The review below, from Get’n Back, is spot on. This is wan amazing dry camping area. There are four designated camping areas, along this one road. The first and the last are the easiest to get big rigs in, but the other two will work with planning and slow maneuvers. We did not get cell service with Att or Verizon, but it may be possible with a booster. We just came for the day, to check it out, while in the area. We would definitely camp here!

The West Oxbow Camping area is just 1 of 4 public access camping areas in a 1.5 mile stretch along Sand Creek. Located in the canyon, the views of the high canyon walls are spectacular.

I'm told, by one of the Wyoming Fish & Wildlife workers I met when I arrived here yesterday, that this a Blue Ribbon fishery, and I don't doubt it. I have to run out and pick up my fishing license yet, and I'll be trying it out for myself(non-resident WY license is $14 for a single day license, or $96 for the annual license). The West Oxbows are just 2 miles downstream from Ranch A, where in the 1960s the US fish and Wildlife Service built their fish genetics research lab and hatchery. Today, the land and facility is owned and managed by the Wyoming State Fish &Wildlife Service.

There are no amenities here, other than the outhouses, but it is a beautiful area with awesome views, and great fishing. There is enough room for 3 or 4 large rigs to set up in just this one spot, but like I said earlier, there are 3 other spots, and you pass them on the way in to here. Also, for fellow tenters like myself, if by some random and unlikely chance all the spots in these 4 areas are filled with RVs don't worry. There are plenty of well established tent sites located all along the creek between these 4 spots.

The location is easily accessible and is just across the South Dakota state line. To the West Oxbow Camping area from Interstate 90W, just take a left off the ramp into Sand Creek Rd and its only 3.3 miles. (You pass the other 3 spots on the way to this one.)
