I could have paid the entrance fee of just $12-, but I wasn't sure whether or not it was safe to drive in the semi with 53' trailer, so I parked outside for free. As it turned out, I could have safely driven in and out, as there is a sizeable loop at the RV parking lot. Nevertheless, I haul a noisy refrigeration unit, so I was just as well that I didn't disturb the peace of other campers. Didn't look at the facilities closely, but they seemed pretty modern from a distance. Call the ranger for more details, or check the website link below.
Right at the Devil's Tower National Monument is a very nice KOA RV and tent campground. There's an outdoor movie theater, swimming pool, restaurant, and grocery store. I tried to park for free in the huge lot, but decided to move back up the hill when the owner wanted to charge me $28 for an overnight parking spot. RV hook up costs $56-. This is the only option outside the gate. But, then, there's the option of camping inside the park.
At only 1 hour 30 by Devils Tower, Gillette is a good solution to stay in the region. The hotel is very nice with a great pool with slide. A good way to relax after a hard day's walking.

There aren't many choices for motels in and around Devils Tower and only two in the tiny town of Hulett, Wyoming.
The Best Western appears to be a rather new hotel and has a western theme. There are two stories and only stairs to get to the second floor. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The room comes with a microwave and our room had a frig. We got a room facing away from the parking lot which had a view and was more quiet than being on the state highway.
There is a complementary breakfast in the morning. What was surprising was that many of the choices were fresh fruit which given the isolation of the area was surprising. Several good choices in their little breakfast nook.
The staff here were very friendly and helpful. There is a computer for use in the lobby area. There is also a hot tub and indoor pool. The motel also has an exercise room which is nice.
Nice and clean best western with friendly staff.
We got to Devil's Tower Lodge just at dinnertime, we were welcomed like old friends and invited to sit down with all the other guests and staff in the sunroom at the back of the house. Now as homey as this sounds, and actually is, dinner or lunch or any other meal besides breakfast is $10 a person so be prepared for it to show up on your bill. I say this not to deter you, for the dinner you will enjoy is better than any resturant and surely worth it, but just to make you aware. After a wonderful dinner and a peach cobbler and friendly conversation, we retured to our room, the very beautiful Burning Daylight room, which is sorta billed as a honeymoon suite. It has a private entrance and gorgeous views of the Tower for you to wake up to. The only downside to this room is the ultra firm bed...ok it's hard as a rock, but other than that it's wonderful. The adjoining private bath does not have a tub, just a standup shower stall (I wonder can it be a honeymoon suite without a tub??, but I digress)
We woke up in the morning for Sunrise photos, sadly the sun decided not to join us, and then returned to the Lodge for breakfast. Our stay was short but sweet, and we will most certainly be back!
The most Unique thing about the Devil's Tower Lodge are the fantastic people who own and run it. Frank, the owner and your host, is an avid climber, he once climbed the tower 17 times in one day! Whew! They are very enthusiatic about climbing and will take you up to the top happily.
There are great accommodations in Sundance, Moorcroft and Hulett, which is only nine miles from the tower. The towns have grocery stores, specialty stores, services and restaurants. There is even recreation in the form of parks, tennis courts and golf courses. With several motels along the highways.
