Just planning for a future trip, so nothing emergent. Does anybody have favorite spots for the Big Horn Mountains in WY? We are 34' long and 13'5" tall. Hookups or no hookups, doesn't matter to us, we like to boondock. Main concerns are having space between campers, so majority of traditional RV parks are less than ideal for us but will do in a pinch. Ideally, 20-30' of space between campers if in a traditional park as we have dogs.

Thanks in advance!

We have used two FS campgrounds in the Bighorns and loved both.
Tie Flume Campground
Bald Mountain Campground

Tie Flume is off route 14 southwest of Burgess Junction. Bald Mountain is off route 14A west of Burgess Junction. The Medicine Wheel access road is only about 1/2 mile away from Bald Mountain and the 3 mile round trip hike at elevation from the parking area to the Wheel was well worth the effort. Note: The steep descent on 14A to Lovell begins west of Bald Mountain, so no issue with the 10% grades.

Lots of boondocking locations off routes 14 and 14A. Check Google Earth.

Great, thank you! Both of these campgrounds look beautiful. Grades don't bother us much, but good info to know.

I would not take our rig up or down 14A. It's just too hard on brakes and transmission. But 14 is doable.
For views, the campground Bald Mountain offers more of that.

I've stayed at both Bald Mountain and Sitting Bull in summer and got the last site in both instances. Very popular! I also drove my Tiger down 14A and the scenery was truly awe-inspiring. No, I would not recommend it for most RVs as it's 10% grade and hairpin curves. But if you get a chance to drive it in a toad or TV, it's worth the trip. There are viewpoints along the way.

Just a couple of miles from Burgess Junction is a really nice place to camp at coordinates 44°48'25.6"N 107°33'17.5"W We have stayed at this location several times. In the middle of the night we have seen wolves, muleys, elk, and moose. We rarely have any neighbors in the area.

Thanks everyone! We'd be coming from Denver area so we would be coming up I-25. Some nice ideas here, I'm tempted to pack a tent and just go at it alone here soon [emoticon] As mentioned steep grades don't bother us, but roads that are too windey do. So perhaps 14a isn't the best bet while towing.

There is a neat looking (we have never stayed there) on 16 in Ten Sleep called the Ten Sleep RV Park, oddly enough. I would stay there if our timing worked out right.

Yes, we have a favorite--USFS Sibley Lake campground on US 14. Electric hookups and water, but no dump. Nice, long, well-spaced, back-in spaces under the pines, very clean pit toilets, nice lake with good trout fishing, hiking/snowmobile trails, cool nights. What more could you want?

You can see a couple of my photos of our campsite on campgroundreviews.com.
