Tunnel Campground

Area Status: Open
This area is Open
 

This campground is located along the Laramie River Road (County Road 103) near the confluence of the West Branch Laramie River and the Laramie River. It is situated in a mature lodgepole pine forest where the mountain pine beetle has been very active. As a result, many dead trees are being cut to provide for visitor safety. Although somewhat less shady than in years past, the facility still provides for a pleasant camping experience. The facility includes restrooms and drinking water, and each of the 49 sites has a picnic table, fire grate and tent pad. Popular activities include stream fishing, hiking in the Rawah Wilderness and wildlife viewing.
