3 Parks near Kemmerer, Wyoming
Aug 2016 - $35.00
Easily accessible from the highway, the park is very well kept with spacious, level sites and is quiet and peaceful. The campground is gravel, but 10 of the pull through spaces are paved with asphalt. There are also several back-in spaces next to the Hams Fork River that runs alongside the park. There is a trail down the side of the river that runs a few blocks up to the main road which is a nice walk to view local wildlife.
According to the owner, reservations are NOT required (as written in an August, 2014 review). The only exception is during the Oyster Ridge Music Festival held the last week of July. Otherwise, upon arrival a sign on the office window indicates the pricing and asks that you pick a site, fill out and put your payment in the envelope provided and drop it in the night slot.
The owners live near and check on things periodically. They are extremely friendly and helpful offering an information sheet about things to do in the area. You will see them working around the park throughout the day. We were parked on an asphalt, pull through site with FHUs & cable (4 channels). WI-FI is only available by calling the local provider. The WI-FI rate is an additional $5/day or $20/week for 2 devices. We stayed for over a week and the service worked fairly well.
During our stay we enjoyed drives up to Fossil Butte National Monument just about 9 miles away. The area also offers fossil digs, hiking, fishing, boating, golfing and wildlife viewing. The town of Kemmerer hosts a museum and the first J.C. Penny "Mother" store built in 1904.
We enjoyed our stay and will be back again the next time we are through this area. - chefb1969

Easy access to highway and site. Small campground with self check-in, all sites pull-through and full hookup. Select a site, fill out envelope, and deposit in slot along with cash or check. Owner's daughter stops by in evening to check on everyone and see if anything is needed, etc. Also provides any information needed on town or things to do. Campground sits next to small beautiful river; saw deer, marmots, beavers, and geese. Nice quiet walk following the river for a few blocks, back to the main road. Definitely recommend and hope to go back. - Rose & Noel

This RV Park has full hookups with pull-through spaces. Very clean and level. No tents are allowed and credit cards are not accepted. This was fine with us. Quiet and close to downtown area.
Some of the pads are asphalt. When we made the reservation, we were told to just pick a spot when we arrived. We did, and everything worked out just fine. - chrisnr1

There is evidence that this park has had better days. Everything they claim is there is as long as you include dandelions in their description of grassy sites. Some evidence of gravel is visible on most sites. Did I mention none of them appears to be particularly level. The rate ($30) is high for the condition of the place. On the flip side they have a very short season to break even. Of the three options available, this place is the least offensive. One is very close to a very busy rail yard and the other is in a bar parking lot. - CharlieB

Roads are poor gravel and the sites are dirt. You can't make reservations and there is no office that I could tell. Just put your money in an envelope at the entrance and look for a open site. I didn't find a site that looked open even though it looks like there are many incomplete sites under construction. I ended up calling their phone and got ahold of what appeared to be the handyman who put me into a site that he said was reserved but they were not here yet??? I stayed here two nights. This could be a great place if they set it up like a "real" RV park. - Dennis_K

WE DID NOT CAMP HERE, but found it while driving by. Much better site than the RV park down the road. - John Boyd

I hesitate to give a poor review knowing that the owner is trying to make a living, but travelers need to know what to expect.
The only positives about this campground are good power and water. Nothing else is positive.
We arrived on a Sunday so the restaurant was closed and no one was there to tells us where to park. We were not preassigned a spot so we tried to find the least objectionable. The first wreaked of strong sewage, another was flooded by a leaking water line. All the others are a mix of river rock, dirt, and ankle high weeds. The sewer dump at our site was hidden under several large rocks. It was just an open pipe with no cap.
When we were ready to leave the next morning about 8 AM my wife went to the restaurant to pay our fee. She reports the restaurant was not appealing and had a strange odor. Even if we had come on a day they were open, we would not have eaten there. So, even their offer of not charging the $20 nightly fee if you spend $30 in the restaurant it not enticing. I would not stay here again. - Arn

This RV park is nothing to just pass by! It's really nothing to look at - you're looking at the back of the grill and a golf course. But the deal when I was there was this - spend $30 on food and beverages at the grill and the RV site is FREE. Ok, but what the deal doesn't tell you is how fantastic the food, beverage and service are. I can honestly say when I was there the food was outstanding and the service was far beyond expectations. The laundry equipment looks brand new and restrooms are clean. No showers. The only downside is the Wi-Fi connections are weak and some of the sites are level on gravel/grass, some are not. Just for the delicious food alone I'd recommend at least a night's stay, though. - Qwest

The sites are dirt, weed, gravel blend in a U shape on sides and back of the Grill.The back row is hard on the local golf course. WIFI is slow. Note that there are a number of semi-permanent trailers with oil field workers who leave at about 5 AM. Also note that the normal rate of $25/night is waived if you dine in the restaurant.The restaurant is casual but very fresh foods and high quality....really only reason to overnight here. - bugsy
