“Awesome!!!!!”

We got here and found it empty. I am guessing that it was empty because it was the middle of the week in the middle of December. It was gorgeous. The road was dirt. There were no hook ups. There were numerous pit toilets. There was potable water available. There were trains, but we didn't find them bothersome. If we lived local we woul... more

Stayed here in late October 2018 for 2 nights. The campground is huge and we were the only people on the whole place. Blue spigot on the West side of the park had potable water and there was a working dump station on the East side close to our site. Site 2 was quite level and had plenty of space for our rig and car. Some of the roa... more

Stayed overnight during 2nd week of May - got good directions from the lady at the info center - there were maybe 4 or 5 other campers - had unfortunately bad weather in the way of terrible wind gusts but that can happen anytime anywhere I reckon - as others have pointed out this campground is close to the railroad tracks and they run ... more

I stayed here late in the season...Oct 1st 2017. I only saw three campers in the East side of the park. 3 miles off the interstate. 55 miles East of Cheyenne. There are supposedly 175 sites here. Find a place and then go back to the entrance to get the paperwork that indicates where you are staying. No charge. Donations only... more

“Convenient to highway, on lake and free!”

Reviewed Aug 23, 2017

Overall Rating

The sites at this sleepy campground are variable. We overlooked the beach and not too far from vault toilets. Donations are accepted. Some Roads within park are really rutted and I was worried about damaging my car - so be cautious. Also train noise throughout night was annoying!

Close to road and train tracks.
