Northern Utah suggestions

Going to the Alpine SoCal rally at Zephyr Cove and then want to head east across Nevada to Utah. Any suggestions for places to visit in northern Utah and parks to stay? Thanks

Stop in Brigham City (Golden Spike RV Park) and go see where the "Golden Spike" was driven when the railroads met at Promontory, Utah.

Rick,

We stayed at the Pony Express RV Park in North Salt Lake. It is a very nice park, and surprisingly quiet for as close as it is to the freeway.

I agree with Barb, go see the Gold Spike National Historic park where the golden spike was driven. It is in the middle of nowhere! Take food and drink, as there is nothing out there for food. There are two beautiful operating locomotives, reproductions of the original locomotives involved in the ceremony. Worth the trip alone. You can also drive part of the original gravel railroad grade.

Also, go see the Kennecott Copper Mine southwest of Salt Lake City. It is massive!!

Park City is a ski resort, with summer activities such as hiking, an Alpine slide, and an Alpine coaster.

There is also the Hill AFB Aerospace Museum.

See you at Zephyr Cove.

Don't know about RV parks but Dinosaur National Park Southeast of Flaming Gorge is nice. I think it in the AAA magazine and they opened up the new visitors center.

All - Assuming most are older than I, but if 62 or better, you can save lots of park entrance fees by going to this site and reading about the Senior Pass.
Here is the link: U.S. National Park Service America the Beautiful

Utah has a visitors bureau, which you can usually find at the first rest area you pass when entering the state, if not, you can check via the net where there visitor places are, then get the state recreation guide, or visitors guide, and pick and choose where you want to visit, along with all the great other places in the state already mentioned. I plan on going home through Utah next spring, so once you have some good memories, please post here what the good ones are so I can also make some notes and add to the places I want to see.

THere is an AMAZING BLM camp right on the colorado river just off 191 in MOAB UT,
5 mi from Arches and 25 min from Canyonlands...Dry camp only though

The Photo above was in "Archview RV park"....notice ...NO SHADE, NO ARCH VIEWS...
While it was OK, if you need hookups I would choose one of the other parks in Moab a couple of miles further south, if not there is so much BLM land around the area.

BTW....Bring or rent ATVs...you won't regret it!

Great photos. A lot of small camp sites along the river on BLM land were under water in June when I was there, so I stayed in a campground just south of Moab. Your photos make me want to head there now, but the wifes says wait until Oct...
