The great state of Wyoming is the least populated of all of the states, but holds the title as 10th largest state, meaning that if you just want to maximize your time away from work by enjoying the great outdoors, and not having to chat too much, then Platte River RV and Campground could be the perfect place for you.

One top pick in Wyoming itself would have to be Yellowstone National Park, packed with stunning sights and wildlife to observe. It’s not just bear-spotting you should do while there; make your vacation one to remember for a lifetime by visiting one of the many geysers of the park, stop and appreciate the wild bison grazing in Lamar Valley, hike Uncle Tom’s Trail, and of course, stop by the Yellowstone Lake for a picnic.
Did you know that there are almost 20 museums in the immediate vicinity of Platte River RV and Campground? Take your time to explore the Tate Geological Museum in Casper, the Wyoming Pioneer Museum, and the Crimson Dawn Park and Museum (open mid-June through September). In fact, you’d better make this RV rental vacation near Casper a slightly longer one, to make sure you can see everything the area has to offer.
If you’re on a family vacay and the kids aren’t quite old enough to appreciate everything that the museums have to offer, fear not. The area is famed for its ranches, and dude ranches can provide a whole host of fun to families of all ages. If sports are your thing, consider heading into Casper and watching the local ice hockey team play at their home rink; there’s nothing like supporting a local team to get to know the town, even if you’re only planning on being in the area for a week or two.
But what about the times when you want to get out of the RV rental and do something, but don’t have the energy for a great big adventure? Consider an afternoon at the movie theater. With not one, not two, but three adorable and incredibly old-fashioned cinemas in the vicinity, you could even try them all out while you’re in town. Or if you have a little energy for adventure, you can head over to the miniature golf course for some pint-sized fun.
After a fun evening at the movies, the chances are that you will have worked up an appetite. There’s only one problem you’ll have, and that's deciding where to eat. There are just so many great options, with barbecue, diners, fast food, pho, pizza, seafood, sandwiches, and pancakes, just to name a few.
Wyoming sure has a lot going for it; in fact, it’s one of the most down to earth and adventure-filled options you could go for, so what are you waiting for? It's time to search for an RV in Converse County.
