Casper, Wyoming was settle on the banks of the mighty Platte River in the mid 1880’s. As the point of convergence for all major westward trails – the Oregon, California, Mormon, Bridger, Bozeman and Pony Express – the community developed as a crossroads to the West.
The immigration was followed by the discovery of an abundance of natural resources in the entire state. Incorporated in 1889, Casper was already known throughout the region as the energy hub of the Rockies.
Casper East RV Park and Campground is located on the east side of Casper close to the state’s capital’s largest mall. STAY WITH US WHILE DISCOVERING ALL CASPER HAS TO OFFER!
