What DSVT said - wanted to update that cost is still $10, Natrona County Park so no Sr pass discount. Black Beach is closest off Hwy 220. Loop rd thru CG OK for big rigs when dry. We camped at Alcova Reservoir in a Motorhome.

We were looking for a place to stay in the general area to break up a long drive. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on a weeknight in mid-October in our 25 foot MH. There are 6 CGs at the Alcova Reservoir. We stayed at Black Beach, the first CG on the east side of the reservoir, off County Road 407/Kortes Road. There are 10-12 defined, unnumbered sites on 2 loops. Most are spacious providing privacy and beautiful views of the reservoir. The sites are dirt, surrounded by desert shrubs/bushes. Some are level while others need some leveling. There's not much shade, however, there are picnic shelters at most of the sites. There are trash containers and rest rooms. There's no water. The roads into and around the park are dirt. One section of the road appeared to have rutted deeply after rain/snow, yet was easy to navigate when dry. There's no WiFi. ATT and Verizon cell coverage was good. We had a quiet stay. We camped at Alcova Reservoir in a Motorhome.

Primitive campsites on the East side of Alcova Reservoir is accessed via Co Rd 407; paved, but narrow with 1-lane bridge over river (the Dam road is closed). Black Beach access road isn't gravel or maintained; dry now, but it had been very muddy. Several sites would accommodate our 60', but road and sites aren't switch-backed nor tiered down to lake, so most sites are very unlevel, and more clouds threatened. We are 40' plus dingy, thus used our better judgment. Simple site and road prep would make this primitive CG a premier camp for Natrona County as well as fisherman's paradise. We did not venture the couple of miles further South on 407 to Cottonwood Creek primitive CG. We camped at Alcova Reservoir in a Motorhome.

We stayed here from 7-20 to 7-29. Arrived on Sun @ 1230pm. The spot we were to have was occupied, and they didn't vacate it until 130pm. We still could not get in because somebody had their truck parked in the road and were not there. Finally moved into another spot about 2pm. The next morning a park ranger knocked on our door and told us we were in the wrong site. Told him sorry, about the fiasco the day before, and we were not moving as he should have been here yesterday. Nobody runs this park, it just happens, and on the weekends it is a mess as Alcova Lake is a party lake. I will avoid this park at all costs. We camped at Alcova Reservoir in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in the 10 hook-up part of the county park. They state full service, but only 30 amp and not a trash can in site. Backs up to a trailer park. The area was quiet but no view of the lake. We would not stay here again for that price. The $7 sites are on the lake but very, very steep entrances. We camped at Alcova Reservoir in a Motorhome.

We had a hard time finding our way to and around this park, as the directions in Woodall's were inadequate. As stated in another review, going west, drive to the top of the hill and take a left on to Lakeshore Drive. The map from the grocery store did not indicate where the main campground was, so we pulled down by the lake, and boon docked there. The site was lovely, but we had some trouble leveling, and access by the road was tricky for our 40 foot RV. Still the place is unusually beautiful, and we would surely stay here again. The site is close to Independence Rock, an icon and important stopping place for emigrants on the Oregon Trail. We camped at Alcova Reservoir in a Motorhome.

This is an excellent alternative to the private (tight and expensive) campgrounds in Casper. It's 28 miles SW on Hwy 220 and run by Natrona County. There are some full hookup sites (though not on the lake and crowded), but for a day or two of dry camping, there are many sites where you pull up right by this incredible lake, with a fire ring and shaded picnic table - for just $7/night. We camped on the west side of the lake - go beyond town of Alcova about 1 3/4 miles and take Lakeside Drive. Wonderful map available at the CR407 turnoff (Alcova) at Sloanes General Store. They have all the park info and were a great help. The views and privacy were absolutely wonderful - we wished we had more time to spend there. We camped at Alcova Reservoir in a Motorhome.
