Shell Campground is the closest full-service campground to the Big Horn Mountains. We’re located conveniently on US Highway 14, a main route to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. Shell Canyon and Big Horn National Forest is located about 5 minutes up the highway. You won’t find a better location to explore the Big Horn mountains and basin.
We have 7 cabins, each with their own full bathroom attached. There are 11 full-hookup RV sites with 30-amp service and 2 electric-only sites. We have more than 20 tent sites available. All guests can access complimentary wifi, our spotless shower house and coin-operated laundry facilities.
Shell Campground is open year-round – although in the winter we definitely recommend a cabin over a tent!
There’s a number of things that will bring you to the area. The most obvious is the abundant activities in the Big Horn Mountains – fishing, hunting, hiking, snowmobiling, nordic skiing, wildlife watching and more. The area is also known for its archaeological treasures – within a few miles of the campground you’ll find the Red Gulch Dinosaur Tracksite.
In 2018 we are excited to have downhill skiing nearby as well! Antelope Butte Ski and Recreation Area has announced planns to open for the 2017/2018 ski season and already offering multiple summer activities (Summer Festival and Big Horn Mountains Brewfest). Check their website for more info.
