This place is beautiful! The lake was clear, the restrooms freshly cleaned everyday, the sites are decent sized and plenty of them available, our spot had plenty of shade. Both the Ranger and the Sheriff that came by were very nice and helpful with our questions about the area. We felt very safe knowing that they were close by, because accidents happen, especially when you are camping! The lady running the marina store was also very nice and helpful. We plan to make this our new yearly trip destination!! I highly recommend this place for family vacations. We camped at Boysen State Park in a Tent.
Tips for other Campers:
fishing, boating, swimming, sun bathing, rock collecting and best of all privacy!

Stayed at the Tamarask campground, which is a little rough. Rocky interior roads but nice site right on the reservoir. Pretty much had the loop to myself. When I stay at Boysen SP next time it will be on the Wind River, north of the reservoir. Looks more scenic with nicer-looking sites. We camped at Boysen State Park in a Motorhome.
I stumbled across this park. It is right on a beautiful little river, and listening to the river sounds at night while going to sleep was great. This is not a destination park, but is a very nice inexpensive sleepover place. It is on a highway, so road noises are present. There are no showers. We camped at Boysen State Park in a Travel Trailer.
Right on the lake. Our first time dry camping and it was great. Opened the windows and let the breeze cool us at night. It was fine. Lots of people here with boats. It's a huge lake. Very quiet and not developed. We camped at Boysen State Park in a Motorhome.
The setting is the beautiful Wind River Canyon. The downside, for tent camping, is that they water the grass with a sprinkler system and do not warn tent campers when they are making reservations. If the campground host hadn't warned us and told us to put pots weighed down with rocks on top of the sprinkler heads (which took some searching) we would have woken up to wet tents. This is an outhouse (pit toilet) only facility, there are no showers. There are water spigots. The mosquito's were horrible this year but that seems to be an exception, due to the wet spring. There are showers in town at the hot springs, the state bath house. We camped at Boysen State Park in a Tent.

Gravel sites, we camped in the Tamarask campground. Right on the water in a desert setting! Even with antennas, our Verizon aircard and phone did not work. Great place if you are self contained. We camped at Boysen State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Boysen encompasses a large lake with several campgrounds, we stayed at the Tough Creek facility, which is about 10 mi. N. of Shoshoni on Hwy 20. Tough Creek is a minimalist-type place, no hookups, lots of room, a few trees. Only facilities are tables, BBQs, toilets and a little playground equipment for kids. Primarily, this is a campground for boaters & fishermen, but it worked well as an overnight for us. They told us it can get hot, cold and windy, but was OK when we arrived in August. This is some pretty backwoods country, podner! We camped at Boysen State Park in a Motorhome.
