Gravel lot with many permanents. Most sites are back-ins. Wi-Fi not operating. Would use only in an emergency. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

After reading other reviewers of the Fort Caspar Campground I have to agree with what they wrote, but not about the numerical rating that they gave the campground. I think this campground is underrated. Several reviewers commented that there are many full time residents of this park which is true, but why does it have to distract from the campgrounds numerical ratings? Yes, a few of the residential RVs were old and not in perfect shape, but most were well taken care of and looked very neat and orderly. There also, quite a few people in very high end motorhomes as well. As far as the Wi-Fi was concerned, I could only access it at the front office, but this is a common complaint with most RV parks that offer free Wi-Fi. However, this campground was trying to do something about the quality of the Wi-Fi, so when the clerk at the front desk found out that I could not even detect the Wi-Fi signal from my campsite, she gave me the password to the clerk's personal Wi-Fi hotspot, so that my wife could surf from our motorhome.

Everything else that you read about this campground is true, gravel sites, not much shade, but you have friendly staff to help you out and it is in a convenient location in the middle of Casper, WY. One thing that I did not see mentioned was the walking trails around the campground. My wife and I saw these walking trails on the campground map and decided to take a walk. We found the small tent camping area near fish ponds to be very pretty, but some of the other trails seemed to be overgrown, so much so that my wife decided not to continue. But all in all we found this campground to be much more pleasant that the numerical ratings suggest. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Motorhome.

$39 with a Good Sam discount for this place is crazy. It is mostly full of full time residents. It is all gravel, no grass, no picnic table, no fire pit. It's a place to park no more. If I hadn't needed hook ups for the night Wal-Mart would have been better. The folks that run the place are very friendly however. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I phoned in for a reservation a couple of day before we arrived in Casper, and was quoted a slightly lower price for our stay than what we were charged on arrival. However, the rate was still satisfactory. The lady that checked us in was knowledgeable and cordial. The park is much better kept than the last time we used it, and we found it to be a pleasant place to stay. The things that were not quite as advertised; Wi-Fi, weak and VERY slow. Cable TV, not really available. The desk attendant mumbled something about having to get a cable box from the cable company. Not worth following up on, as we were in Casper for shopping and dining. I will probably use this campground in the future, as it is well located for getting around Casper. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy access to downtown Casper, and while the Mall is a ways away, freeway and main street access makes the trip easy. There are also several top notch RV dealers and service centers in the area which is nice.

I stayed from March - Sept. on a monthly basis (hence the rate). This park is under NEW management - and they are GREAT - very different from the prior manager.

Good location in W Casper (near Mills). Safe - secure - and a great place to live while working in town. New playground for kids. Bathrooms are immaculate.

Two concerns - water pressure is fairly low and water is VERY hard (I bought an anode to save my water tank.) We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Casper is a great center for historic sites - all major westward migrations in the 1800's passed right through here.

Rate reflects PA discount for two days and full price for one. Check-in was easy. Parking is on gravel (the whole park is gravel) with good power and water. Speed limit is 5 MPH but hardly anyone observes that so there is a lot of dust kicked up. The cable TV system was down while we were here. There is free WiFi and although I could connect to the network, it was painfully slow. Satellite reception is good throughout the park. There are a lot of permanent residents that do not keep their sites very tidy. My value rating of 2 stars is based on the $44 a night full-price. Charging that for a gravel parking lot with very bad. WiFi is not a good value. The only reason we stay here is for the Passport America discount. If that wasn't offered, we would definitely go somewhere else. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Motorhome.

When arriving, there is a dip at the entrance. Go slow. If you are going to be here a while, get a air filtering machine. A lot of dust!

Staff was very friendly and helpful at check in. Gravel roads and sites with a lot of older trailers. No cable but local channels. Could not get WiFi to work. Lot of dust. Would not stay again for full price of $44.00, as owner stated that next year they would probably not be PA. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is basically designed for long term residents. They do have a number of spots available for the traveling RVer's.

The entire park consists of packed gravel and dirt. The only green grass is at the park office. Most of the sites are "back-to-back. There are a few pull-thrus. All sites have FHU with 20/30/50 amp electrical service and are located in the appropriate location.

The bathroom and showers were clean and usable. There was a laundry room that we did not use. WiFi was also available but the office staff mentioned it was weak and you should go the office for a better connection.

Most of the residents did obey the speed limit within the park of 5 miles an hour. It was very quiet at night.

The entrance to this park is a little confusing. Follow the signs to the Fort Caspar museum. Once inside the museum follow the signs to the campground. The park is located in the back of museum.

The price reflects the Passport America rate that was ½ off the rack rate. $44 for this park seems very steep. Unfortunately the few parks that are in this town are getting close to this rate. Even the fairground is getting over $35 per night.

The cost of campgrounds in Casper might make we think about bypassing this town.

We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

First I have to praise the person on duty when we arrived without a reservation. She was able to find us a spot for 1 night. Now, 1 night is all I would stay even if we didn't have places to be. It is a big gravel parking lot with hookups. No table unless you are a long term resident. Dogs barking' radios playing, hammering and power saws did not help us rest for another day's travel. It would have definitely not been worth the full price if we didn't have Passport America. If we pass through again we will try somewhere else. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Another gravel lot with power, water, sewer, and free wifi. That's all we find in Wyoming. It was near everything we wanted to do in Casper. It is behind the Fort Casper Museum; just drive around to the left and follow the signs. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Motorhome.

The Pioneer Interpretive Center on the north end of town was wonderful. The Tate Paleo museum was amazing, and free. Never did find a good restaurant other than Eggingfon's which was too expensive.

All gravel P/A RV park on the Platte River. Walking trail along the river. No amenities. OK for a night. Next door to Fort Caspar which is worth a visit. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Motorhome.

All gravel and rigs are close to one another-no shade. Three fenced dog runs, which were very helpful. Management change mentioned so hopefully improvements will be made to the grounds. Nice laundry- 4 washers and dryers. Good for an overnight stay. Showers and toilets were clean but very small areas. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Motorhome.

No TV. They said they had changed providers in January and had problems with changeover that had not been fixed, but no one seemed to be working on it. Internet spotty. Most people here appeared to be permanent and were living in their in old dirty and broken down travel trailers or old motor homes. Trashy everywhere. Unkempt. Old park that has not been updated. Only 4 washers and dryers for entire park...difficult to do laundry because in use. Road dirt and gravel and filled with potholes. Will not stay again. Only positive: office staff friendly.

Congenial staff. Park is located on gravel road behind the museum but we were able to get in with 45' motorhome just fine. Gravel level pull-through site. Free Wi-Fi was satisfactory. Slow at times but my Verizon hotspot worked great. We didn't bother with the free cable as office said they were still working on it. We received a dozen stations over the air very clear.

No road noise. A lot of permanent rigs but park quite quiet. We stayed 2 nights. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Motorhome.

National Historic Trails Interpretive Center is fantastic! $6 adult and we spent 2 hours. Good meal at Sherrie's Place, short drive to 310 West Yellowstone Hwy. Drove up Casper Mountain to Rotary Park and enjoyed time at the beautiful waterfall.

Lady at office was very nice and helpful. Drove through the park to check out available sites and mistakenly drove up a one-way, and an older man followed us through the park and when he caught up with us, he yelled and insulted us for driving on the one-way. We were very apologetic and said we didn't realize but he threatened us that he better not catch us doing that again. I don't know if he was a long-term resident there or worked there because he had been in the office, but we were trying to tell him we were very sorry that we didn't see the sign and despite our kind response he continued to berate us. Needless to say, we did not want to stay in a place with those kinds of neighbors or staff if he was one. Also, there is nothing at the sites, just a huge gravel parking lot with hook ups. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Travel Trailer.
