You'll love the crisp, clean air and views unparalleled anywhere on the planet. Spend the night in your tent or rent a rustic cabin, you'll love yourself for it!

Get lost in the Bighorns for a week. Hard hiking but good fishing and spectacular views. Be prepared for rapid changes in the weather. If you are looking for food, bathroom facilities and paved trails in a National Forest then go to Colorado.

On a whirlwind road trip from Wisconsin to Yellowstone and back we stayed one night in the Bighorns. The drive, from east to west on 14, was incredibly beautiful. Driving up the mountain was slightly scary with some tailgaters, but luckily I wasn't driving so I was free to take in the amazing sights. We had to stop several times... More

it does! An amazing experience to drive through Big Horn National Forest. Majestic, bone-chilling, shock & awe, wowzer, amazing, so-beautiful-at-times-it-brings-tears-to-your-eyes...only a few of the words we'd use to describe this small piece of natural beauty! Would love to return someday!

1.Beautiful scenery 2.Great places to explore without huge crowds. 3. Fishing and hunting are good for those spots people. 4. Good campgrounds. 5. Usually can view wildlife. 6. Four lodges on top. One downside is the Burgess Junction visitors center had to be closed to National Forest Service budget cuts. Get your information at the Sheridan, Lovell, or Greybull forest... More

Last summer, my 14 year-old son and I spent several weeks camping in the Big Horns. We never had a negative campground experience. In fact, we were able to see moose walk through our campsites in the evenings. Wood was plentiful, either collected by us, or purchased from our friendly campground hosts. We look forward to returning every summer.

The Big Horn Mountains are not widely known outside this region, and subsequently don't get much traffic. If you truly want to "get away from it all" in an alpine environment, BHNF and Cloud Peak Wilderness are the place to go during all seasons.

The Big Horns have a lot to offer all four seasons of the year even the dead of winter. I live in the northern part of the Big Horns about an half hour west in the Sheridan area. The biggest positive is (unlike where I use to live in Colorado) there are not a lot of people up here. If... More
