The Great Outdoors

When you're camping at Bear Canyon Campground, you'll want to journey down to Yellowstone National Park. This vast national park stretches into three states and covers more than 3,000 square miles of beautiful countryside. There are hundreds of things to see and activities to get involved in here, and one of the most famous sights is the steamboat geysers, which shoot water over 300 feet into the air. Another popular attraction is the mammoth hot springs, where mineral-enriched water has sculpted nearby limestone into colorful rocky terraces. Many people also visit Yellowstone to appreciate the park's diverse wildlife. There are over 60 different species of mammals and 330 species of bird inhabiting the park, including two bear species, bison, and bald eagles.There are some unique state parks near Bozeman, and one of the best in the region is Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park. This park features prairies and woodlands surrounding a beautiful limestone cave system.

If you'd rather stay above ground, this 3,000-acre park has plenty of hiking trails to explore, and the park also features an impressive visitor center where you can learn more about the caves and the park's history. The Jefferson River runs through the southern section of the park and is a popular spot for fishing and canoeing.If you want to see some more of the local wildlife during your campervan rental vacation near Bozeman, consider a trip to Greycliff Prairie Dog State Park.

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.
