3 Top Fall Wyoming Camping State Parks

Wyoming is a popular destination for summer camping, but Fall Wyoming camping is just as fun! With temperatures dropping, the busy summer crowds clear out, making an ideal time to go check out the changing scenery in one of Wyoming’s many beautiful State Parks. Our Salt Lake City depot is perfectly placed to reach these wonderful destinations. On average, it’s only about a 6 hour drive to get to your next vacation spot in Wyoming.  See the Google Maps below with markers for all three Fall Wyoming camping state parks.

Top Wyoming Camping: Boysen State Park

Boysen State Park is home to all sorts of fun activities. With hiking, fishing, swimming and much more you’ll have a hard time running out of things to do. Explore the area around the park to check out the beautiful forests and unique geological formations. The Wyoming park even has a showering station for those campers that want an extended stay! Of the almost 300 campsites available at Boysen, most do not require a reservation, and with a Lost Campers budget campervan rental, you can easily secure a regular camp spot without having to worry about the extra cost an RV site would garner.



Medicine Lodge Archaeological Site

Medicine Lodge Archaeological Site is another fun stop with much to do! It’s home to a large cliffside with petroglyphs that are over 10,000 years old- definitely a must-see for those that are interested in the unique and special history of the area. The park also makes a great place to really get into nature, with many native species to observe! Red deer, elk, and moose live in the area. For those interested in horseback riding, the park offers many horse trails to explore during your stay. A Lost Campers campervan is a convenient way to enjoy everything this Wyoming park has to offer- all without having to worry about leaving anything out at your campsite while you’re away- our vans have plenty of storage!

Sinks Canyon State Park has quite a bit to offer! The park features the Popo Angie River, which disappears into a large cavern inside of the canyon, then reappears in a pool filled with trout around half a mile down the canyon. The park gets its name from this formation – its called the Sink and Rise. The park is teeming with wildlife from black bears, to moose, and even golden eagles! You’ll find plenty to do at this park, and one of our campervans can get you there to do it all.

4 Top Winter Camping Destinations in the West

4 Top Winter Camping Destinations in the Western US


Winter camping destinations? Yes! We are abolishing the myth that camping is limited to Spring, Summer and Fall in the Western USA.


Winter camping is an amazing experience that has far more pros than cons. Not only are there less crowds in the months between November and March, but our camper van rental rates are 50% or more lower than the peak months of summer.  Fuel prices are typically lower this time of year as well and no worries on booked out campgrounds,  there is always a place to camp this time of year.

So if you have been holding off taking a much earned adventure out West due to a tight budget… then now is the time to begin planning your next epic road trip! We thought we’d help you out with some great Winter camping destinations that we dig.

Utah Desert Camping and Skiing Vacations

How about fantastic skiing and a desert camping adventure all in one trip? Sounds amazing right? Well that is exactly what you can have traveling from our Salt Lake City depot during winter. (Did I mention Utah has the best snow on earth?)

Pick up a van and hit the slopes for a day then venture to Moab for some winter camping in Arches National Park at the Devils Garden Campground. From November to February, the sites are limited and available on a self-serve/first come basis.  The winter months are still quite cold here so pack accordingly and you will stay warm and happy. Snow rarely falls in the Valley at the foot of the La Sal Mountain, but when it does, the beauty is profound enough that photographers flock to the area for their best shots! This campground will be closed from March 1st 2017-November 1st 2017 so this winter will be your last chance to experience camping there!  


Another one of the great Utah winter camping destinations is  Zion National Park. The Watchman Campground is open year round for first come first serve campsites. A winter visit to Zion allows you more flexibility to see everything at your own pace. November- March you are allowed to drive you own vehicle through the park, during the rest of the busy months of the year, you are required to use the shuttle service. Take advantage of the solitude and amazing photo opportunities that an off season visit provides!

The “Racetrack” in Death Valley – Winter Camping Destinations

Not feeling the idea of snow? No worries. Death Valley is one of the great winter camping destinations in the west. You get to experience all of the beauty and bizarre wonderment of the largest National Park in America without the unbearable heat. California locals enjoy winter camping on holiday weekends in Death Valley, otherwise winter populations are much less crowded than the rest of the year.

A great campground on the North end of the valley is Mesquite Springs Campground. This is a quiet campground with 30 first come first serve sites.  The campground is open year round. At night you can hear the coyotes singing in the distance under a blanket of stars. 


 Arizona Camping

North of  Sedona there is some lovely camping to be had in the Coconino National Forrest. The Manzanita Campground in Oak Creek Canyon is open year around and offers tent sites only on a first come first serve basis. RV’s are not permitted here, so you can enjoy the sound of the flowing creek without the noise of RV generators. This option puts you only 30 minutes away from uptown Sedona where there is loads of eclectic shops, restaurants and desert hiking trails. 




A winter wonderland awaits you and Lost Campers can get you there. Book your big adventure now!

Western Stargazing & Fall Camping

Western Stargazing: Best National Parks to Stargaze

There are a lot of things that make camping in the Fall season wonderful: forests turn from green to fiery orange and gold, temperatures slowly drop from their summer highs, and there are numerous astronomical phenomena happening! Western Stargazing in the United States is a breeze with the many National Parks that allow campers to get away from the light pollution caused by cities and get a clear look at the skies overhead – perfect for observing Fall-season meteor showers. Simply put, fall camping is one of the best ways to unwind from day-to-day life, even if it’s only for a weekend!

The First Dark Sky Park in the World is Closer than you Think!

In Utah, Natural Bridges National Monument is the first dark-sky park in the world. Aside from being able to spot meteor showers with ease, the park allows guests to have a clear view of the sky like you just can’t see in the city. In fact, 80% of us in the United States can’t see the milky way from our front doors! Take a trip on down to Natural Bridges to see the night sky like it was meant to be seen- clear and full of stars. A Lost Campers Campervan can get you there and provide a place to camp while you’re out!

Bryce Canyon National Park, also in Utah, offers an array of night sky activities to allow guests to learn more about the world around us. Many activities are even lead by guest astronomers that can go more in depth about what visitors are seeing through the park’s telescopes. Bryce Canyon has a lot of daytime activities as well, and with temperatures dropping in fall, those daytime hikes are sure to be enjoyable for the whole family.





Festival Fun for Everyone at Great Basin National Park

Nevada’s Great Basin National Park has a 3 day astronomy themed festival in late September to celebrate the Perseid Meteor shower. The park has activities for both adults and children, making this a great time for the whole family to get away for a few days. At night, astronomer lead talks let guests gain in depth knowledge on what it is they’re seeing overhead. Great Basin’s flat terrain makes for an almost 360-degree view of the horizon, which is excellent for Western Stargazing.
