Hundreds of different flowers can be found within 15 miles, and most across the street and in the meadows and pastures around us and next to Henry's Lake or along the streams.

Whether you photograph them or just like to experience them first hand including their delicious smells, we can offer a large menu. Flowers start in late May and peak in early July, but many persist the summer.

Geocaching in the Greater Yellowstone Area

RedRock RV Park is a great base camp to explore the beauty of the greater Yellowstone area through the sport of GPS geocaching. So many places to place caches and so many places to have fun finding them. This new sport is especially attractive to RVers due to the ability they have to travel so far and wide in search of those elusive coins, travel-bugs, and mysterious hidden caches.

IDEA: USE YOUR ATV to geocache from RedRock RV Park!

Geocachers will know that certain tools of the trade are important on a search:

  • A reliable GPS or GPS phone with geo-caching software;a pen or pencil (for signing logs);
  • Tweezer for micro-cache logs;
  • Printed information about the cache if you don't have internet coverage, esp. the hints or attributes of the cache;
  • Water, jacket, and plenty of fuel for your vehicle, batteries;
  • Follow your common sense and nose and let the GPS be a tool (don't follow it into danger!)
  • Bring your own geocache to hide!
  • Remember the rules. You must get permission on private or protected land (Federal or State or County)!

Some people collect the attractive geocache coins that you'll sometimes find in a cache or by trading. Others just like to fill up their "dance card" by finding all the caches in an area. What better area to "conquer" than the Greater Yellowstone Area. Consider leaving a few caches for your fellow travelers to find too! To get started read the geocaching.com instructions on HOW TO geocache courtesy of geocaching.com. Another great guide on geocaching here (pdf, 1.8 MBytes).

Read more about using your iPhone or Android phone for geocaching. Look at a map or a list of the nearby caches.

After the Find:

  1. Sign the cache logbook.
  2. Leave the cache as you found it (hidden, of course).
  3. Log your find at www.geocaching.com.

Off-Season at RedRock RV Park

Take advantage of our discounted web special and join us at RedRock RV Park for the relaxing transition from late winter into spring or late summer into fall in some of Idaho’s most beautiful landscape. Just look at some of the experiences and activities that you can enjoy in the off-season here:

  • You can still go to Yellowstone National Park, and it is NOT JAMMED WITH PEOPLE!
  • You can take some drives in the area and see Idaho’s amazing fall colors or beautiful snowy peaks. Ask us about which drives are best.
  • See the early spring wildflowers in bloom and the White Pelicans nesting on Henry's Lake in spring.
  • Get out of your car periodically or take some walks or hikes and hear the elk bugling in fall and the Sandhill cranes “talking,” and other sounds of wildlife here.
  • If you truly love to fish, drive over the small hill behind our park and visit Henry’s Lake (less than 1 mile away), cited as “the best trophy trout fishing lake in the world” where you can fish with the local people who know that the fishing is best in the fall.
  • By the end of September the Sand Hill Cranes and others are migrating away. Come see them as they get together to migrate from Red Rock Lakes Nat'l Wildlife Refuge nearby.

Bring a group of friends to share your experience.

You get our low end-of-season rates, and your chances of being placed close together are better than in the earlier months of the season when we are so busy (we can’t guarantee this, but we’ll do our best for you).

Or you can just sit outside or inside your rig and “hang out” in our quiet haven. We may even have a potluck or two.
