While camping with an RV in Wyoming, do it right by staying at Buffalo KOA and treating yourself to the very best the campground has to offer. Buffalo KOA has a variety of RV sites to choose from with either pull-through or back-in access, and deluxe sites for added outdoor living comforts. On-site activities include a horseshoe pitch, pickleball courts, and a swimming pool. There is a playground for the kids and a spacious Kamp K9 pet park too. Propane and firewood are available for purchase should you want to prepare a home-cooked meal or just enjoy having a campfire, and a stream that runs through the park is where you can try to catch your evening dinner.
Whatever style of camper rental you choose, there is a site to match it at Buffalo KOA. You will have access to 30 or 50 amp electricity and water, sites that have full hookups and some with patios with or without furniture. At the end of a busy day, you can grab a shower and even wash your clothes in the laundry facilities. Many of the sites have at least some tree coverage, allowing you to sit comfortably in the shade and witness the stars at night.
All settled in? Good. Now it's time to see why Wyoming is such an incredible motorhome camping destination. Buffalo KOA is just a hop and a skip from downtown Buffalo, a city steeped in culture and history. Many of the buildings date as far back as 1804 and one of them, the Occidental Hotel, Saloon and Restaurant, has housed such celebrities as Calamity Jane, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Buffalo Bill Cody, former president Theodore Roosevelt, and others. You can stop here for lunch while taking in the history. The Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum (also known as the Great Medicine Man Museum) was a drugstore owned by Mr. Gatchell, who befriended everyone including local natives and was generously gifted by all of his friends. Following his death, family members donated the building to the city on the condition that it be converted to a museum recognizing the town's history.
Not far from Buffalo KOA, you will find the Big Horn Mountains. The RV campground is situated right at the foot of these mountains where you can hike and backpack along trails that lead you through the national forest and up to Cloud Peak Wilderness. Here you will find alpine lakes and vegetation that are both unique and beautiful to behold. Higher elevations may have snow and a chance of snow storms, so you should check weather forecasts and dress appropriately.
Also worth visiting is the Crazy Woman Canyon, a narrow dirt road with massive rock walls on either side. Native Americans often used it as a passageway and a staging area for war parties. Local legends about the naming of the canyon abound, and the truth of how it was named is unknown. The road follows the similarly-named Crazy Woman Creek.
The historical aspect goes into overdrive when you visit Fort Phil Kearny, a historical site that includes the fort and the sites where two major battles were fought during Red Cloud's War. The site is located on the Bozeman Trail, and there are a visitor's center and a museum where you can learn about the wars that were fought and other historical details. If you want to take in the scenery, there are interpretive trails you can hike and picnic grounds where you can enjoy the scenery with your meal. The visitor's center is open year-round during limited hours and by appointment, so you should call ahead if you plan to visit.
There are a reasonable number of gas stations, convenience/grocery stores, and supermarkets in the city of Buffalo, including one that specializes in health foods. When you book an RV in Johnson County, you have afforded yourself a hotel room on wheels with unparalleled views; put this to good use by taking a drive through the majestic Bighorn National Forest on your way to Worland. In this city, you will find the Washakie County Library, and the Washakie Museum and Cultural Center, ideal places to curl up with a book or take a more direct approach by viewing the museum's exhibits and other attractions.
If you drive your RV rental north from Buffalo KOA, you will find yourself in Sheridan, but you won't be the only one. Many people come here for the fishing and the trophy-size fish available, including angler and famed writer Ernest Hemingway. You will have access to largemouth bass, trout, crappie, walleye, and other fish species which could make for an interesting home-cooked meal. If your idea of fun is watching others have the fun, Sheridan celebrates its cowboy history with the Sheridan WYO Rodeo held annually in July; this long-running event brings in participants from all over the world and includes a week of festivities leading up to the main event.
Whatever your interests and intentions may be, Wyoming has something for everyone, and it all begins with camping at Buffalo KOA.
