Overall Rating

The Barry's Landing area actually consists of 2 campgrounds, Trail Creek CG and Barry's Landing. There are approximately 25 sites in the Trail Creek CG and 4 sites at Barry's Landing. Both campgrounds are accessed from the Barry's Landing road which is about 15 miles or so from Horseshoe Bend Campground. The road to either campground is paved and easy travel. These campgrounds are about 1 mile apart. There is also Tent camping areas before getting to the Trail Creek CG with lots of trees. Barry's Landing is used by day use fisherman/boaters for their trailers (there is a boat ramp) and the sites there provide a beautiful view if not too windy. During season changes, it may be too windy at Barry's Landing for some people, but again you have a beautiful view. All campgrounds have a vault toilet.

More sites exist at Trail Creek CG, although they are spaced fairly close together without much vegetation or privacy. However, there are more trees and better bird viewing at this campground. All of my stay was at Trail Creek CG since it was spring and very windy at Barry's Landing area. Water and very easy Dump station are at Horseshoe Bend, so if you need either, do it before coming up. Very quiet and peaceful during my stay and only had a few other campers. Trailer Creek and Barry's Landing will fit most trailers and Class C's. I love sites #22 - #24 at Trail Creek, more privacy. No reservations here.

Note: NO cell service at any of the campgrounds. However, 10 miles south of Barry's Landing is a pull-out and I had 2 bars of LTE there and possibly up near Lockhart Ranch road (non-paved) there is service. Some fun, easy, historical hiking up near Brady's Landing of old ranches, get hiking brochure at Visitor's Center. Also there are canyon boat rides near the Horseshoe Bend CG. Overall, a very interesting place to visit.

Easy to visit the Pryor Mountain Mustangs, Queen Bee Candies (made from Honey) in Lowell, WY, and further up in to the Big Horn Mountains.

“Down a deep canyon, pulled off alongside a creek. Off the access road to boat launch”

A neat place deep in the BHCNRA, Grest paved road about thirty miles north of Lovell. Beautriful sights coming in, travel through a finger of the Pryor Mtn. Mustang Preserve with excellent chance to see mustangs.

Scenery is spectacular on the way in and at the site. From this CG you are close to three pioneer homestead ranches worth a visit with a little walking. Hiking, fishing and hunting is a big activety here next to sight seeing.

This is fascinating country.
