Visit this historic site set against the backdrop of the Big Horn Mountains.

The Connor Battlefield State Park is a Historic Site that is a great resting spot for picnicking and camping. You can visit a national monument in the area. On August 29, 1865, General Patrick E. Connor led a column of troops from Fort Laramie into the Powder River country of northern Wyoming. The Powder River expedition's mission was to make war on the Native Americans and punish them so that they would be forced to keep the peace. There were 250 troops with 184 wagons and 80 Pawnee scouts. They were to attack Chief Black Bear's Arapahoe village located on the Tongue River. 

Today, the site has 20 camping sites and several picnic sites in the shade of mature cottonwood trees. There are two restrooms, a playground, and horseshoe pits. Each campsite has a picnic table and a grill. The sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so reservations aren't required. The park is open year-round, weather permitting,  but camping is allowed from May 1 - September 30. Enjoy camping underneath Wyoming's open skies.
