Older park so narrower sites. Small but pretty park. Lots of flowers. Owner helped us park and trimmed branches trying to avoid scratching our paint and not breaking the branches. - USA#1 RVr

As another reviewer stated, you park in your spot right off the street. That does make road traffic right there, but it slowed down considerably at night. There was a little patch of grass on the side, which is nice to put your chairs on. However, it is tight, so you do not necessarily want to sit out. It is a small park. The owner was very nice and did try to make us comfortable. She keeps the place clean and pretty. We just stopped there for a visit to the hot springs, so it was a quick night in and out. We did get satellite even with a shade tree and her wi-fi worked pretty well. - dorcol

Small park convenient to state park and down town. Stay here was very pleasant. No fire ring though. - Ronnie67

Friendly management in this small campground. Park lacks shade around the perimeter and lots are gravel with no grass. Park has very high water pressure so you'll need a regulator. There are few pull through sites for larger rigs (45 ft.) Although the park is near the roadway, it is quiet at night. WiFi service is fair. - KE Hogan

Just spent one night but nice park. We have a 36' motorhome which is about as big as you can get into the park. When we arrived they did lead us to our space and helped guide us in. That was nice and probably needed in that they ended up cutting a few tree branches to get us into our spot. Office staff were very nice and friendly. Gave us some good ideas on things to see. Used the laundry and it was clean and nice. - Dougie

This is an old KOA campground with old infrastructure. It is very close to maneuver & parking a tow can be an issue. However, the owners were very accommodating. We arrived without reservations; some shifting around occurred so we could be accommodated. The site we were told to go into was an extremely tight squeeze but we managed. Trying to park our tow was initially problematic. However, we were later notified that we had been given the incorrect site # & could over over 1 slot, if we wished. We elected to stay where we initially set up but were given the adjacent site for our tow parking. The owners made every effort to make our stay satisfactory - bnkelly

The Basics: Gravel roads and sites, tight turns, and spaces right on top of one another. The rate has a 10% tax you can do the math for what you'll end up paying. No discounts available. They have picnic tables that are all in need of paint and or replacement. They have a fire ring that right next to the next space's coach, can you scorched RV? The power hook ups have good power but they box is so close to the ground you have to put a very sharp bend in your power cord to hook up. The sewer hook up is at the rear of the site and required 30' of hose to reach (I only had 25') They have 5 washing machines of which only 4 work and none have hot water, 4 dryers of which only one works. One of my pet peeves it will cost you $.25 for 2.5 minutes of water in the shower. It is also right next to the train track and road. However the road and train noise is not that great an impact. The water is very hard. Their web site has the wrong prices published. On the plus side they have free Wifi that is pretty fast. So as an RV park it's not as dumpy as some I stayed at but it's over priced for what it is. The rate you pay is pretty much what you'll pay at most high end RV resorts with none of the amenities. However if you factor in the fact that they have two large hot springs pools that are included in the price and most hot springs charge $10-15 per person the cost is reasonable. If we come here again I'm up in the air if well stay here again. - pumper9x9

Very small sites; dirt with some rocks. Neighbor's sewer was right outside our door. Management did NOT enforce occupancy rules or quiet hours. Up to seven cars of adults with children and dogs spent the two days we were here, partying until very early in the morning! The only reason we would never return to this park is the size of the sites and the non-enforcement of their own published rules!
The on-site hot springs (the reason we stayed in Thermopolis, WY) were large, clean and nice. - TXMeltons

we stayed here a month. We have visited here off and on over the last 19 years and were so disappointed to see its present condition. Made reservations, but were told they didn't have them--this story was told to many of the visitors I talked to over the month. Usually the CG is nearly full all the time with folks staying a month or the summer to enjoy the water.
About cried when we saw the condition of our site. Dried out foxtails and tall weeds. Anyone bringing a pet here should google "foxtailes can kill your dog" to see what to do to protect your pet. Not much maintainace going on here. They owners had fired the grounds keeper. Lawn is only water at the entrance and in front of the owners' house which they spend all their time remodeling. The pool was only cleaned twice in the month we were there, They have no printed CG rules and people let dogs and kids wander everywhere. The CG was never full. even over 7/4. Don't think we'll ever come back. - bilmo

We stayed in October and there was no camp host. We did not have trouble seeing the campgrounds or the signage, there is an upper and a lower. We camped in the lower. It was nearer the river and had a great view of the canyon wall. There was only one other camper, a small travel trailer.
There is nothing here in the way of hookups. We did not use the outdoor toilet. We stayed so my husband could fish the next morning. He was told by another fisherman that the key to the canyon is a red copper John fly. The water is clear and beautiful.
The stars were magnificent. We don't watch TV when we are camping and do not care about reception.
Still, it's pricey because you basically get what you would get in the national forest. But you have to put up with big trucks and the trains that come through the tunnel. One reviewer said the trucks stop at 8p.m. They do not. I was up way past 10 p.m and they just kept coming. It's not worth the price. I don't even know if anyone is collecting the fee but we paid anyway. - KSum

GPS has troubles finding the correct spot. Signage is definitely an issue. We came from the north, via St Hwy 120. We passed through 3 tunnels as we approached Boysen St. Pk. Right after the 3rd tunnel is the 1st Boysen Pk campground (Lower Wind River). The sign is on the right, parallel to the road, so hard to notice. If you turn in here, it's better to approach on the left of the Boysen Pk sign for better access to the road into the Park. If you travel down (south) further a little ways you will come to the 2nd sign (Upper Wind River), also parallel to the road. This seems to be the the most scenic, with canyon views on both sides of the several campgrounds. Further south is a sign, facing the road, for 2 more campgrounds (Tamarisk & Bannan?). These appear to be not so green, very open. The Wind River sites have grass and trees and are closer to the Shoshoni River. Very helpful camp host. After Sept. 15th they don't take reservations, it's first come, first served. Upper Wind River filled by the end of the day. Level sites, with lovely views of the canyon, with a river running by the campground. They have well watered grass and trees. Only the reservable sites have been assigned numbers. We didn't reserve because it was after Labor Day. They had lots of sites filled by the end of the day, but there were still some left when we left the next day. We walked up a path toward the nearby earthen dam. - TJElser

We paid the out-of-state resident fee for a basic site (dry camping). There are a few campground locations for this state park, but I think the most popular are the green and shady Upper and Lower River Campgrounds. We pulled into the Lower River Campground (northernmost one) and selected a site that wasn't reserved - there seems to be plenty to choose from at the end of August, around half the sites available. We intended to only stay for 2 nights as a stopover, but since we weren't in any rush we ended up staying an entire week since the scenery was so beautiful and peaceful here. The weather was pretty hot but there are lots of shade trees to help if you pick the right site - ours was right next to the river and enjoyed the view of the water and opposing cliffs. We work online so Verizon signal is a big deal - we were barely able to get 1 bar of voice and 3G signal (sometimes LTE with our booster) but only at the very southern-most site in the campground, otherwise my phone read "no service." I believe you could probably get a little better signal at the Upper River Campground where it's a little more crowded. - Sara C.

Perfect side. Immaculate. Little out of the way, you definitely need a car, nothing within several miles. Wide sites, all back ins, with excellent hook ups. - JeffK
