Looking for a way to Map from Michigan To Las Vegas?

Hello fellow RV's We are leaving on December 26th from Michigan to Las Vegas We are wondering if there is a site anyone could reccommend or help in routing us on our trip with where we could stay, good parks etc... We are wanting to take the south Western route to Las Vegas, leaving from Michigan. Is there anyone who might be able to help us in our first RV adventure. We just purchased a 2004 Travel Supreme Select.

Thanks In Advance,
Bob and Cindy

You could use Good Sam trip planning

It will give you a suitable route and list campgrounds and driving times and distances along the route.
If you combine this with google maps and or streets and trips you can't really go wrong

Do you own an iPad? I use an app called AllStays. It is basically google maps with campgrounds, fueling stations, walmarts and other stuff important to RVers. I have found this is the best app out there. I find a campground that is the distance that I want to travel that day, then I cross reference the CG with rvparkreviews.com to see what other RVers have to say about it.

+1 on AllStays. It is the most used app that I have for trip planning. We used it extensively during the last 5000 mi trip and I was surprised at some of the nice places we found to camp.

I just drove from Allendale to Tucson to Portland via Las Vegas. There was no problem finding places to stay, although I have to admit I boondocked most of the time. I don't think you can miss if you just take off and follow your heart.

Hello from the Kalamazoo area. Sounds like you are about to debark on a wonderful adventure.

From our area it takes about 6 hours to get to St. Louis. I'm guessing that would be about 8 hours from your area. We generally go through the Chicago area and then down across Illinois to get to St. Louis. For you it might be better to take 69 down from 94 through Indianapolis and then across 70 to St. Louis. I believe it is the Casino Queen in East St. Louis that has a nice rv park, very easy in and out. There is a shuttle from the rv area to the casino.

From there cross the river and take 44 down across Misouri to Tulsa where you pick up I-40 west. You can stay on 40 all the way to Kingman, Arizona and then swing up across the Hoover dam and into Las Vegas.

We figure it to be a 4 day trip out there without any sight seeing along the way. There are several points of interest along the way you may want to explore. Once you hit St. Louis you will be loosly following the path of route 66. The drive across Oklahoma adn the Texas panhandle can be fairly flat and boring. As you get into New Mexico you will be approaching the mountain areas.

At this time of year you may run into some snow in the higher elevations. Although you will be far enough south it shouldn't be a major problem. Plan on extra time for unforseen weather problems.

You will be passing by the Petrified Forest / Painted Desert area, of course a side trip to the Grand Canyon is always worthwhile.

Wish we could join you on your adventure, but we are stuck here in Michigan until the weather warms next spring. Our wheeled chateau is parked along side the house fully winterized and ready to serve as emergency housing if the power goes out during the winter.

X3 on Allstays. The IPad app for them is outstanding.
