The RV park offers the amenities you would expect from a small RV park. However, the private bathrooms deserve a mention. Anytime we can step into a clean bathroom we take full advantage. This park is one of the few parks we have visited that offer immaculate, spacious, private bathrooms and showers.

RV Park Review 

The Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground is a small park. However, don’t be fooled. In addition to great views, it offers easy access to the town of Lander. The sites are pretty close to each other, and there is not a tremendous amount of privacy. However, this is what we expect from RV parks.

The staff was great and very helpful to us. During our stay the other guest were friendly, and we ended up meeting new friends.

We did travel with our two kids. Unfornutlay, there was not a lot for them to do. However, they did enjoy sitting around the campfire and relaxing after the day’s drive from Yellowstone.

Our Experience

This park was one of the stops on our cross-country trip to Yellowstone. 

After spending four days in Yellowstone we were happy to be heading back eat towards Massachusetts. This park offered a great one-night stop-over for us.

We did learn one important lesson when we left this park. As we left we decided to take 287 through Jeffery City down to Rawlings, WY. It was here that we picked up I80 to head east.

This was a long drive through a rather desolate part of Wyoming. However, the drive is beautiful. Of course, we were unaware that Jeffery City was in fact an abandoned mining town.

We had a very pleasant time and highly recommend this nice RV Park & Campground.
