Phillips RV Park Turns 80

Wed Aug 17, 2016

EVANSTON, Wyoming — The Phillips family, who owns, manages and operates Phillips RV Park, is celebrating the business’ 80th anniversary this summer.

Over the past eight decades, the park has physically changed, but the family’s desire to stick together and create a lasting impression on their customers has not.

During the spring of 1936, Phillips Camp and Sinclair Service was established in Evanston by Bona Elbert and Maggie Phillips. The business offered gas service, trailer spaces, tent camping and 11 cabins, with adjacent open garages available to people traveling the Lincoln Highway. Customers shared a community bath and shower house with running well water.
