Geysers, bison, dramatic mountain ranges, and world-class fishing all await in the wild and rugged expanse of Wyoming.
Where can you find some of the most famous natural wonders in the United States? Wyoming—that’s where. Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, and Old Faithful are just a few of this state’s camping hot spots. Jackson is the gateway to action-packed northwestern Wyoming. Use a campground or RV park in the valley as a base while you raft down the Snake River in the summer and hit the slopes at Jackson Hole in the winter. As you hike through the rugged peaks and alpine lakes of the Tetons, keep an eye out for bison and bighorn sheep. To the north, Yellowstone offers more than 2,000 dedicated campsites (and some wild backcountry) in its 3,400 square miles. After you fish Yellowstone Lake and hike Mammoth Hot Springs, try a horseback riding camping trip into the Bridger-Teton National Forest. For serious off-the-beaten path adventures, lace up your pack for a trip to the Cirque of the Towers in the Wind River Range. As for the rest of Wyoming? There’s grandeur to spare. At Devils Tower National Monument, a bizarre igneous butte towers over the plains; at Fossil Butte, freshwater fossils tell the story of a prehistoric lake. For something completely different, load up your fishing gear and camp on the shores of Flaming Gorge Reservoir. Hike beneath 1,000-foot cliffs at Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area. Everywhere you go in Wyoming, you’ll find untouched wilderness and camping options for every type of traveler.
