The western state of Wyoming has a rockstar list of attractions, including the infamous Yellowstone Park, Rocky Mountains, and a wilderness desert home to a campground with a welcoming charm.
Red Desert Rose Campground invites you to stay a day, week, or make it your permanent home. The hosts are motivated and ready to help RVs get connected to electricity with a choice of 20/30 or 50 amp, plus sewer and water. Their rates are scaled so you choose how you want to camp, with full hookups including wifi and cable TV being offered at $35 a day.
You can pitch a tent and if you’ve never camped under a desert sky you’re in for a starry night surprise. Each site has a fire grill and picnic table.
RV sites are cozy with gravel pads and pull-through access. The camp provides a picnic table and use of tidy, modern restrooms, showers, and a laundry. This is a desert setting, so trees are scarce, although landscaping features pretty, flowerbeds and bushes dotted around.
You can use a gas barbeque, and propane is available at the store along with ice cream for the kids and souvenirs to take home. It’s been said the hosts offer treats to the pets that campers bring along, which is a caring thought and appreciated by their owners.
A large, fully fenced park makes for tail-wagging fun as pups get to play off-leash with toys and owners watching over them. In order to keep campgrounds opening their hearts and doors to our furry friends, it’s courtesy to supply litter bags and pick up your pet pal's waste. The general rule is for a dog to be on a leash no longer than 6 feet in length when outside the RV or puppy run. Keep your pooch well hydrated and under cover, as temperatures soar in this part of the country.
Even in the desert you can have fun with classic horseshoes and mini-golf, or browse through the library right after your free morning coffee. That’s just for the grown-ups, as kids get an awesome playground and pedal cars for entertainment.
Road trippers appreciate the friendly hosts who make this campground a pleasurable experience. It is close to a highway, and you'll be able to hear some traffic noise. Busy times are when the rodeo fair is on in Carbon County, plus holidays and summer break.
