“The mission of the Friends of Bighorn Lake is to build on the recreational, economic and environmental opportunities of Bighorn Lake”
Uphill from the Horseshoe Bend Marina and picnic area, nestled in sagebrush and juniper woodland communities, the 48 campsites of the Horseshoe Bend Campground overlook the Bighorn Lake and the red sandstone cliffs of Sykes Mountain. The campground is located 14 miles north of Lovell, Wyoming via WY Hwy 37.
During the winter of 2007-08 Bighorn Canyon employees, using fee money, refurbished 19 sites to accommodate larger RVs and boats. Electrical and water hook-ups were added to theses sites. Eight of the improved sites have wind fences. The remaining 28 sites were left unchanged and are a perfect fit for small RVs or tents.
All vehicles are still required to obtain a valid entrance pass as they enter the park. To pay for the campground fee, Iron Rangers, a device designed to allow self payment of fees, are located near the bathrooms in each loop of the campground. Fee envelopes are available at the Iron Rangers to deposit your cash or checks for payment of the campground fee. Checks should be made out to the National Park Service. A flap on the envelope will tear off for placement on the clip at the camping site. Camp sites cannot be reserved and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Senior Passport, and the Access Passport, will give you free entrance into Bighorn Canyon, and are accepted to discount the campground fee.

” Wild horses still roam freely in the Pryor Mountains outside of Lovell, Wyoming. This herd of horses is very special because of its Colonial Spanish American heritage. This tough little horse, derived from the horses of Portugal and Spain, has been present in this rugged mountain area for nearly 200 years. If lost, the herd cannot be restored; and so its biological viability, together with its history, must be preserved.
It is the purpose of the PRYOR MOUNTAIN WILD MUSTANG CENTER to do just that. The Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center is a public, nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational institution, unique in purpose and location. The Center is working towards becoming the foremost wild horse educational institution in the world. Your donations can help!”

“The Hyart Theater was built in Lovell by Hyrum “Hy” Bischoff in 1950. It is a rare Wyoming example of a cinema from the early 1950s. The building is notable for the turquoise-colored metal lattice screen that covers a pink metal facade, as well as for its tall neon pylon sign.
Dan Bischoff (1870-1936) bought the Armada Theater in Lovell in 1913 and converted it into a cinema. His son Hy took over the business on his father’s death and operated two Armada theaters. Determining to build a new cinema, Hy toured the mountain states region looking at other cinemas. The 1949 Villa Theater in Salt Lake City particularly impressed Bischoff, and he modeled the Hyart’s lobby after the Villa’s. Bischoff designed his new theater and directed the construction. Owing to shortages of steel during the Korean War, Bischoff obtained salvaged rails from the mines at Bearcreek, Montana, and had them fashioned into steel roof trusses.
The two story building measures approximately 224 feet (68 m) deep by 70 feet (21 m) wide, facing onto Main Street. The walls are clay tile faced with brick, while the lower portion of the street facade is faced with small brick-like slabs of rhyolite from Idaho Falls, Idaho. The upper part of the street elevation is covered with pink sheet metal and screened by an elaborate diagonal lattice of turquoise metal. An office and apartment are located on the second floor, with eight windows behind the lattice. Pink neon lights outline the facade behind the lattice. A tall pylon features a neon-lighted artist’s palette and the word HYART at a right angle to the street.
The interior features the original carpeting and painted scrollwork above paneling. Originally seating 1001, the Hyart now seats 940, including a balcony with more than 200 seats. The theater features a soundproof “crying room” for parents with crying babies.”
