Favourite parks in Wyoming

1. Yellowstone National Park.
The first national park in the United States and even the world, Yellowstone National Park has a special place in the hearts of many. From the abundant wildlife to the stunning hydrothermal features.
FAST FACTS
*Yellowstone National Park, at over 2.2 million acres, is larger than Delaware and Rhode Island combined! 
*It is home to more than half of the world’s active geysers. 
With so much to explore, you’ll want to set up a home base for your stay in Yellowstone. Every campground welcomes RVs.
2. Grand Teton National Park.
Grand Teton National Park is less well-known than its older neighbour to the north, Yellowstone, but its stunning mountain peaks, gorgeous lakes, and piney forest are not to be missed.
FAST FACTS
*The Grand Teton Mountain range is thought to be the youngest range in the Rocky Mountains and among the youngest in the world!  
*Elevation in the park ranges from 6,320 feet at Fish Creek all the way up to 13,775 feet at the top of Grand Teton. 
Camping in the Grand Tetons is exquisite and offers incredible backdrops of mountain, forest, and lake depending on where you set up.
3. Glendo State Park.
On the other side of Wyoming sits Glendo State Park, a go-to location for water recreation. The reservoir brings guests looking for great boating, watersports, and fishing.
FAST FACTS
*A fisherman’s paradise, the reservoir is one of the best walleye fisheries in the state. 
*The reservoir covers 12,000 surface acres or over 18 square miles, but the water levels vary throughout the year.  There is no shortage of great campsites at Glendo State Park.
With 19 different campgrounds and more than 500 campsites for tents and RVs.
4. Fossil Butte National Monument.
Fossil Butte National Monument is very different due to its high desert setting. Enjoy being on a 50-million-year-old lakebed, home to an incredible number of Palaeolithic era fossils. 
FAST FACTS
*In the summertime, join the Quarry program to start searching for fossils yourself. 
*This area is one of the richest fossil locations in all of the world.
There is no camping allowed directly in the park, but stay nearby at the Riverside RV Park or across state lines at one of the numerous campgrounds alongside Bear Lake.
