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

Park owner is very nice and cares about your stay. The pull-throughs come off the highway toward the park. There is some highway noise, but we have heard worse. There is a McDonalds within walking distance. We would stay here again for a night stopover. - dwade

Great little stop right in downtown Thermopolis. Yes, it's right next to the highway but traffic dies by 8pm and it's easy sleeping. This is an older park but the restrooms were immaculate. Not a resort, but a great place for a short stay. I will definitely stay here again. - ldukeb

Park is a little cramp when it is full. Some RVs were sticking out into the roads although our 36 ft 5th wheel fit in fine. The service provided was fantastic. When we pulled in, they met us at our truck and guided us to our site. Told us we could check in later after we were set up. They have wi-fi figured out - they block streaming sites so no one hogs the bandwidth. But this also caused an issue for us since we use comcast for email. So, they went and added the site to the whitelist so we could get email while there. That is customer service !!! - akeller156

We stayed in Thermopolis for three days. The campground has lots of trees and shade, and is a little bit tight for a larger unit. Satellite would work on some of the sites, but the park has an adequate cable service with cable box integrated onto the electrical pedestal. Power was good and the pedestal was well located at the rear of the space. Sewer access on this site was slightly below ground level, and need some maintenance.
This is the best available park in Thermopolis, and is a fair value. Seasonal sites are available. - Sully and Gun

This is a small rv park, but we had no trouble with our 30 ft fifth wheel. The owner and staff are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. The owner even cut a piece of wood for us to help fix our camper. The park is moments from the three hot springs in town (one is free!), a fantastic dinosaur museum, and a fun white water rafting outfit. Wi-Fi, TV, and cell worked fine. I would highly recommend this park. - Luv2RV4fun

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

Old and tired. At check in, our host endlessly apologized for the state of the grounds. Why draw attention to something that is obvious? Sites are close. Grounds are about as attractive as an ATV recreation track. Glad we were not here in the rain.
OK, that stated, if you want to visit the marvelous funk of Thermopolis, this is your place. We did the state park, home of the world's largest hot spring, and it was good, but this RV park has its own hot spring and pools. The pools are mineral laden and seem unclean but 1.3 million gallons of spring water flow through them each day. The water is hot and good. I often get a sketchy back from the agonies of setting up camp. 20 minutes in their pools and I was ready for Chubby Checker and the Twist.
Net net...stay here and enjoy, for one or two nights. - Elmo and Gracie

Owner was friendly, led us to our site and helped us park. This park is not big rig friendly. Seems to be a post, pole or tree on all the corners of every site. Sites are gravel and narrow but level. Site was not long enough for my 38' rig plus tow vehicle. No full-timers that I could see but tent campers are allowed. Sewer is at back of site, water pressure is strong, be careful! Interior roads are dirt and narrow.
Big plus is the onsite hot spring with 3 large pools to swim in.
There is a fairly busy train track, 50 yards from the back of the park, but as the train runs thru town, I think the other parks will have the same issue.
Owner advertises 12PM checkout but asked me (and 3 others campers that I asked) to be out by 9AM. - daviputnam

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
