When you head out west expect the unexpected. Gillette is perfectly located on Interstate 90 in northeast Wyoming and nestled in the Powder River Basin. With Mount Rushmore National Memorial just 133 miles east, Devils Tower National Monument only 62 miles northeast, and the Big Horn Mountains only an hour and a half west, Gillette will be the hub of all your activities.
We are honored to have been chosen as the official location for the 2024 Camporee and will strive to make it as great as Oshkosh. We promise.

Camping is always a great option for getting to the Camporee. The main advantages are that it is usually low cost, there are hundreds of campsites across the United States, and there’s a chance to camp near some great national parks.
KOA Campgrounds – The most extensive network of quality franchises. You can count on clean hot showers, grassy tent camping sites, and even cabins at some locations. Prices vary.There are hundreds of options across North America, and many are only minutes from the Interstate, often near local/national points of interest.
U.S. National Park Service – The National Park Service website offers a large amount of information about their hundreds of national parks, reserves and historic sites. Many of these sites have inexpensive camping accommodations.
You can also camp off-site at a local RV park which has RV services. You would be responsible for making these reservations and paying for all RV campground fees. Here are a few local RV campgrounds. The International Camporee does not endorse any particular campground.
