RV Rental Yellowstone National Park

One of the best outdoor adventures in America has Yellowstone National Park as the destination. For many the best way to visit this natural beauty is by renting an RV. This way more time can be spent in a natural setting.

There are more than 3,500 square miles of natural space in the park for visitors to enjoy. A majority of the sites in the park, like Old Faithful are the results of this park being a giant caldera, or the crater of a super volcano. While still semi active, the chances of it erupting anytime soon are remote.

The Natural Attractions of Yellowstone National Park Await

The wildlife is also abundant throughout the park. To help keep the visitors safe this entire national park is a no hunting region. The only game visitors can catch and kill for food are fish. This has allowed for the moose, deer and bison herds to grow and can be regularly seen by the visitors.

The national symbol, the Bald Eagle is also present in an abundant number. They can be seen swooping down for a meal of fish out the streams. There are also wild horse herds galloping in areas of the park. What has to be remembered, these are wild horses and no one should attempt to ride one, even if one could be caught?

In remote areas of the park are the natural predators. This includes the famous grizzly bears, mountain lions and there are packs of wolves that scavenge off the land. These animals are monitored by the park rangers, but visitors should still avoid them.

Campervan Rental Camp Grounds in the Yellowstone National Park 

Staying overnight in Yellowstone National Park is always memorable. This can be done in one of the 12 RV camp grounds already set up. 7 of the 12 camp grounds are operated by the US National Park service. They do not accept reservations and operate on a first come, first served basis.

The other 5 camp grounds are operated by a private company. These campsites are places for those that plan their vacation and would like to make a reservation. The locations include the Fishing Bridge, Bridge Bay, Canyon, Grant and Madison.

All of these sites have a size restriction of the RV to be less than 40 feet long. Only the Fishing Bridge has electrical hook-ups for RV tenets.

Closest RV Rental Pickup Point is Billings

You can pick up an RV Rental from Billings, Montana, the aptly named "Gateway to Yellowstone," welcomes you with open arms (and RV rental keys!). But when it comes to reaching the park's geysers, canyons, and wildlife spectacles, you have two epic journeys to choose from:

  • Beartooth Highway: A Scenic Thrill Ride (May-October) :  Gear up for drama: Wind through mountain passes and alpine meadows, with jaw-dropping vistas around every bend. This 130-mile, 2.5-hour drive on Highway 212 (bypassing Laurel, Roberts, and Red Lodge) culminates in the legendary Beartooth Highway.
  • Highways 90 & 89: Reliable Access, Year-Round (Always Open) : All-weather adventure: This route, clocking in at 170 miles, takes you directly to the North Entrance of Yellowstone via Highways 90 and 89. Rain or shine, snow or sun, you're guaranteed access to the park's wonders.

RV Rental pickup points near Yellowstone National Park

The renting of an RV does not occur at the park which is located in Wyoming, so the pickup location of an RV has to be some distance away. The closest place is in Billing, Montana just 130 miles northeast of the park. During the months from May to October, most RV users take Highway 212 then the Beartooth Highway to reach the park. This path will take on average 2 ½ hours that zig zags through the mountain passes.

The next closest location for picking up an RV is Salt Lake City, Utah. This location is southwest of Yellowstone National Park
park, approximately 320 miles away. The routes to take can be highway 15 or interstate 89.

Another popular jumping off point is Reno, Nevada. This place of origin is more scenic for the trip north taking up to 12 hours to cover the nearly 800 miles. There are multiple paths that can be taken depending on how many mountain passes are taken or if strictly staying on the interstates is followed.

From the plains, many begin their journey westward in Omaha, Nebraska. This path makes it possible to view the Rockies at a distance as you approach them from the flat plains. This will take over 14 hours and travellers will cover more than 700 miles.

Seattle, Washington is another place an adventure to Yellowstone can originate from. This path takes the travellers over the Rockies. The northern route east covers more than 700 miles and can take up to 12 hours.

A holiday in the beautiful Yellowstone National Park is memorable. One major word of caution is to remember there are bears present. They can smell food up to 10 miles away.
