The Great Outdoors

Big Horn National Forest is full of impressive mountains and vast forests, and one of the best ways to experience this huge wilderness is by visiting the Antelope Butte Recreation Area. This park lies on the side of Antelope Butte, a snowy mountain that stands at 9,400 feet above sea level. As a result, tourists flock to the area during the winter months to try a wide array of winter sports, including snowboarding, skiing, winter fat biking, and much more. During the summer, there are many trails to explore, which afford stunning views of the valley and surrounding the Big Horn Mountains. There are also zip lines and scenic stairlift rides for those looking for more adventurous summer activities.There are some state parks away from Big Horn National Forest, which are worth visiting while camping near Shell. Hot Springs State Park is another popular destination for tourists and is one of the most intriguing state parks in the country, thanks to its hot springs. These mineral-filled hot springs reach temperatures of 128 degrees Fahrenheit, and the minerals in the water have helped shape the surrounding land into a sea of colorful hills and terraces. The park contains a free bathhouse where you can bathe in these therapeutic waters. There are lots of trails in the park and even a suspension bridge where you can get a good view of the Big Horn River. During your walk, keep an eye out for local wildlife, including herds of bison.While renting a campervan in Wyoming, you might want to head north to Montana. Montana is full of sprawling wilderness, and one of the most popular nearby parks is Tongue River Reservoir State Park. This 600-acre park is full of open prairies and canyons surrounding the Tongue River Reservoir. The reservoir is a popular spot for watersports, including boating and fishing. Anglers will be in paradise here, and many state-record catches have been hooked in the lake. Species here include pike, bass, and crappie. If you take a stroll around the lake, you might spot some of the park's local wildlife, including osprey, antelope, and blue herons.

Exploring the City

Shell campers will no doubt want to venture to Billings. There are some fun excursions for all ages in Billings, including ZooMontana. This small zoo features roughly 100 animals, both local and exotic, and some of the most interesting critters include Amur tigers, red pandas, and Canada lynx. The zoo runs classes for adults and kids so they can learn more about protecting some of the park's endangered animals from extinction.If you want to learn more about the local way of life, consider a trip to the Western Heritage Center. This museum is housed in the old Parmly Billings Memorial Library, which features beautiful architecture with two sandstone twin towers. The museum contains over 35,000 artifacts that display how Western civilization has progressed over the last few hundred years. Visitors can take guided tours, and tour guides tell stories about the local area.Billings also features the Yellowstone Art Museum. This art museum focuses on regional and historical art, and it is a great place to learn more about the local area. There are over 7,000 pieces in the museum's permanent collection, with work by well-known artists such as John Buck, Richard Notkin, and Isabelle Johnson.

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.
