Water/Elec RV Sites @ Bighorn River
Near the Little Big Horn River
It was a great fishing camp that even had a fly shop! There is plenty of shade, and the spots are substantial. Unfortunately, the fly shop was not open while we were there, but we plan to return and take advantage of some great fishing next year and will likely try this fishing camp again. The two bath/shower rooms are similar to what you likely have at home, with a sink, shower, and toilet. The restrooms could have used a good cleaning and some paint, but I have seen much worse. They will likely get a bit busy during the high season with only two showers & bathrooms for what looks to be thirty to forty campsites. This camp is not right on the river. It is a little over a mile away, but it didn't seem to be an issue for those who were there to fish the river.

Nice shady site under cottonwoods. Close access to the Bighorn River. I'd recommend to anyone!

Camping on the Bighorn
Well located place and big campground. However, the tents area was close to the entrance road and a bit annoying at night with cars coming back late at night. In addition, the toilets were not so clean and their condition could be much better.

Solid site. We would return.
Quiet and peaceful site with easy access and nice grass back-in RV spots. Multiple restrooms with showers were available. Cabins looked quaint and clean, as another option. A short bit from the Highway (30 minutes), a friendly and helpful staff.

I arrived late in the dark. But they were ready to help me out and make me welcomed.
