Karenann - we are pretty new to the RV world too and have found that the RVLife app is extremely helpful for finding full hook up campgrounds of all types on our journeys. If I remember correctly, there is a no cost trial subscription available. The same subscription can be used on rvtripwizard.com for extensive trip planning. Which you can then open in RVLife for RV friendly GPS routing while traveling.

You can use less functional apps such as RV Parky or The Dyrt as well if all you need is Campground info.

Good luck!

Glad to have you here with us.

If you are not in a hurry. I would take I-70 to Denver then I-76 to I-80. Without knowing what your ideal driving distance is for a day it's hard to make suggestions. I'm sure if you can give us that number you'll get lots of input for stops.

First it make a lot of difference where in Ohio you are? Your retired. You really want to do it in 3 days?

I'm not sure I understand. Are you in Ohio now? Heading for Winter Park? or the other way around. If you are in northern Ohio you can go across 90, stop in Elkhart and see the RV Museum. Stay on 80 to go around the south side of Chicago, or if your adventurous take 90 right straight up through the middle. If you can do it in the middle of the day it's not bad. Or stay on 80 and visit the Quad Cities and stop in Walcott and visit the worlds largest truck stop. Head north on 380 towards Cedar Rapids and get on 30 heading west. At Des Moines head north on 35 to US 20 and head west. All kinds of stuff and little towns. Fort Robinson state Park just outside of Crawford has a pretty nice campground. Not sure if you can reserve or get there early. Stay on 20 to Lusk, There is a nice campground there. Take 18 out of Lusk to I25 to Casper Wyoming 220 is a good road. You have 2 pretty good climbs coming out of Casper, but nothing bad, 4-5% for a few miles. Comes out at Rawlins and pick up 80 there. Beautiful drive. You do have to climb the Twin Sisters, but they are long slow and straight. From there your only real choice is to drop down on I76 through Denver. The biggest climb you will have is the one on I70 going up the mountain on 70.

But if you are in Columbus or south and want to make it in three days, I 70 is the only way. Boring flat and nothing to see.
