The Great Outdoors

Pick up one of the RV rentals in Teton County and begin your trip by taking a ride in your RV rental to nowhere in particular just to experience the thrill of driving one. Then, when you're ready, head towards Caribou-Targhee National Forest; Caribou-Targhee is a multi-use nature preserve that is spread out over the states of Idaho and Montana as well as Wyoming. Timber is selectively cultivated from the land in order to maintain the balance of the ecosystem and provide timber to local communities. It's an ideal location for mountain biking and hiking, with numerous roads leading to dozens and dozens of off-road trails just waiting for you.Yellowstone National Park is slightly unique from other parks in that it is a hydrothermal park with geysers that erupt. It is open seasonally, and hours vary, so you should check ahead to find out when it's open to the public. Once you're here, you can hike the park following elevated pathways constructed from wood and other materials. These walking routes allow you to access the park and see its ecosystems up close without damaging the plant life (so you should be careful not to step off of the paths). You should bring a pair of telescopes (or a camera with a telephoto lens) in order to get a better view of the wildlife that resides here.Shoshone National Forest was the first national forest in the USA, having been established in 1891. The terrain ranges from lowland sagebrush to rugged, snowcapped mountains, with areas of exposed rock appearing randomly amongst tree stands and open meadows. Hunting is allowed in the park, so you should exercise caution while visiting (you can confirm hunting season dates with park management). There are campgrounds within the park, hundreds of miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking, picnic sites, and several scenic byways that pass through, allowing you to appreciate the landscape from the comfort of your camper rental.

Exploring The Area

While Wyoming is renowned for its epic landscapes, you should also spend some time here experiencing the history and culture. Jackson is a good place to start; it has a trail, Antelope Flats, not far from the town where you can hike without challenging yourself. Along the trail, you can enjoy viewing the Grand Teton Mountains, and hopefully, some antelope as well. Jackson's town square is decorated at each of its four entrances by an archway made of elk antlers (the Boy Scouts created the arches from antlers shed by the animals). Art is important in Jackson, which has at least one nature art gallery and a museum of wildlife art; it has a nature preserve, an elk refuge, and a seasonal rodeo. Jackson is close to a number of popular ski hills and has hosted several celebrities.Teton Village is a smaller community with an aerial tram that takes you to the top of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, an iconic ski resort where you can hike and mountain bike in the summer; you can also hike or climb to the resort and then take the gondola back down. An open gondola takes you to the top of a nearby mountain with breathtaking views, and there is a day spa where you can pamper yourself (by now, you'll have earned it). Teton Village is a good choice for dining with a range of service levels up to fine dining, a wide variety of cuisines, and settings ranging from picnic tables to romantic interiors.Teton County has everything you're looking for in a remarkable vacation, from great dining and panoramic scenery to all the fresh air you can handle, and a campsite at Colter Bay Campground is where it all begins.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
