The roads are horrible

First off, its not a bad campground but if you travel through Bridger MT, then you have to travel several miles through private land that is very rutted out. If it rained you have to be in a jacked up 4x4 to get through. I included this in my photos. Even on my dual sport, the ruts sucken me in and I almost wiped out a few times. Once in the forest service land there is miles and miles of amazing roads and OHV paths everywhere and for miles. I even seen roadside campfires. The campground itself leaves something to be desired, however the surrounding landscape is only to be awed!

Wildlife galore! FREE

We loved loved loved this campground! It is just an open circle and you can pitch a tent anywhere or car camp around it. You don’t usually find FREE camping in the middle of a National Park so this was awesome. Bison walked right through the campground, prairie dogs surrounded it and coyotes howled in the (not so) distance. There are covered picnic tables which are nice in the heat of the summer.
