About
Step back in time and immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of Wyoming history with an RV camping adventure that promises not only rest and relaxation but an educational journey through the ages. Perfect for RV enthusiasts who love to blend travel with learning, our unique destination offers an unrivaled look into the past, set against the beautiful backdrop of Riverton. Our organization takes pride in being more than just a stopover; we are a gateway to understanding the local heritage and wildlife through an impressive collection of 26 wax figure dioramas, 62 full-body mounts of area animals, and a fascinating array of historical artifacts. From antique saddles and early 1900s-era farm equipment to the allure of the area's first homestead cabin and a traditional trapper's cabin, our exhibits span the breadth of local lore and history. Don't miss the opportunity to marvel at our captivating arrowhead collection and appreciate the craftsmanship of Western artwork, adding artistic flavor to your RV camping experience. The hallmark of our offerings is the guided tours, providing insightful narratives that bring Wyoming's history to life. And for those looking to take a piece of the West home, our gift shop showcases locally made treasures, perfect for commemorating your visit. For RV travelers, our location is easily accessible with a 13' 8" clearance at the entrance, ensuring most campers can enter without hassle. An alternate entrance is available, ensuring all our guests arrive smoothly. As you approach, be greeted by the charming sight of a ranch-style gate adorned with an elk skull, a quintessential Western welcome. The nearby chuckwagon stands as a beacon, guiding your way into an experience that goes beyond the ordinary RV camping trip. As a courteous reminder, we kindly ask our visitors to refrain from parking in front of the trash cans, ensuring a pleasant experience for all. Whether arriving from the north, just after the welcoming Riverton sign, or from the south, past Bailey's truck stop, finding your way here is a breeze. Detailed photos and an entrance map are available to guide you to our doorstep. Transform your next RV journey into an educational escapade, where the history of Wyoming unfolds before your eyes, nestled amidst the tranquility of RV camping.
