Camping For Only $10 At Beautiful Wyoming River Camp
Along the route from Cody to Yellowstone a variety of campgrounds abound offering inexpensive options with great views. Amongst those Big Game Campground, a seasonally open campground with amazing river access and the wooded feel of a remote mountain campground.
I found this campground when exploring the area and was instantly drawn in by the large shaded sites and how comfortable and secluded they felt. Each site feels removed from the next as they are all built into little burrows and once you park your vehicle you feel very private.
Toward the front of the campground all sites are heavily wooded and toward the back they are somewhat open to the river. Absolutely beautiful views of the mountains and the sound of water around you is very relaxing. The only negative being that some of the river sites also have been barricaded off after recent undercutting of the shoreline by the river ways.
For those who enjoy fishing this is a perfect location as there are miles of shoreline which can be accessed from this point.
Price point is very reasonable at only $10 and with both hard sided RVs and tents welcome this is a very appealing campground, unlike some a littler further toward Yellowstone which are limited to only hard sides.
Campsites each include standard amenities of picnic tables and fire rings along with mandatory use bear boxes. There was a nice introduction to bears for those unfamiliar at the pay kiosk (cash only). I suggest reading this and becoming familiar before exploring the area or camping here.
At this location I did have cellular signal on AT&T although it was pretty limited.
Be prepared and bring everything you need. There are very limited stops from Cody to Yellowstone and prices at this few locations are much higher than in the Cody community.
Bring your water shoes if you intend on wading in the water. Although most of the banks are covered with smooth river rocks some broken limbs are in the water with sharp jagged edges.
