“OUR” Campground

We are pleased to finally be “parked” at Warren Bridge Campground on the beautiful Green River near Daniel, Wyoming!  In the two weeks since we arrived to find snow still covering the roads and campsites, the temperatures have improved and the snow melted off.  Then, it snowed some more!!! Now, summer is “teasing” again! 

While staying in Pinedale, we drove out to the campground every few days to check that progress… fun to watch the transition!  The following photos show what we found upon arrival…

This is truly beautiful country, and very similar to the San Luis Valley in Colorado… same elevation, mountains all around, the sounds of geese and sandhill cranes, and lots of wildlife. Never saw so many antelope and mule deer!  And, we were treated to the sight of two moose in our campground one day!

Yesterday was busy, as we moved here and started setting up.  Tom met with maintenance staff who started the water systems and got the electricity hooked up… showed Tom how the dump station and systems work.  Propane company came and hooked up our propane and filled the tank. Landline telephone was connected. So, now we are settling in and getting organized.  We have a shed/shop for storage and tools, etc. 

We think we will enjoy this location for the summer.  And, as hosts, we welcomed our first camper yesterday afternoon! We spotted another moose last evening, and the full moon made our first night even more special!

The campground is made up of two loops.  The first loop, nearest the entrance, is for “day use” and no overnight camping.  It has two restrooms, and sites have picnic tables and grills.

The camping loop sits further back from the road, and has 15 spacious campsites (in addition to ours) with two restrooms.  At each site, there is a picnic table, grill, fire ring and trash can. This is a 14-day maximum stay BLM campground, at $10/night ($5/night with Access Pass), with plenty of water spigots and a dump station.  A cleaning crew comes here twice a week to clean the restrooms and empty trash… YAY! That’s not us :)

So, we are off to a good start and so enjoyed coffee in the bright sun this morning!  Spotted another moose across the river, plus antelope in the campground.  Yes, I think this will be a great place to spend the summer, and we are looking forward to visits with friends that will be stopping by... no reservations necessary. Just travel safely, and we'll leave a light on!

Best wishes to all, and be well, everyone!  Hugs, Dianne & Tom

    1. Really warmer than it looks... had to take my flannel over-shirt off at 8:00 this morning. Sun is warm at this elevation. Yes, much to photograph... a dozen+ pronghorn walked thru our yard this morning, and the mountains to the east are stunning :) Take care!
