JMA Campground is located about 15 minutes west of Riverton, Wyoming.

Outstanding views of the Wind River Mountain Range and the Owl Creek Mountain Range. We do not have trees or green grass - bring your own shade. LOL

We have 30 and 50 amp RV sites (each site has water) along with primitive tent sites. Amenities at the park include WiFi, fire pits, firewood, shower and restroom facilities, picnic areas, trash services and a RV dump station available for $10. Visitors can take advantage of the various outdoor activities such as basketball, hiking, biking and stargazing.

Our campers enjoy our quiet solitude - we're not located along a busy noisy highway! Jim and I established our place in 1983. We produced team ropings and barrel racing jackpots for nearly 40 years - we no longer produce rodeo events (due to health). In 2017, we decided to share our property with campers - we have cherished each and every moment - we have made so many friends!

Nice country campground. Nothing fancy, but quiet, off the beaten path location!

Peter Calamusa

Great place!!!Super staff!!! Extremely helpful!!!

Barbara Crosier

A beautiful place to stay in Central Wyoming. Jim and Paulette are exceptional hosts. Located outside of town so sunsets and the night sky are incredible. Highly recommended.

Marie Mueller

Great location! Plenty of room for our 37' 5th wheel. Hostess, Paulette, was very nice and helpful.

Linda Hays

Great place to stay. Paulette and Jim are very accommodating.

Virginia Jordan

Paulette was wonderful. Very accommodating and friendly. All amenities were user friendly and clean!


I loved the peace and quiet. I was there when no event was scheduled, and luckily, despite all the rain Wyoming is having, the ground was somewhat dry. I'd stay again if the opportunity arises.

Campground Response

Thank you for staying with us - we appreciate it very much. We no longer put on rodeo type events. I got a wild hair to have a Flea Market type of event with various vendors, food, campfire and a jam session. We were hit hard by a big rainstorm - so I canceled the event.

Ouida Munck

Great overnight stop. Would stay again.

Donna Newman

Very friendly. Had clean restroom and shower available.

Audrey Myers

What an interesting campground experience! Paulette & Grizzly (the poodle) warmly welcomed us, and showed us to our spot. Electic & water was readily available, and we had a very quiet stay, enjoying the Wyoming sunset. Campfire rings were available, and dump station. Even had several AirBnB choices available. The horses, and donkeys were just across the fence waiting to get their ears scratched. Upon leaving, Paulette caught up to us, and had a memento for us to remember our stay. Great place, and great host.

We upgraded to the grainery and had a very enjoyable stay.

Michelle Anderson

The website describing the RV park is exactly what you get. The view was spectacular and we enjoyed the advantage of not being in an RV park right off the highway which most tend to be. We had good water and 50 amp power. While it's just a big dirt lot, the slot was level and very "homey" feeling. The price was nice too! Would stay there again!

This place is great, much more laid back than a lot of the other campgrounds we’ve visited. Glad we stopped here for a night on the way from Yellowstone to Mount Rushmore. Very kid and dog friendly.

Jim Hessler

This is basically a fairgrounds/rodeo site in a large gravel parking lot in a 1000 acre hayfield. They actually hold rodeo events here. It’s tolerable for one night. On the plus side, there was a decent flush toilet and a single shower. There was water and electric, as well. No sewer hookup. Maybe a dump station. There are about 10 sites but no visible site numbers. We had no on-site communication from the owner. Another camper shared that she had received a txt to park at any open site. Never saw the owner. On the plus side, the 360 view of the western sky was awesome. It’s a place to hole up for one night on the way to somewhere else.

Campground Response

I'm sorry that you didn't have a good experience. We are usually here. We had to run to Utah to pick up our new camper. I do all of the driving, because my husband's health is very poor. I tried to communicate with everyone, but it's very difficult to text and drive (especially pulling the new 5th wheel camper). I noticed that some of my text messages did not go through to you (while driving in no cell service areas). We do not have events at our arena. We simply share our space with others. We have an RV dump available. Our new RV site numbers just arrived - our son designed them. They were on the porch, when we arrived home. Almost everyone enjoys our hospitality, our wide open spaces - most say they enjoy how quiet, save and private it is.

Quentin Beard

Great hosts!

Lisa Armas

What a great spot. Very casual and not a typical campground, which is just fine for us! Hosts are so friendly and helpful. Lots of wildlife on the grounds for nature lovers and the scenery and dark skies are ideal for photographers.

We were going to Yellow Stone and stayed at the campsite for 2 nights. It is a quiet place. Very nice people there. It has very nice mountain view and the campsite is well organized. It has a lot of fun activities for kids to play too. We will go back there next year when we go to Teton and Yellowstone again.

Paulette was very friendly when I arrived, then I never heard from her again. She did not explain the area well so I had trouble finding the shower. Their ad said they would provide firewood, but none was delivered. I had brought my own, so when the wind died down I started my fire by still nothing was offered. I would not stay here again. The campground is on the ranch property and their was an odd assortment of friends and family running around.

Campground Response

I do feel bad that you felt neglected. I enjoyed meeting you and showing you around. Your reservation did not include paying for firewood. Had you paid for and reserved firewood, I would have provided you plenty of firewood. Had you simply contacted me and let me know that you needed firewood, I would have gladly brought you more than enough for a long lasting fire. We do have other campers (guests) and a few friends that come to help us or tend to their horses and I do not consider any of them odd.

Curtis Hendricks

They are very professional. Met me with all my needs. Quick to respond to my needs. Be happy to refer them to others. Will stay there again.
