Big Horn forest ?

Planning a trip to Yellowstone and thinking about a day or two in the Big Horn forest. Wondering how it is pulling 28Bhs up Hy. 14 or 16. Which CG's are the best. IDEAS?

I was at Tie Flume a couple years ago, very nice.
I grew up in Sheridan and spent many a night in the Bighorns.
They have drinking water available, but is hand pumped.
If you need to fill up, Bear Lodge (at the intersection of 14 and 14A) should have water available as well as fuel.
The climb up through Shell canyon (hw14) is gorgeous as well as Shell Falls and they have RV parking there as well.
Dead Swede CG is nice as well.

I'll try to post up a couple Pics in a bit.

There are some long runs of 6% grade going up, and going down. We did 14 this last summer, and while steep, twisty, and in some spots the turns were posted at 15 mph, we had no issues. The Bighorns are one of my favorite places to go, although we don't do it very often.
It can be a bit tight in the established campgrounds to get a spot, especially on weekends. There is a wealth of boondocking space off the roads.

I was strongly advised NOT to try taking Hwy 14A when pulling a trailer. But 14 or 16 are just fine!
