It was the Fourth of July, we were on our big summer RV trip, and we had no place to camp in Wyoming. We tried boondocking near Shadow Mountain Road, but it was completely packed. With four RVs in our group, we needed a large site and it just wasn’t going to happen at Shadow Mountain Road. Unsure of where to go, we asked the ranger if there were any other dispersed camping areas that could fit our large group. She recommended Buffalo Valley Road, and it turned out to be a wonderful boondocking spot. It was remote, scenic, adjacent to Bridger-Teton National Forest, and about a 30 minute drive to the Grand Teton National Park Moran entrance. Yeah, we got lucky!
After you make the turn onto Buffalo Valley Road, you’ll drive by a few ranches and homes tucked away in the hills. There will be small campsites right along the road, and if you drive all the way to my GPS coordinates, you’ll find the large camping spot that saved us on that busy Fourth of July. The spot is very large and can accommodate up to six RVs, there’s a fire pit to huddle around, and you’re completely surrounded by nature. Head farther down Forest Road 30069 and there’s a small creek, too! Watch my video for a better view of the campsite, and if you decide to camp here, I’d love to hear about your experience! Happy boondocking!
