I am looking to take my family of 4 (with 10 & 12 year olds) on a trip to Southeastern Utah in early April 2014. We plan to fly in/out of SLC where we will rent an RV for our 1 week trip. We plan to pick-up the RV up on Saturday April 5th and return it Saturday April 12th. I have put together a rough draft of an itinerary and would like some feedback
4/5 – P/U RV and travel to Arches NP. Overnight at Devil’s Garden CG if possible.
How easy is it to get reservation for Devil’s Garden?
4/6 – Spend entire day touring Arches NP including taking the Fiery Furnace hike. Overnight at Devil’s Garden CG if possible.
4/7 – Tour Dead Horse SP and Canyonlands NP. Overnight in yet TBD RV park in Moab or farther south down US191(suggestions welcome)
Would we be able to tour Dead Horse SP and both the IITS and Needles section of Canyonlands in 1 day with some short hikes?
4/8 – Drive to Monument Valley and take sunset backcountry tour. Overnight at Gouldings.
Would we have enough time to drive over to 4 corners, take some pictures and be at MV in time for a sunset tour?
4/9 – Hit Valley of the Gods and Natural Bridges on our trip to Capital Reef. Overnight at Fruita CG if possible.
Is it advisable to take a rental RV on Moki Dugway?
Will we have time this day to also tour Goblin Valley?
How difficult will it be to get a site at Fruita CG this night since they do not take reservation and we will be arriving late?
4/10 – Tour Capitol Reef area. Overnight at Fruita CG if possible.
4/11 – Tour HWY 12 South. Overnight at Kodachrome SP CG if possible.
Will we have time to tour a bit of Bryce NP this day?
4/12 – Head back to SLC and return the RV by 11AM.
Thank you in advance for your feedback and recommendations.
