RV TRIP TIP: Devils Tower National Monument

New RVgeeks Feature! “RV Trip Tips” showcasing great RV destinations.

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.

Full-Time RVers since April 11, 2003, we share DIY (do it yourself) RV maintenance, repair, travel, upgrade and operational tips & tricks.

While we’re not RV technicians, we’re very mechanically inclined and have learned a lot about RV systems over the years. We’ve handled most of our own minor service, maintenance and upgrade work on both of our RVs.

We meet lots of newer RVers who are eager to learn some basics about using, maintaining and caring for their rigs. After more than a decade on the road, we’re happy to share what we’ve learned (some of it the hard way). 😉 We hope our experience can help other RVers go DIY, saving time & money while experiencing the satisfaction of a job well done.

We are not professional RV technicians and do not pretend to be experts on any particular topic. We mostly know about maintaining our own motorhome, so be sure to confirm that all methods and materials used are compatible with your equipment. Every RV is different, so your systems may not be the same as ours. Regardless of what we recommend, consult a professional if you’re unsure about working on your RV. We encourage you to do your own research. Any task you perform or product you purchase based on any information we provide is strictly at your own risk.
