RVing At Devils Tower National Monument

RVing At Devils Tower National Monument


We never travel near Northeastern Wyoming without stopping to hike around one of our favorite (and most accessible) natural wonders – Devils Tower. It’s a great place to camp and one of the best bang-for-the-hiking-buck spots we know. It’s hard to find places where you can see something so dramatic without much walking required.

Devils Tower was proclaimed our very first National Monument by President Teddy Roosevelt in 1906, and we can sure see why. As you approach the area for the very first time and see the tower appear on the horizon, you’ll get a shiver up your spine. It just looks so surreal.

The campground at the base of the monument is first-come, first-served, with nice shade trees and plenty of sites that can accommodate even the largest RVs. If you really need hook-ups (like during intense summer heat) there’s a commercial RV park right outside the monument. Whenever possible, we prefer to dry camp right in the shadow of this amazing rock formation.

You’ll also see lots of prairie dogs here. They’re all along the entrance road and you’ll hear them everywhere.

Devils Tower was featured in the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

This, too, is wonderful information. Thank you. I have now wathed all of your trip videos - I think. They are very good. I did, however, have a problem finding them as your "Trip Tips" seems to be only at the bottom of your home page in a gray print that is no so very easy to read - maybe it's just my screen.
