5 RV Parks near Kemmerer, Wyoming
May 2019 - $26.00
The Riverside RV Park is small and old-fashioned, having been built by the owner's grandfather back in the 60s. It's located on the wrong side of the tracks, literally (I had to cross a long bridge that was under major construction, a bumpy ride for my trailer) and figuratively (the neighborhood was poorer and seedier); but it was satisfactory for a week's stay, and seems the best camper's option for visiting Fossil Butte. The office was not staffed when I arrived (I'm not sure it ever is). There was a note telling guests to park and put an envelope with their money in a slot. I picked one of the remaining pull-through sites and set up. I called and left a message with the manager, but apparently that message got garbled (the local cellular service was unusable), but she stopped by later and accounts got settled. My asphalt-paved site was wide and long enough to be easily accessed, but the placement of the hookups made me park so far forward that I had to park my truck beside the trailer. The space between sites is covered in river rock, with a table and a small tree, not an inviting picnic area, but eating outside is not my lifestyle. Guests are expected to be self-sufficient. The campground is not a resort; it provides no swimming pool, no playground, no store for supplies, not even propane. You're on your own in a small town with limited resources. With poor cellular service, I expected as well to be in another internet black hole for the week, since my wifi hotspot depends on that connection. However, it turned out that the campground does provide a good wifi system; it's unsecured, but my virtual private network worked, and (I think) kept my system safe. Moreover, the $185/week rate was welcome after the exhorbitant fees in Salt Lake City, and my visit to Fossil Butte definitely made it worthwhile. - Jim Fulton

Nice little RV park off the main hwy. Good signage to park. Park is asphalt and gravel pull through. Have all services but we only used the electric and water. They also put chlorine in the water system. Quite a few permanent residents, but they do leave a couple of places open for overnight travelers. We were traveling in Oct and host said that they did have laundry faculties, but they had shut it down for winter. Was self check in but host did come around and check to make sure everything was OK. Be aware they charge a $1.00 fee per dog. There are walking trails nearby and the neighborhood is nice. Did hear the train in the evening, but nothing at night. And couple of the permanent residents were having a grand old time during the evening, but shut it down after night fall. The night was very quiet. Other than the chlorine and the charge for the dogs, it was a nice place to stay overnight. - Helms56

This is a small, clean campground with full hookups including cable and good wifi. You leave a check in a dropbox so price above reflects full cost--no additional tax or fees. Owner dropped by in the evening to make sure everything was OK. It looks like they recently renovated the pull-through side of the campground...newly planted trees, new asphalt pads, fresh gravel, fresh paint on picnic tables. Very nicely done, however, we've never encountered a campground without a bathroom or even vault toilet. Campground is less than 10 miles from Fossil Butte National Monument. - Smashcamp

There is evidence that this park has had better days. Everything they claim is there is as long as you include dandelions in their description of grassy sites. Some evidence of gravel is visible on most sites. Did I mention none of them appears to be particularly level. The rate ($30) is high for the condition of the place. On the flip side they have a very short season to break even. Of the three options available, this place is the least offensive. One is very close to a very busy rail yard and the other is in a bar parking lot. - CharlieB

Roads are poor gravel and the sites are dirt. You can't make reservations and there is no office that I could tell. Just put your money in an envelope at the entrance and look for a open site. I didn't find a site that looked open even though it looks like there are many incomplete sites under construction. I ended up calling their phone and got ahold of what appeared to be the handyman who put me into a site that he said was reserved but they were not here yet??? I stayed here two nights. This could be a great place if they set it up like a "real" RV park. - Dennis_K

WE DID NOT CAMP HERE, but found it while driving by. Much better site than the RV park down the road. - John Boyd

I hesitate to give a poor review knowing that the owner is trying to make a living, but travelers need to know what to expect.
The only positives about this campground are good power and water. Nothing else is positive.
We arrived on a Sunday so the restaurant was closed and no one was there to tells us where to park. We were not preassigned a spot so we tried to find the least objectionable. The first wreaked of strong sewage, another was flooded by a leaking water line. All the others are a mix of river rock, dirt, and ankle high weeds. The sewer dump at our site was hidden under several large rocks. It was just an open pipe with no cap.
When we were ready to leave the next morning about 8 AM my wife went to the restaurant to pay our fee. She reports the restaurant was not appealing and had a strange odor. Even if we had come on a day they were open, we would not have eaten there. So, even their offer of not charging the $20 nightly fee if you spend $30 in the restaurant it not enticing. I would not stay here again. - Arn

This RV park is nothing to just pass by! It's really nothing to look at - you're looking at the back of the grill and a golf course. But the deal when I was there was this - spend $30 on food and beverages at the grill and the RV site is FREE. Ok, but what the deal doesn't tell you is how fantastic the food, beverage and service are. I can honestly say when I was there the food was outstanding and the service was far beyond expectations. The laundry equipment looks brand new and restrooms are clean. No showers. The only downside is the Wi-Fi connections are weak and some of the sites are level on gravel/grass, some are not. Just for the delicious food alone I'd recommend at least a night's stay, though. - Qwest

It rained while we were their and it turned into a muddy mess. I also got stuck leaving. This is probably the best place in Kemmerer because it surrounds a good restaurant. There was no grass, just rocks and weeds. None of the three RV parks had any services. Don't stop in Kemmerer unless you plan to stay in a motel. - Glen Varvil
