NEED MORE IDEAS???
Thunder Basin National Grassland is located in northeastern Wyoming and, together with the Medicine Bow National Forest, makes up about 3 million acres of land from the northeast border of Wyoming to just north of the I-70 corridor of Colorado. The area is perfect for hiking, fishing and camping, though there aren’t any formal camping areas designated. Camping is permitted, but you have to be careful that you are not on private property! There are no fees for using the public lands and it is open year round, however if you plan to go fishing or hunting, you will need a license.
Following is a list of camping information from the area sourced from the U.S. National Forest Campground Guide.
