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.

Tips for other Campers:

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 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. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

If you are looking for a flat, overnight, quiet place to sleep, this is your park. If you are looking for trees, grass, amenities for children, this is not your park. This RV Park is a gravel parking lot with hookups. No joking! Also appears a lot of folks live here more permanently than passing through. The laundry facility is very nice and clean. Bathrooms/showers were not as up to par as I would expect from a Good Sam Club Park. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Industrial campground on gravel parking lot. Caters to long-term workers in area, only tolerates travelers. Extremely utilitarian. Wi-Fi terrible, cable TV good, and showers clean. Office informative, but not friendly. Way, way, way overpriced even with 2 night Passport America discount. I would not describe this as camping, just stopping to empty and fill. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Motorhome.

The rate is Passport America. The good: utilities worked fine, site was level. The Bad: dumpy, muddy, barking dogs, andas the feel of an RV storage lot as it is so packed in. It served us fine for a one night stay traveling through but I wouldn't enjoy staying any longer. Note: the neighboring museum is inexpensive and informative.

Used our Passport America discount for a $20 a night stay. 90 percent of the sites are long term residents. The campground is all gravel. Sites seem wide but the way they are arranged we were literally an arms length from the next RV. The fenced in dog park is just gravel...no shrubs or trees. Laundry room has four washers at $1.50 and 4 dryers at .75 cents. Restrooms are clean but NO doors on toilets, just a shower curtain! Would not stay here nor recommend. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Travel Trailer.

While not a destination campground, a perfectly fine place to spend a couple of nights. Lots of long-term campers but they are mostly around the perimeter of the campground and were very quiet. They put us in a roomy pull-through in the center of the campground. Good level site with 50 amp power, water, sewer and cable. They have a small "nature park" that takes you back to the river and was good for stretching your legs. Office/store had a few snacks and ice cream bars available. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

One of the few parks in Casper that I could contact by phone and was actually open at this time of year. Pleasant owners/operators. Helpful in finding the park (it's tucked behind the Fort Caspar Museum and you have to take the museum entrance to get there. We spent a VERY quite night here. Lots of long term workers in the back-in sites around the edges, but many large pull-thrus in the center. Roads and traffic forced careful driving with a 40 foot fifth wheel. Would stay again. Trees around the edges of park. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Okay place for an overnight stay, but not too much more to recommend it. Sites are large and flat, but very open and exposed. It is quiet, even with many long term residents. Getting in and out is tricky with a big rig. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Motorhome.
