Wind River Canyon views

Pros and Cons to the location of this campground: great views of the Wind River and the tunnels, but right next to the highway and not much privacy between sites due to lack of underbrush. The half of the campground closer to the tunnels is walk up only and the lower half of the campground is reservation only. The host was very nice and happy to chat as long as you wanted, which might account for the lack of mowing. While there wasn’t much privacy between sites, they were at least well shaded by the trees (which were also good trees to hang a hammock in). The vault toilets were clean and sites all had picnic tables, fire pits and grills. There are no hookups for RV’s, but there is water available at the spigots scattered around the campground. Warning: it is loud in the day and into the late evening with trucks coming down and going up the canyon. However, if you get a site next to the river it quiets things down a bit.

Solid stop over to Grand Tetons from Colorado

Lot going on at this campground. Lake view a an extremely long train going through a mountain. Wild!

Several areas to choose from

Lots of different options to choose from on lake or on river…my favorite is the one right next to the tunnels. Plenty of wildlife to watch come down to river in the evening or early mornings. Kids love the train that runs thru the canyon.

Sweet spot!

Beautiful views, big old train going through the tunnel of a mountain. Wild little spot.

Poison Creek Campground

The stark beauty of this primitive camping area was beyond words. At the end of a long dirt road, you will find this diamond in the rough. Featuring just a handful of small sites, the remoteness of this area is well-suited for outdoor adventure enthusiasts. Enjoy your morning coffee with a view of the water, mountain range in the distance and curious herd of pronghorn, investigating your presence from a nearby ridge. Perfect campground for star-gazing and just getting away from it all.

-Bring your own water

+Nice vault toilet (and a great view from the outhouse door!)

Several sites in this state park

There are multiple sites throughout the park. All have water, tables and BBQ's or pits. Each one also has a playground for the kiddies. I prefer the camps along the river, the fly fishing in the tail waters of Boysen Reservoir is spectacular! There are more trees and there are launch sites. We wade fished, but if you float you need a permit to float through Wind River Indian Reservation.
The lake is huge and has excellent fishing I'm told. Sites are self pay and I've included a photo of the pricing. Enjoy!

Boysen State Park

This is a huge lake with parks and cliffs all around it. The main thing to do is boat and fish, I don’t think there were any trails. The camping was right along the water and pretty, I think there are multiple campground options. Facilities were modern and there was a playground. Pretty area, worth a drive around the lake too.

Great clear lake

This is an awesome lake that is easy to get to. The campground are below the damn overlooking the wind river. They have vault toilets, playgrounds, great views and are all large enough to accommodate rvs. The lake itself is accessed about a half mile down the road. Clear water and a beautiful backdrop make this a great lake for skiing or just dropping anchor and chilling. Lots of islands to play on in this lake.
