Indian RV and Campground Buffalo Wyoming off I-90

We had driven across half of Wyoming and crossed the mountains of the Big Horn National Park at 9000', we stopped at 2 PM and were so happy with this place. It was $28 for a tent site with electricity, they had a pool, a laundry, and WIFI. The owner was great with directions and the best way to approach Mt Rushmore, our destination the next day. The town had a family dollar where we purchased containers to organize our gear.
