We stayed in Deer Park Campground in Buffalo in 2012. Not quite as close to the interstate as Indian Campground.

We have have stayed at Indian Campground in Buffalo at least a half dozen times over the past seven or eight years. This time we are trying out Big Horn Mountains Campground. Their rate is the best in town. They are located on
US 16 on the far west side of town. This works our good for us as you start up the mountain as soon as you pull out of the campground. It is full hook-ups and seem good so far. Lucy has just made camp.

Rvparkrevies didn't give them a good rating but the posts are from 2008. Tripadvisor was more kind.

It isn't great, but the hook-ups are good and the price is right. I'll take some pictures in the morning.

Lucy broke camp in Casper this morning, and we headed up to Buffalo, Wyoming. We arrived this afternoon and got Lucy settled into a campground.

We headed up into the Bighorn National Forest late this afternoon. We traveled deep into the Forest looking for Mooses. We didn't have much luck until we were headed back to the campground. Along the dirt road on the way back to the main highway.we spotted two Cow Mooses, and a Bull. We were able to stop and watch them for a few minutes before they retreated into the forest. We shot a couple of pictures that were somewhat blurry as to the impending darkness.

We continued down the mountain back to Lucy in Buffalo. It was well after dark when we arrived.

Today's pictures include:

- Traffic on I-25
- Exit 248 exits to a dirt road.
- Weather gates to close I-25 during severe winter weather.
- Livestock Exercise Area at I-25 Rest Area.
- Bighorn National Forest back road.
- Blurry Moose pictures.

Deer RV Park is our favorite stopover traveling north and south. But you do have to scoot deer and turkey out of your site from time to time. I like to bicycle out to UCross and back from there.

Lucy is still camped in Buffalo, Wyoming. We spent another day up in the Bighorn National Forest seeing the spectacular scenery and looking for Mooses. We did see some great scenery, but struck out in the Moose department. We had a really good day anyway.

The temperature in Buffalo today was 90 degrees, but up in the mountains, it was 70 degrees. It is amazing that 20 minutes of driving, and gaining 3,000 feet in elevation could make such a difference.

We were still up in the mountains as sunset approached. The temperature dropped into the 50's pretty quickly. As we started back down to Buffalo, Fred's driver window switch failed and we could not close the driver side window. It was a chilly and loud drive back to town. When we got back to Lucy, we were able to dismantle the window controller switch box and were able to make a jury rigged repair by cannibalizing parts from one of the rear window controllers. We hope that this will work until we get home.

We had visitors at Lucy tonight. Airstream friends, Brent and Connie, who live in Buffalo, stopped by to see New Lucy. We had a very nice time.

Tonight's pictures are all of our travels through the Bighorn National forest today.

Here are the pictures of the Big Horn Mountains Campground in Buffalo that I promised to post.

It is half mobile home park and half campground, but we found it just fine.

We stayed in the Buffalo KOA in July, terrific owners with two Labradors that welcome new campers. Very quite. Needed a quick in and out so we could get our truck serviced the next morning. Sheridan Ford in Sheridan WY is a great small facility for anyone going thru and needs Ford PM.

Thanks for the photos of Big Horn Mountains CG. I think we'll stick to Deer Park in Buffalo next time we pass through. Did you happen to check out any of the NFS campgrounds on Hwy 16? Apparently there is a NFS dump station up there.

The Forest Service Campgrounds in the Bighorn National Forest are already closed for the season as is the dump station.

You can still camp in a couple of the small campgrounds for free, but the water, toilets, and dumpsters are locked up for the winter.

The Liegh Creek dump station is indeed up there, on the west side of the pass. It is a nice facility with three or four lanes for simultaneous dumping. There is a box there for donations to help cover expenses. I was up there a couple of weeks ago and it was open, however, I suspect it is closed for winter as Brian said.

Alternatively, if you're looking for a dump station in Buffalo, the Cenex truck stop (not the Cenex- Co-Op) has a free dump station behind their building. It's a nice, clean, and well maintained facility. Just pull up and dump.

The rest area at the Fifth Street exit of I-90 in Sheridan also has a dump station.

Lucy broke camp this morning in Buffalo, Wyoming. We got on the road after stops at the Post Office and the gas station to get Fred filled up.

We started out on I-90. We stopped at Gillette, Wyoming to have lunch and look around town. We continued east on I-90 to Moorcroft, Wyoming, where we continued on US 16 into South Dakota

We drove on US 16 to Custer, South Dakota, where we have gotten Lucy a campsite for the next couple of days. We are in a nice little campground in downtown Custer with five point hook-ups.

We had dinner in Lucy and have settled in for the night.

Today's pictures include:

- Downtown Buffalo
- I-90 heading to Gillette.
- Rock, paper, scissors sculpture in Gillette.
- Gillette Main Street.
- 1919 Peoples Bank in Moorcroft, Wyoming.
- US 16 out of Moorcroft.
- Upton, Wyoming does not seem to have self-esteem problems.
- 1910 Weston County Courthouse, Newcastle, Wyoming.
- Main Street, Custer, South Dakota.
- Sunset at Campground in Custer.
