What to bring on your RV trip to Wyoming

We are so excited you’ve decided to come visit us in Alpine, Wyoming! Whether this is your first RV trip or your 100th, there are a few things you should consider packing for your trip out here to Wyoming. 

For your RV: 

Alpine Valley RV Resort is equipped with full hook-ups! We’ve got water, electricity and sewer available at each RV site, so you can leave your generators at home.

  • You will need a fresh water hose and a sewer pipe in order to tap into our lines. However, if you forget yours at home or it gets damaged on the road, we have some available for purchase in our office.  
  • The RV sites are equipped with fire rings. If you’re looking for that cowboy cooking experience- you can find it here. Just don’t forget your hotdogs, roasting sticks and matches if you plan on grilling out!
  • Our park sits right at the mouth of the Snake Canyon with some great views of Bridger-Teton National Forest, so you will definitely want to pack your camp chairs to thoroughly enjoy the views! PS- we recommend a fire and a beverage to get the full relaxation experience!)
  • We have a brand new grocery store right next to our park, so don’t worry about forgetting any ingredients to those fireside meals. Broliums is a short walk from the resort to grab whatever you need. 

 

 What should you pack to wear on your visit to Wyoming?

Great question! Northwest Wyoming is  can experience all 4 seasons in one day (Not Kidding!) Due to our low humidity, a typical summer day consists of a cool morning, hotter temperatures in the afternoon, then a comfortable, cool evening. Layers are your friend! In the May and early June, you might get some rain or even snow (it’s snowing out now as I write this in May!). Overall, July and August tend to be drier and hotter. 

  • If you plan on doing anything outside, we recommend a good pair of hiking shoes or boots. Any other outdoor gear such as a trekking pole, water bottle and bear spray are available for purchase in Alpine if you plan on doing some serious hiking in Grand Teton National Park or the National Forest.  Also don’t forget about fishing gear!
  • If you plan to go on a white water trip, wearing your swimsuit makes getting into the wetsuits much easier. Additionally, the Palisades Reservoir is right across the street from our park and you may want to get out on the water, so a swimsuit is a must! 
  • Bring a jacket or sweatshirt. If you like starting early like we do, the mornings tend to be quite chilly, so a puffy jacket is the perfect item to keep you warm until the sun comes up!
  • Don’t forget to pack a pair of comfy sandals! After a long day on the trail, you will want to get out of your boots and let your toes breath. 
  • Although it may never feel too hot here, the sun is very strong so don’t forget to bring sunscreen and remember to reapply.
