The RV parks in Wyoming are spread across the state, with most of the high-profile RV resorts and campgrounds clustering in the northwest corner of the state, where Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park are located. While these parks understandably draw many thousands of campers each year, the remainder of Wyoming has tons to offer those looking to broaden their adventure into the surrounding environment.
Choosing an RV site in Wyoming bears the benefit of being close to the attractions of the neighboring states. As geographical luck would have it, some of the best of what Montana, Utah, Idaho, Colorado, and South Dakota have to offer visitors in terms of naturalism are near the border with Wyoming. Case in point: Yellowstone and Grand Teton are right at the border with Montana and Idaho; Rock Springs RV parks and campgrounds are within an easy day’s drive from Utah’s Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, Ashley National Forest, and Dinosaur National Monument, which stretches into Colorado. Across the state, the towns of Sundance and Newcastle are close to Wyoming’s Devil’s Tower National Monument, and it’s an easy drive to the most popular spots in South Dakota like Black Hills National Forest, Badlands National Park, Mount Rushmore, and the famous towns of Deadwood and Sturgis.
Bighorn National Forest is located just south of Montana and just west of the RV parks near Sheridan and Buffalo. The park is a gorgeous mixture of grasslands and mountains and offers fifteen hundred miles of trails to explore. Motor west to the Wind River Reservation, home to Boysen State Park and near the Shoshone National Forest and Bridger-Teton National Forest. Many who visit Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks will drive right past these natural gems. If you get an extra day or three, be sure to find a nearby RV site and explore these less-visited regions of the state. Due south of Grand Teton National Park and the RV resorts in Jackson, Wyoming, is the Gros Ventre Wilderness. This area is ideal for anyone looking for remote camping sites or just a little peace and quiet from the crowds to the north.
To the south and east of the Casper RV resorts and campgrounds are pine-filled mountains, large lakes teeming with fish, and Ayres Natural Bridge Park which looks like it escaped from Utah. The North Platte River runs through the area and it is dotted with numerous other natural designations just off the interstate. Guernsey State Park is an area favorite and offers a diverse environment of chaparral, limestone cliffs, and a large lake. North of Douglas is Thunder Basin National Grassland which offers miles and miles of rolling prairie, allowed to exist as it has looked for thousands of years.
