Wyoming KOA Campsites Open to Domestic & International Travelers

Written by on May 13, 2020

Campsites in Wyoming’s state parks open this Friday, but Kampgrounds of America are already open.

Kampgrounds of America Inc. announced that 13 of their locally owned and operated Wyoming campgrounds are now open for anyone seeking an outdoor escape. As is to be expected, they are enacting special COVID-19 protocols to ensure everyone’s safety while simultaneously being open for business. These include altering cleaning procedures, offering unique social distancing activities, offering contact-free check-in and more.

Jean Mickelson, the Manager of the Cody KOA, says that private campgrounds have been open since May 1st, but the Governor lifted the order restricting nonessential out-of-state travel on May 8th. This means, while the state campgrounds will be limited only to Wyoming residents, KOA and other private campgrounds will be open to anyone, including national and international travelers. Mickelson says that most of their camping sites are reserved by essential workers doing construction and other projects. Reservations for June and July are lower than years previously, while August and September reservations are higher than average for this time of year.

Wyoming’s state campsites will be open on a first-come, first-serve basis to Wyoming residents starting this Friday.
