  • It reminds me of Wisconsin area lakes, and is nice but nothing really unusual. Just a nice place to relax and maybe have lunch or a picnic.  more »
  • I believe this is the best state park in Wyoming except for the fact that no one cares about enforcing the rules to keep the peace. We are enjoying our camping trip except for Party Central existing a...  more »

  • Fun place to swim and have a family day of fun fishing boating camping and all other fun events fourth of July fire work from the lake that was awesome
  • Love Tatanka. The campground hosts this year are the absolute best ever. The grounds are cleaner than ever. The vault toilets are not only clean (floors & all) but smell good and I'm not sure how that's possible. They are sociable, very helpful and always greet you with a smile. To top it all off they are also doing the same for Pronghorn (another campground). Made our stay very enjoyable.
  • Really nice camping area in this SP. Lots of Pronghorn in the area! I was there in May and woke up to a heavy wet snow fall! In a few hours it was all gone however!
  • Ughhh I didn't like it. I was planning on camping but I changed to a cabin at the last minute and I'm so glad I did. The sites we're ridiculously slanted and I don't understand how anyone could ever sleep in a tent in them. There weren't even leveled out places to place your tent. I'm not even going to get into how the parking lot was far from the sites so you'd have to walk your belongings all the way down. The cabin was nice but it did require you to practically clean the entire cabin or else you'd be charged $50. The bathrooms had absolutely no running water which seemed preposterous considering there is a marina very close by. The lake was pretty but it was basically the only thing going for the park. The park had absolutely no staff on site and the emails regarding how to get into cabins were so extensive that pertinent details were hidden. In short I will not be coming back.
  • This is a wonderful place. Its great for swimming and cliff jumping but it is deep so if you are a great or have small childern its best to keep them by the shore
