriving from/exiting north, know that the road from Ft. Laramie is gravel. It has areas of washboarding, and can be slow going due to this (10 - 25 mph). The road to/from Guernsey is paved, and visually interesting as a plus. Gate 2 is the closest to the Cottonwood Draw hiking trail, which looked interesting, though we did not... more

“Great place to camp”

Reviewed May 29, 2019

Overall Rating

Great Camping, especially if with multiple rigs. If arriving/exiting from the north, access from Ft. Laramie is on a gravel road that is fairly washboarded in places, making for slow passage. The road from Guernsey is paved and visually more interesting. We arrived on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, having outrun severe weather to... more

Found this nice spot I’m enjoying for two nights (last night and tonight) and wanted to share. It’s just a few miles northeast of Wheatland, WY and south of Ft. Laramie. Easy access. I’m driving a 2000 F150 4x4 pulling a 12’ U-Haul trailer. Pavement or well maintained gravel roads all the way in. Vaulted toilets a short walk down the r... more

“Large Camping Area”

Reviewed Aug 29, 2018

I stayed here overnight on my way to another site. Driving in past the power plant was a little misleading, as they also have "Gates". Don't turn there, just keep driving. It's a long drive but the road is well maintained. Once you do get to the reservoir, you'll know. At least when I got there on a Friday there were already a lot of c... more

Came here for the Eclipse, Glendo was packed. Nice alternative and actually I liked it much more. Paved road to the "Gates" , stayed at Gate 7. A dirt road goes along the sites, not recommended for the Big Boys (rigs) so walk it or take a look before entering. Camping right on the edge of the water, semi-sandy beach. Can get a li... more

We found several water front locations for our big rig with no other RVs within our view. This location is quite large and could support hundreds of RVs. While we were there it was quite warm and the bugs did not make it an ideal experience. We'd love to come back during cooler weather. There are 7 access gates and many sites to choos... more

We followed the gps coordinates of the other reviewer but decided to stop at gate one. The road was paved all the way to the camping area then turned off onto dirt road. Easy to get to and there were plenty of sites. Some cattle came past one night but other than that we only saw a few geese. No service on ATT but when we hooked up our... more

Grayrocks Reservoir has 8 or so entrances that are suitable for all but the largest motorhomes, though most of the sites are next to the lake along the perimeter road and are only suitable for 4x4s. #1 has the most RV accessible sites. Sites are grass/dirt next to the road and may be soft or muddy. Most of them have fire rings. There ... more
