The Great Outdoors

Sinks Canyon sits at the southern end of the Wind River Range, which is where nearly all of the state’s tallest (and glacier-covered) mountains are located. It’s a favorite among backpackers, particularly those who like their solitude as the Winds are not yet plagued with the crowds seen farther north in Grand Teton. Day hikes are a little harder to find, though, as most of the trails involve some serious mileage. The six-mile trip to Big Sandy Lake is relatively doable, though, due to its nearly non-existent elevation gain.If you’re a climber, then you’re going to love getting a campervan rental in Sinks Canyon. The imposing cliffs that frame Sinks Canyon are a climber’s dream; if you don’t know how to climb, there are plenty of capable guides in Lander who can set a route and teach you the basics.While it is a bit of a drive at two hours, Grand Teton National Park should definitely be on your itinerary when you get a rental motorhome at Sinks Canyon Campground. The high peaks offer rugged adventure to those with the stamina and experience to climb them, but there are also plenty of highly accessible hikes around the Jenny Lake area that are perfect for day-trippers. Should you not want to get out of your RV rental, there’s also the option of driving the 42-mile scenic loop through the park, which links Highway 89, Teton Park Road, and the Jenny Lake Scenic Drive. The landscapes are spectacular, providing hours of photo ops, and it’s also a good place to look for wildlife.

Exploring the City

Lander is the nearest town when you choose an RV rental near Sinks Canyon Campground. Like most towns in Wyoming, it’s quite small, but as the gateway to the Wind River Range, it’s well-stocked with a number of stores to stock up on essentials and restaurants to fill your belly before leaving civilization. The town’s cuisine tends towards American diner food, but there are a few Thai and Chinese restaurants thrown in for variety.The Museum of the American West is one attraction worth checking out when you camp in an RV near Lander. It’s set up like a mini-Wild West town complete with log cabins, antique farm implements, and a town hall. It’s all volunteer-run, so you can bet that the staff will be enthusiastic to answer any and all questions you might have about pioneer life in the Wyoming Territory. The Fremont County Pioneer Museum on Main Street is another attraction to visit if you haven’t had enough wagon trains and homesteading. Many of their exhibits have more of a focus on the Native Americans that inhabited this corner of Wyoming with jewelry, animal hides, and historical documents showing trades made between the tribes and settlers on display.If you’re an equine lover, you’ll want to make the trip out to the Wild Horse Sanctuary on Highway 287 when you book an RV in Fremont County, Wyoming. The horses housed there are wild, so there’s no riding involved, but you can take a tour of the facilities and learn about how these beautiful creatures are cared for and how they got there. Additionally, this is a good spot to pick up souvenirs as the sanctuary has a gift shop selling handmade Native American crafts.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


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.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


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.


How does check-in work?


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.
