“Lakeside with great WY views. ”

Reviewed Jul 03, 2018

Overall Rating

It's quiet with lots of site options. Our kids loved being next to the lake and being able to swim. It was very windy at times, then again this is WY. Bathrooms are pit toilets. It was great cheap dry camping with excellent cell coverage. We got a lot of work done and the kids had a blast.

There are a couple swim beaches that were really nicely maintained. It was so cool to swim in the lake on a hot day with snow covered mountains in view! Stayed here for 3 nights and... more

Overall Rating

We stayed here after we got to another campground that did not have cell service. I wish we had known sooner! This place is beautiful with 8 electrical sites and over 100 other sites, many lake front. We stayed 2 nights at an electrical site for $15 and then moved to a lake side dry camping site for $10/night. We needed to refill out f... more
