This is the big daddy of C/G's in this area. If you don't have a geezer pass there is a daily charge to enter the Park plus the overnight camping fee. Sites do NOT have electric or water. Water is available as well as a dump station. Plenty of room and beautiful scenery at each site for rigs of most sizes. This can be windy during seasonal changes. You will have for visitors and neighbors: Eagles, Ospreys, hawks, geese, ducks, coyotes, the occasional rattler and invariably a mustang or two might wander the C/G during the eveing and early morning hours.

The Canyon area has a wonderful and interesting history. The Big Horn Mtns to the east are gorgeous, but the real prize is to the west, are the Pryor Mountains named after one of Lewis & Clark's soldiers. He brought part of the Corp. back through what is now Yellowstone Park and River. The Pryor Mtns today has a wild horse range that maintains about 200 mustangs that live as they did when they first roamed here. They are a unque breed of horse of Spanish origins. Some today still show slight strippings on their legs (zebra?) and run in groups. Visit the Mustang Center at the entrance to the Park. You will learn a grest deal about these amazing creatures.
