Camping Help Unit 32 Wyoming

Guys,
My daughter and I did not know if we would get up to Wyoming on opening day until a couple of days ago because of some scheduling conflicts. Because of a soccer game schedule change, we will be arriving in the area around Bates Creek Cattle Co. after dark. We will be coming up Hwy 487. Does anyone know if there is dispersed camping or where we could just pull off to get some shut eye? We are not pitching a tent, and will be arriving after dark. I know about the campground at Prior Flats, but am assuming that it will be full since it will probably be around 8:30-9pm that we get up there. Thanks for any hints or info...
Donna

You could camp at Alcova Reservoir. A little further up the road but might be worth it. I am heading up to 32 in 2 weeks. Could you tell me how the hunt goes when you get back. Curious how the hunting will be this year.

Thanks,

Jason

You can camp anywhere you want on BLM ground which is just about anywhere up there. I'd find a flat spot off the highway on top of Shirley Rim and come into 32 the next morning.

Is it dispersed camping? Guess what I really want to know is if you can camp anywhere on BLM land, so that if I see a BLM sign and a road, I can just pull in and park somewhere. Thanks for the recommendation.

We will let you know what we see. We are newbs at speed goats, so trying to be optimistic for my 15 yr old daughter! I used to whitetail hunt down south, and have waited a long time for my oldest to show an interest in hunting...fingers crossed!

You can camp on any BLM land that is not part of an HMA area or privet with permition. Muddy mt HMA covers some of 32? No capming on state land of coarse.
That being said there is a lot of BLM on 402 that runs parralel to 487. Just came through that area yesterday and saw a lot more goats on the south end of 32 east of 487 than I did on the north if that helps? have not spent much time west of 487 in that area so cant help much there.

Thanks for the information. I will try to not worry about that facet of our trip anymore!

Re: Camping Help Unit 32 Wyoming

BLM maps(Shirly basin and Casper) and a Wy public land chip for your GPS will make finding your way around a lot easier! Lots of public land in 32....specialy if you have an HMA permit.
Good luck and have fun!!
