If your mission is to spend as much time on the water as possible, Lower Wind River Campground at the old Boysen Dam is your best bet for staying close to the action. Set up shop on this prime riverside real estate, and all you'll need to worry about in the morning is making sure your boat shoes aren't tied together. The elements can be a bit harsh in Wind River Canyon, so definitely prepare for some sun and wind... but when you factor in the convenience, killer scenery, and legit chance to see the resident herd of Bighorn Sheep, we'd say its pretty “dam” worth it!

We stayed at the Lower Wind River Campground which has a stunning view. However at $40/night (for non residents) I can't recommend it. The sites are very small and have grass but no plants or rocks to separate them. Cottonwood trees do provide shade for some sites. it is next to the river, not the reservoir and there is a very steep bank that prevents you from getting to the water. No electric sites and vault toilets that are clean but dingy. A bit disconcerting that the ladies vault toilet has the local police phone number on the door. A street light in the campground and noise from the very close road made sleeping hard.

Pulled in late and found a nice site by the river. Sweet little spot, but next to highway. No traffic at night, but truck traffic noise in the morning.
