Moab without a Jeep . . .

. . . and with a dog?
We are taking our first trip away from the SoCal desert in June.
A couple sure stops are The Grand Canyon and visiting friends in Denver.
In between we are still iffy. One potential stop is Moab, after reading up
on the area, we are wondering if it is worth doing just to see the parks that
time of year, or is it going to be too crowded for leisurely sightseeing?

I've been to Moab several times, never with a Jeep (this year I will because I now have one). Each time we go we enjoy it a little more. If you like photography you will never get tired there. Be aware that your dog can't go on any of the public trails/walks and it only allowed in the parking areas. Mine always stay in the RV because of that. Go - you won't be disappointed.

So, the dog CAN stay in the RV? The RV park websites make it sound as though you can't leave 'em unattended at all. That is good to know, thanks . . .
. . . What park?

We went last year without a Jeep and found this Unimog Tour.
Front Page

He welcomes Dog's on the ride and does a real thrilling job of it.

Highly recommended.

But you will find in the National Parks the Dog is not allowed.

For some reason my response to this went to the Help Desk!!!!!

Anyway, I've never been to a RV park where I couldn't keep my dogs in the MH as I went sightseeing. If a place tells you you can't they are doing it for liability reasons only. Just go somewhere else. If RV parks refused to allow people to leave their dogs in their RVs they would lose customers like flies because all of us want to do some sightseeing and can't do it at all times with our dogs.

I stayed at Portal Rv park in Moab but there are several good parks in the area. I recommend you check www.rvparkreviews.com to see what others recommend.

I highly recommend stopping in Moab on your trip - even without a jeep. There is lots to see and do in that area. The parks are beautiful and the jeep riding doesn't take place inside most of the parks anyway. There are many good camprgrounds in that region as well, as Golden mentioned above. Make sure the a/c is working in the coach that time of year...

Go to Arches NP, leave the dog in the RV. Don't miss Deadhorse State Park You can bring the dog there. Don't miss "island in the sky" in Canyonlands NP, if you take the dog there , he must stay in the car. In the southern part of Canyonlands NP a 4x4 is necessary, as it is needed to climb Elephant Hill which is about the first thing you come to
