    Big Atlantic Gulch is operated by the Bureau of Land Management and is located a short distance off WY 28 just east of South Pass. Also nearby is Atlantic City BLM Campground, which is more wooded.

    We pulled into the campground shortly before 3 PM on a Friday - three of the eight sites were taken. We chose site 5 - it has both sun and shade and a nice view out to the south.

    Date of visit: Sep 2011

    Site 1 has a raised area where a tent would go; the parking spot could hold a small RV but not a big rig.

    Site 2 is a pull-out alongside the road with a few steps down to the fire ring and picnic table.

    Site 8 is a back-in site at the top of the loop. It struck me that the sites are numbered backward - if follows the convention of keeping to the right around the loop, site 8 is the first one you come to.

    Sites 6 (left) and 4 (where the trailer is) are also back-in sites. The BLM did a very good job of leveling the sites - we were perefectly level on our site and the others looked to be the same.
