PLAN A TRIP

Background

Best of the Wild West by Motorhome

11 nights motorhome rental including flights and one night hotel upon arrival

Prices change daily so call our expert team on 01159 610590
today for our best availability and deals. 

You will start in Colorado and travel through Wyoming, Nebraska, South Dakota and Utah, seeing where history was made. Meet heroes and heroines such as Calamity Jane, Buffalo Bill Cody, Indian Chief, Crazy Horse and visit breathtaking Mount Rushmore.

Remember that the earlier you book, the cheaper rental will be and the higher likelihood of securing the vehicle you would like.  


DAY 1 (of motorhome rental after previous one night hotel stay upon arrival)
DENVER TO CHEYENNE, WYOMING

Head north out of the city Where you’ll realise you are heading into different territory! Approaching Cheyenne, you will find it very much a Victorian town with red brick buildings along a wide main street. Your home tonight, we suggest, is the Cheyenne KOA.

127 miles – 2-3 hours


DAY 2 – CHEYENNE TO HOT SPRINGS

Travel into Nebraska via Scott’s Bluff National Monument and Chimney Rock on the way to Hot Springs, South Dakota. Both were welcoming navigation landmarks along the wagon trails to the West. As you come into Hot Springs, do look out for ‘Evans Plunge’ or one of the other freshwater, naturally heated, swimming pools that give the town its name. We suggest KOA Hot Springs tonight.

278 miles – 4 hours 30 mins


DAY 3 – HOT SPRINGS TO MOUNT RUSHMORE

Soon you will enter Wind Cave National Park by the south entrance and, as you leave through the north entrance, you come straight upon Custer State Park. A highlight may well be a herd of buffalo in the road!

In both parks you’ll want to stop along the way. Exit to the town of Custer then go north to the highlight of your day: Crazy Horse Memorial – the world’s biggest sculpture which is over 60 years in the making Sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski and Lakota Chief Henry Standing Bear launched the Crazy Horse Memorial in 1948. The Memorial’s mission is to honour the culture, tradition and living heritage of North American Indians.  Spend time there and, 20 miles further on, you will reach the Hill City/Mount Rushmore KOA, where we suggest you overnight.

66 miles – 1 hour 30 minutes plus stopping time


DAY 4 – MOUNT RUSHMORE TO DEVILS TOWERS

First point of call today is 6 miles away, the Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Linger for a while before moving on to Deadwood, the whole town is a protected National Historic Landmark.

Look out for the Old Franklin Hotel and, if you walk the back streets, some lovely original Victorian houses. Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane lie close in the town cemetery. Next on your route should be the breath-taking falls of Spearfish Canyon before crossing back into Wyoming and advancing toward Devils Tower 59 miles further on.  It has a mighty status: President Theodore Roosevelt proclaimed Devils Tower the first national monument in 1906. We suggest you stay at the Devils Tower KOA.

128 miles – 2 hours 20 minutes plus stopping time


DAY 5 – DEVILS TOWER TO SHERIDAN

Stop at Keyhole State Park and then continue northwest to Sheridan Big Horn KOA, your suggested home for tonight.

You may want to get there quite early for you are only one hour’s drive from the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. You’ll find other relics of the Indian wars near Sheridan, including the Fort Phil Kearny State Historic Site and the Fetterman Battlefield. There’s plenty to do at the campground too.

168 miles – 3 hours


DAY 6 – SHERIDAN TO CODY

Drive through the Big Horn National Forest to the town of Cody. Try to arrive by lunchtime at the Cody KOA then spend a pleasant afternoon at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center.

Before he was 30, Buffalo Bill Cody rode for the Pony Express, scouted for the US Army, hunted buffalo, guided royalty on big game hunting trips, fought in the Civil War and starred on the American stage! The Buffalo Bill Center houses five unique museums including the Buffalo Bill Museum, the world class Whitney Gallery of Western Art, the Plains Indian Museum, Cody Firearms Museum and the Draper Museum of Natural History.

Every day in June through August, the best cowboys and cowgirls from across the nation come to Cody to win big money and compete amongst the best.  This is a great rodeo to watch, full of fun and excitement and tough competition in bull riding, bareback, calf roping, and steer wrestling.  Tickets can be bought at your campground.

144 miles – 2 hours 10 minutes


DAY 7 – CODY TO YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK

It’s a memorable drive to the East Entrance of Yellowstone National Park! Established in 1872, this is America’s first National Park. You might drive though the park to the West Yellowstone entrance where just outside you will find the West Yellowstone KOA. Here you will have full hook ups and can drive into the park at leisure.

54 miles – 65 minutes


DAY 8 – YELLOWSTONE TO VIRGINIAN RV RESORT, JACKSON

Shortly after leaving Yellowstone you will enter Grand Teton National Park, drive alongside Jackson Lake with the splendour of the Grand Tetons to your right. Get on the road early because you’ll want to stop along the way and also spend time in Jackson Hole before arriving at our suggested campground.

The Virginian RV Resort is open May 1st through October 15th depending upon weather – so this really is a summer trip. You will be close to the National Elk Refuge and the town of Jackson.

65 miles from Yellowstone’s South Entrance – 1 hour 30 minutes plus stopping time


DAY 9 – JACKSON TO ROCK SPRINGS

Drive several miles through Teton National Forest, then across the Wyoming Range past the Great Divide Basin to your left before arriving at Rock Springs. Turn on Route 80 towards Green River and the Rock Springs KOA which is situated between the 2 towns. Just beyond the campground is the spectacular Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area.

179 miles – 4 hours


DAY 10 – ROCK SPRINGS TO RAWLINS

You’ll be heading east back towards Denver, with Rawlins as a rest stop to break what would otherwise be a long journey across Southern Wyoming’s ‘Red Desert’.

114 miles – 1 hour 50 minutes


DAY 11 – RAWLINS TO ESTES PARK

Continue driving west and after about 100 miles stop at the old western town of Laramie. There are towns, village and ranches along the route.

Estes Park KOA is 5 miles from Rocky Mountain National Park, a 400 square mile preserve of forests, meadows, tundra and mountains. Take a quick drive through or spend the day exploring the many mountain lakes and ponds.  There are Elk, Deer, Big Horn Sheep, Moose and the occasional bald eagle to watch out for, so well worth a visit.

202 miles – 3 hours 30 minutes

“We had an amazing holiday – it far exceeded our expectations. I would like to say thank you for organising our trip everything went like clockwork, from flights to hotel to motor home hire.

The national parks we visited in southern Utah and Arizona were amazing, so well done for making our holiday a trip of a lifetime, hope to use you again.”

The Rawson Party (Utah) -

“I just wanted to say thank you following our recent holiday. We had a superb time and have lots of happy memories of a wonderful 2 weeks. Thank you also for your flexibility and ensuring it went ahead smoothly.

Yellowstone and Jackson Hole are definitely a places we would like to spend more time in so we may be in touch again soon!”

The Halpin Party (Yellowstone) -

By way of observation, we thought the itinerary was excellent, covering a lot of ground and different aspects of the area’s geology but in a relatively unhurried way, leaving plenty of time to relax over a meal or by the pool. We also found the printed (and PDF) Travel Information booklet very useful.
