Staying in Wyoming

We're looking at a trip this summer from Colorado up to Wyoming. Any recommendations on where to stay in WY for beauty, fishing and a 5 year old kid in the mix.

Are you looking for full hookups?
I know quite a few forest campgrounds in WY, some have power, most don't.

The Dubois, Wy area is overlooked by many because it is considered kind of off the main routes but is a great place to start. Jackson is getting too crowded and expensive for my taste. Of course I remember it from 1954 when I was a kid.
Several CG's between Dubois and Moran and within striking distance of Yellowstone.
Here is the link to a nice CG.

There is a great little KOA in Greybull with easy access to the bighorn mountains. Lots of neat of great things to do in the bighorns.

One of my favorites, Falls Campground...




And up between Cody and Yellowstone there is Wapiti...


And they all have drive through sites for large trailers/motorhomes.

Cody, WY

There is so much to do in Cody during the warmer seasons, a world class museum, fishing, mountains, and it is the Eastern Gate to Yellowstone. Also, nice RV Parks (they fill up quickly)...lots of history.

And Cody has a great three section dog park. One part on the reservoir for all size dogs, one large dog area and one small dog area. However, it is hard to find the first time.

There is also a great boarding kennel/ day care just on the other side of the airport. Great place to leave your dog if you are taking a day trip into Yellowstone. They have air cond runs and take really great care of you four legged family member. I will have to look up the name as it has been a few years since we used them.

Well, our preference there, and one of our overall favorite areas, is the National Forests West of Sheridan. No hookups though . . . If you are looking for electricity and a playground, that isn't the place.

Another highlight for Cody is the nightly rodeo (not dark yet). Every night during the summer there is a rodeo. Not a big buck rodeo but a rodeo none the less. There is a calf capture contest for the children ( open to all the children that want to be part of it). It's sometimes very funny and lots of fun for the parents. Nice place Cody. At least that's the way I remember it.

We stayed at Buffalo Bill State park just west of Cody which is on the reservoir. Beautiful scenery and a quick drive back to town. We did the museum tour which was really interesting and the wild west shoot out reenactment in town was cool. Our teen kids liked both.

I believe some sites may have power; but can't say for sure. I didn't need it, so didn't look to see if some of the sites had power or not. The three axle Raptor in the site next to me I believe had power.
Dubois is about 30 minutes away east of the campground.
Quiet place to camp.

If you decide to stay in Cody,WY there are several RV Parks...they all have good reviews. In no particular order they are the Ponderosa, Absaroka Bay, KOA, Buffalo Bill State Park, and the Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park. All are in Cody except the Yellowstone Valley Inn which is much closer to the East Gate of Yellowstone Park. All have good reviews. If you have not been to Cody WY you are missing out on one of the best places to visit during the RV season. The Buffalo Bill Museum is world class and takes two days to go through it (they give you a two day pass.) The Irma Hotel is a place you don't want to miss, they have good food and Buffalo Bill built it over 100 years ago. They have an old west gun fight every night during the season and most visitors love it. They also have a rodeo every night at 8pm 7 days a week. And a whole lot more to see and do. Also, don't miss the free tour of the Buffalo Bill Dam, just a few miles west of Cody on the way to the park. When it was built, it was the highest concrete dam in the U.S. When you walk out on it and look over the side you will see what I am talking about. Hiking, fishing, the drive from Cody to the park is very scenic and enjoyable. We have seen buffalo, big horn sheep, elk, deer and prong horns on our way to the park many times. And yes, we have seen Grizzly Bears too. Go to Google and type in Cody WY and see what comes up If you haven't been here, give it a try. I think you will enjoy it.
