Tent Sites and Dispersed Camping
A climbers campground on the west side of the Big Horn Mountains, this was a very useful find when a reservation didn’t pan out up canyon. There are a lot of pluses and minuses to this campground. On the minus side is the fact that it is right on the road with no buffer, sites are very small, there is no privacy between sites, and you likely won’t have cell service. But on the plus side is that it is$5 a night with$2 showers, the bathhouse is pretty clean, there is an outdoor kitchen with sink, two fridges for camper use(mark your items!), Tensleep Creek drowns out most of the highway noise(especially if you get a site on the creek), there is a really nice large pavilion with lots of picnic tables and lots of beta for climbers, there is free wifi in the pavilion, and you aren’t too far from town to get supplies or go to the brewery or from heading up the mountain to the Big Horns.
Vote with your dollars: say no to this place because the owner, Louie Anderson, has chipped holds, drilled pockets, and manufactured rock climbing routes in a way that violates widely the accepted ethics of the climbing community, including the Access Fund, and the Bighorn Climbers' Coalition. One might even argue he created new routes in order to bring more climbers to this business. The storm he's stirred up has caused a moratorium on all new routes and outrage in the climbing community. See rockandice.com/climbing-… So please find another place to stay or your dollars will help him chip and manufacture more routes, permanently damaging the natural beauty of Ten Sleep.
Stopped by on our way through town & a couple days of climbing. Arrived late & left early, but what I saw was nice, clean campground. Convenient location.
Clean restrooms/paid, clean showers. Nice setting with separate sites or cabins. Covered community area.
