8 Parks near Lander, Wyoming

Might have been nice awhile back but now only electric, water and sewer. Short roads have huge potholes...washrooms and showers in the main building are closed..."cafe" and office are so grungy you're afraid to touch anything. Owner told us a previous camper had mowed the tall grass in the few usable sites so the could be rented. PPA rate only given for 3 nights so paid full rate of $25 for 2 nights plus tax. Left wondering how this place exists! - loneranger

An older ex-KOA park in need of some upkeep. Interior roads a little rough in spots, site did require a single board under some tires, water pressure and electric were good, very convenient only 1/4 mile off highway. The best selling point is the woman who greets you - very friendly and nice and maybe if you're lucky she'll wave goodbye as you leave like she did to me. I would stay again if passing thru. - Critter

Just off HWY 287 West of Landers, WY. Small, intimate campground with a lot of character. Cafe on property similar to the general stores you see in small Western towns. It is surrounded by plains with mountains everywhere., looks like an older ranch you see in this area, with a few RV sites. Staff is very friendly and helpful, guided us into our site and furnished a ladder and pruning shears to trim the trees. I would stay here again. - Ruffin It

This park caters mostly to full-time residents, with a a dozen sites or so for folks staying in the area for a few days. The rate we paid was for a month's stay; daily rates are higher, as you might expect. Electricity is extra, and we will also get an electric bill some time in the future. The sites are level and there is adequate space between the rigs, and the sites are shaded by trees. We had to adjust our position a bit in order to get satellite TV. The management was friendly, and was helpful in being sure we got our mail and packages from Fed-X. Washing of cars and rigs is allowed. We enjoyed our stay, and would stay here again. - hoppytoad

Poorly maintained park. The laundry room had 3 washers, 2 not working, 2 dryers, both not working, and a clothes lines outside for drying. The restrooms and showers were just nasty. It's located in town with no fencing around the park. An overnighter enroute maybe? - zookep9

The park has closed.
I called to make reservations and the message said they had retired and the park is closed. - sfrantz

This is a very nice small park, well taken care of. Large level gravel pads with manicured grass at each site. Lander is a small town with lots to see and do. Highly recommended. Better make reservations well in advance, if possible. - User3654

Nice little park. Very clean and well kept. Each site has a picnic table. Lovely area overlooking a golf course. - phyllen

This is an OK park and we had a good site. The wifi was pretty good on my phone, couldn't connect with my computer. Utility placement is inconvenient--sewer so far forward we had to wait till pulling out to use it. Water and electric at front--they offer use of extension electric cords and water hose to those who need it. Grass needs watering. - John and Carol

Had reservations but still took a while to get checked in. Nice site after moving to second site, first one had trees on both sides way to close to coach. Entrance to park narrow and steep with a tight turn but fine once you got up the hill. Friendly staff and grounds were well maintained. Stayed two nights. - Dedra C

Had site GB9. There are sites to the immediate left which makes leaving extremely difficult as you need to leave to the left. Close to town. Sites are level. Staff is friendly and helpful. Laundry and bathrooms and very clean with the bathrooms being very private. There are 3 washers and dryers. Dryers run for 45 minutes but if you have a heavy cotton load will not get dry. 30 amp outlet was up down which kept me from using my surge protector. Stopped because I needed to do laundry. I prefer the exclusion of State and Federal parks, I would not stay here again. - Poe Dog

This was my first experience dry camping, which I was a little apprehensive about. After seeing the gorgeous scenery and private and secluded sites, I knew that I had nothing to worry about!
There are two separate camping areas within the state park. We camped at the second one, which was past the visitor and information center. The first cg was very small with just a few sites. Those sites ran parallel along the interior roads.
We camped here two nights on our way north to the Grand Tetons, then Yellowstone and finally the Canadian Rockies. My husband and I both agreed we should have stayed longer, we loved it that much! The campground is quite small, and most sites can accommodate just tents or small rvs. Thankfully we found one of the few spots that would work for our 32 foot long class A. After backing in, there still was plenty of room to park my car in front of our rig. No hook ups, but there is fresh water from a hand pump.
Where to start? Well, as I said, the views of the mountains and canyon are gorgeous! A rapidly moving river runs thru the campground, you can hear the sound of running water thru out the park, which I just loved. We enjoyed the great hiking trails. (The swinging bridge to reach them was a bit unnerving to me!)
Super quiet, mostly tenters when we were here. They do allow you to run a generator, which we did when we needed to make morning coffee, use the microwave, etc. Fresh water is available, no flush toilets though. The vault toilets were pretty nasty, tons of flies.
Super quiet and nice and dark at night! I slept better than I had in ages! Park rangers are very friendly and helpful. My husband asked if there was a dump station in the area, and a ranger told us of one in town, which was free to boot!
We would love to return here some day if ever in the area again, and would stay even longer! - fly girl

If you're in a big rig, don't even bother. We have a 40ft combo with only a 23ft TT and did not even attempt to back into one of the few spots that looked as if it *might* accomodate our set up. Instead, since it was off season, we parked in one of the parking lots. It worked out fine and the rangers didn't hassle us or anything, but it was less than ideal. That said, this state park is not to be missed if you're in the area, simply because of the cool geologic wonders of the sinks and the rise. Maybe visit the park as a day trip from one of Lander's other RV parks! - ringworm

Such a treat, this little state park. Interesting trails and visitor center, very quiet campground (except for the lovely roar of the river), and some of the most unusual geology you'll ever camp next to. This is our idea of camping. But it's tiny. We have a 25' Class C and arrived at 4PM mid-week to find pretty much one of the only spots we'd fit in (and the CG was pretty empty). Not a big-rig friendly place, but there was a very skilled 5th wheel driver pulled into one of the sites. Come early, find a site, and enjoy the scenery. - JCLC

A nice place. The sites are a little tight for us (40' w/pkup) but it worked. WiFi was good when it worked but it did work all the time. - piclif

The grounds were well kept and the management helpful. Although it is on Hwy 789 the traffic slows down at night so road noise was not an issue. - Travelyn4U

Our host was very friendly and helpful, but the park is only OK. Sites are all gravel with trees between. The trees severely limit RV space; either slides or awning, but not both. The trees also limit satellite reception. Sites are too short to accommodate RV plus toad without disconnecting. Wifi is available only in the office. The fenced dog run is unusable but there is a grassy tent area below the RV sites where dogs can be walked. - Just Dave

Perfect side. Immaculate. Little out of the way, you definitely need a car, nothing within several miles. Wide sites, all back ins, with excellent hook ups. - JeffK

This park is good for an overnight stop. Very quiet. It's located off the main road, there aren't any signs leading you there so it might be hard to find without GPS. There is a sign near the office asking that you not park on the grass. No problem, since there isn't any. The very friendly owner checked us in gave us a site close to the office to ensure wifi for us. As other reviewers have stated there is some deferred maintenance. We'd stay here again if in the area. - Recycled

We were very happy to get a pull through full-hookup site on short notice when we left Dubois (about 1.25 hours west) due to a fire pre-evacuation notice. Call for full directions when getting close, it's a little off the main drag. The accommodating owner/manager stayed late for our arrival and gave us a full orientation. There were many welcome shade trees (it was hot!) and very close to our site, but not a problem for our motorhome with no slide-outs. We would not have been able to put out our canopy, though. The gravel/dirt site was level and required no blocks. The electric power was strong and consistent and the modern electric tower was nicely high enough to allow the surge guard use. The water was of good pressure, clean, and decent tasting. Sewer hookups were easily accessible. WiFi signal seemed strong, but the amount of traffic seemed to overwhelm the system in the evening. Verizon cell service was good. There were two nice grassy areas for dogs, which were clean due to the many reminder signs to pick up after your dog. The park has made an effort also in this desert area to brighten the landscape with pretty watered flowers at each pull-through site and other areas near the entrance. The bathrooms were very clean, spacious, well-lit. Showers also very clean, $1 for 10 minutes with water-flow reducing shower heads. The laundry was wonderful, 13 regular washing machines, 2 oversize commercial washing machines, 8 big dryers, lots of folding space, modern vending drink machine, all in a spacious, swamp-cooled room. Lots of other nice RVs here, and the park seemed safe and quiet. A mosquito spraying truck rolled through in the evening. The RV sites are next to the same-owner storage facility. Not a fancy park, but totally more than adequate as a stopover. The owners have obviously made a lot of effort, focusing on important functional and hygienic improvements. Remember this is a desert area when wishing for lush landscaping. - corglet

Must have recently changed hands. Sites are dirt and not clean. Lots of weeds and many dead trees. Garbage dumpster was over flowing and looks very bad. Wi-Fi not good at last few sites and no cable or major networks available with regular antenna. Very dusty from people driving through park including park personnel on golf carts. They also drive very fast...
Manager was very friendly but over whelmed.
