Campgrounds in Wyoming
Wyoming might not be the first place you'd think of to go camping, but that's just because you've forgotten that in this square state in the middle of the US lies both Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park, and that's just the beginning.
Not surprisingly, Wyoming's two biggest camping destinations are around its two biggest National Parks. Yellowstone is the largest draw in the state, with good reason. It's gigantic, and offers visitors an opportunity to see something of that wild west they're always reading about. The wildlife is plentiful, as are the chances to get out and see nature up close. Unfortunately, the tourists are also plentiful - a camping trip to Yellowstone is by no means "getting away from it all." You'd better reserve a spot ahead of time if you're planning on staying in the park. The area around the Grand Tetons is also incredibly beautiful and there are plenty of outdoor activities you can enjoy. While it's also a big draw in Wyoming, it generally has fewer people than Yellowstone.
But there's plenty of camping available beyond the two big parks in Wyoming, too. Around the Laramie area the weather might not always be perfect, but some campgrounds enjoy cooler temperatures all summer long. The Glendo area offers lots of water sports on the lake. And if you want to get within shouting distance of the National Parks without dealing with the camping crowds, stay in the Jackson area. And if you want take in the beauty of the parks without roughing it, then check out some Wyoming Motels.
Wyoming doesn't have many National Parks, but when you can claim Yellowstone you probably don't need much else. Here are a few of them:
There also aren't many Wyoming State Parks, but they certainly help fill in the gaps between National Parks. You can find out more about them here.
