Road Trip Ideas for RVers: Wonderful Wyoming!
Looking for an RV destination where you'll experience breathtaking views, natural wonders and incredible wildlife? Check out this Wyoming road trip itinerary for great travel ideas:
When we think of Cheyenne, we think of cowboys, rodeos and beautiful views, and you’ll find all that and more when you visit. While there is world-class mountain biking, climbing and plenty of RV camping throughout the year, we recommend visiting during Cheyenne Frontier Days, which takes place at the end of July and was named the top festival in the nation by Livability.com. This year, Cheyenne Frontier Days begins on July 21 and goes through July 30, with highlights including the World’s Largest Outdoor Rodeo, carnivals, parades, air shows, and concerts from artists like Little Big Town, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean and Jason Derulo. If you don’t make it for Frontier Days, you’ll still find plenty to do in Cheyenne, including plenty of historical tours and attractions, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the wintertime, fishing, and an array of biking and hiking trails.
If you love adventure, you’ll love Casper, Wyoming. Known as the mountain town for the wild at heart, visitors can enjoy exceptional hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, boating and more, all while taking in the breathtaking and unique Wyoming landscape. With Casper Mountain, the North Platte River and Fremont Canyon at your disposal, you won’t have any time to be bored—unless you want to be. If you’re considering visiting this August, we recommend the once in a lifetime opportunity to attend the Wyoming Eclipse Festival, which because of its location and low light pollution is considered one of the best places in the world to see this eclipse.
Bighorn National Forest
If you’re looking to explore the wilderness, we recommend a visit to Bighorn National Forest. Choose your own adventure and try biking, fishing, big game hunting, horseback riding, boating, ATV riding, birding and much, much more! We recommend RV camping at Buffalo KOA, which was awarded the KOA President’s & Founder’s Award four years in a row! Splurge on the Deluxe RV campground sites and you’ll enjoy a concrete patio, gas barbecue grill, patio furniture, fire ring, swing and your very own hot tub. In addition to being pet-friendly, the Deluxe RV sites include a fenced in area for your dog to roam so everyone in the family will be happy!
Yellowstone National Park
You can’t visit Wyoming without exploring some of the two million acres of Yellowstone National Park. In addition to having the world’s largest concentration of geysers and thermal features, you’ll find plenty of iconic spots, including Old Faithful, Lower Falls and Yellowstone Lake. Open year-round, there’s plenty to do regardless of which season you visit. Enjoy hiking and wildlife opportunities, fall foliage tours, snowmobile tours and spring biking. You may even spot bison, grizzly bears, moose, elk, wolves, bighorn sheep and plenty of other large mammals, as well as bald eagles, peregrine falcons, ravens, cranes and more!
