Small park with friendly owners. 3 miles from the Fort Laramie National Historic Site. It is next to the railroad tracks but I must be lucky since there hasn't been a train this afternoon. The tracks are usually heavy with coal trains from the open pit mines in Wyoming. Site was dead level. Easy setup. 50amp worked fine. There are couple of what look like full time rigs and the houses surround the sites. No big deal unless you have a hang up attitude. The town has one restaurant but most other spots including a gas station that was open a couple of years ago are now closed. Check out the Lira Mexican restaurant in Lingle, WY which is 10 minutes to the east.

Great park. The parks folks are helpful. Most sites are first come and they will let you go find a spot before you pay. Since I work from the road I needed Verizon service. The only area that had coverage was on the northwest side as you come into the park and the water/electric sites. 2 bars Verizon LTE but I needed my Wilson booster to get that level of coverage.

This could be a great park. Good location, picturesque, friendly staff, somewhat tight spots but that is the norm. I'd rate it higher except for the lack of cable channels and very poor Wi-Fi. And the Wi-Fi other than 1 hour is not free. TengoInternet with the usual charges. Verizon MiFi worked fine.

A basic KOA. Sites are on grass with gravel tire tracks. Need blocks to get level. Wi-Fi was poor. Verizon was fine. Lyman is close to the fort at Fort Bridger state park. Try "The Cafe" at the truck stop on I-80. Looks like a dive but the food is very good and reasonably priced.

Interesting park. Sites are on grass, huge amount of space. Bit uneven so needed blocks to get level. Good Verizon, so-so Wi-Fi. Best part is being next door to the state park of the same name.

Nice KOA. Check in was straight forward. Sites have a reasonable amount of space between them. Number of sites have shade trees. Good looking swimming pool and hiking trails behind the park.

Nice park in an interesting small town. Back of the park has great sites with lots of shade trees. I booked at the last minute and had a spot next to Hughes Rd. Wasn't a problem. Very quiet with little traffic noise during the night. One of the most unique set of RV park buildings I have ever seen. Management was friendly and efficient.

There are multiple campgrounds around Carter Lake. I stayed 1 night at the Eagle CG at the north end but had zero Verizon service even with a booster. Sites in Eagle can be challenging to get your rig level. I need 3 levels of leveling blocks and still wasn't quite level. Moved to the South Shore CG. I found a few sites where I could get a couple of bars of LTE on Verizon but only with a Wilson 4G booster. S27 and the adjacent sites had a signal. Park was busy on Sunday but pretty quite for the next 3 days.

Nice county-run park. Sites are dirt but level with a bit of grass between them. Water and electricity only. Water and electicity is $25, water OR electric only is $20, no hookups $15. Self pay station if the office is closed takes Visa, MC, or cash. Might be a bit noisy if there are events going on but on this Friday night it was peaceful.

Great park with lots of things to do. Wide streets and good spacing between sites. Internet solid but slow. New rules. All activities are free and included: boats, fishing, miniature golf. Only strange rule was a charge per visitor if someone wants to visit you in the park. Probably doesn't happen that often and may be due to it being a college town. Strange none the less.

Spruce Lake is a fine park. Like lots of businesses along the Big Thompson river were damaged in the Colorado floods last year. But they are up and operational with some major repairs to the office and newly graded roads. Great spot for visiting Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. Sites are of good size. Mix of 30 and 50 amp locations. Only downside was poor WiFi but that isn't unusual these days.

As other posters have stated essentially a very large parking lot with hookups. Save your money on the premium sites. Seriously not worth the extra money but I was too lazy to move. Staff is friendly and knowledgable. Internet was slow and intermittent even with a booster. Couldn't log in at all on the first day due to issues at Tengo. Best part of this is the convenience. I was at the NAB trade show. Quick drive and I was at the show. Much longer commute from other spots. Same if you want to hangout on the strip.

Outstanding find. West of town just off I-40. Little to no highway noise. Office staff, the owner made the check in easy. Spaces are nice and level, wide enough if you have sliders, park was spotlessly clean. Cable was a bit funky to get setup but there was an offer to help from the office if you needed it. Everything was perfect.

Interesting mix of permanent and semi-permanent mixed in with the overnight and short term folks. Level gravel sites. Restrooms were clean. Friendly staff and easy to check in.
