Wyoming’s a good cheap travel destination because it offers visitors a chance to see the wonders of nature for free — or at least at a low cost. Here are five great Wyoming attractions for travelers on a budget.

1. Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone was ranked first on its list of “best affordable United States travel destinations” by U.S. News and World Report. The site said adventure-seekers agreed that the entrance fee — $25 for a private vehicle permit and $12 for someone entering by foot, bicycle, or motorcycle, with the permit remaining valid for seven days — is a small price to pay for a visit to America’s oldest national park.

Visitors can save money by doing their own cooking, using the campground instead of staying in a lodge, and visiting the park during the offseason instead of the summer.

2. Grand Teton National Park

Though Grand Teton National Park may not have as lofty a reputation as Yellowstone, the cost to get in is roughly the same. The fee for adults to enter is $25 for a private vehicle, $20 for a motorcycle, and $12 for someone entering by foot or bicycle, with the permit remaining valid for seven days, according to JacksonHoleWy.net.

3. Devils Tower National Monument

The entrance fee for adults entering the Devils Tower site is $10 for a private vehicle and $5 for someone entering on foot, by bicycle, or alone on a motorcycle, with the permit remaining valid for seven days, according to US-Parks.com. The site said campgrounds are open from April through October, weather permitting.

4. Beartooth Scenic Byway


No fee is charged for tourists to cruise along the Beartooth Scenic Byway in northwest Wyoming, which traveling journalist Charles Kuralt described as “the most beautiful drive in America.” The Wyoming Office of Tourism said the two-lane byway, which crests at 10,947 feet in Beartooth Pass, is Wyoming’s highest paved road and the only National Scenic Byway in Wyoming. The 680-mile byway winds its way through southwest Montana and northwest Wyoming and leads into Yellowstone National Park at its northeast entrance, according to BeartoothHighway.com.

5. Buffalo Bill Center of the West

Adults pay $19 each — or $17, if purchased online — for a two-day pass providing admission to all five museums offered at Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody — the Buffalo Bill Museum, Cody Firearms Museum, Draper Museum of Natural History, Plains Indian Museum, and Whitney Gallery of Western Art — plus the McCracken Research Library.
