The Bighorn National Forest offers a wide array of sites for camping. Many sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis and some may be reserved.
Campground and cabin reservations may be made through Recreation.gov at 1-877-444-6777 or online at http://www.recreation.gov. Reservations are recommended for holiday weekends.
Located in north-central Wyoming, the Bighorn Mountains are a sister range of the Rocky Mountains. Conveniently located halfway between Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstone National Park, the Bighorns are a great vacation destination in themselves.
No region in Wyoming is provided with a more diverse landscape - from grasslands to alpine meadows, clear lakes to glacially-carved valleys and rolling hills to sheer mountain cliffs.
Visit the Bighorn National Forest and enjoy the multiple reservoirs, 30 campgrounds, four group campgrounds, three scenic byways, 10 picnic areas, eight lodges, many miles of streams, 189,000 acres of Wilderness, 1,200 miles of trails, and much more.
Wr saw a moose by the lake one morning. Open parking spots. Great host!
Stayed in the Sheep Mountain Fire Tower. With gale force winds blowing the shutters off…and a steep walk to the vault toilet…we bailed early. However, the Bighorns are AMAZING! Saw my 1st moose! Take tent heater for the tower unless going in middle of summer.
beautiful scenery, endless mountain views, miles and miles of dirt roads to explore and the best fishing.
