Camping in Wyoming

Wyoming is famous for its beautiful, scenic areas, making it a prime destination for campers and adventurers.

See a map of all camping in Wyoming.

National Parks in Wyoming

Perhaps the most popular destination is Yellowstone National Park, which has many campgrounds, including Grant Village Campground, Canyon Campground Yellowstone, and Bridge Bay Campground.

Another popular option is Grand Teton National Park, where you can stay at Gros Ventre Campground, Jenny Lake Campground, or Signal Mountain Campground, known for its views of Jackson Lake and Mount Moran.

Wyoming State Parks

Wyoming State Parks also have recreation options like fishing, geocaching, biking, and hiking. Some state parks have river access for fishing, areas for archery, and designated areas for hunting.

Be sure to bring your camera to take advantage of scenic overlooks and wildlife viewing. You can pitch a tent at a developed tent site (with amenities) or park your RV at an RV site with hookups for the night.

Anglers might like to try Sinks Canyon State Park in west-central Wyoming as it is known for its large rainbow trout. Just be aware that all campsites there are primitive, with only a firepit and picnic table.

Buffalo Bill State Park is a favorite for many because of its varied recreation options, including boating, fishing, geocaching, hunting, a designated area for off-road vehicles, playgrounds, and volleyball courts.

There is an overnight charge fee by vehicle (in addition to any camping fees) at most state parks.

Wyoming RV Parks

Privately run RV Parks are another option for your Wyoming vacation. The cost may be higher than a state park, but many RV Parks include amenities like cable, wi-fi, and swimming pools. Experienced boondockers often build in a couple of days at an RV Park to "regroup" after enjoying a few days of dispersed camping.

Learn more about Wyoming RV Parks.

Free Camping in Wyoming

There are over two-hundred places to camp for free in Wyoming. All four national forests within Wyoming allow for free dispersed camping, also known as boondocking. Dispersed camping must be done away from developed campgrounds and away from water sources. To protect and share the land, please observe stay limits.

You can enjoy (almost free) backcountry camping in Yellowstone National Park by securing a permit for only $3 a person. You can also camp for free in Wyoming's National Forests.

Dry camping may be allowed in some parking lots but is always subject to manager approval.

Wyoming National Forests

Bridger-Teton National Forest: At over 3.4 million acres of public land, it's hard to imagine a scenario where you wouldn't find a campsite.

Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest: This forest is known for several breathtaking routes to explore by car. These scenic byways include Logan Canyon, Nebo Loop, Big Cottonwood Canyon, and Mirror Lake.

Caribou-Targhee National Forest: Bordering both Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, this National Forest is a great basecamp for exploring both national parks.

Other National Forests in Wyoming

Wherever you stay, Wyoming is a great place to enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery in the United States!

"Friendly Owner, Super Clean, Nice Level Gravel Pull Through Site"

active staractive staractive staractive staractive star
We stayed one night on our way further West and it was a delightful stay. The owner is very friendly and runs a lovely quiet clean park! He gave me some fresh lettuce grown on the farm and a squash when I told him we were eating in. The laundry room was spotless and the machines very clean, they even have a lending library in the laundry...

"Huge flat quiet dispersed camping area"

active staractive staractive staractive staractive star
We took our time and drove up route 16 from Ten Sleep. The drive was gorgeous but not an easy one. We turned right on Canyon Creek and took the next right after that. Then we drove for a mile or two until we came to a huge flat meadow in the woods. The are at least 20 other RVers but space lots of space to spread out. This this spot is...

"Big rigs welcome - 360° Prairie Views"

active staractive staractive staractive staractive star
Pop it in 4-wheel when you pull off the highway - the road in is fine - just a bit steep, and with loose gravel. Our 40-foot 5th wheel had *plenty* of room to turn around and find level ground. You can park a few busses up here with no problem. Great views, windy, and no shade. We have solar and a Starlink, so ideal for us. Clean,...

"Drove For Miles "

active starinactive starinactive starinactive starinactive star
Drove this gravel road for miles looking for a spot to park on a Tuesday. There were lots of camp spaces filled with travel trailers parked with no tow vehicle. Guessing 15-20 campers all went to town for the day. Or 🤔 this national forest is free & cheaper than rv storage fees. It’s getting harder to find a spot to camp now that rules are not...
