Street presentation needs improvement. Derelict 5er greets you at the check-in stop. Friendly staff. Back-in "view" sites have pedestal at the wrong end (had to borrow a 50 amp extension cord). Token landscaping with trees and adequate separation between units. Gravel sites are okay for big rigs. Restroom/showers are "private" and a quick glance suggested a clean and modern setup. Quiet location. We camped at Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Lander, WY, is a cute little town, nestled in a valley as you wander towards the Grand Tetons or Yellowstone. A must-visit is the Sinks Canyon State Park and experience "The Sink" and "The Rise" of the Popo Agie river. A visit to the Pioneer Museum on the north side of town (free admission) is interesting. Do ice cream at Ken and Betty's, downtown.

I'm not sure we're talking about the same park! Yes, the staff are excellent and very helpful. But the view is mostly of the car dealership and other businesses...mostly closed. The hills and mountains are in the distance.

There are numerous sites occupied by junk campers...the worst one at entrance. They claim to have a water park, but it appears to be only a fire hydrant type device that they turn on when necessary.

It is convenient to the area though. We camped at Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Tour the state park and the local museums. Very nice.

Interesting entrance way, sharp turns with a steep hill; but once into the park there is sufficient room to navigate a large rig (we have a 36' RV). The campground sets on a high bluff so the views are nice. I must comment on the Owner - she was constantly out on the grounds cleaning, watering, etc...nice to see and it shows. We camped at Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Small town with little to do in it. Like most of WY one must be prepared to drive long distances to stay entertained.

Not our favorite campground. After reading the other reviews on RV Park Reviews we felt this would be the place. The wifi really doesn't work. The grass between our site and others was not mowed. We originally had what appeared to be a pretty good site but they decided to change us to a "view" site. This was a pull in for a motorhome and so we were door to door with our neighbor but a whole ten feel apart. We were parked between two permanents. No cable. Park owner lives here and the area around their home is a pig sty. We have a 25 ft motorhome and can't wait to leave. Would not stay here again. We camped at Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Sinks Canyon State Park is interesting plus various hikes.

Overall a great campground with AWESOME views! Ask to be by the campsites overlooking the town with the view, amazing! Friendly/helpful management, clean showers and laundry. Space were smaller than we like due to our very active 2 dogs, but it worked out ok because the space next to us was empty. There were not fire pits at every site, so our 6 year old was a bit disappointed. We stayed overnight, and took in the sights at the local Sinks State Park. Great place, we would definitely go back! We camped at Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park, near level sites. Ours overlooked Lander. Setup is a little odd but works. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again if in the area. We camped at Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Facilities all worked as expected. Restrooms/showers were very well maintained. Park owners/staff were very helpful and friendly. Nice town and region. A few sites have a town view, but the road noise on the hillside offsets the view over the car dealership and the valley. Sites are a little narrower than we like, but adequate for a big rig with multiple slideouts. Biggest drawback was the number of dogs living/staying at the park and freely roaming loose. Reasonably well behaved dogs, but doing what dogs do: hanging out when BBQ'ing, sitting outside the door when cooking, dog poo on the doormat at the step and in the site (although the owners regularly pick up after their dogs), generally roaming our site and checking anything we're eating/drinking/doing. We camped at Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at Sleeping Bear every year for the last 8 years on our way into the area for hunting and on our way out of the area. Always clean and the folks are always nice. It is the best campground in the area. It is just off the road, up a hill to buffer the street noise. My hubby is a light sleeper and road noise bothers him. But at Sleeping Bear it is not an issue. We camped at Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground in a Truck Camper.

Nice spot on top of the hill over town. They offer a few sights with a grand view to the west for extra $. We were just overnight so we stayed in the middle. Gravel and some grass between sites. Pretty close together, but no worse than most. Restaurants within walking distance. Pretty nice town that we need to come back and explore. We camped at Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice and friendly staff. Older park with many long term residents. Fine for overnight or short term stay. Okay Wi-fi and fairly roomy lots. We camped at Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stopped here for one night. The owners were friendly. There are some sites with a wonderful view overlooking the city (we used a pull-thru site instead). The Wi-Fi worked great. The entrance was a bit intimidating with a bit of a hill, but we navigated that OK with the 35' motorhome. We camped at Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Wonderful Hosts/Owners. We stayed 3 nights. We had a wonderful scenic sight! Wonderful laundry and store. Showers and baths were individual and they had 5 or 6. They recycle! Exceptionally clean park and pet friendly! We loved it here! We camped at Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This park sits on top of a hill and given the incredibly windy weather and all of the construction work that they are doing at the park, we couldn't even open our windows without incurring LOTS of dirt and listening to daily ongoing construction equipment noise. The only view we got was of the dust storm and the equipment. Many of the "spots" are obviously long term residents so once again it appears that an RV park has become a trailer park. Several dogs were tied up outside their campers and others were running loose. The "dog run" was a 4x4 chained spot. When I asked about other places to walk my dogs, it was suggested that I walk them among the weed infested area at the back of the park. While the office area, laundry and front of the park is "inviting", the majority of the park appears trashy. We were able to get Wi-Fi and the office staff was somewhat helpful. The shortcut that we had decided to take through Lander was a mistake. What we gained in time, we spent in much higher gas and grocery prices. I wouldn't travel this way again. We camped at Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The sites are fairly good sized and capable of taking a motorhome and dingy. The park is clean and generally well maintained. There are too many permanent residents with some clutter. The management is very helpful. This is by far the best park in the Lander-Riverton area. The rate reflects a monthly rate. It has great views of Lander at night and the Wind River Mts. It is close to town. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

A very quiet park, trees and grass. We were on the back side and it had some very nice views. Owners were very helpful and nice. The bathrooms and showers were excellent and very clean. We saw the woman owner out picking up any little piece of trash...and there wasn't any to begin with and visiting with the people. WiFi worked well outside but not at all in the trailer, but that was OK and was no problem for us. They also had water jets on a concrete area for the kids to play in and I believe a nice play area for kids. We will stay here again. Price was with a Good Sam discount. We camped at Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.
