This so called RV park is attached to a native American casino. It could be made into a decent RV park with little effort. The area where the sites are is a level gravel area. There are pedestals with the electric hookups, and they are fine. Except for a 55 gallon drum (1) trash can, and pedestals the place is barren. No water, no sewer, no shower house. There is an adjacent casino and hotel. You can use the bathrooms in the casino, but there are no other services for RV guests. The casino and its facilities are not the greatest. Another camper arrived and asked how to access the locked electrical box. When he found out we had to pay, he commented that it used to be free. There is a real campground down the street which is only a little more that has facilities. We had a vehicle emergency which forced us to use this place. Not again. - Scot671

We would use again only no other option was available. Park grounds really need a good clean-up and a little water and grass wouldn't hurt. Very hard to find. Garmin was useless. Had to call for directions. Some road noise and lots of barking dogs in the surrounding neighborhood. - BruceB

Mostly long pull through sites with good water quality and good electric. I don't see any playground but they do have a meeting room. Showers cost $. Sites are level, gravel, with a picnic table. No cable and very few OTA TV stations. Verizon was good. Sits in a residential area so I turned left out of the park to walk down to the baseball fields (watch out for sand spurs) and also the recycling center had a road next to it for walking. - Kerch Family

We just stayed one night when passing through. As previously reviewed it is "a little rough around the edges" but the sites were not as close together as described - a lot of KOA's are tighter. But because they alternate the directions of pull-through sights your picnic tables are on the same side so it might seem closer. The WiFi is surprisingly good - probably the best I have used. Some long term residents but not a problem except that of course they get up early to go to work and because the roads are gravel it is a little noisy. The nearby road gets noisy about 7 am as people use E Park Ave to get to work. All the utilities worked fine and the restrooms were clean and well kept. The showers are each private rooms but have a cost. The office/store is kinda cluttered. The owner/manager is very nice and welcoming. No cable or air TV but we got DirecTV satellite no problem. Verizon 4G also good. Sept. 2018 Road construction. Can't turn left onto E Park. From the East on Hwy 26/789 you will have to find a way to get turned around or turn right on some other street passed Park and then back to Park. Maybe best to call the park ahead for directions as they open and close local streets. - NiMo

Kind of a sad little place and very over-priced. As others said, somewhat run down and needs a lot of work, though bathrooms have been renovated. Right next to the highway, so noisy up front. Lots of tents and residents in older rigs. Watch out for high voltage and poor water quality (as tested). Verizon cell and MiFi worked fine; no mention of Wi-Fi by office. Most sites in shade, not level. Sat TV instead of cable, not many channels. - Annie's Song

Very friendly owner, well informed about local information and accommodating in order to get a larger rig in place (allows you to drive on grass or park vehicle in another site if you don't fit in the pull through available). The only reason we gave an 8 for rating is the site was not big rig friendly. This is not a resort so don't expect a lot. The owner is trying but the CG needs a lot of TLC. WiFi worked great. - SubSailor

Expensive but it's the only thing in the area unless you boondock at the Walmart right down the road. OK for a one night pull off the road. We were early in the year and it just needs freshening up. Nothing impressive but adequate. Owner very nice. - westie0506

Sites are gravel with grass between sites, adequate space between sites with nice picnic table. Campground is quiet. Electric, sewer and water were as should be. Wifi was excellent. - Timeking

This park caters mostly to full-time residents, with a a dozen sites or so for folks staying in the area for a few days. The rate we paid was for a month's stay; daily rates are higher, as you might expect. Electricity is extra, and we will also get an electric bill some time in the future. The sites are level and there is adequate space between the rigs, and the sites are shaded by trees. We had to adjust our position a bit in order to get satellite TV. The management was friendly, and was helpful in being sure we got our mail and packages from Fed-X. Washing of cars and rigs is allowed. We enjoyed our stay, and would stay here again. - hoppytoad

Poorly maintained park. The laundry room had 3 washers, 2 not working, 2 dryers, both not working, and a clothes lines outside for drying. The restrooms and showers were just nasty. It's located in town with no fencing around the park. An overnighter enroute maybe? - zookep9

Just an over-priced gravel parking lot with hookups. Right on the street. In fact, several truck-tractors pulled in and parked directly in front of us for the night. I had to move from the original site they put me in due to a low-hanging tree. I would have done better to be in a rest area or a Walmart parking lot. I must say the cabins and lodge look pretty nice and there's an awesome view of a valley with a river running through it on the back side of the lodge, but as far as an RV park is concerned, it doesn't get much worse. Oh yeah, there's one washer and one dryer and you have to pay for the shower. Lander is a nice town to visit though. - Outlaws in the wind

Nice park, friendly service. Sites are close together, but ours was sufficient for trailer and tow vehicle, so didn't have to unhook. - Wayne B41

Sort of tight but not bad. The water, sewer and power were in the back of the site a stretch, if you want to leave your toad connected. No real pet area. If you use the vacant land next to the campground "watch your step"! - piclif

Lander, Wyoming is well worth visit, it's an attractive town with an excellent frontier museum and plenty of decent places to shop and eat. However, when it comes to RV campgrounds, there's not much to choose from. Sleeping Bear RV Park remains our first choice when visiting the area, but its narrow and relatively short RV spaces translate into a lack of physical privacy. We found that our neighbors were way to close to enjoy sitting outside. In addition, our pull-thru site was barely long enough for our 30ft trailer and pickup - hence the need to park the truck at a 45 degree angle in front of our trailer. Yes, we may return in the future, but only because Lander lacks other options. - Kona Boy

The park has closed.
I called to make reservations and the message said they had retired and the park is closed. - sfrantz

This is a very nice small park, well taken care of. Large level gravel pads with manicured grass at each site. Lander is a small town with lots to see and do. Highly recommended. Better make reservations well in advance, if possible. - User3654

Nice little park. Very clean and well kept. Each site has a picnic table. Lovely area overlooking a golf course. - phyllen

If you are looking for the Pickle Ball courts, keep driving. When we saw the price we weren't expecting much. But it was fine for what we needed and the location was where we needed it. Utilities worked fine. There are a few who live there long term. But the thing that I will always remember about the place is the wonderful lady who owns it. She is so kind and friendly - without being interfering (which would be easy when you are basically the only guest and are staying at her house). She found out I had a migraine headache and because she is in to nutrition and natural healing, she so kindly brought over a book with a section about migraines and the role different foods and minerals played. If you knew her age and saw her working every day you wouldn't question she is living life right. Is it the best place we ever stayed certainly not. But would I go back and will I remember her? Absolutely. - 2BlackSheep

Might have been nice awhile back but now only electric, water and sewer. Short roads have huge potholes...washrooms and showers in the main building are closed..."cafe" and office are so grungy you're afraid to touch anything. Owner told us a previous camper had mowed the tall grass in the few usable sites so the could be rented. PPA rate only given for 3 nights so paid full rate of $25 for 2 nights plus tax. Left wondering how this place exists! - loneranger

An older ex-KOA park in need of some upkeep. Interior roads a little rough in spots, site did require a single board under some tires, water pressure and electric were good, very convenient only 1/4 mile off highway. The best selling point is the woman who greets you - very friendly and nice and maybe if you're lucky she'll wave goodbye as you leave like she did to me. I would stay again if passing thru. - Critter

Roads: Gravel and turns are a bit tight and you might have to do a lap or two to get the right angle to get into your site. Site was on the end of the back row away from the office, it was a bit narrow and just long enough for the toad and coach. Road noise is an issue during the day but not so much at night. Showers: Only 1 men and 1 women showers. Lines were an issue. The show was large and handicapped accessible with good hot water and low to medium pressure. Bathroom and showers were spotless. Washer and drier were $7/ load. We stayed here due to a storm that was brewing where we wanted to go. This place doesn't have much to offer except location. We might stay here again but I'd check out the other places in town before we stayed again. - pumper9x9

Stayed here based on high rating from other reviewers. I do not share their opinion. Sites are about 50 feet from the highway, so there is a lot of daytime road noise and enough nighttime road noise to wake me, which isn't easy. Tight turn on the interior road once you leave the office to drive to your site. VERY narrow sites that are short and packed close together. No guidance on how far forward or back the front of the coach should be to allow for uniform spacing to park toads or tow vehicles. Some are parked in front, some in back. Had to move my truck twice to allow others easier access in or out of a neighboring site. Sewer connection is in the middle of the site, so you may have your neighbor's sewer hose about 2 feet from the bottom of your stairs. Pathetic fenced dog run, about 9' x 30', on an incline the entire length, with plenty of weeds and dog crap on the ground. The rear fence of the run is the park's barbed wire perimeter fence and the front fence is a mess of chain link that looks recycled. They have 2 stacked washer/dryer units. $7 to wash and dry one load of laundry. Park's wifi at our site was useless. Even in the laundry room the wifi was iffy. With bandwidth and hardware being so cheap, there is no reason for poor wifi. Doubt I will be in this area again, but if I was, I would not stay here. The Maverick is on a quiet side street in town and about $10 a night less. At least in town cell service and mifi should work. - TH travelers

The park itself is nicely kept up. I call it "the little park with the big heart". The bathrooms are spotless and that's very important for an RV park. It is off a highway, as I have discovered most park are. So, yes there is a little highway noise. I learned a long time ago that running a fan in the bedroom at night covers outside noise that disturbs my sleep so highway noise or a nearby train never bother me...no train near this park though! Park does a nightly campfire (if not too windy). The park is gravel. It rained while we were there and the grounds drained rather quickly. We were not in a muddy mess that I have seen at other gravel rv parks where you have mud sprayed the entire length of your truck and fifth wheel as you pull through the lot. - Onourwaytonewadventures

Great State Park Campground off the beaten path in Lander, WY. Sites have no hook ups, but most back up to the Sinks River. There are not very many sites, and it is first come, first served. Payment is made in an envelope at a pay station. We have a 25' Motorhome, not sure if anything much bigger would fit. There is an awesome trail down to a Visitor Center that explains how the Sinks/Rise of the River works. There is also a nice pond at the "Rise" where there are 100+ huge trout (no fishing allowed, but real nice to watch). Trail is only 1.5 miles, but has a lot of elevation change. There is also a real neat swinging bridge that crosses the river near the campground. - Davishouse2

This was my first experience dry camping, which I was a little apprehensive about. After seeing the gorgeous scenery and private and secluded sites, I knew that I had nothing to worry about!
There are two separate camping areas within the state park. We camped at the second one, which was past the visitor and information center. The first cg was very small with just a few sites. Those sites ran parallel along the interior roads.
We camped here two nights on our way north to the Grand Tetons, then Yellowstone and finally the Canadian Rockies. My husband and I both agreed we should have stayed longer, we loved it that much! The campground is quite small, and most sites can accommodate just tents or small rvs. Thankfully we found one of the few spots that would work for our 32 foot long class A. After backing in, there still was plenty of room to park my car in front of our rig. No hook ups, but there is fresh water from a hand pump.
Where to start? Well, as I said, the views of the mountains and canyon are gorgeous! A rapidly moving river runs thru the campground, you can hear the sound of running water thru out the park, which I just loved. We enjoyed the great hiking trails. (The swinging bridge to reach them was a bit unnerving to me!)
Super quiet, mostly tenters when we were here. They do allow you to run a generator, which we did when we needed to make morning coffee, use the microwave, etc. Fresh water is available, no flush toilets though. The vault toilets were pretty nasty, tons of flies.
Super quiet and nice and dark at night! I slept better than I had in ages! Park rangers are very friendly and helpful. My husband asked if there was a dump station in the area, and a ranger told us of one in town, which was free to boot!
We would love to return here some day if ever in the area again, and would stay even longer! - fly girl

If you're in a big rig, don't even bother. We have a 40ft combo with only a 23ft TT and did not even attempt to back into one of the few spots that looked as if it *might* accomodate our set up. Instead, since it was off season, we parked in one of the parking lots. It worked out fine and the rangers didn't hassle us or anything, but it was less than ideal. That said, this state park is not to be missed if you're in the area, simply because of the cool geologic wonders of the sinks and the rise. Maybe visit the park as a day trip from one of Lander's other RV parks! - ringworm
