8 Scenic Campsites in Wyoming

Wyoming is home to some of the most diverse and expansive natural areas in the country. From family-friendly campgrounds at the base of the Grand Tetons to rough and rugged adventures in the backcountry of the Big Horn mountains, there is no shortage of scenic campsites in Wyoming. When driving through and looking to elevate your camp experience, here are our top recommendations for scenic campsites Wyoming. 

1. Colter Bay Campground 

One can never go wrong when camping in Grand Teton National Park, but Colter Bay’s location and proximity to lakes, hiking trails, and wildlife puts it at the top of our list. Because it is located within the national park, it is essential to book as early as possible to secure a spot. Camping here can be a bit more expensive than at a typical campground, but it’s easy to why shortly after arriving.

3. Boysen State Park

There are many factors as to why Boysen State Park is one of the most scenic campsites in Wyoming. First, it sits at the beginning of Wind River Canyon, one of the state’s prettiest and most scenic canyons. Second, it’s located on the Boysen Reservoir and river, which provide excellent opportunities for fly fishing & relaxing. If weather is cooler during your stay, head through the canyon to the town of Thermopolis, about 20 minutes away. The area is home to the world’s larget mineral hot spring and multiple commercial hot spring pools.

4. Porcupine Campground 

Located in the Big Horn Mountains near Lovell, Porcupine Campground is situated at the west entrance of one of the most scenic drives in the state, Route 14. The campground is also the trailhead to Porcupine Falls, which is just a short hike away from each site. It’s important to note that the campground and road are only open in the summer months. Don’t forget to visit Big Horn Canyon while in the area, and scenic red-rock national recreation area that is sure to impress.

5. Big Horn National Forest 

There are endless options to explore and find campsites in the Big Horn National Forest. The high elevation and open field often allow for scenic camping with grand views of the surrounding landscape. There are hundreds of miles of forest service and OHV trails to explore. Be sure to check the weather before heading out, as road conditions can quickly deteriorate in the rain. 

Access: 2wd/4wd 

 

6. Green River Lakes

Although not the shortest or easiest drive, camping near Green River Lakes is always worth the trek. It is far enough off the typical tourist trek that crowds are dispersed, and it’s quite easy to find a place to boondock within the national forest on the way. The 15.6-mile dirt road will eventually dead end into a trailhead and campground, which serves as an easy access to some of the most stunning mountains in the Wind River Range. Most importantly, don’t forget to pack your kayak and paddleboard! The area is perfect for a scenic morning paddle.

6. Cedar Mountain

Located just a few short minutes outside of Cody, Wyoming, Cedar Mountain offers an elevated view of the Big Horn Basin. These are not official campgrounds, but two sites are located in a roundabout about a mile up the road, with more spots at the end of the road access. Road conditions fluctuate between rough and terrible, and taking large RVs or top-heavy vehicles past the main parking lot is never recommended. These sites’ views are stunning, but please remember to leave no trace if staying here. 

Access: 4×4 only

7. Buffalo Bill State Park 

Situated between Cody and Yellowstone National Park, Buffalo Bill State park offers numerous campsites directly on the water overlooking the Absaroka mountain range. It’s far enough away from town to be secluded, but close enough you can still easily drive to watch the world-famous rodeo. The rocky beach allows the perfect spot to collect driftwood, soak up the view, hang a hammock, or take a dip. 

Access: All Vehicles
