The campground has 19 sites that have been upgraded to water & electric, all sites have picnic table and fire ring, some have shade structures, and some have a wind fence.
More shade structures are needed, as there are no trees over 6ft. tall for shade.
Campground is first come, first serve, with self registration, which is a poor system, as locals hold sites, when we arrived, there was a dirt bike parked in one site, no tent, no camper, just a registration envelope tab on the site post, which may or may not indicate actual payment.
The site we finally got, had a pontoon boat parked on it when we arrived, it had been paid for one day, and was expired, after getting a hold of the host, we found that the boat belonged to folks on another site. Rather than paying for more days, they were gracious enough to move the boat & let us have the site. The site was rather unlevel, but the water & electric worked well.
Dump station & water fill available.
As it is the only campground nearby with any hookups, we would stay here again. We camped at Horseshoe Bend Campground in a Motorhome.
We spent a week camping at the Horseshoe Bend Campground and boating on Bighorn Lake/Yellowtail. The improved sites are very nice. They are level with a nice crushed gravel pad. The shade arbors are very large and well built. The water is of good quality and pressure. No need to worry about the electric hookup having issues as they are new and well built. They do have several plants and trees planted with sprinklers feeding them. The only issues to be aware of is there is no cell phone service or reception, the mosquitoes will carry you off each night if you didn't bring strong bug spray and you have to be aware of how you are backing your rig into spots. Pay close attention to the top of the shade arbor and your camper. Not all of the sites are set up where it will be an issue, but ours could have been if we weren't paying attention when we were parking. We will gladly go back next year. The road into Lovell from 212 South of Laurel is wonderful especially when compared with the road into Fort Smith or the Tongue. We camped at Horseshoe Bend Campground in a Motorhome.
Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $15.00
We camped here over Labor Day weekend. It's the second busiest weekend of the year for them. We had to take one of the free sites the first night then moved to one of the improved sites the next morning. Although the area is scenic, it's also kind of desolate. This is probably a great place for water sports, but we didn't find it very attractive. We camped at Horseshoe Bend Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful campground in Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area. 19 of the sites have been enlarged and upgraded with water and 50 amp electric. These large sites are gravel and level and will easily accommodate a big rig. The upgraded sites are $15 and the remaining, though smaller, sites are free. Dump station in campground. No bath house but clean restrooms. All amenities are available 14 miles away in Lovell, WY. Very quiet and peaceful. We'll stay there again sometime. We camped at Horseshoe Bend Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
