We are planning a trip next May 2018 from the San Francisco area to Arches, Capitol Reef, Bryce, Zion, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, and Yosemite. We can take 3+ weeks for this trip. We will be traveling in a 24 ft. motorhome. We are about to begin making our campground reservations for some of the very popular sites such as Devil's Garden in Arches, and Watchman in Zion. We specifically need help with the Utah and Arizona portion as we have not been there before. We are thinking: Arches 3 nights, Capitol Reef 1 night, Bryce 3 nights, Zion 3 nights, and the Grand Canyon 4 nights. Las Vegas will be a stop to see a show and refuel before heading home to CA and Yosemite.
Can any of you experts give us suggestions for the number of nights in each place, any other RV friendly campground or parks I should know about, or any other tips for this neck of the woods? We need to make the Arches reservations in the next few days. Also, Memorial Day weekend falls in the middle the trip...any park we should avoid during that busy time if possible? Thanks for your time and help.
