The first campground you come to in the canyon is Sawmill Campground. It is mainly a day use area, but there are five campsites (one of which is a fully ADA accessible site) that can be used by either campers or tents.
There is a large day use picnic shelter at Sawmill Campground that is available on a first come first served basis. The shelter can be reserved for a $35 fee and $35 deposit. Call 307-332-3077 to make reservations.
Sawmill also has a small playground and climbing structure.
There are 24 sites in Popo Agie Campground (see campground map). Several at the lower end are walk-in tent campsites. Tents or campers can be used at all other sites. Large RV sites are very limited. There are no showers or hook-ups.
Most summers there is a camp host at both Popo Agie and The National Forest Sinks Campgrounds.
Showers are available for a small fee in Lander at the community swimming pool (The Bruce Gresly Aquatic Center) during open swimming hours. Call 307-332-2272 for information on hours.
All camping in the canyon is first come first served – there is no reserving of sites.
All camping is primitive camping: tables, fire rings and pit toilets. There is drinking water available at all campgrounds, but no hookups.
Firewood is provided to campers on the state park (donation suggested).
