Description

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!

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.
