Downtown Kemmerer Wyoming

Nearby Hotels & Lodging

The closest towns to the Fossil Lake Safari are Kemmerer and Diamondville, about 30 minutes away.  These are small towns with a combined population of about 3,000, so your options are limited.  There are half a dozen hotels and motels located here, but these tend to fill up fast during the summer months.  We would recommend booking as far ahead as possible, to make sure you have a room.  We recommend the Best Western Plus Fossil Country Inn And Suites followed by the Antler Motel.  After that the quality starts to decline pretty quickly.  

Airbnb options are very limited in Kemmerer. There is the Opera House Suites with three, loft style two bedroom apartments for rent in downtown Kemmerer. Currently you can find these listed on VRBO There are several RV parks and some limited camping options.  Again, these tend to fill up fast in the summer, so don’t wait until the last minute to plan your trip if you want to stay close by.

After Kemmerer your next good hotel option is Evanston to the South about 1 hour and 20 minutes away from the quarry.  Given that this town is along I-80 there is no shortage of hotels and restaurants to choose from here.
