Drove from Pittsburgh PA to Bighorn. The campground we stayed in was awesome! 5 campsites on a forest service road 20 miles long. It took it almost 2 hours to drive in. Well worth it! Solitude

Drove across the park road on US 16, which is a very cool road and very scenic. Very curvy and mountainous as you might imagine. This was in summer. Then, we went backpacking in the cloud peak wilderness, which was also amazing (scenic, secluded, quiet).

While the Bighorns certainly have some beauty. They really don't remotely compare to points further west. I enjoyed our drive thru the Bighorns, but I found their attractions to be poorly marked and rather ordinary. The medicine wheel place is interesting historically, but with the...More
