The cabin was great and clean. The price for the night was high for the area and no place to eat. So make sure you bring food or eat frozen pizza at the bar on the campground. We had a camping stove so we made spaghetti and sauce.

This campground is awesome! Margie and Terry (the owners) are fantastic, and go out of their way to make sure that the guests are happy! We stayed for about two weeks doing geology field work, and it was so comfortable we were so sad to leave! The front office is very comfortable and a great place to get some work...

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...

Margie and Terry Triplett are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to make their guests feel comfortable. They took a property that had been neglected, and through their hard work and vision, turned it into a very cozy, and homey spot. The public bathrooms are spotless as are the cabins, which have been updated with charming log furniture....

To call this little gem a campground is a dis-service. Not only do they have campsites, but they also have wonderful little cabins. We stayed in one and it was spotless inside and mored than adequate in space. The owners treat you more like long lost friends than "customers". We had great conversations with both that made the place seem...

Scenic location in tiny Shell Wy where highway 14 exits the Big Horn Mountain's via spectacular Shell Canyon. Shell is a decidedly un-crowded and "non commercial" taste of "real Wyoming". Since "Dirty Annie's" restaurant closed this spring (2016), the general store at the camp ground has become an informal community gathering point. I spent two enjoyable early summer evenings talking...

This cabin was just what we needed on our move from Boston to Oregon! We took Rt. 14 through Bighorn and the drive was absolutely spectacular: highly recommend. The owners were welcoming without being overbearing, and the campground is set right near a beautiful field with a creek running through. Another perk is that it is dog friendly: our 90...
