Overall Rating

Great Campground located in the Bighorn Mountains next to Shell Creek.The sites are relatively flat and level, and deep enough for our 32' fifth and truck. There are only 15 sites, so if you want to get in on a weekend you will need to reserve early.

The good.

  1. Level sites.
  2. Quiet. Most of the time you only hear the creek.
  3. Off the beaten path.
  4. Small. (not hundreds of campers plied on top of each other!)
  5. Vault toilets are clean and nice.

The bad.

  1. A mile and a half of gravel to get there.
  2. No cell service.
  3. The dump station is several miles away.
  4. No electrical hookups.
  5. No showers and only vault toilets.
