About Our Site - Connor Battlefield

The site consists of 20 camping and picnic sites nestled in an oxbow of the Tongue River in the shade of large cottonwoods. There are two restrooms, a playground, and horseshoe pits. Each camping and picnic site has a grill and table and two sites are ADA accessible. Connor offers a quiet, relaxing campsite, away from the hustle of the road in the peaceful shade of a river bottom. Community facilities are within a few blocks, and yet a visitor would never know it. Camping sites operate on a first-come, first-served basis, without reservations. Camping is seasonal. The park closes to camping and vehicles on October 31.


Connor Battlefield status in flux




Connor Battlefield Campground status

Connor Battlefield Campground in Ranchester, Wyo., is currently opening and closing at a moment's notice. Because of the effects of rainfall and snowmelt in the mountains, the Tongue River is frequently overflowing its banks and flooding the campground and park.

When this happens, the gates to the park, both on the vehicle road and pedestrian bridge,  are closed for everyone's safety. This means the park is not only closed for camping, but also closed for day use and swimming, so please do not climb over the gates.

To check the status of the campground, please visit us at www.wyoparks.orgwww.facebook.com/ConnorBattlefieldCampground, or call Fort Phil Kearny State Historic Site at 307-684-7629.
