What is a trip to Wyoming and Yellowstone country without camping? The Big Horn National Forest and The Sweet 16 offer camping opportunities all along your trip. You can find just the right spot for your tent, RV, or trailer just off the beaten path, or miles off the highway in the Cloud Peak Wilderness. Alpine lakes and streams offer great fishing, and lodges offer cabins if you really don’t want to rough it.
