The Great Outdoors

When you rent an RV near Western Hills Campground, you'll be surrounded by the stunning nature of Wyoming and a flurry of recreation areas that you can visit with ease. Glendo State Park surrounds the Glendo Reservoir, a majestic lake ideal for swimming, fishing, boating, kayaking, and canoeing along with other things. There are campsites by the water that you can choose from if you feel like taking a mini trip away from Rawlins, as well as a system of trails that are often used for hiking and mountain biking.Guernsey State Park is quite close to the Glendo Reservoir, also home to a lovely lake fully stocked with fish for you to catch and cook. Swimming in the refreshing lake is a fabulous way to beat the midsummer heat. An on-site history museum takes guests on a tour through time, explaining the origins of the park, Civilian Conservation Corps, and the large amount of work that went into building these public recreation areas. Another place you can visit when you're camping at Western Hills Campground is Steamboat Lake State Park to the south, just over the border in neighboring Colorado. This breathtaking park has a 1,000-acre reservoir lined with boat ramps and marinas and evergreen forest as far as the eye can see. Birdwatching, hiking, boating, fishing, swimming, and camping along the shores of the lake make this a popular destination in the warmer months.If you have had your fill of lake parks, try making your way up to northwestern Wyoming over by Jackson. There you can see two national parks that are not only popular on the state level but nationally recognized for their beauty and history. Grand Teton National Park is named for its massive Teton Mountains which are home to world-class skiing, snowboarding, and rock climbing depending on the season. Large lodges and campgrounds are open to guests of the park, so don’t be afraid to take your campervan rental to this mesmerizing, federally protected area. Yellowstone National Park is one of the most well-known nature parks on Earth, thought to be the first national park of its kind anywhere on the globe. The park brings in millions of people each year to see its stunning geysers, sulfur pools, geological formations, and volcanic activity in addition to its lush landscapes and wildlife.

City Sightseeing

Rawlins is a small town surrounded by majestic terrain and is a nice destination for sightseeing, with all the amenities and features you would come to expect. Restaurants, shopping areas, museums, historic sites, and more await you when you book an RV in Carbon County. The historic buildings are a real treat, like the Wyoming Frontier Prison once used to house notorious criminals and outlaws during the days of the Old West. This massive brick structure was built in 1888, becoming the state’s first prison. Now it is used for tours, educational purposes, and filming for Hollywood productions.Tully Park is a charming little spot on the edge of town where train aficionados stop and observe the passing locomotives. Being home to one of the nation’s largest train yards makes Rawlins a destination for train enthusiasts, so don’t be surprised to see large groups of trainspotters at Tully Park.One of the most interesting uses of your time while visiting Rawlins is the Carbon County Museum which provides visitors with an assortment of facts and information concerning the formation of the county. Over 30,000 artifacts and items can be found adorning the halls of this intimate collection space, like tools used by pioneers, or artwork and weaponry crafted by local Native Americans. The well-trained staff give fabulous tours of the space, and even children love this engaging museum in southern Wyoming. There are many other places to check out if you don’t mind driving to Cheyenne or Rock Springs, but you’ll find more than enough when you rent an RV near Western Hills Campground and remain in the area.

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.
