Your Motorhome Holiday
Day 1: Denver (110 miles)
Collect your motorhome and make your way towards Cheyenne, Wyoming – the capital city and gateway to Cowboy Country.
Suggested Campground: Camp Cheyenne
Day 2: Wind Cave National Park (270 miles)
A long drive across featureless, tumbleweed strewn country. But have faith, it really is worth it once you cross into South Dakota. The suggested campground has no hookups, showers or amenities but deer and buffalo roam to the fence. Coyotes howl but otherwise the silence is deafening and the stars are never brighter. There are other full facility campgrounds to choose from if you prefer.
Suggested Campground: Elk Mountain Campground
Day 3: Mount Rushmore (40 miles)
Everyone knows of Mount Rushmore, one of America’s icons. Fewer know the Crazy Horse Memorial, a giant mountain carving of the famous Indian Chief. Please don’t miss visiting either of them!
Suggested Campground: Mt Rushmore Resort and Lodge
Day 4: Devils Tower (120 miles)
“The Deadwood Stage was comin’ on over the hill” probably carrying Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane! Don’t miss it; and enjoy a pint at the Old Franklin Hotel or even Kevin Costner’s bar…he fell in love with Deadwood when making ‘Dances with Wolves”. Close encounters of a third kind? You remember the movie? Well the location was Devils Tower.
Suggested Campground: Devils Tower KOA
Days 5 & 6: Cody (315 miles)
This sounds like a long drive but it is mostly on the Interstate so you should be at the Buffalo Bill Historical Society in Cody shortly after lunch. It may sound boring – but please don’t miss it! You are at the gateway to Yellowstone National Park.
Suggested Campground: Ponderosa Campground
Day 7 & 8: Yellowstone National Park (100 miles)
A stunning drive through Shoshone Canyon to the eastern entrance to Yellowstone National Park. It’s then a gentle forty miles to Grant Village and your campground. Expect occasional traffic jams. That’s when the folk ahead stop to view the wildlife. It could be a Moose with its young, a bear or a group of deer. People just stop and look at interesting wildlife. Just before Grant Village, turn right to Old Faithful – so named because this geyser faithfully shoots thousands of gallons of boiling water around 150 feet into the air at predictably regular intervals through the day.
Suggested Campground: Grant Village Campground
Day 9: Grand Tetons (40 Miles)
22 miles further on brings you out of the South Entrance of YNP and into Grand Teton National Park. You only have to look at the Colter Bay website to see the majesty of the Grand Teton Mountains. Open June to Sept, this is not a cheap campground; but the location makes it worth it.
Suggested Campground: Colter Bay RV Park
Day 10: Lander (140 miles)
Drive away from the Grand Tetons through the Great Divide Basin to the town of Lander. On your journey you will pass through The Wind River Indian Reservation, home of the Shoshone and Arapahoe Indian Tribes.
Suggested Campground: Sleeping Bear RV Park
Day 11: Laramie Wyoming Territorial Park (235 miles)
The name Laramie conjures up pictures of the wild-west doesn’t it? With good reason. In its early days, Laramie was such a riproaring railroad town that it made good sense to build the territorial prison here. At the Wyoming Territorial Park, you can still peek into cells where desperados such as Butch Cassidy once did their time.
Suggested Campground: Laramie KOA
Day 12: Fort Collins (75 miles)
For your last night on tour, you’ll be staying in Fort Collins: the town that the 2006 Money Magazine designated as the best place in the United States to live. Located in the foothills of the Colorado
Rocky Mountains this is somewhere to relax after all the spectacular sites and sights of the last few days.
Suggested Campground: Fort Collins Lakeside Campground
Day 13: Depart Denver (60 miles)
Head back towards Denver where your motorhome adventure comes to an end. After returning your vehicle to the depot, make your way to the airport for your flight back to the UK.
