A Cowboy breakfast is included in your stay. We are very quiet certified organic farm located 1/2 way between Powell Wyoming and Cody Wyoming just under the shadow of the Great Heart Mountain and about an hour from two Yellowstone Park Entrances (ie. East and Northeast Gates). Within 20 miles of wilderness and lots of outdoor activities. The campsite is part of a 450-acre Certified Organic Farm and Wild Nature in all directions. Creek runs through the property.

This sheepherders wagon was constructed in the late 1800's. It was pulled by two horses or mules with the sheep herder setting inside the wagon with the reins through the split entry door.  A lot of the ideas of the modern RV were first developed and tried in this home away from home.  One person and two dogs, two horses was all that was needed to care for a 1,000 to 1,500 head of sheep.  Life was simpler then.

Just phenomenal! Read the site carefully. This is “Frontier camping”. It’s not manicured like a KOA campground. It’s small. It’s quiet. It’s perfect.

This is a great experience for folks looking for a rustic, simple, nature-focused stay. The breakfast was tasty with pancakes, locally made sausage, and coffee. I highly recommend the Big Quiet if you want something different than the typical hotel experience.

I'll lean into the word rustic since nature is definitely doing its thing. The wagon had a notable mouse dropping smell that was hard to pinpoint. When I mentioned it to Rod he was very quick to clean the space but unfortunately the smell persisted. We only stayed two nights so I'm sure with more time they'll find the source.

The firepit is awesome and it was nice to have hot showers. Note that one morning the hot water ran out since I think many people went ahead of us. You should have an attitude of rolling with the punches :)

If you're a dog person then you'll likely enjoy the camp's dogs who are fun and love to play fetch, ball, etc. I look forward to coming back sometime!
