Awesome host

Nice little campground,  friendly host, great ATV roads, hiking.

Primitive Camping on the N Platte River

Sanger Access Area is a launching/porting spot for Drift Fishing the North Platte River. There are several nice tent site right on the river with lots of Cottonwood trees for shade. There is a his/hers vaulted toilets but no other amenities. Not suitable for RVs or large trailers as the road in is narrow and can get nasty in bad weather. Great river location with prime fishing. The site is 4 miles in off HWY 130 on Picks Bridge Road.

Nice place to visit

We like this campground ⛺️ but very cold can’t sleep much

Easy to access, Beautiful lake

I arrived late to this campground but just in time for sunset. The tent sites on are the lake which is beautiful but arriving at sunset let me meet all the bugs of the evening. They weren't mosquitoes, I didn't get but they were out by the hundreds. The RVs are close to the tents so it was bit noisy. no tent pads

Vault toilets and playground at the campground

picnic table on site.

Stargazing, amazing

Curt Gowdy State Park, Cheyenne Wyoming 

Located between Laramie and Cheyenne, about 25 miles to each. We stayed at the Tumbleweed Campground. If you enjoy stargazing,  you'll be amazed. There are no campground lights to interfere and campers keep lights to a minimum. We had a cloudless clear sky to enjoy the heavens. One of the most awesome night skys I've seen. Would love to be here for meteor showers! 

This area has electric and water. The sites are gravel and mostly level. Each site is totally separate with great views of the reservoir. There's a nice picnic table and firepit. Vault toilets. Really nice tiled showers (takes quarters) and flush toilets are available 24/7 at the Visitor Center up the road. Boondock and tent campgrounds also available.  Staff super friendly. Camp store has the basics. Nice mountain bike and hiking trails. Popular intermediate hike to waterfall, 4 miles rounddtrip. Fishing, picnicking, kids play areas.

Hidden Gem

Small campground by creek. Lots of room between sites. Very pretty location. -The Free Birds RV- https://livefreebirds.com IG: thefreebirdsrv

Quiet and easy to access

We were driving out to Oregon and decided to stay the night here since it’s not too far off the interstate. The site was fairly secluded and interstate noise was not bad for how close it was. We plan to go again and try some biking and hiking in the area. $5 with national park pass ($10 without). No water.

Nice little get away

Just north of Saratoga, Wy. Is Saratoga lake, and the aptly named Saratoga Lake Campground. It has tiers of camp sites mostly set up for RV'S but a few towards the water which tent campers will be comfortable. It has vault toilets on either side of it and a playground near the main entrance. A boat ramp is also by the entrance. There is not much privacy and vitually zero shade, but the views of the sparse landscape and the abundance of birds and other wildlife life mitigates that. Town is not far away, along with the natural hot springs the town is famous for. Fishing is in abundance from not only the lake but the Platte River known for its blue ribbon trout waters. All in all the positive charms outweigh the slight drawbacks of this spot. Enjoy.

Amazing campground with amazing and unique pink granite mountains

The dyrt has some old info on their overview page, there are no reservations - it is first come first serve, there is no water hookups, but there are several water spickets that are available when the water quality meets standards for drinking water - sometimes water is not available (check USDA Vadauwoo Camprround site for up to date info).

The sites are a combination of back-in, pull-offs, and walk into tent camping sites. All afford amazing views of the unique rock formations and easy access to hiking, climbing and repelling sites within the area.
