About
As the sun dips below the Wyoming horizon, imagine parking your RV under the vast, starlit sky on a sprawling 450,000-acre estate where history and nature intertwine. Here, less than two miles from the junction of Owl Creek and Hamilton Dome Roads, a vibrant red barn signals your arrival at a historic sanctuary, where a welcoming Harvest Hosts banner adorns the fence by your gateway to adventure. This location isnt just a waypoint; its a journey through time. RV camping here means resting on lands that cradle the very essence of American ranching heritage, with structures like a 1918 barn, a granary, a charming old schoolhouse, and an opulent mansion standing as monuments to a bygone era. A working ranch and a testament to Wyoming's enduring legacy, it offers a unique backdrop for your RV experience. Set up camp and soak in the breathtaking panoramic views that envelope you. With majestic horses dotting the landscape, your stay promises a rustic charm that city life cannot replicate. Venture close to discover ancient petroglyphs etched in time or unwind in the nearby hot springsan immersion in both tranquility and history. For those who relish the outdoors and cherish America's agricultural roots, RV camping at this historic locale is an opportunity to revel in the expansive beauty of Wyomings wilds. Whether you need provisions from the C-Store or just want to breathe in the fresh country air, this site promises an encounter with the West that is as authentic as it is unforgettable. Come evening, as the sky turns to fire with the sunset, your RV will be your front-row seat to one of nature's most magnificent displays at this emblematic frontier stronghold.
