How about ditching the pavement and getting down and dirty with your feet on the earth and your head in the trees. Sound good? Then Cottonwood Campground is the place for you! This undeveloped spot in the pines has some comforts so you won’t be getting too primitive, but there is still plenty of wilderness to make it feel like a proper camping trip. The Keyhole Reservoir is not easily accessed from here, so keep that in mind if you plan on a lot of lake action. Bring something to roast on the campfire, a lounge chair, and a book, then kick back and enjoy!

I stayed at Cottonwood Campground (part of Keyhole State Park) in April 2017. My timing was perfect as I literally had the entire campground to myself for several days. A ranger I spoke with told me the campground would start getting busy soon as the spring weather arrived.

The spot that I was able to camp overlooked the lake from a rocky outcropping and was surrounded by trees. I had deer wander through the campground each day, while ducks, geese, and even pelicans were visible in the lake surrounding the campsite.

This was my second stay at Keyhole State Park, though the first at this particular campsite. My experiences so far have been good here.

I paid $10/night as a WY resident, while the non-resident rate is $17/night.
