Camping on the Continental Divide can be a great vacation. Stretching from the upper edge of Montana all the way to the southern tip of New Mexico, the Great Divide also runs along the Idaho border and through Wyoming and Colorado.
On one side of the divide, water flows east to the Atlantic Ocean. On the other, it heads west to the Pacific. Following the crest of the Rocky Mountains, it covers a diverse mix of scenery, from glacier-covered mountaintops to high-desert tableaus.
One of the best ways to enjoy a Continental Divide camping trip is by RV. With a Cruise America RV rental, you can see the wonders of the Rocky Mountains with all the amenities you could want - plus room for the whole family. With many types of RV rentals available, you can even sleep up to seven people with Cruise America.
There are several Continental Divide routes you can take with your Cruise America RV - including one through Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. At nearly 8,000 feet, Yellowstone's divide offers beautiful snow-capped peaks and plenty of wildlife viewing opportunities - elk, moose, even grizzly bears. Yellowstone RV camping is a great way to see the park year-round, whether enjoying the summer's endless blue skies or the winter's freshly fallen snow.
You can also enjoy Continental Divide camping in Glacier National Park, Montana - home of Triple Divide Peak, one of the only spots in North America where three watersheds met. From this stunning 8,020-foot elevation, water descends not just to the Atlantic and Pacific, but also to the Arctic Ocean via Hudson Bay. At the northern tip of Montana, Glacier National Park even borders upon British Columbia and Alberta. Cross over the border from Glacier and into Canada's Waterton Lakes National Park. With a Cruise America RV rental, you're welcome to take Canada motorhome vacationanytime.
