We frequently park in one of the casino parking lots in Mesquite, just at the Utah/Nevada border. A little dinner, a little gambling, some sleep, breakfast and then hit the road again.

We did this trip 2 years ago in July. Las vegas was HOT, 120 plus degrees. We were going to stay about 20 miles north of St George, but it was still way to hot. We ended up in Cedar City at the KOA. 20 degrees cooler and a nice pool.

Good luck
Dennis

I make this trip at least once aa year. Best route to get to Boise is on 93. you will note a bypass part way up the state that is a good short cut. If you stay on 93 I would suggest Cathedral Gorge State Park. Beautiful area for a short stop over. There is a a casino park at Ely and a simple clean park in Wells. Not being in a hurry, I usually take the bypass and overnite in Ely or Wells. Get to Boise the next day. Also when you get near Twin Falls, be sure and head west on Hwy 30, through Bulh and the Hagerman Valley- beautiful springs flowing out of the cliff walls.
Have a great trip.

Thank you all for your tips. I'll be remembering you when we go. There's an RV park in North Las Vegas [Hitchin Post RV Park] I'm planning to stop at before we head up Rt. 93 to Twin Falls,etc

I assume that the "bypass" that shuffster is refering about is the NV 318/US 6 route between Ash Springs and Ely.

We travel that way twice each winter going to/from AZ. If you are afraid of going 100 miles w/o a fuel stop or seeing another vehicle only every 10 miles I would recommend just taking I 15, I 84 and I 86 to Boise. I would rather drive 100 miles out of my way than drive through Salt Lake.

About 5 miles north of Ash Springs at the Y junction of NV 318 and NV 375 (about ˝ mile west of the junction of US 93 and NV 318), there is a group of large trees to park under. This is the parking area for some of the workers (that don’t exist) that are picked up by a government van (that doesn’t exist) to take them to Area 51 (that doesn’t exist). NV 318 is a little traveled highway except for the trucks that come out at night. The only thing is that we have stayed there and we have seen the workers, their [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]cars[/COLOR][/COLOR] and the van. Or am I just dreaming?

I should have added to my post above that if you stay on US 93 that between Ash Springs and Caliente there is a small easy pass to go over.
Then between the junction of US 93 with US 6/50 and Ely (elevation 6427’) there is 7722’ Connors Pass, going this direction it is pretty steep.
NV 318 is very level and good road.
