6 Parks near Shell, Wyoming
Aug 2016 - $37.00
This is rather a pretty little park. It's located in the country in a nice setting. The downside is that it is located right by highway 14. This is a very busy road during the day that includes lots of motorcycles. Thankfully, it quiets down at night and we were able to sleep with our windows open. The owners are friendly and helpful. It's a bit overpriced for 30 amp but it's less expensive than the other parks in the area. Sites would be very close if the campground was full which it wasn't when we were there. They advertise big rig access but from our experience that is only true when the park is fairly empty. We would have needed some fancy footwork to get in and out of our site if we had neighbors. They only offer 30 amp electric service. It was pretty hot during the day so we had to police our A/C units and run only one at a time. All sites are gravel. In fact, the park is basically a large gravel lot with utilities placed as site markers. Utilities worked fine although the water had an irony smell. Some sites have shade and some are full sun. We were not able to get Directv in our site due to trees. The WII FI worked ok. It could be slow, and we got kicked off several times. There is no Verizon coverage. Even with the park's booster we only had 1X. It is close to Big Horn and all it has to offer. We would probably stay here again but when it isn't as hot. - Free

We stayed here in our 34' motorhome enroute to Yellowstone. The park is mostly gravel with some grass. Sites are very close together but we were the only ones there so it made no difference. Easy entry and exit. Utilities were fine and there was a picnic table. Nice view of mountains, sunset and a small creek. Staff were very friendly and helpful. It is right by the road but traffic totally dried up at dark. WiFi worked fine. Overall good place to stay. - rudyhehn

Great park. This park has gravel and grass sites. We were with friends and we were able to face our trailers toward each other with plenty of room in between to open awnings. We used a dish for TV and picked it up just fine. The owners have a Verizon cell phone booster, but it doesn't work for AT&T. The owners are very nice and will work with you if you need anything special. The park has a small store and an area with a pool table and TV if you need it. They also have cabins that look very nice but we didn't use them. They are at the foot of the Bighorn mountains. We will stay here again. - radargil

This is actually about 1 acre that the owner turned into an RV Park?
I was woken this morning by sprinklers. Rotary sprinkler washing my MH. Not happy at all. Both side at places over 8' need my ladder to dry off before water spotting. The water here is really hard, so beware!!!!!!!!
I now have a big mud puddle at my steps, oh joy.
Drive ways are loose rock and dirt. There a dirt road in front of 5 of the sites we were in one of them. Lots of dust from the neighbors using it.
Lots of trees for shade. Forget about Satellite or over the air TV, No cable TV.
The laundry is not on site but across the HWY.
Lots of Train Noise. Horns and coupling and uncoupling of cars.
Hwy noise is not too bad during the night, but still there.
There are better option in the small town.
Good for a one night stop at best. - traveler1952

This is a small 15 site campground located on one of the several routes to Yellowstone & Grand Teton NPs. It shaded, grassy sites vary in size, but several will accommodate the largest rigs. We stayed in 43' Fifth wheel, towing a Honda CR-V, pulled by a Dodge Ram dually measuring 80'. They have no cable or OTA TV, but there's a Red Box 2 blocks away. It's nice park with have basic full hookup amenities. - Dngreen51

This campground is not really what we think of when we say "campground". It is a large lot with small full hook up sites very tightly placed to maximize space. Our 40' motor home was about max for this facility. Tight getting in and out with tree limbs in play. We did find this campground to be very quiet, in an interesting little town with a nice walking path immediately adjacent to the grounds that provides a great opportunity for a 3-mile walk through Greybull's main street. All utilities were good but be sure you have a water pressure regulator!! For the pet owners; dogs are not allowed to be "walked" in the park. This was made very clear on check in. BUT, with the walking path and riverbank less than 30 feet from our coach, walking the dog was not an issue. Owners seemed very helpful and proximity to Cody and Yellowstone makes this a worthwhile stop. Big rigs be careful! - Beech35p

This has been a must stop RV park for us for 10 years now. Our first time here was before the current owners and during every stop since then we have seen constant improvements. This is a small park and the owners are very "hands on" and it shows. I don't know what else they can do to improve this park. As usual, we had a pull-through, full hookup site on a cement pad with a cement patio and wrought iron furniture. All sites have 60+ channel cable TV. They give you a remote, you set your TV to cable and channel 3, and scan for the channels. Because the park has lots of fairly mature trees, there may be only a couple sites that are satellite friendly. The free Wi-Fi is for e-mail and surfing only. For anything that demands more bandwidth, you can pay for the advanced service. Of the 33 "regular" RV sites, about 10 are pull-through and the rest are back-in or pull-in. There are also 7 long term sites, 9 tent sites, and 3 cabins at the north end of the park. Finally, there are a few deluxe cabins - two behind the office and one at the south end of the park. There is a nice size, heated pool, a playground, a fenced pet area, etc. The building contains the office, a store, older, but very clean men's and women's bathrooms and showers, and an 8 machine ($2 per) laundry. They used to have a small cafe but always had trouble keeping it staffed (very small available work pool here). They still fix and cook 18" pizzas. I saw recycling cans for at least plastic, glass, and aluminum. Because they are a bit older than me, I wonder how much longer these two wonderful people will be able to keep this great park going. - Jerry S

This is one of the better RV Parks we have stayed in. The staff is very friendly, there are concrete slabs, and trees are each campsite. Trash cans are provided and emptied by park employees. There is an on-site restaurant, recycling bins, etc. This RV Park is about the only thing that Greybull, Wyoming has going for it as there is nothing else... - chrisnr1

We spent several nights here while exploring the general area, staying in one of 2 deluxe patio pullthru sites. Lots of space in our "front yard", and a delightful bench swing to boot. Good points: friendly, helpful owners; very clean facilities; good sightseeing info that the owners have put together; easy to find. Not so good: though it worked out fine, front row pullthru sites lead directly on to a city street, with only a chain (& no lock) in front. Easy enough to get out of, though could be a bit tight for longer rigs, but it didn't feel as secure as most campgrounds do. I guess Greybull isn't a high crime district. RR noise evident, from several blocks away, but road noise definitely not a problem. Good base camp for the Bighorn basin, and looked quite a bit better than the other campground here. - PokyRVer

We have friends in Basin and knew about this park from previous visits. The owner and manager are great people. We have been here for one month and staying until after Labor Day. Monthly rate is $400(includes electric and WiFi). Not sure what the rate is if you come in from the road for a night or two. Only has one 50 amp site. Quiet even though you are on the main road through town. - ob's place

Prune Creek is one of 4 campgrounds easily accessed for us bigger rigs on Highway 14, East side of the Bighorn Mountains. Sites are level; vault toilets with water pumps between sites, no electric, no cell service, intermittent satellite service ... True 'camp' experience with good fishing & hiking. Senior passes (1/2 price) are honored on Bighorn Natl Forest camping. Supplies & eats are available from 3 lodges nearby. Other CG are Sibley just 1 mile East of Prune Creek and only one that has some electric sites; approx 2 miles West (just after Burgess Jct) and on 14A is North Tongue .. 1 mile on gravel but big rig accessible; and approx 4 miles westward past 14-14A junction on Highway 14 is Owen Creek - a smaller CG but just off highway and a couple of larger sites. Enjoy a primitive campsite in a bigger rig in these 4 campgrounds. - evadu

This was a very nice Forest Service campground. We had reservations for site 16 which had electric service and some shade. All the sites had a fire pit, grill, picnic table and lantern stand. There was a nice trail around the lake. Other than that, the only other trails were snowmobile and cross country ski trails that weren't really walking trails but would do. The pit toilets were the cleanest and nicest smelling pit toilets I have ever seen (and smelled). The gravel road around the campground can get a little dusty. One of the nice things about this place was that all four days of our visit the temperature was in the low 70s while down in Dayton and Ranchester it was in the upper 90s. The climb from Dayton is steep but there are a number of pull-outs, both uphill and downhill. - troutslayer

Rate includes discount for America the Beautiful pass ($8) and an extra $4 for electrical. We found the upper/right side of the campground to have the most room for big rigs. Sites are all back in, have a picnic table, fire ring, and BBQ stand. Firewood was available for $5 bundle. There is also a boat launch and picnic area below the campground sites. We took a great walk around the lake to find the geocache; other campers were fishing or out in their canoes. This park sits at 7,900 ft elevation on the Big Horn Scenic Byway. We came from the west so climbed at least 6,000 ft in elevation to the top of the pass. It is a beautiful, scenic drive. Be prepared for slow moving trucks, big rigs, and don't hesitate to pull over if you are heating up! We'll definitely stay here again. - DiplomatTraveler

Nice Forest Service campground. The lake is a short walk from the campsites. Long campsites, some closer together than others. Well marked Cross country ski trails next to campground made for excellent hiking trails. Forest Service Dump Station about 5 miles away near Burgess Junction. We would definitely stay here again. - Schooner50
