Our campsite was hands down the best out of all 11. It had everything we needed: plenty of shade, the creek rolling by right next to us. I loved falling asleep to the sound of the water. There is one vault toilet but you will need to bring in your own water. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit. There were several dispersed camp sites just off the side of the road before you get to the campground. They were also alongside the creek but didn’t have much privacy there.
We didn’t get a chance to hike the Rainbow Trail, but we did go over Hayden Pass (we started at the other end in Villa Grove) which was a lot of fun but you must have a 4x4 with good clearance. We will definitely be back!
Wowsa! Those rock formations are stunning! The campground was great - plenty of campsites and lovely trails to hike. We were even visited by a moose and her calf on our first night! The ranger is very friendly and helpful. The water is shut off for 2019 so be prepared to bring your own. Laramie is just a quick jaunt down I-80 which is nice if you forget anything. My only complaint was the highway noise. It was such a bummer to hear semi trucks and car engines and even the train rather than the peace and quiet you normally experience while camping. Other than that…we loved it!
