Camping Top 5


Boysen State Park

If you love water sports, Boysen State Park is your next camp spot. There are tons of places to camp in Boysen State Park. Residents pay $10 a night and non-residents pay $17 a night. The Lower and Upper Wind River Campgrounds have shade trees, grass and interesting geological features. Look for big horn sheep often spotted in this area. There are numerous sites and some can be reserved in advance. Brannon and Tamarask campgrounds are at the north end of the reservoir near a boat launching area. There is a protected bay for tying up boats, a sandy beach, trees and picnic shelters. Tough Creek Campground is on a peninsula with a boat launching area and close access to the lake. Loop 1 and Loop 2 are on the west side of the reservoir and offer a limited number of sites, a boat launch and easy access to the lake.

Togwotee Pass

I you are headed to or from Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks choose to camp on Togwotee Pass. Whether you are coming or going from Jackson and the national parks, staying on Togwotee Pass provides a perfect break in your driving and a little bit of breathing room and a slower pace you won’t find when you cross out of Wind River country. Brooks Lake has its own campground or you can continue about half a mile to the Pinnacles campground. There you can settle into a site surrounded by trees, in the woods, on a creek or near the lake. The Falls Campground provides easy access to Brooks Lake Falls. Recently remodeled the campground has 54 sites surrounded by mature pine and fir trees. There are also bear boxes. Proper food storage is required when camping on Togwotee Pass.

Dubois, Lander, Riverton

If you are looking to stay in town there are several campgrounds, in or on the outskirts of Lander, Riverton and Dubois. These feature hook ups, RV spots, pull thrus and tent sites. They also offer amenities like hot showers, restrooms, laundry, dump stations, stores and even wireless internet. Plus you are already in town, so you can explore the shops, restaurants and sites. You can also camp for free in Lander’s city park. See our list of RV parks and campgrounds to pick the one that fits your needs.

Sinks, The Loop, Double Cabin

If you want to camp in the woods, Sinks Canyon, the Loop Road and Double Cabin Campground will take you to the great outdoors. Only a few minutes from town you can set up camp in Sinks Canyon State Park. Here you can listen to the river, hike on nearby kid-friendly trails and easily get back into town if you’ve forgotten anything. There are 24 sites at the Popo Agie campground, which are not conducive to large RVs and four spots at Sawmill. Its first-come-first-served basis and costs $6 for Wyoming residents and $11 for out-of-state visitors per night. If you head up the switchback road, known as the Loop Road, at the end of the canyon, it will take you to several public campgrounds. Louis Lake, Worthen Meadows and Fiddlers Lake provide camp sites, without hook-ups, but near water for fishing and boating. These spots provide fresh mountain air and plenty of space to play and explore. If you are staying in the Dubois area, the Double Cabin Campground offers 14 spots on the border of the Washakie Wilderness. Two trails leave the campground and head deep into the wilderness. One trail leads to southern end of the wilderness boundary while the Frontier Creek Trail leads to a petrified forest. Water is available. The maximum spur is 32 feet and this area is not accessible for those with mobility impairments.

BLM & Forest Service land

If you want off the beaten path, dispersed camping on BLM or Forest Service land is available. With thousands of acres of prairie managed by the Bureau of Land Management and thousands of acres of woods under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Forest Service, Wind River country is a great place to try dispersed camping, meaning setting up in an unmarked area lacking amenities like bathrooms and picnic tables. These public lands provide free camping. You can set up anywhere, as long as it isn’t marked as a no-camping spot. It’s a great way to truly rough it and create the adventure you want. Be sure to pack up all your garbage and leave the area like you found it. For recommendations on where to go, check with local agencies.

Introduce Yourself to the Outdoors

Some of my favorite memories, both as a child, and as an adult, involve camping. As a kid, camping provided an incredible adventure – new places to explore and food cooked over a fire. Looking back, I understand that car camping is the perfect way to introduce kids to the outdoors. You can look up at the stars, climb on boulders and roast marshmallows, all while keeping the convenience of a car stuffed with items for every contingency – weather, bugs, illness and entertainment in case of meltdowns.  As an adult the appeal is much the same, dinners can be almost gourmet with over-packed coolers and big camp stoves. Layers can be easily shed and stored with the weather, and there’s always an easy escape with the car. I’ll admit it. I’ve been in a constant torrential downpour and instead of struggling to shield the stove, my party and I opted to drive to a nearby town and eat pizza.

No matter what stage of life you are in, or what kind of camping you are looking for, Wind River Country has it.

Full service commercial campgrounds are located in Dubois, Lander, Riverton and Shoshoni complete with showers, hookups, cabins, tent sites and shade.  Some even have a river out back, so don’t forget your fishing pole.  All of the campground hosts will give you some good old western hospitality.
