The Great Outdoors

If you have decided to make Wyoming your next vacation destination, the chances are that its gorgeous parks and campgrounds are what you are after. Prepare to fall in love with national parks and forests, beautiful beyond your wildest dreams when you rent an RV near Glendo Campground. Before you hit the road, make sure to make the most of Glendo State Park. Aside from its 500-site campground, there are hiking trails, biking paths, and plenty of open space to explore. Nearby Guernsey State Park also benefits from having a lake of its own, where guests may go swimming, kayaking, canoeing, boating, or fishing, among other things. The park isn’t only a nature park, however, with dozens of historic cabins and structures built by the Civilians Conservation Corps during Franklin Roosevelt’s presidency.Thunder Basin National Grassland is a short drive north of the campsites at Glendo State Park, with over a half-million acres of prairie and grasslands containing a surprising number of plant and wildlife species. There are no developed campgrounds when you bring your campervan rental to Thunder Basin National Grassland, but camping is allowed. Hiking, biking, hunting, fishing, and sightseeing are welcomed at the grassland too.Wyoming is home to some of the country's best national parks, over in the northwestern corner of the state. Take your RV rental to Grand Teton National Park for some memorable moments, and some epic camping in the Teton Mountain Range. Rock climbing is the main reason for visits to Grand Teton National Park, but snowboarding and skiing in the winter months remain its calling card.Yellowstone National Park is thought to be the first national park ever established in the world, dating back well over a century. Here you can see breathtaking geological features like Old Faithful, a powerful geyser that erupts periodically, sending a plume of steaming hot water high into the air.

City Sightseeing

While city sightseeing might not be your main priority when you rent an RV near Glendo Campground, nearby Douglas has some neat attractions, restaurants, shops, gas stations, and other necessities to check out while you're here. The Douglas WWII P.O.W Camp is a fascinating historical resource that often flies under the radar. You can learn lots about World War II, and the thousands of German and Italian troops held prisoner after being captured.Fort Fetterman State Historic Site helps uncover a different, older era of history, dating back to the days of the pioneers. The Old West is alive and well at Fort Fetterman, with a few old buildings full of artifacts that you can tour while learning about the past from park rangers.Both the Douglas Railroad Museum and the Pioneer Memorial Museum continue this history-themed tour, with lots of valuable information regarding the formation of the town, the importance of the railroad industry, the historic buildings of Douglas, and the, at times, tense relations between the Native Americans of Wyoming and the European pioneers pushing westward. When you book an RV in Platte County, you can even venture off to the state capital, Cheyenne, or other historic towns in Wyoming.

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.
