Moose!! Roadside camping in moose turf

Every time we passed this campground we saw empty sites. This came in handy on this holiday weekend. We grabbed a site and before we even filled out the forms the rest were taken. It’s nice to have found a campsite at late notice on a holiday but they did fill up. 

The campground has a couple loops. We ended up right next to the road. Consistent traffic became background noise if we didn’t pay attention to it. We would have preferred a quieter setting but at least we found a campsite. The campers in the other loop seemed louder and more active. One site had a bunch of dogs and a couple of sites had large groups. Our loop was quiet and restful.

The hosts keep the place clean. With all the rain we’ve had, the trail that links up to Sibley Lake trail was too muddy to hike. We walked up the hill away from the road where logging is being done. It led to a series of trails that seemed to lead to more logging. 

The highlight was finding a mother and baby moose grazing right through our campsite. The host told us that a moose killed a dog recently. I’m keeping a closer eye on ours now. 

We loved the moose coming into camp here! This is an ok campground but the closeness to the road wasn’t the best.

Nice Campground

We needed a camp site with full hookups for one night. This KOA clean & the people running it do a nice job. Pull through sites. Nice and level.

Beautiful campsite in canyon near creek

Beautiful campground in canyon of the Big Horns and near a creek. Great trout fishing there per the host. Campsites are right on the creek #4 is RIGHT on the creek and you can just walk down to it to fish. Cleanest vault toilets we have ever seen. All first come first serve $16

Beautiful Bighorn Mountains

Small but beautiful campground located in the Bighorn Mtns of Wyoming. Off hwy 16 a little ways this campground is big on scenery if not amenities. Although tree covered they are rocky and small. However the equestrian area at the back has some beautiful spots.

Great stay!

Nice little campground, tucked just outside of town. Minutes from stores and restaurants. This KOA had a pool, play ground, laundry room, rec room plus many more. Really enjoyed our stay while passing through. Town does have an old siren that goes off at 9pm but it’s not very loud and doesn’t last very long.

One of my favorite High Country Campgrounds

We took a motorcycle trip from Missouri to Yellowstone and stopped here for 3 nights on the way. This is an excellent Primitive campground with unbelievable views.

Although it has minimal services, it makes up for it with the views. Make sure to wake up early and walk to the lake, there was moose hanging out when we were there. Even the drive into the campground is nice. The high elevation makes the evenings cool.

I would go back here in a heartbeat, if I’m ever in the area, I will plan to stay here.

Pros: Very primitive feel, nice toilets for being so far out, shady campsites with plenty of room,

Cons: The long 7 mile gravel road on cruiser motorcycles is a pain.

Beautiful area

This was our first trip to this campground. My friend reserved the site for us so we did not know anything about this area. 

PROS -Very small campground- 

Cleanest & best smelling toilets I have have ever encountered.

Lake at Campground

Great Hiking area's

Lake is clean & beautiful (Go for Kayaking & Fly Fishing)

Moose in area 

CONS:

7 miles of Gravel road to get to Campsite -Very bumpy ride for 3500 ton Truck

Campsites are small. We have a 27 Foot bumper pull -No problem but some sites smaller & uneven. (Research your site)

No Camp Host on Site-Have to drive about 4 miles to buy wood bundles.

Dry Camp-No Electric 

Dump Station about 13 miles away

Clean, well managed and close to lots of activities

We are hikers and don't have ATV's, so hiking trails are a must for us.  Thankfully, the Tie Flume campground is near abundant hiking and ATV trails.  We found trails way off the beaten path and enjoyed three full days of hiking. 

Be aware that you will have to arrive with water in your tank if you are in an RV.  The hand pumps at the campground do not allow you to attach a hose.  The water was wonderful though.

There is NO cell service within 18 miles of the campground.  Additionally, there is no grocery store or even stocked service station within miles as well.  Come prepared with what you need for your entire stay.

The Burgess Junction dump station is great and you can fill water tanks there on your way in and dump on your way out.

Spacious and quiet- great!

Sites are very spaced out, so it is very private and quiet. Lots of wildlife and pine forest.

Boat launch and hiking/ski trails out of camp

Head into the northern side of the Bighorns and you come across Sibley Lake. The campground has electric and non-electric loops. Sites are large and you find yourself under tall trees. The camp host keeps the vault toilets and campground clean. Drive through the campground, or take the road that skirts it to the left, and you find picnic areas. Launch your boat to catch some fish or just enjoy the day. We saw families having picnic celebrations on this holiday weekend. There is also a hiking/skiing route that has several loops. Go around Sibley or extend your adventure further. There is a donation box for trail upkeep. 

This is a nice campground that is closest to the towns in the east.
