Wind River RV Park is located approximately one mile east of Highway 789/26 on E. Park in Riverton.

You can never go home, but there's nothing that says you can't take it with you. RV's are an obsession for many Americans as a way to see their own country. The vehicles come in a variety of models, from custom vans to huge Class A land yachts.

Banks, at least view them as second homes and offer long-term interest rates. But it's a far cry from camping when you have VCR's, air conditioning and real carpeting, diehard RVers will point out.

One of the finest places to park a "rig" is the Wind River RV Park. Based on one rating scale, it ranked in the top 28 in the United States and in another, it was named the best in Wyoming. In 1999 it rated as one of the top 17 parks nationally. That's why Joe Pepper, Park Manager said, he has a return business rate of 22 percent.

When you walk into the place, Pepper and his staff treat you as if they know you. One man from a small town near Laramie was shocked when he stepped in, not expecting the outpouring of friendship. Here you'll find 60 full hookups, teepee's, shade trees, very large pull-thru sites, and everything else you would expect out of a place to park your roaming "home".

The park started a few years ago by a couple from California and can take up to 60 RV's. Pepper said it has showers "nicer than many people have at home," cable TV, a commercial laundromat, the maximum amount of electricity for power hookups.

Most customers are on their way to Yellowstone or the other national parks, but Pepper said if they get within 100 to 150 miles of this park, they will find their way there, allowing national RV magazines and the rating guides to work their magic.

"The ones who come here want to be here." Pepper said.

The RV Gift Shop is unique in this area. In Wyoming there are many excellent artists and crafters who use the winters to perfect their work. The store prices are far lower than found in the major tourist areas. Getting into the mail order business was not a part of the original store plan. Many RV'ers have called the park after getting home to purchase items after seeing prices in the tourism centers. You are welcome to peruse the store and ask questions about the crafters and the local area! You can find jewelry, gifts, horseshoes, flutes and more!
