Winter Wyoming Camping Hotspots

 

Winter Wyoming camping can be a wonderful way to relax before the madness of the holidays sets in. Wyoming has much to offer, with an array of State and National parks for campers to enjoy during their break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Previously we covered some of Wyoming’s great State Parks, but the Cowboy State has even more to offer with its beautiful National Parks.

Our Budget Campervans are perfect to get you where you want to go for winter Wyoming camping, without breaking the bank just before the season of giving. Fall and winter campervan rental rates start at only $37.99 a day. That’s a 76% savings off our summer rates!

Fossil Butte has Much to Offer!

Fossil Butte is home to an astonishing collection of well preserved fossils of all kinds! Plants, animals, and even insects from the past can be seen preserved in rocks for visitors to see when they visit this unique park. Camping is located just outside of the area, so this park may make more of a pleasant day trip than an extended say- which is perfect for our campers. Our Campervans allow you to travel whenever you like, and Wyoming has much to see!

 

 

 

 

Devils Tower Will Leave You in Awe

The Devils Tower is a unique geologic formation that will leave you in awe. There are several hiking trails to take around the Tower to see it at its fullest, and one of the trails even leads right up to the Tower’s base. Devils Tower holds spiritual significance with many Native American tribes, and with a presence like that it’s no wonder that it does. The park’s campgrounds close in October, but Devil’s Tower is definitely a must-see for anyone venturing into Wyoming. Local camp areas can be found in the Devil’s Tower KOA, Belle Fourche River Campground, and Devils Tower Tipi Camping.

Home to gorgeous plant life and awe-inspiring mountains, Grand Teton is unquestionably one of the best camping spots Wyoming has to offer. Skiing, snowmobiling, dog sledding, sleigh rides and snowshoeing are just some of the activities that campers can enjoy in this gorgeous park.

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! 

 

 

California Desert Camping

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.

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!
