At the TH, you’ll find a small dirt parking area with a signboard next to a gate. A very old outhouse is also located at the TH. There is no water at the TH or any where nearby so bring your own or be prepared to filter the otherwise ample wild water supply.
Note: Take everything you need! This TH is 28 miles from a paved road and another 36 miles from the nearest services at Laramie.
Take Wyoming 230 west for 36 miles to the Foxpark turnoff (FR512). Turn right on to FR512 (the Platte River access Rd). Continue approximately 28 miles to the TH. Delays may be encountered, primarily Monday thru Friday, along this road due to logging operations.
CampingInformal camping is available along the North Platte River as well as along the short approach road to the TH.
