Where to begin- everything about our stay here was wonderful. We called ahead of time to make sure there was a spot for our conversion SUV, and at the time, there was. As it’s first come first serve, we were lucky to arrive at 7pm to find a beautiful spot right next to the river. Dee, one of the owners, told us on the phone that if they don’t answer at the office upon our arrival, we would find them working in the park. So we set out and soon after found Dee. She signed us in and was super sweet and helpful. The natural bridge was gorgeous and we quickly ran up the mini-trail to the top of the bridge to take sunset photos. The surrounding wall of red rock was absolutely beautiful! There were little bunnies and birdies scurrying around the grassy areas. Doug (Dee’s husband) warned us about rattlesnakes, mountain lions, and bob cats, though we didn’t run into any during our short stay.
PROS Beautiful, clean, quiet, and FREE. You can tell that Dee and Doug (the owners) put a lot of love and care into this place. Plenty of clean bathrooms, even a handicap bathroom. Lots of picnic tables scattered throughout, even a volleyball court and a playground. There’s lots of little art pieces strewn throughout the walkways that were fun to look at.
CONS Zero cell service. For both ATNT and Verizon. And no WiFi. As we were only staying one night, this didn’t bother us at all, but perhaps not ideal for a longer stay - unless you’re looking to disconnect entirely, then this is your spot.
SUMMARY This campsite is perfect in so many ways so even though it’s free, please leave a donation.
Ayers Bridge Natural Area is a beautiful spot. If you’re on your way to Devils tower from Colorado it’s the perfect stop to split up the trip.
The campground is quite small though, maximum trailer length is listed at 30 feet. It was pretty tight getting our 25 ft trailer in. The road in is also small with numerous blind curves, best to take it slow.
The campground itself is covered with lush green grass that just invites you to take a load off. The swimming in the river is good as well. All of the sites have a table and grill included. The facilities are immaculate and there are numerous little sculptures and artwork around the campgrounds to find. There is also a neat little campground that our kiddos enjoyed.
YOU CAN STAY HERE FOR 3 NIGHTS FOR FREE!
There are numerous signs that say “No Pets Allowed” however we just kept our dog in the trailer the whole time.
What a relief after a long day on the road with a motorcycle. Going thru Wyoming is partially boring but this campground (owned by the county) is so refreshing. Green and cool after a long days ride.
Nice campsites in the shades of the trees on the grass. Paved area for RVs. Good infrastructure (albeit a bit dated) well maintained. A small creek runs thru it.
Picnic tables and day use area. An area for group gatherings. A beach where even small children can play without risk.
This is an easy hop down from interstate 25 on your trip across Wyoming with a lot of character. The natural bridge is lovely and there are bison. Our campsite was right next to the creek where you can splash and swim. They had some other entertainment options (volleyball, etc.) too. If you’re fishing you could spend a while here. Very clean. FREE but please leave a donation, this is the nicest county-owned park we’ve been to.
Natural Bridge is a must see if near Casper, WY! Has great history over indian folklore and was a safe haven for settlers moving west. There's a great side trail that leads to the top that I highly recommend (where the phone was taken) . Easy to get too, and great camping/ pick nicking.
