2 Parks near Ranchester, Wyoming
Oct 2010 - $11.00
A very quiet park with some long pull throughs and a few sites right on the small creek that flows through the park. The road is somewhat narrow through the park for a big rig, but doable by going slow and swinging wide on the turns. Verizon was just OK and satellite dish worked fine from our pull through site on the north side of the park right along side the creek. One site overlooks a small dam (20 feet from the site) where we saw some fly fishermen catching and releasing good size trout. One other RV and one tent the night we stayed. We would stay again. - run2

What a nice area to camp. This place is just inside Ranchester with only a small, brown sign to show the turn. Once you get to it, though, it's fantastic. The campground was deserted, we were the only ones there so the quiet was great. The river goes around three sides of the campground so it seems like your on an island. Campground was clean, though primitive, but we like that sort of camping. At only $9 a night, it was the best deal around for our 1 night. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay from one to three nights. Great place - Element tent

This state historic site is a beautiful park-like setting next to the Tongue River and was the site of the Battle of Tongue River in 1865. The majority of the park is surrounded by old, large cottonwood trees; however there are several sites that are in the open. The park does not take reservations, so with the first come/first served you can pick the site that suits you best. Most of the sites are back-in and three sites are pull-thrus. We picked a pull thru that would easily accommodate two forty-footers plus toads. We had no problem using our TV/internet satellite dish here. This campground is dry camping only and we encountered tenter's, small vans, and motorhomes. This is a great location just a few minutes off the interstate for a one-night stay or a several-night stay in order to explore the mountains to the west. - flrvers466

The manager was very nice. The location is in town, but ok. A bit run down. You must like trains if you stay here. 24 hours a day! Didn't bother me that much. However, my issue came from whoever it is that is the caretaker of the park. My second night there I lost my water. It was on the cold side so I switched to the tank. Next day, still no water. Cable is $2 a day. I have satellite radio so wasn't sure I'd use it. Initially I hooked it up and did a 30min channel scan, didn't watch it again until I wanted to see the presidential debate... Turned it on only to find no cable. I had told the manger I would pay the cable if I used it. The next morning I went out to see what was wrong with the water situation. I found the water had been turned off and the cable unconnected! I left a message for the manager to give me a call, never received a response. Nice town, but this really downed my stay :o( - Randell Tober

Two spaces (19 & 20) are great for motorhomes towing and allow toad to be left connected or connected without moving coach. Sites are gravel with two concrete strips for vehicle tires. Grassy strip with wooden picnic table between sites. 50 AMP, water, sewer. wifi worked good. Sewer was below grade which allowed good draining of sewer hose. Paid extra $2 for 30 cable channels although some channels were grainy. No fenced dog park but large grassy area for walking dogs. Lots of wild bunnies. Security light near site 20 was either burned out or turned off. Some train noise but not bad. One private toilet/sink/shower room each for men and women. Rate paid included $2 for cable. - Markk

Stayed 1 night here. Pull through sites were green grass with concrete strips (like new) running down the center for you trailer wheels. Sites were pretty close together, side by side, and not angled. Pull through sites were on the south side but you had to drive over a half-sized curved curb when you exited (just go slow). We stayed connected to our 34' foot 5th wheel.
Quiet park. Water pressure good. Electricity fine.
Sewer hookups were in the ground and in a covered box. The box wasn't large enough to allow us to put in the screw-in connector and the right angled connectors we all have on the ends of our sewer hose. So we didn't use the screw-in connector, we just put the angled end of the hose in the hole and it didn't seem to splash out. - Pat Engle
