110 Carter Ranch Road, Thermopolis, WY 82443. Phone: (307) 864-2997.

This museum is fun and educations. Kids love seeing real dinosaur fossils. You can just walk around the museum, which coulld be an hour or two and also go out to see the excavations. A grad student takes you out in a van to the dig site. It's just like in Jurassic Park, well the beginning of the movie, which takes place in nearby Montana.

Thermopolis Wyoming Seasons, bugs, topography and climate

Located in the Rockies and at the edge of the plains, Wyoming has both landscapes. In the summer, it tends to be semi-arid, hot during day and cool at night. Winters can be brutally cold. Many roads are closed or impassible in the winter. Bugs are thankfully few!

Camping tips

If you're not from the Rockies, you may not realize that even in the middle of July, the air gets cool at night when you are a mile high, like in Yellowstone and the Tetons, and much of western Wyoming. It will dip to the 50's or 60's most summer nights. Summers tend to be dry with occasional popup evening thunderstorms.

There's a nice campground right at the edge of town, convenient to everything! Eagle RV Park; they do have a few spaces for tents at the back which are very nice.

There are both state parks and private campgrounds.
