An awesome campground adjacent to a mountain meadow nestled in the Bighorn National Forest.

Sitting Bull Campground is located in the Bighorn National Forest, on the west side of scenic Cloud Peak Skyway near the Cloud Peak Wilderness (51 miles east of Worland, WY).

The campground is adjacent to a beautiful mountain meadow that provides views of the surrounding mountains as well as opportunities for wildlife viewing (we saw moose when we camped here). 

Each site has a picnic table and campfire ring with grill and guests have access to vault toilets and drinking water. Trash collection is also provided. 

Campsites cost $17/night and can be reserved on recreation.gov ($10 online transaction fee).  

There are several nearby attractions including paddling and fishing on Meadowlark Lake, hiking, and scenic drives.
