Camping & Campgrounds
Sublette County is over 80% public land. The Bridger-Teton National Forest and Bureau of Land Management are the primary government agencies managing the bulk of the public land in the county. Both agencies have developed recreation campgrounds and dispersed areas offering virtually unlimited opportunities for camping and outdoor recreation. Season of use is typically Memorial Day weekend to the end of September, depending on the location and elevation. The opening day depends greatlly on the weather (when snow leaves) and annual water quality testing results.
Developed campgrounds are typically located near a lake or a stream and have picnic tables, tent or RV spots, and nearby restrooms and trash recepticles. All but a few offer potable drinking water. Some campground units are reservable in advance through ReserveUSA, others are first-come, first-serve. Highest season of use is July and August and during national and local holidays. Special RV pull-through units are available in most developed campgrounds. None of the campgrounds have RV dump services, phones or showers. Cell phone reception may be spotty in ampground areas located near the mountains. Some campgrounds have handicapped accessible sites and restrooms, but not all. Corrals for stock are available at the major trailheads into the wilderness areas. Larger campgrounds have Campgrounds Hosts on location during the summer season.
Overnight campground rFees range from $5 to $15 per night, depending on the site. Campgrounds typically are the busiest during July and August, as well as during national and local holidays. Most developed campgrounds are accessible to RVs, but none have hookups. Access roads may be rough for long or low-clearance vehicles. If you are unfamiliar with the area you plan to visit, it is advisable to ask about the road conditions. Most area campgrounds are many miles from help should you experience a breakdown or flat tire along the way.
