Overall Rating

This is an absolutely beautiful spot to camp... when it's summertime! I made the mistake of trying to camp here in late September. The lower two loops, B and C, which are the nicest, were closed. All the water was turned off and there was no camp host. Vault toilets and trash pickup so it was clean. The A loop, open later, has 16 sites and is next to the road, so you hear hunters' trucks passing by on and off throughout the day. I have a 16' trailer so it was no problem for me, but I wouldnt try a rig here longer than 25 feet or so. Only a few spots to fit these. However, the trail up the canyon coming out of the campground is stunningly beautiful. There are waterfalls with pools and lakes up high in the canyon. Probably icy swimming but I wasn't going to try it in September. This campground would be an ideal getaway along I80 if you are en route to Yellowstone in the summer. No bears, just mountain goats! Only $4 with America the Beautiful Pass at this time of year! I got no cell service but texts came through with my Booster on AT&T.
