Heading east from Jackson, Wy

Any suggestions on a route from Jackson, Wy through Utah, ultimately back to Illinois? Places to see and / or campgrounds of note. We have10 days to make our way home. Thanks!

If you want to come through Utah I would do so by way of Lava hot springs and check it out. Other wise i would head straight into Evanston Wyoming and hit 80 back east bound. When are you headed this way? It is also Fair time and you may be able to catch some pretty cool small town celebrations along the way.

The southern Utah national parks are awesome and if you don't mind the heat (do siteseeing early mornings) here is a suggestion:

Take 191 south out of Jackson and follow it into northern Utah at Flaming Gorge Nat'l Rec Area to still stay in cool temps. Firefighter's (or is it Fireman's) campground is nice for big rigs - no hookups so come prepared. It overlooks Flaming Gorge.

Continue south on 191 to Vernal (a big downhill) and Dinosaur Nat'l Monument. Continue further south on 191 and now you have many options - head to Green River on I-70 then south on 191 again to Arches National Park and Canyonlands...great Jeeping.

..or at 191 at Wellington, pick up 10 to 72 to 24 at Torrey for Capitol Reef Nat'l Park - many RV parks in Torrey. Then Hwy 12 west to Bryce Nat'l Park - Ruby's RV is at the entrance. Take 89 south to Mt. Carmel and 9 west to Zion Nat'l Park. . . a steep downhill but many RVers do it. Try to stay in the park at Watchman campground (check for reservations) or in nearby Springdale at a RV park.

The list could go on and on because this is an awesome area to tour. You will also be close to Grand Canyon North Rim from Kanab, UT to Alt89 to 64 south. Or Take 89 into Page, AZ and Glen Canyon Nat'l Rec Area and continuing south on 89 (could take 64 west off 89 to the Grand Canyon South Rim) or directly to Flagstaff, AZ will take you to I-40 for your return home.

10 days is not enough time!

You could also drop into Bear Lake. There are campgrounds all the way around it and Garden City is a nice little town. The Lake is beautiful and don't forget to get a raspberry shake while your there.

Can we assume you have already done the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone? I would start there first. Black Hills would be on the way back. Yes you could go to Utah if you want to drive those extra miles. I see you got a Wrangler, Moab Utah has a lot of mild scenic trails for that Jeep.

Got to say I came out West from IL by taking US14 thru MN and into SD. Saw Laura Ingall's home, beautiful country, Piere SD, Wall Drug, Sturgis, Devil's Tower (amazing!). Stay off the interstate and SEE America!
