Wyoming is a playground for those who love outdoor recreation. In fact, the first-ever National Park, designated in 1872, is Yellowstone. And the first-ever National Forest, designated in 1891, is Shoshone. And the first-ever national monument, designated in 1906, is Devils Tower.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, there’s also the 310,000-acre Grand Teton National Park in Jackson and 10.5 million acres of forest, as well as over 4,000 lakes and reservoirs.
With all this to take in and so much more, there’s a lot of reasons to visit the Cowboy State. For where to stay during your visit, see below for a list of the best cabins to rent out:
