Eagle Creek Campground

After three days of driving pretty much all day long, all of us look forward to a couple of down days and Eagle Creek Campground provides it.

I motor in and find a lovely camp with table and fire ring right along the creek.  Also provided is a a bear box for food and smelly items as we are still in grizzly/black bear territory. . Even lotion will attract bear!

To make things even sweeter there is a mixed hedgerow of bushes and small trees that provide a bit of privacy from the main camp loop road.

With the boys on leash we walk back to the kiosk and fill out the envelope form and pay for our site. Half off with senior pass, $7.50 a night.

Not much accomplished the first afternoon, but the next day, September 1st we explore a little bit. The boys have fun along the creek.

Before we leave on Saturday we have a visitor to the campground.

We are pretty far behind date-wise due to being without internet from about Fontanelle  Creek Campground until we get to Gillette, Wyoming.  Working on catching up and being a bit more current!

Thanks for stopping by 2Dogs!  Hugs, Shawna

  1. Thank you for sharing..think i could get used to that setting quite nicely for a while. Kids have been gone for a few days so I have been giving Dragon(dog) his insulin twice daily, throwing the cong for the pit bull puppy lovin the two cats and another dog plus the menagerie at my house and medicating the older dog…The state is doing road work outside my door so if I want to go anywhere I need to wait for the pilot car..But it is cooling off..Next week promises to more fall like. Actually having a low coming in from Alaska. Take care…you have company in the area…well a ways away..Bill and Marie are in Colorado.
    Hugs..Roberta

    1. Me, too Kris! I cherish these spots, because sometimes it’s a rest area or Wally’s parking lot. They can be a lifesaver, but sites like this are definitely preferred. Once we get to South Dakota and take care of business we can plan better I hope!
