Camp closes for the season after Labor Day but looked nice. Smaller sites, all back in. Lots of shade and the camp backs up to a creek with lots of willows. There is a FS ranger station just down the road as well. Sites 1 and 2 were off to the side by themselves and shared a large parking area, good for a larger group maybe, and the rest of the sites are around the central camp loop. One vault toilet located in the center of the loop. Garbage and water available in season. All gravel roads and pads. Basic table and fire ring at each site. The camp is right next to the road so noise and dust could be a problem. Access would be difficult for most rigs but the locals find a way...the only road in from Big Horn, WY is a single lane dirt road with lots of steep grades, tight turns, rocky and washed out areas. 20 miles or so. Would be a challenge for experienced campers to make the trek. The approach from the West and Highway 14 / FS 26 isn't much better...30 miles of steep two-lane highway and another 30 of narrow, windy dirt roads.
Nice camp overall but a little pricy for a basic FS camp and really out of the way to get to. Scout the area first without your camper and make sure you know what you're getting into!
