Sheridan / Big Horn Mountains KOA

The Big Horn Mountains dominate northeastern Wyoming, rising abruptly from the state’s flat plains to form jagged, snow-covered peaks near the Montana border. In the summer, an extensive trail network provides hikers with endless backcountry exploration options. In the winter, skiing and snowboarding are possible at Antelope Butte and Meadowlark Resort ski areas. Book an RV in Sheridan County, and you'll have the ideal way to explore this fascinating slice of the state while having the freedom to roam between the area’s attractions.Sheridan/Big Horn Mountains KOA is a fantastic place to stay when renting an RV as it’s also located about halfway between Yellowstone National Park and Mount Rushmore. The park has a great selection of amenities, including full hookups with 50-amp electrical capacity. Got a big rental RV? No problem, this RV campground can accommodate rigs up to 150 feet in length. But where the park really shines is in its recreational opportunities. The KOA has a mini-golf course, a dog park for exercising your four-legged pals, and fishing access on Big Goose Creek (assuming you have a proper state license). There’s even a hot tub and sauna to soothe your achy muscles after a big day of exploring the nearby Big Horn Mountains.

The Great Outdoors

The Big Horn Mountains will be the main attraction when you rent a camper near Sheridan/Big Horn Mountain KOA. Along with the Tetons near Jackson and the Wind River Range a bit farther south, the Big Horn Mountains is a first-class wilderness area that should be on any hiker's bucket list. There are too many trails to choose from, but Shell Falls is a great place to start. This easy day hike takes you to a 120-foot-tall waterfall nestled into a narrow granite canyon.If you’re not up for a trek though, several scenic highways run through this mountainous landscape including the Bighorn Scenic Byway that connects Sheridan to the town of Greybull. Driving its entire length shouldn’t take more than a couple of hours, and the road is wide enough to accommodate longer RVs.A great day trip when motorhome camping in Sheridan is the Bighorn Canyon Recreation Area near Lovell. It’s about two hours' drive from Sheridan, but worth the trip to see this striking geological feature cut into the sandstone, not unlike the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Kayaking and canoeing on the lake are quite popular, and there are a few Forest Service campsites in the canyon that are only accessible by water. Hiking trails ring the canyon’s rim and are relatively flat and suitable for all fitness levels.The Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument in southern Montana is another popular destination, particularly among history buffs. This is where General Custard had his last stand against the Lakota-Northern Cheyenne tribes. The white grave markers serve as a reminder of the costs of war and the soldiers who were lost in the name of America’s westward expansion.

Exploring the City

Sheridan is an interesting little town to visit with your RV rental – part cowboy town, part outdoorsy town, and part railroad town (with a little bit of old railroad baron money thrown in for good measure). No matter what kinds of activities you enjoy, you’re sure to find something fun to do when you camp in an RV near Sheridan. You can start with a food tour – just walk down Main Street, and you’ll be bombarded with delicious options like Mexican, Japanese, and tapas. But if you’re looking to eat more local, chicken-fried steak and fresh Wyoming beef are the way to go.While frontiersmen and cowboys were the original founders of Sheridan, it was the railroad that built the community into what it is. To learn more about Sheridan’s history, pop into the Historic Sheridan Inn. Famed Wild West figure Buffalo Bill Cody was a financial partner in the hotel’s early days and auditioned new acts for his Wild West Show on its front porch. Today it’s open for banquets, weddings, and meetings, but the staff are happy to give visitors an informative tour of the building when asked.To see the ritzier side of Sheridan, stop in at the Trail End State Historic Site in the middle of town. The Kendrick family once owned this opulent mansion in the early 20th century. Today their home is open for guided and self-guided tours that are full of exhibits laying out the rich Kendrick family history along with their role in the development of Sheridan.If you’re interested in exploring your inner cowboy, then you’ll have to drop in at King’s Saddlery and Museum in Sheridan. Their exhibits paint a fascinating picture of what life was like for cattlemen back in the late 1800s: roping, driving, and surviving on the harsh Wyoming plains. If you’re experienced with horses, you’ll love browsing the wide selection of historic leather saddles on display.

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.
