Dan,

We just spent over a month doing what you want to do in 10 days! Since you are coming from SoCal, I'd suggest starting near Cedar City to visit Zion and Capital Reef. Then I'd take Scotty's suggestion and move to Kodachrome Basin State Park as a base to see Bryce, Escalante and a bunch of less well known but very interesting areas.

Koadachrome is one of our favorite parks: great views, spectacular scenery and lots of trails to hike with the dogs. Kodachrome has both full hookup and dry camp sites, although most of the large ones have at least power and water.

Kodachrome is a few miles off the main road. An alternative in that area that is closer to a town is Wide Hollow Reservoir State Park campground in Escalante, but there are only a few sites big enough for your coach, so reserve early if you want to go there. Escalante is the "big" town in the area and about the only place for food shopping.

Thanks Bob, sounds like a very good itinerary.

I take it from your signature that these places take the larger rigs....

Regards,

Dan

Dan,

We stayed at Willow Wind RV Park in Hurricane to to visit Zion NP because our daughter lives in St. George. Great park. Size is not an issue.

We stayed at Panguitch Lake NF North campground when we visited Cedar Breaks and Bryce, and stayed in site 20. (Kodachrome is actually closer to Bryce). Site 15 might be the best one in the campground if available. Panguitch is on Reserve America, so you can check site length. It's a lovely park in a great area. Dump and fill water tank before entering campground. The dump station is near the ranger station just outside of the campground.

I don't think there is a bad site in Kodachrome. Most of the sites with hookups will easily accommodate rigs over 40'. Several of the others will too.

My notes on Wide Hollow indicate just two sites that we would fit in, A and D. There might be a couple of others, but I'd suggest calling the campground first.

Cheers,

Bob

We start at Richfield. We take hwy 24 to Capitol reef. Move to Panguitch and take Hwy 12 to Brice and Grand staircase Escalante, Kodachrome,and Red Canyon. then to Kanab. Staying at Kanab you can take in Zion and the north rim of the grand canyon. Then thru Page to monument valley. Up to Moab. Stay at Moab and see all three points of Canyonlands and Arches
