What to see in Utah

My wife wants me to take her in our RV next year to Utah to parks, monuments and sightseeing. When should we go and what should we see . We have only 10 days. And what RV campgrounds does anyone recommend ?

Southern Utah has a nice concentration of national parks. Try to fit in a few of these: Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef, Arches, Canyonlands and nearby is Monument Valley. For the best experience we find that staying IN the parks themselves is awesome. They all have campgrounds but only Zion has electric. With your time constraint you'd probably only stay in a park a couple nights so doing without electric would be very doable if you conserve. Monument Valley supposedly is renovating their campground and the only RV park which is close is Gouldings.


The best time to visit these parks would be April/May or Sept/Oct. Otherwise it's going to be very hot. Bryce would have the coolest temperature in the summer.


Have a good trip. They are all favorites of ours.

Only 10 days? I could spend 10 days just in Moab.

See Zion, Bryce and Arches for sure. Cedar Breaks National Monument is close to Zion and Bryce while you're at that end of the state, and Canyonlands is close to Moab so you can stop there if you have time while at Arches.

Moki Dugway mentioned (1st photo) is amazing and will catch you totally off guard. Cedar Breaks (2nd and 3rd) is every bit as impressive as Bryce. Their State Parks are a gem of their own. As mentioned, you could spend 10 days in one area. We will head back in 2015 and visit Moab, Canyonlands,, Arches, Capital Reef, Dead Horse Point, next year.

You really can't go wrong with any corner of Utah. It's a beautiful state. The popular sights have already been listed, Zion, Bryce, Cedar Breaks, Canyonlands, Arches, Monument Valley...


If I only had 10 days (and I assume that includes travel time) I'd probably pick the area/park closest to me and find a place to park it. Where ever you end up, it will just wet your appetite for a return visit.

Salt Lake City is worth a look. Temple Square, Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Genealogy/Family History Center, Great Salt Lake and Kennekott Copper Mine (so big it can be seen from space) are just a few places to visit.

I liked Bryce the best, but you need to hike it.

Best places we stayed were Dead Horse Point state park outside Moab and Kodachrome State Park near Bryce.

Arches National Park

X2 for Arches NP. If you like hiking, don't miss the ranger-led Fiery Furnace hike. Also the Devils Garden loop.

Our first trip we hit Zion, Bryce, Arches, Canyonlands and the Grand Canyon in 2 weeks. Several UT trips later, we spend more time in one area. I think for 10 days, I would focus on the Moab area. If you want an RV park in town, we like the Canyonlands right on Main Street. It's close to the brewery and walking distance to shops and restaurants. Not big sites or grassy, but clean and convenient. For rustic sites, we go to the BLM sites along the CO River.

Loads to see within and hour drive. Arches, Islands in the Sky, Dead Horse Point, Needles District, LaSal Mountain Loop. A little further away is Goblin Valley and the SanRafael.

Just started aour blog, and have a few UT areas posted. It's a work in progress...www.findingthetrail.com You can't go wrong in UT!
