The Soldier Creek Campground is adjacent to Soldier Creek Wilderness to the south, Ft. Robinson State Park to the east and Forest Service non wilderness to the west and north. The 7,794 acre Soldier Creek Wilderness was used in conjunction with Fort Robinson Military Reservation as a wood reserve, horse & mule pasture.
The campground has 3 sites with picnic table and fire ring, along with at least 3 other camping areas large enough for a horse trailer or RV. There is also a hand pump well providing potable water, 3 vault toilets, garbage cans and a large 15-paddock corral system. Livestock feed is not available and stock water must be hauled to the corral from nearby creeks or hand pump during the fee period.
Campground is open year round. No potable water or garbage services available from Mid-November to early May, so please pack it in and pack it out.
Boots & Saddle Trail is 7.1 miles, accessed from the North Fork Trailhead located at campsite 1 and ties into the Trooper Trail. Trooper Trail Loop is 9.7 miles and is accessed from the Middle and South Fork Trailheads located in the campground. Trail brochures are available at the campground. Call the Pine Ridge Ranger District Office at (308) 432-0300 for more information.
Easy but long trails begin at this campground. Lots of horses on the trails. Very windy campground at night (have a decent tent). Limited facilities with no showers. Clean. Get a map of the area from the ranger station, as this isn’t a very developed park with a lot of trails (hence “wilderness” in the name). Nice place, would return.
