Lake Tahoe to Bryce Canyon

Hello Everyone-

My husband and I are going to be traveling from Lake Tahoe to Bryce Canyon this summer. We are planning on driving east on route 50 and stopping at Great Basin National Park for a few days. Does anyone have any recommendations of things to do or see along this route? Otherwise we are thinking of e just driving directly to Great Basin N.P.

Thanks in advance for any information or advise you can offer.

Safe travels,

Wonderful trip it sounds like!

Just a beautiful place Lake Tahoe is. Won't be much help on the other part of your trip but when you are at Lake Tahoe just a few suggestions for you and your husband. Emerald Bay is very nice and several things to see and do there. The Vikingsholm mansion is really nice to see and the Tahoe Queen in Zephyr cove is fun for a daytime trip or an evening dinner cruise. Just some ideas and hope you enjoy your trip and safe travels this summer.

We just left Bryce this week - I don't have suggestions for the trip route but we were surprised the park was very crowded since schools are still in session. I'd suggest you make reservations for where ever you plan to stay in the Bryce Canyon area

We went from Arches National Park to Tahoe, on Highway 50 "the loneliest road inAmerica"
for Floridians, it was spectacular, a post card picture every 1/2 mile.

Nothing to stop for. Only Raw, Spectacular Beauty. Stayed at Upper Laymon Campground (mountain Stream at our campsite)in between, but the trip was one of the highlights of our 12k mile run last summer.

We stayed at the municipal campground next to Lake Tahoe-Big trees, Restaurants & groceries nearby (walking distance). The locals show up at the lake(just across the street from the campground), cook out, Frisbee, kids on skateboards, kids walking tightropes, Great adventure

We were also at Bryce this week. Stayed at Ruby's Inn RV Park. The section we were in was not even 1/4 full. Most rows were empty.
If you have a big rig, this is the park to stay at. Satellite access is no problem. Very easy access and LARGE pull through sites. Need to pack a lunch between the coach door and the fire pit. Might be a tad more expensive but IMHO, worth every nickel.

Lehman Cave in Great Basin NP is worth doing. Other than scenic beauty along Hwy 50 there aren't a lot of attractions.

Your MH won't fit in Great Basin by the way.
