We arrived at the campground so late in the day that we kind of start to worry that we may not be able to find a spot since it was during the Labor Day weekend. The campgrounds were busy and lots of people were on the road looking for camping spots. We were going to go stay at the Lost Cabin campground, but we decided to go on ahead and check out this other campground called the Deer Park, which was quite a ways. I would say it was worth the drive because we got to a camping site where it was free and near the creek. We all enjoyed going to the creek and throw river rocks, then ended up in a competition of who can hit the big rock that was in the water the most.
The road to the campground was so busy during that weekend that it looks like a highway with all the traffic that went on. People on their ATVs, Dirt Bikes, RVs, hauling their boats, even hauling their horses, and lots of different types of transportation. Even with all the traffic and the noise, my family still had a great time camping. Our camping trip to the Bighorn National Forest was also our little girl Selby's first official camping trip and we are so proud of her because she made it. We camped out for two nights at the Deer Park campground, and I would say we slept pretty early in those two nights, like we went to bed at eight o' clock. Hiking the mountains can wear you out, but it is a good workout.
