Discover Vernal, UT

Nicknamed “Dinosaurland,” Vernal is a strange but lovely mountain town in the northeastern corner of Utah, close to the Colorado state line. When you rent an RV in town and see just how amazing it is in person, it will remain an absolute mystery how there aren’t more people living there.

Vernal has the unique distinction of being one of the only towns in the state not founded by Mormon missionaries. After Mormon exploratory parties were sent to the area, they determined there was nothing of value in the harsh, desert lands of Vernal. Later, in 1868, the area around Vernal was set aside for the Uintah Native Reservation. After the first cabin was built in Vernal, lots of East Coast settlers began to pour into the area to make a new life for themselves.

When you book an RV in Vernal, there is truly no limit to what you can find and see in the magical state of Utah. The versatility of renting an RV is especially ideal in a state so packed with natural beauty that you couldn’t avoid it if you tried. The most populous area of Utah is centered a few hundred miles west of town by the capital, Salt Lake City. There you can find other interesting places to see, like Provo and Park City if you have the time and energy to do so.

The Great Outdoors

When you take your Vernal camper rental for a joyride around Utah, you are bound to see some epic sights and scenery. Few states in the country inspire more happiness than like Utah, and this is apparent everywhere you choose to go. The area around Vernal is composed of rugged mountain peaks, each one more breathtaking and sublime than the last. Steinaker State Park is a perfect place to get a feel for the exceptional beauty of Utah and is located only several miles north of Vernal. The park is centered around Steinaker Reservoir, a wonderful place to take a refreshing dip during a hot summer day. In addition to swimming, guests to the park may go fishing, take a boat ride on the lake, kayak, canoe, or even water-ski. RV camping is a possibility to when you rent an RV and take a trip to Steinaker Lake.

Red Fleet State Park is similarly centered around the Red Fleet Reservoir, giving you another exciting place to head to with your Vernal motorhome rental. This arid lakefront park up in the Uinta Mountains is truly a sight to behold, with the usual swimming, boating, and fishing available along the lake’s edges. On top of that, there are numerous dinosaur footprints embedded in the ancient rock of the park, a special treat for those who love learning about natural history and dinosaurs. Speaking of dinosaurs, Dinosaur National Monument is quite close to Vernal, and another hotspot for summertime tourism. The park features over 800 paleontological sites teeming with dinosaur fossils and footprints left behind by an array of prehistoric beasts. Much of the park is composed of rock formations created over a hundred and fifty million years ago, and you can see evidence of this in the ancient rock walls of the Green River Canyon in the monument. It isn’t just dinosaur remnants you have to look out for; there are ancient petroglyphs inscribed on the walls of caves, left behind by indigenous people thousands of years ago.

If you don’t mind hitting the road and driving south for several hours, you can see some of Utah’s spectacular national parks that are generally found by the town of Moab. Canyonlands National Park and Arches National Park are two of the region’s best places to see the clear night skies, mesmerizingly complex and devoid of light pollution. Both parks have a combined collection of thousands of natural stone archways caused by erosion over millions of years. You can hike through the park, explore natural canyons, or camp out in your Vernal RV rental when you take a trip to these fabulous nature parks.

RV Parks

One of the best reasons to rent an RV in Vernal is the sheer number of incredible RV parks in town. There are plenty of great places to choose from, like Fossil Valley RV Park, a family-friendly campground accommodating short and long-term stays. The park is open year-round, with paved camping sites, fire pits, laundry facilities, wireless internet, and more.

Western Heritage RV Park is a welcoming place. There are fishing areas, biking trails, space for boating, and a golf course for those staying at the park.

City Sightseeing

Vernal is equal parts interesting and complex, with a dash of charm and relaxing vibes tossed into the mix. When you pick up your camper rental in Vernal, you can find a variety of things to do while in town. Vernal has all the normal things you might expect in a town of its size, like restaurants, cafes, breweries, and retail shopping centers, but it is the history of the town that truly captivates you when you arrive. McConkie Ranch is a great place to see, with ancient petroglyphs that you can see on private property. These beautiful works of art are preserved in time, carved into a fantastic red cliff in the ancient lands of Utah.

Utah Field House of Natural History State Park is a great addition to your trip, further highlighting the natural history of Utah. Learn how the Martian landscapes of Utah were formed, or about the wooly mammoths and dinosaurs that once walked the land while you take a tour through its exhibits.

Uintah County Heritage Museum focuses more on the human history of the area, from the Uintah inhabitants who made it their home thousands of years ago to the pioneers who moved to harsh and unfamiliar lands to start a new chapter in their lives. There are different collections of old items from a wide array of different eras, from the days of the Wild West to the post-World War II years.

The most iconic thing to see in Vernal is perhaps the first thing you see when you enter the town. A giant, pink brontosaurus statue stands tall greeting all who enter. Children simply love to take a picture underneath the large monument, perfectly foreshadowing the experience you are about to have in “Dinosaurland.”
