We stayed here for four nights and enjoyed it very much. There are no activities, but with everything to see in the area, who wants to sit all day in a campground? We did not use the restrooms or showers, but we did use the laundry, which was clean and less expensive than most at other campgrounds. The CG was far enough from the Interstate so there was no highway noise, and it was extremely quiet at night. We saw that a considerable number of travelers use AB for one-night stands, but the folks that we interacted with were friendly and doing what we enjoy doing, traveling. We tried the BBQ meals from their restaurant, and truthfully we were not impressed. Our ribs and brisket were far from being moist and falling off the bone. We stayed in the south end. If we return to the area, we would definitely stay here again. - Love To Travel 2

Not the best part of town but, protected by fencing and security guards. This is a good park for short term and overnight. Park divided into two sections - one for Full Timers and shorter rigs, the other for Big Rigs and overnighters. All gravel, easy in and out, spacing is adequate but not too close.
Family run with a great BBQ restaurant on site - highly recommended!
We were here for 3 nights and did some visiting in the area.
WiFi was weak at times and Verizon was good.
We would stay here again with no problem. - Larry Jenkins

This was a park where it appeared there are quite a few of permanent residents, it did not create any problem other than the appearance of the park was not well maintained. We had a full hook up with cable TV and the WIFI was slow. The sites were very close together and you heard the neighbors A/C or heater running during the night. - Jim Moyer

This park is run-down and not at all cared for. There are old commodes, rotten boards, and sacks of hardened cement beside the swimming pool with weeds grown up around them for instance. The "playground" is filled with faded, cracked old toys that should be thrown away. The putt putt golf is a joke and unusable. Our picnic table was rotten and filthy. The bathrooms were not clean when we arrived and had not been cleaned by the next afternoon when we left. Trash cans overflowing. Road full of potholes. They have people hired that seemed to do nothing but sit in the office and talk. You would think they would at least go clean something or throw away some junk and trash. I would not stay here again. The lack of plain old cleanliness and repair is inexcusable. Don't go here. If you're desperate, find a pullout on the highway instead. This place is a total waste of your money. - quertyuiop

Entire park needs repair and maintenance. This place looks like a dump park for refuge old trailer and mobile homes. Check in staff in office very rude and unfriendly - they forget who the customer is. Office is filthy dirty and I hear the baths/showers are a disgrace and in need of the health department inspection. Sites are grass, road is dirt/gravel, golf a joke, but the wifi and cable work. No minimal requirements here...trash everywhere, clothes lines, just a junk of a place...The only positive comment is the parking attendant who is very nice. - Oooooooo

Liked this park. Small and a little tight, but felt like it was clean and cared for. Staff really helped our 22 Rigs get settled in and took care of all individual requests. Easy access to downtown via US30. Moving 22 RV's from place to place can be a challenge but these folks did their best to accommodate any and all requests. Everyone in our group was satisfied. We will stay here again for sure during Frontier Days. Good strong 30amp which worked fine for our All-Electric Bus. - Sealbch

Ok for an overnight stop, but a little expensive if you don't have Escapees or other discount.
Pros: Utilities good. Site level (grass and some long lost gravel) Office staff very pleasant and acommodating. Some staples available in the office (milk, beer, ice, frozen dinners etc) along with a few RV items. Onsite restaurant food is good (although expensive, especially for alcohol). Occasional live music in the restaurant/bar.
Cons: I get the feeling the restaurant staff is only as attentive as they have to be. Sites are very close together, and my site was full of cigarette butts, beer caps, and other misc. small pieces of junk that had obviously been there for a while. Pretty much that way all over. Fireworks stands nearby means the occasional rocket/firecrackers going off in the park late at night. Very dangerous I think, (dry climate) not to mention annoying, and stuff raining down on roofs if the wind is right or if you happen to be close to the fool who has no regard for anyone else. Park could use a good cleaning and sprucing up. Would return, but only for an overnight. - tinstartrvlr

Very busy, very full park. A Mini Cooper convention and rodeo were in site that evening, so a bit noisy, but got quiet early on. Lots to keep one busy, and things for kids to do. A real western theme ranch. Worth the stop. In a rural area, but this historic ranch offers a lot to do -- rides, entertainment, shopping, animals to see up close, etc. - W Davidson

We were lucky to snag a 30 amp electric with water site for the first 3 nights of Cheyenne Frontier Days. This place is an interesting mix of tourist trap, a true working ranch and a roughed in campground. We happened to eat in both restaurants - unmemorable at best. Not bad - just not really good. The RV Park itself has rough gravel/mud interior roads and the spacing was very tight. But we didn't stay in that area. We drove through there to more rough terrain to park - in a field. There were a few sites on the edge closest to the real RV park with electric and water. At first it didn't look too inviting. But once I moved the very rustic picnic table out of the middle of my narrow site, backed in and got settled all was fine. Water pressure was OK and no problems operating my 50 amp coach on 30 amps. We were packed in like sardines along the row with electric and had tents immediately behind us but everyone was polite and courteous so it worked out. The worst part of the experience was I25 and pounding noise all through the night. It made windows open sleeping difficult. The people in the Trading Post which is central operations were very nice and somewhat helpful.We didn't use any of the tourist attractions so can't speak to that - not our cup of tea. I would stay again under the same circumstances but would not go back by choice just to hang around the area. - kdlee747

The park is huge, measured in miles, developed around the Granite Reservoir and the Crystal Reservoir. The area is on the Plains with few trees. The lakes, reservoirs, are lovely. There are bike paths, hiking trails, mountain bike trails, boat ramps, fishing, and horse trails. The scenery is spectacular if you like deserts. It is used mainly by locals for weekend outings, but there is a lot of room for transients. The roads are gravel - a bit dusty - and the sites spacious.
There are a few sites that provide electricity and water for an extra charge, (sites 1-8). These sites are available by reservation only, and that brings you right up against the bureaucracy of a government run RV park. (The site that we were refused, was empty the entire time we were here.) I will not go into that here other than to say reservations are handled by an offsite third party, and there is little coordination between them and the onsite people. This is a good thing as what coordination there is, is wrong. There is no dump station on site. And, of course, you will never see a state employee in the park. The work is handled by 'camp hosts'.
The area is beautiful with abundant wildlife: lots of Groundhogs. Cheyenne and Laramie are both about a 25-mile drive. My wife and I would not hesitate to visit this park again prepared to dry camp. Oh, I should mention that they may or may not charge full camping price for each vehicle that you bring.
The Wyoming State Museum provides a good overview of what's happened in the state and well worth a visit. The museum covers the coal industry in Wyoming that makes them all Republicans. The Air Force Missile Museum gives one a thin, but worthwhile overview of our deterrent missile system. However, you have to be able to pass through security and willing to be escorted on and off of the base. I had to wonder if too many security checks affect your security clearance like too many credit checks affects your credit rating.
No Dump Station! Take it with you when you leave. - The Penguin

We stayed here on a Saturday in July without a reservation. The ranger said that we would be able to find a space because there was a fire ban. We stayed in our 25 foot motorhome and dry camped. We found a nice site overlooking the lake. The roads are gravel but our site was fairly flat. It was just a few steps down to the lake. The lake was full of boats, paddle boards and kayakers. You can rent a canoe for $20. The archery range is amazing and one of the best we have ever seen, but it is not excessively challenging. Even the beginner has a chance on this range as the targets are large and the distance to the targets well marked. However, need to do some hiking and bring some water. The sunsets over the lake are amazing. This park is best for the active RVer. - KSum

Curt Gowdy State Park is about halfway between Cheyenne and Laramie and is a decent alternative to commercial campgrounds for visiting either place. The drive to either city is gorgeous, but about 25 minutes each way. The park is mainly a water sports and mountain biking destination. There are nearly 40 miles of excellent mountain bike trails. There are many very large waterfront sites in both the dry camping and electric/water areas. A lot of the sites are set up for multiple RVs so an extended family could have a great group camping experience here. The prevalence of mountain bikes makes the trails less pleasant for hiking and there is no swimming in the lakes. Overall, though, a very scenic and pleasant campground. We had surprisingly decent Verizon 4G and cell reception. - MrSunshine

A bit pricey for a no frills KOA used mainly as an overnighter along I-80. About five miles from Cheyenne, seven miles east of I-25. Pilot Truck stop right across the road from RV park. Roads and sites are gravel. We had to park our toad sideways at the back of our site. Utilities worked fine. Cable, but a number of the channels didn't work. WiFi was not very good even with us being parked under the repeater. Little shade. Dusty and windy. Restrooms were nice with private showers. Decent pet area. - VegasVagabonds

Had not planned on staying in Cheyenne, but due to a blowout, needed to stay one night. Fortunate to find this campground at the last minute. The host was great and very helpful!! The campground is very well kept and maintained. Would stay here again. - GT and DK

With a complete gravel lot with a few trees here and there...this park doesn't pretend to be more than an overnight stop...or maybe a couple of days for those visiting Cheyenne. But we kinda liked it a lot...since they set out to do the things that matter to such customers....right.
The gravel is small and uniform and flat. The services at each site are well maintained & the cable and internet worked well. Bathrooms and showers were very clean and the front desk gave us a nice welcome.
I thought it was about $10 bucks too pricey for the location and the facilities...but it met our expectations and would overight here again. - Camaraderie

We called and were told that all they had available was a site with electric and water however we were never told that the site is actually a field that is not even in the park. It's next to a truck stop. The trucks are left running and the rumbling caused a constant vibration in the ground. The noise from the trucks and I-80 is loud enough that we had to leave the AC running to try and block it out. On the bright side the camp hosts are very friendly and nice. - mkb

I try not to be negative, but this campground is terrible. If you have a small RV without a slide out, you might be fine. There was no one in the office, so we called the number and found the owners were gone to the mountains. A nice lady the owners called came by and directed us to our site. We set up and then she came back and told us we had to move. This is not a campground, but where people live in their RVs and mobile homes. We won't ever go back. - lovepu1987

Water, Electric and Sewer was good, Site dirt/gravel, level with room for awnings, The price for this campground is good, however this is not a place for children. They have a bar in the back and it can get a bit rowdy if there are a lot of contract people. There are not a lot of choices for campgrounds. I would stay here again, good for a couple of nights. - TXBobcat

We wanted to stay within the city of Cheyenne, not out in the sticks, and were surprised by the lack of RV parks with decent reviews in town. When we called this park, at first they said all spaces were taken in the "dog area," but then they found a space for us in a location that looked like part of the road. We had to unhook our car and put it out of the way of traffic, and when we were hooking up again in the morning, residents going out to work honked at us for partly blocking the road. We never heard what the "dog area" meant - we walked our dogs everywhere and no one complained.
This park is divided between trailer homes and RVs. Most RV spaces are taken by long-term residents in old, run-down trailers. This doesn't bother us as long as the people are quiet, working folks, and most usually are. The entire park is dirt, and not very well organized. I would describe it as primitive, though it did have all services available. For what is provided, it is pricey, and they wanted extra to use a credit card. I wouldn't willingly stay here again.
One reviewer said the shower was in a basement, and one improvement since then is that there is now a shower building. - pompomgirl

We were desperate and it was late so we ended up staying at this trailer park, not a campground. This needs to be spruced up and husband needed the shower located in a basement. I passed on that. Only a spot with a hook up and Wi-Fi. They should charge 25 dollars at most for this place. The rodeo was in town and that was fun. - Gail Z

This campground is easily accessible and conveniently located near all shopping and restaurants. Staff is friendly, Wi-Fi is great. The park is part of a larger trailer park with lots of permanent somewhat rundown campers/trailers. Not exactly kid friendly. Road noise, airplanes, and emergency vehicles noticeable especially at night. We stayed here several weeks, while hubby worked. Probably would not stay here again. - The Crowder Clan

Sites behind the RV store and repair shop. Level, easy access FHU sites with 30amp electric. Good Verizon service. There were a few planes flying over but the didn't bother us. Permanent residents that bothered us repeatedly. Good cheap place to stop when we need repairs on the car. - rhianna
Sep 2014 - $22.00
This is just a bare bones place to park. Nothing special, except the rate, which was great, and it was very far from the road. It was peaceful and quiet. Everything worked, the sites were level, and the staff was friendly, helpful and courteous. I would definitely stay again. - Ken24
Sep 2014 - $22.00
The staff are friendly and it is quiet when the planes aren't flying over. I would not consider this place to be an RV park. It is simply a crowded business parking lot and someone added water and electric hookups. No wifi or cable TV. It was cheap and a place to park for a night but we will not stay here again. We stayed one night in a 44' coach and the site was not long enough. Several permanent trailer residents. - travelingpeople
Aug 2016 - $20.00
A smaller campground with a mixture of sites. We got a site where the traveled level area was just big enough for the wheels of the 39 foot coach. We parked the car sideways in front. It was a back in site. They have some pull throughs that are longer and some back in sites that were a little longer. The sites are close together but there is a lot of open areas around the park. We were able to get WiFi at our site but we were told that the WiFi may or may not be available. Follow the directions on their web page and you will not have any issue using the main gate that is open 24 hours. Lots of fields to walk the dog. The sites need more gravel and some leveling. The price is right and the location is good. - Ludmilla

No internet in pull thru sites, last row, inside RV, limited internet outside. Pull thru sites are Jack & Jill set up & all gravel. They're close but not inches from ea. other like Edwards AFB. Back-ins have grass and a fair amount of space between ea. other. Trains run right next to the park and run throughout the day & night blowing their horn. Easy freeway access to I-80 & I-25. Strongly suggest you make a reservation. We were here a week and the park was always full by the end of each day. - MAFLAF

This could be such a great campground. It's nestled in a small canyon with lots of shade trees. But coming in you immediately see some long term RV's with outdoor appliances. There were also some ratty looking storage sheds. When you walk around the area you see a need for trash pickup. It's a nice base and there are antelope andgeese wandering around that provide great photo ops. - Newbet
