Rt. 93 from Wickenburg, AZ to Twin Falls, ID

I'd like to drive this route with our 30' 5th wheel in September but was wondering about road conditions, overnight stops, fuel, etc. Plus going through Las Vegas and Hoover Dam, these days [post 9/11].
Thanks campers!

Smile Part of your answer

No one has responed to your post ... and I have no first hand knowledge about what you are asking. This thread answers your question about crossing Hoover Dam


My aunt and uncle used to live in Twin Falls, ID. After they retired they wintered in Arizona or California. They travelled US 93 twice a year between Twin Falls and Las Vegas. They towed a large travel trailer with a F-150 pickup. My uncle joked about making sure that the gas tank was full on each leg of the trip.

US-93 is a good two-lane road and crossing over Hoover Dam is not a problem...you'll have to stop and be inspected, but that's maybe a 5-minute process.

If you'd rather not fight the traffic through Las Vegas, you could take the road that winds through Lake Mead NRA up to Overton and catch US-93 again on I-15. The cutoff for this road is after you cross the dam and before you get into Boulder City (there will be signs for Lake Mead NRA). It's probably a bit longer and slower than going through Las Vegas, but IMO, a much more relaxing drive. And if you're looking for a place to stay around the Las Vegas area, we've found Las Vegas Bay Campground in Lake Mead NRA to be very nice. There are also several boondocking spots around and near Overton, or you could try Valley of Fire State Park.

When you reach the junctions of US-93, SR-375 and SR-318, you have a choice: continue north on SR-318 or stay on US-93. SR-318 is a bit shorter to Ely and is flatter, but US-93 has more scenery and more interesting places to visit, including Cathedral Gorge State Park and Pioche (which as a city park with 10 sites with water and sewer...fee is by donation). And, if you travel US-93 rather than SR-318 and have the time, a stop at Great Basin National Park is certainly worth the time.

Fuel is not a problem along this route...as with any trip, travel on the top half of your tank.
