Looking to escape the crowds and immerse yourself in impressive natural landscapes? Pitch a tent in Wyoming, one of the least densely populated states in the USA and home to spectacular natural wonders, including Tower Fall at Yellowstone, Jackson Lake at Grand Teton National Park, and the Hot Springs State Park. Here are some of the best camping spots – bookable on Culture Trip.

Grand Teton National Park might not be able to compete with Yellowstone National Park in size – it’s 485sqmi (1,256sqkm) compared to Yellowstone’s nearly 3,500sqmi (9,065sqkm) – but it does have a much more secluded experience, away from crowds. The park itself offers mountaineering, hiking and backcountry camping, as well as Ranger Programs on everything from park ecology and bear safety to geology. Looking to go camping without sacrificing comfort? The nearby Glamping of Jackson Hole campsite boasts six luxurious safari-style tents and an on-site chef.

If you want to immerse yourself in the wilderness surrounding Jackson Hole without giving up creature comforts, Glamping of Jackson Hole is the campsite to book. There are six safari-style canvas tents with comfortable memory foam beds, furniture and lighting, alongside toilets, heated showers and access to electricity. All meals are included and prepared by the on-site chef using local ingredients – think rustic ranch cuisine served in the dining tent overlooking the Snake River Range and trailside lunches on the complimentary daily horse rides. There are also many hiking and mountain biking trails.

The city of Powell in Park County, Wyoming, lies in the Bighorn Basin and offers a convenient gateway to Yellowstone National Park. Given the location, it’s no surprise that there are all sorts of recreation and adventures on offer for outdoor enthusiasts – think mountain trails for hiking, biking and horses, rivers and lakes for fishing and water sports, and epic slopes for skiers. Absaroka – a campsite half an hour from the nearby town of Cody, home to unique attractions such as Old Trail Town – has three 12-acre (5ha) sites where you can pitch a tent in the heart of the Wyoming wilderness.

    The town of Cody is home to the Buffalo Bill Center of the West – and the area remains at the heart of Wyoming’s cowboy culture today. This secluded campsite in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem is just 35mi (56km) north of Cody and has spectacular views of the Shoshone National Forest, the Absaroka Range and the ranches along the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone River. The 12-acre (5ha) site offers bare-bones camping at its best, meaning campers will need to bring all of their own gear.

    The Absaroka Beartooth Grizzly Campsite is the second of three 12-acre (5ha) campsites on this sprawling piece of wilderness, located one hour south of Billings, Montana. The private site offers the perfect opportunity to escape into nature, and you’ll find hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, fly fishing and horseback riding nearby. Want to get a taste of the area’s fascinating history? Visit the town of Cody, which is just a 35-minute drive away and is home to the Buffalo Bill Museum, the Draper Natural History Museum and Old Trail Town, a recreated frontier town.

    If you’re searching for a camping spot that offers absolute solitude, book one of the three Absaroka campsites in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Each one offers 12 acres (5ha) of pristine wilderness, where you can pitch a tent and enjoy the spectacular sunset and sunrise, stargazing and expansive views over the nearby Shoshone National Forest, mountains and the Yellowstone River. The Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone River is known for its fishing – you’ll find plenty of rainbow and brown trout, grayling, mountain whitefish and both Yellowstone and Snake River cutthroat.
