Canyonlands NP

Touring the Canyonlands NP by Motorhome only, no toad.

Any suggestions and ideas. We toured Arches in 04 by Motorhome only and had no problems.

Thanks,

Ron

We were there about a month ago. The roads are good and there are adequate parking spots. You should not have any difficulties.

The most spectacular viewpoint, in my estimation, is from Dead Horse State Park.

Slide Show of our visit

We stayed at the Passport America campground on the southern outskirts of Moab.

We had a good dinner at the brew pub in Moab right on US 191.

There is also a very scenic drive, south and east of town ... folks at the visitor center in downtown Moab can give you directions and a map.

I forgot to mention earlier ... and too late to edit ... but there are several businesses in Moab that rent Jeeps.

Thanks,

I think I would need a jeep to travel Harold's road

I dug out some of our 04 trip pictures and I believe we stayed at Dead Horse overnight before we headed to Arches.



Since my wife uses a wheelchair, towing or renting a vehicle is almost out of the question. We will do the best that we can from the MH, which is not the best but better than nothing

BTW Dead Horse campground was a nice little campground.

We just returned from the area. Canyonlands is nice, and RV friendly. We rented a jeep and took the trail Harold shows...its called Shafer trail. Its great. We stayed at a camground near the Colorado river and arches called Moab Valley. Its GREAT! Also, ate at the Brewery which is wonderful. Jay's pasta/pizza is the best place however!!!

Canyonlands is nice, but Arches has so much more to offer. ENJOY!

Agree that Arches has more to see than Canyonlands. After driving for quite a while to see the Islands in the Sky area of Canyonlands, DW was sick of red rocks and made me drive down to Durango for some civilization.

We rented ATVs in Moab and had a ball in the BLM land across the road from Arches. Also did the CO River rafting.

We stayed at SlickRock Campground both times we were there.

Thanks for all of the suggestions

We head out this evening after work, drive all night, and then stop every night after that. First major stop will be Monument Valley
