Stayed at the Tamarask campground, which is a little rough. Rocky interior roads but nice site right on the reservoir. Pretty much had the loop to myself. When I stay at Boysen SP next time it will be on the Wind River, north of the reservoir. Looks more scenic with nicer-looking sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I stumbled across this park. It is right on a beautiful little river, and listening to the river sounds at night while going to sleep was great. This is not a destination park, but is a very nice inexpensive sleepover place. It is on a highway, so road noises are present. There are no showers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Right on the lake. Our first time dry camping and it was great. Opened the windows and let the breeze cool us at night. It was fine. Lots of people here with boats. It's a huge lake. Very quiet and not developed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The setting is the beautiful Wind River Canyon. The downside, for tent camping, is that they water the grass with a sprinkler system and do not warn tent campers when they are making reservations. If the campground host hadn't warned us and told us to put pots weighed down with rocks on top of the sprinkler heads (which took some searching) we would have woken up to wet tents. This is an outhouse (pit toilet) only facility, there are no showers. There are water spigots. The mosquito's were horrible this year but that seems to be an exception, due to the wet spring. There are showers in town at the hot springs, the state bath house. We camped here in a Tent.
Gravel sites, we camped in the Tamarask campground. Right on the water in a desert setting! Even with antennas, our Verizon aircard and phone did not work. Great place if you are self contained. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Boysen encompasses a large lake with several campgrounds, we stayed at the Tough Creek facility, which is about 10 mi. N. of Shoshoni on Hwy 20. Tough Creek is a minimalist-type place, no hookups, lots of room, a few trees. Only facilities are tables, BBQs, toilets and a little playground equipment for kids. Primarily, this is a campground for boaters & fishermen, but it worked well as an overnight for us. They told us it can get hot, cold and windy, but was OK when we arrived in August. This is some pretty backwoods country, podner! We camped here in a Motorhome.
