9 Parks near Fort Laramie, Wyoming

This was our first time to stay here. We had read the other reviews and were aware of the trains being in close proximity. We just needed a safe place to get off the road for the night and to have hookups. If you are a light sleeper and any noise will wake you up then this park is not for you. But if a little train noise is no problem then this is a nice small park. A large RV over 40 foot might have a problem in finding a site. We were in Site #4 and it was long enough for our 33 foot 5wheel and truck. We stayed on the Passport America discount which came to $15.00 cash only. We just hooked up electrical. There were water and sewer connections in out site. We would stay here again if we needed to get off the road. - TexasRVer

The Chuck wagon is a sixteen site park maintained with loving care. The roads and sites are a good grade of gravel with little dust. The front yards are well maintained grass. Site #2 is best. WiFi is very fast and the signal strong-unusual for an RV park. Water pressure is good. There are well tended flowers on every site. Showers are clean and well maintained like the rest of the park. There is a train rail and crossing adjacent. If you do not like trains, noise, and very loud horns in the middle of the night this park is not for you. My wife and I love trains and sleep soundly so we will not hesitate to return. - The Penguin

I called to make a reservation as we are PA members, and was told you don't need to make a reservation. When we arrived the owner/manager told me she likes to have reservations so that if people don't show up she an charge their credit card anyway!
We stayed here one night and that was enough!
The owner/manager was very nice and friendly and the grounds are well kept. We arrived and she placed us in lot# 4 which was fully in the sun on an unlevel site. As we were setting up, another RV came in and she put them in the shady level site with a picnic table :(
After we managed to level up, we settled down for the night: that's when the trains started. The owner never mentioned the noise that would go on ALL NIGHT! Every 1/2 hr a train would go past blasting theirs horns for the level crossing! ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT!
The campground is no more than 100 yards from the tracks so you can imagine the noise. If we had known the trains ran all night, we would have moved on.
They also give you the password for the wifi. Forget it: wifi was hopeless and no phone or hot spot signal T-Mobile or AT&T. - Liane63

This is a small city park that allows parking on the side of the road around the park. Electric is no longer available, but there are two water connections in the park, a dumpster and restrooms. We stayed one night and two other rigs were there. The railroad is near by and trains, with whistles, run every 20 minutes. This is a good park for one night while visiting nearby Fort Laramie. We dropped $3 in their donation box. - Norm In Bama

This is a city park that has electricity and water available. There are about 8 sites available parallel to the electrical and water connections. Accommodations are a bit lacking but a welcome sight after a long day. The cost can not be beat. Some of the electrical boxes have fallen victim to vandals and abuse but for $ 3.00 you can't complain. We actually camped here in July 2007 but wanted to get it on the map as we overlooked it last year. Fort Laramie is very small but super friendly and the Flag restaurant serves great food. The Fort Laramie National Historic Site is just a mile down the road. - JWT

Pony Soldier is a fairly basic RV park that exactly met our needs. We visited during the fall slow season and practically had the place to ourselves for our four day stay. We were encouraged to pick our own space from the available 50 amp pull-thru spots. Not many of the grass and dirt sites have a picnic table, but those that were available could be moved. The staff was quite friendly and helpful. WiFi worked pretty well, perhaps because we were the only ones using it! We found Pony Soldier to be a great bargain and would happily stay there again. - The Borgs

Excellent base camp spot conveniently located to town of Lingle, town of Guernsey and Ft. Laramie National Park. We didn't make it up to Guernsey State Park so not sure how much farther up there, though I suspect it would convenient to there also.
Park is kept clean, full hook-ups available, some spots had 50 amp available, pretty level spots, good water pressure while we were there, owners go above and beyond to help accommodate. There is no pool, but if you have brought bikes along for the kids, they can certainly burn some energy that way. Community fire pit available when the weather allows (county was on fire ban while we were there.)
Yes, the park is located across the highway from a train crossing, but once we were in our camper for the night we did not hear it at all. Nor did we find it a nuisance while sitting outside visiting. - wyomingconnie

The park itself was fine, but the train ran every 45 minutes and blew its horn not once, not twice, but four times. Didn't really get any sleep. Can't recommend it because of the train. On the good side, very nice lady running the park. - RMCC

Larson Park is attached to the Guernsey golf course. There are 15 sites. 30/50 power on the power pedestals. Please note there is NO RV dump available. Closest one is the Wyoming Visitor Center at I-25 or within Guernsey State Park.
The entrance to one of the Oregon Trail historic sites in nearly across the road and would be hikeable.
All sites are back-ins. With relatively close spacing that might be challenging for rigs over 30ft, making the backing turn to get in.
Seems to get light to moderate use. - Gary Camp-Inn

The person at the registration was very friendly and helpful in pointing out local attractions. She then told us that if the RV parked next to our assigned site was using the 50 amp plug on the shared post she could lend us an adapter for the 30 amp. We lucked out that the 50 amp was available because the temps were to be in the high 90’s and we wanted to be able to run both of our ACs. We discovered after our first day that there are no dump facilities at this campground. I guess that I should have read the older reviews about that. Naturally, their website makes no mention. There are no pull through sites so, if you’re looking to use this as an overnight stopover you’ll have to back in and unhitch because the sites are just big enough to get our 40’ motor home in. The scenery and proximity to Register Cliff are nice extras. Did not use the restrooms and we had very good Verizon reception. Apparently, they don’t enforce the pets on leash rule as there were several dogs running loose the three days we spent here. - Lil' Red Rooster

Great RV park off of the beaten path. This was our very first experience with a motorhome, and staying in an RV park. The people that we dealt with were very helpful, and courteous to make sure our stay was enjoyable. This Trail Ruts Golf Course and Larson Park Campground sit down very close to the Platte River and have several areas to ride bikes to see the historic Trail Ruts for the wagon trains that traveled the Oregon Trail many years ago. - donindenver

Mid-week in September, the place was practically deserted. We loved it. I can imagine it would feel a bit cramped if full (hence a few points off, I didn't want you to go in the summer and be disappointed). Great view of lake, great hiking/biking trails. The museum is spectacular; the information is presented in such a way that you can easily come away with new knowledge. The building and display cases are worth checking out even if you don't want to learn anything. ; ) There are three other CCC structures worth seeking out. We had a water + electricity site. - MichelleKry

Yes, the coal trains are close at hand and there are only pit, albeit nice, toilets. However the price is right and the location is good for seeing the area sites. The trains did not keep me from sleeping and were interesting to see. Guernsey is small so bring your own supplies. Would stay here again. - AZJC

I would think with water sites available the state of Wyoming could install showers or sewer hook ups. The area was beautiful in spite of the lake being drained. Our site was level and we did take advantage of the water hook up sites. Some of the other campgrounds in the park were very nice, but had no electric or water. The park does have a dump station at the entrance. We will not stay here again. - Dewey Smith

We arrived in the afternoon and found an open site. This is a city park. Water spigots require a combination for unlocking. The City Hall or the Police can give the combination to you. The sites have a cement slab and picnic table. Very level. Plenty of room between sites for our slideouts. No sewer connection, but the dump station is close-by. We would stay here again if we are traveling through the area. - rlhoge

Agree with the two previous ratings. My on only complaint; the RV park is a part of and adjacent to the city park. Consequently, lots of young people use the park facilities - basketball, etc. Being young, they tend to drive a bit FAST and do so through the RV park area.
When calling into the city offices (police), they responded within 15 minutes. While all the sites are back-in, a couple may be accessed by driving around the back/riverside road and pulling through - sites 10 and eleven and possibly twelve only. We travel in a 40 RV, and concrete pad is just large enough to contain it with the jacks down. Sat usage is iffy when parking in the back row (Seven thru twelve) due to trees We will use the park again, if we pass through the area. - JohnandMari

JacknPeg's review was accurate. This is a little strange because the navigator (yours truly) screwed up the plan, and we got there at about noon. Way to early for EOD. So, we looked around and let the dog have her "grass stop". DW did use the bathroom. The big problem that I saw was that the instruction board d is not in your face as you arrive. So, we had lunch and left. I only saw two picnic tables, maybe the others are under the shelter. Kind of too bad we did want to end the day then. - Matt_C

This park has 27 spots with Water, 30a and sewer. Spots are reasonably level. All gravel. It is a self service park so there is no one there for checkin. 1-2 bars on Verizon which is typical for Torrington. There were only 2 other RV's when I drove through. And two that were there permanently, didn't look like they were being used. Gave it an average score, serviceable but not exactly an outstanding RV park. - Gary Camp-Inn

This is a "new" RV Park at 1270 W A Street - it's actually accessed off US Highway 85 on the south end of town, just west of Interstate futures. We stayed here a month ($350) because we have lots of friends in the area. It's very inexpensive but with no amenities. You need to call ahead and the manager will meet you at the site, and turn on power to your site. They're not yet set up for credit cards. There are no listings for RV Parks in Torrington, but you could also stay at Goshen Country Fairgrounds, in addition to this RV Park. All hookups worked fine. Be warned there are train tracks 3 blocks away, with heavy coal train traffic. We will stay here again because the sites were large, and the managers were very responsive when we needed anything. The RV park is very close to two nice grocery stores, and it's a wonderful town to walk around and shop. Friendly folks! - Wyoming RVers

This place was a dump. Overgrown grass, junk cars, mosquitoes, abandoned buildings with windows broken out and no tables or grills. We were actually concerned about our safety in this RV site. We do not recommend especially if you have children. Deliverance was all we could say. - Drewski

This park is in need of TLC, there are weeds everywhere including where you park your coach. They have a pile of rock on site so hopefully at some point they will use it. The check-in was easy pick a site and pay your $25. The turns are tight but we did not have to unhook the toad. For us this was the only choice we where headed to Cheyenne but the rodeo was in town and no vacancy anywhere. The sign to the park is down so it is easy to miss the park it is about 4.5 miles from I25, slow down the turn in is sharp. I added a point because they have the fastest internet we have had. - sjones

This is a very small park outside of Wheatland, quite a drive into town. Quiet and good level gravel sites, and gravel interior roads. No issues with water or electricity. There were 2 washers and 1 dryer. Some permanent residents but they were quiet and gone during the daytime. A no frills park and priced right! Would stay here again. - Vicki K

This park was a convenient stop between Custer State Park, SD, and our next stop, Rocky Mountain National Park. As has been noted in previous reviews, the owners work elsewhere during the day. A phone number was posted on the adjacent house. We called and were told to pick a site and pay later. We got an easy, level pull-thru and settled in. The owner came by in the evening and was very friendly. Although it could use a little grass mowing, everything worked as expected and we'd stay there again. - Desert Beacon
