Poison Spider Bentonite Pit, Natrona County

Last Known StatusOpen

This popular area area offers a large open play pit, some steep hill climbs, mud pits and scattered obstacle courses to explore. All vehicle types are welcomed but this area is very popular with Jeeps and 4x4s.

The main staging area offers plenty of space for parking and restrooms. There is no fee to ride but machines must display a current Wyoming OHV Sticker.

Overnight parking is not permitted but camping can be found a short distance away at Fort Caspar Campground.
