Writer's Workshop: Camping

2. Share a camping location that you think is a Must-Visit

We go camping a lot.  On average we try to get camping at least twice a year, if not more.  We have been several places.
Kemmerer Wyoming; or at least the mountains above Kemmerer.
Beaver Creek Campground in the Black Hills.
Veedauwoo Wyoming.
Telephone mountain Wyoming.
Alcova Lake Wyoming.
Arches National Park
Grand Canyon National Park
Several places in the Snowy Mountians:
  • Lake Owen
  • Rob Roy Reservoir
  • Cinnabar Park
  • Rambler Estates and land plots (we camped on a land plot)
  • Pelton Creek Campground
However, our favorite place would have to be the Picaroon on the North Platte river.  Getting there can be an adventure in and of itself.  A one lane dirt road with tight switch backs makes getting campers down to the Pic a fun process. Once down to our favorite place to set up we are right on the river and sheltered under lovely cottonwood shade trees.
There are several options for activities:
  • River rafting
  • Kayaking
  • Fishing
  • dam building
  • simple wading
We also love the fact that we always go with family we thing of as friends.   We have many great memories of fantastic times at the Picaroon.

It is a genuinely lovely place.
