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. We camped at Chuckwagon RV in a Motorhome.

Nice little campground, however, it's proximity to the train tracks is regrettable. Freight trains whistle through as late as 1:00am. Not recommended if you are a light sleeper. We camped at Chuckwagon RV in a Motorhome.

Small park with friendly owners. 3 miles from the Fort Laramie National Historic Site. It is next to the railroad tracks but I must be lucky since there hasn't been a train this afternoon. The tracks are usually heavy with coal trains from the open pit mines in Wyoming.

Site was dead level. Easy setup. 50amp worked fine. There are couple of what look like full time rigs and the houses surround the sites. No big deal unless you have a hang up attitude.

The town has one restaurant but most other spots including a gas station that was open a couple of years ago are now closed. Check out the Lira Mexican restaurant in Lingle, WY which is 10 minutes to the east. We camped at Chuckwagon RV in a Travel Trailer.

If you like American history and the settling of the west then the Fort Laramie National Site has a number of buildings and interesting history. Also the town was the first town in Wyoming.

Poorly maintained, overpriced RV park occupying the front yards of 3 houses. Good afternoon shade is about the only redeeming feature. The train noise from coal and oil unit trains on the immediately adjacent BN-SF mainline is nearly unbearable. Fortunately, the frequent and LOOOOOONG locomotive horns sounding at the grade crossing seemed to end at 11:00 PM and not restart until 6:00 AM. But during the night trains still came by that shook the trailer. We camped at Chuckwagon RV in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here one night. Registration was a friendly and efficient procedure. The trains were very close by but the owners had pr-warned us. Park was in need of maintenance but it worked for us for a one night stay. It was convenient to to the Oregon Ruts and Register Cliff which we enjoyed visiting. We camped at Chuckwagon RV in a Fifth Wheel.

A small, intimate, older park (about a dozen spaces), and not a lot of amenities, handily located for visiting historic sites around Fort Laramie. We looked at a campground a few miles north in Guernsey, but it was knee-deep in mosquitoes. The park has grassy spaces with picnic tables and level gravel parking pads under big old shade trees. The home-style restrooms (one for men & one for women, each with a shower) are spic and span clean, stocked with soap, paper towels, toilet paper, and discardable paper mats for the shower floor. The owner-manager, was friendly and down-to-earth. The complimentary packet we received on check-in was the most useful packet of its kind we have ever received, and owner-manager was a fountain of information on local attractions. The park was very quiet except for the trains. If you find train noises disturbing, this is not the campground for you. On the other hand, if you are a train aficionado, or you have a unit with excellent sound-proofing, you won’t mind the trains, which come through every hour or so, giving the obligatory long-short-long-long whistle blasts as they approach the highway intersection beside the campground. We camped September 9th 2013 in an Aliner popup trailer. We paid $15 (plus a refundable $5 fee for the restroom key) with a Passport card, for full hookups (no cable); free Wi-Fi was available, but we did not have time to try it. We would certainly stay at the Chuckwagon RV park again if visiting the Fort Laramie area. We camped at Chuckwagon RV in a Tent Trailer.

This park is small. Host was very friendly and honest in the web site description of the RV park when they said if you like trains you will like this park. We could not sleep because the trains run frequently very close to the park, but if you are a heavy sleeper or are used to train noise, this would be a nice place. This is one of few RV parks in the area. We had no other issues or complaints. We camped at Chuckwagon RV in a Travel Trailer.

Shady, flat grass tent spaces, good trees & hedges as wind break. Near both historical Ft. Laramie, & the town of Ft.Laramie. Friendly owner. Not fancy but nice & comfortable. We camped at Chuckwagon RV in a Tent.

Very friendly people but this is an older park and needs serious upgrading. It is not designed for modern big rigs. When we stayed there the park circuit breaker (not the one at our site) tripped about every 5 minutes. My wife has asthma and has to have air conditioning and we finally had to leave and move to another park. The exit is partially blocked by a cable securing a phone pole and we had to unhook our tow car and maneuver around to get out. The park is in a convenient location to see Fort Laramie National Historic Site but the facilities are just inadequate. We camped at Chuckwagon RV in a Motorhome.
