Nothing fires up a camper’s imagination like the wild abandon of Wyoming. Dotted with rodeos, ranches and preserved visions of the Old West, the Cowboy State is blissfully less populated than the rest of the country. The land itself is vast and dramatic, with two majestic National Parks – Yellowstone and Grand Teton – located 40 minutes from each other in the state’s northwest corner.
Throughout Wyoming, rolling mountains, windswept plains and sparkling alpine lakes form dreamy camping scenes that few states can match. Just be sure to plan your trip for high summer, as nighttime temperatures drop dramatically come September.
