Utah

We are planning a family trip to utah in middle of Sept. Plan to visit Arches Canyonlands Bruce and Zion. We are looking for rv parks in these areas but have not found vacancies yet. Does anyone know of rv parks to recommend? Also any route suggestions . Our group will have 2 5th wheels and 2 motorhomes. Thanks

It is a very popular time of year for southern Utah, so I am not surprised you are having problems. Do you need hookups? If not, how do you feel about boondocking in dispersed camping areas? It might be the only way you can get all four units together. Note that it will still be very hot in southern Utah. Be prepared for 100 degree temps in early September and 90s in late September.

It's a ways up the road, on the 89, but we stay at South Forty in Marysvale. Entire park is pull-thru. Pretty location. Jim and Terri are the best. Great place to off-road from.

We stayed at Spanish Trail RV park in Moab in April. Decent park and has a lot of spaces...good luck in your hunt.

Here are a few we have stayed at;
Kodachrome Basin SP - Excellent, off the beaten path, some FHU sites w/ 50A. 20 min from Bryce, day trip to Grand Staircase and Cedar Breaks NM (photos)
Watchman Campground - Zion NP; walk to shuttles, some privacy.
Thousan Lakes - Torrey, UT, nice, a little tight, good for Coral Reef NP.
Ken's Lake BLM - Moab, about 5 mi south of town. No hookups

Zion - in the park itself at Watchman campground w/electric and dump station/water fill or in Springdale at the gate entrance including shuttle stops
Bryce - Ruby's at the entrance gate - all facilities, restaurant, laundry, fuel, shuttle stop
Moab/Canyonlands - can be done for one park - Moab has many RV parks


Use RVParkReviews.com to search.


It will still be hot in September so try to go toward the end or in October.

Good advice, Head on over to Colorado to get the last little Perfect Weather days in September and if you can time it for late September you might catch This https://lynn.smugmug.com/Travel/Colo...pens/i-tsVRkXg Aspen turning GOLD.

BOL,

Correction: I meant Capital Reef NP, not Coral Reef. BTW, it was fabulous too.

X2 on Kodachrome Basin. While camping at Ruby's (in their overflow lot), we day tripped to Capital Reef. Along the way, we stopped into Kodachrome Basin, SP to look around. It is a very nice park. We would definitely stay there some time.

When we go to Zion we like to camp at Zion River Resort. It is a little pricey but the campground is very nice and well maintained.

as I type this I am at pack creek campground. They have full hook ups (30 amp max) at very reasonable rates.
speaking of Rates
Have you heard the Fees to enter OUR national parks went up??
Last year Arches and Canyonlands were $10 for the week. EACH ARE $25 per vehicle NOW
yearly passes are still at $80.

These are also the places we stay as well. Except for Ruby's, we'd stay at all of them again. We weren't thrilled with Ruby's accommodations (the new section is a big parking lot) but it is right at the entrance to the park.
