Fun times

Beautiful scenery. Lots of room to hike

South Fork, WY

Stayed there for multiple nights and never got bored. Lots in the area to do like hiking, backpacking and rock climbing! If your in the area don't hesitate to stay there a night!

South Fork Camp

Stayed in the camper here to see Bighorn National Park. The sites were all very wooded, some are near a river, rustic setup, really lovely, though not private because of plants and site layouts. And WOW the wildlife (but no bighorn sheep!).

Nice little camp ground

This is a great little camp ground with both RV camping and designated Tent Camping areas. the Campground is well maintained and with a creek running through. There a hike trails near by and easy access to fishing at Tie Hack reservoir. We try to go camp here at least once a year It is close to the main road, but insulated enough that you don't really hear the road noise. This fills up quick so reservations are a good idea.

First to Review
South fork

This campground is good for a walk in site. This is at a higher elevation so wouldn't bring people with respiratory problems. There is restrooms and drinking water but would purify the water because I don't know if it is really that clean. The night is really cold so I would build a big fire with extra fire wood on the side
