Gouldings in Monument Valley. Kodachrome State Park in the Bryce Canyon area.

One thing that might get overlooked in Salt Lake City is their imazing State Capitol. We were blown away by it's beauty. DW retired after 30 years with the Texas Legislature so we have to visit any state capital buildings we pass by.

I don't know what type of rig you've got, but we prefer staying in the National Parks themselves. We don't require hookups for anything less than 5 days, and you are so much closer to the action if you stay in the park itself. For the state parks, I have generally have just traveled to them from somewhere else, so I don't have good recommendations. There are also some lovely Forest Service campgrounds in the area. If you let people know your preferences, maybe someone else can recommend something.

I do agree with the other posters that you could easily spend 5-10 days in each National Park. There are also the lovely mountain areas east of Salt Lake City, or the wonderful Uintas in the northeast part of the state. Then again there is the Green River area with white water or flat water. I could go on and on. You won't be bored!

Hey Mcgeorge. Hope you don't mind if I also get some input because we are also planing the same thing.

We are hitting southern utah for 18 days (leaving from Wa State) in may.

Me and the GF ride dirt bikes so will camp at a few sand dune spots. But we would also like to stay at a few national parks.

Iv read that most areas are Dry camping but will we need reservations for the parks? Or can we just show up?


Thanks!

I've heard a number of folks comment (not in this forum) that pictures of these areas are doctored because they didn't see such dramatic colors when they were there. Most of these folks are out sightseeing at noon. The lighting on most of the beautiful areas mentioned is often best in the early morning/sunrise. If possible, plan to be out early!

Dead Horse Point State Park

This place is about 20 minutes NW of Moab and very close to Canyonlands. But it's easy to get to town and Arches NP, too. It's also about 1,000 feet above Moab, so even in the summer, it's cooler and you get a nice breeze.

We did a lot of research and picked #19. A long back in, but in my opinion, the best site there.
There is no water hookup, so arrive full. There is 30A and dump as well as a clean restroom with a potable water station, but you can not fill your rig there. They truck water in from town each day. It's well worth it, though!

On the way home from Burning Man, we stop for at least two, more often three, days in Moab and stay at Spanish Trail. It's on the southern end of town but very much easy in/out. I gotta say: The artistry of these rocks and valleys in Arches are good for re-centering oneself after the choas that can be Burning Man.

One year, Sally & I are going there to JUST visit Utah. But after eight days of boondocking in the Nevada high desert with 60,000 of our closest friends we only want to 1) get a good shower b) not talk to anyone & i) get our asses HOME!
