Grand Circle Tour Campsite Reviews

We are looking at taking 3-4 weeks in May to mosey around the parks in the Grand Circle Tour. Anyone have any must-stay-at or must-not-stay at reviews for anywhere along the route?

Thinking of Zion, Bryce Canyon, Arches, Canyon Lands, Monument Valley, Page and the Grand Canyon areas as our hubs. Reading lots online but always interested first hand feedback on campgrounds.

This of course all relies on the dealer making our main/right slide hydraulics happy sometime in the near future.....

May is the perfect time to go to that area. We visited Zion in August 2009, it was hot. Last May we visited Arches, Capital Reef & Bryce, warm during the day, alittle rain in Arches. One really cold night in Bryce(we were in a hybrid). We sayed in the National Park Campgrounds all of which were nice, all dry camping. There are comerical campgrounds near these parks. You can find a ton of info about the national parks & surrounding area on www.nps.gov if you haven't found this yet. There is also Ruby's Inn just outside of Bryce Canyon. Ruby's Inn - Closest Lodging to Bryce Canyon National Park.

It will be great trip & good time of year to go.

If you can get a spot in Devils Garden Campground at Arches (it's the only campground inside the park) I would HIGHLY recommend it, especially if you have kids. Plenty of rocks to climb and places to explore. There are a few arches that are short hikes from the campground, we like to go there after dark on flashlight hikes. It is amazing to lay on the slick rock under an arch and look at all the stars, The arches look amazing at night all lit up by your flashlights as well.

I have also stayed at Watchman campground inside of Zions. Nice campground, close to the shuttle buses that you take to get into the rest of the park. If you are not afraid of heights, Angels Landing is a must do hike. Temple of sinawava and Emerald Pools are great too.

Stayed last year at the North Campground in Bryce Canyon as well. Larger campground and depending on your site you may be close to the shuttle bus stops as well. Higher elevation with lots of ponderosa pines. If you go back out past Ruby's Inn and on Highway 12 towards Escalante for a couple of miles there is a trail called "Mossy Cave", Nice short hike and Really cool (but then all of Bryce is!). Enjoy your trip and let me know if need any other advice. I have tons of pictures of these places as well.

Monument valley is on the Navajo reservation and you must pay for a guide to take you in. Cool sites but the towns and campgounds on the reservation are sketchy areas with wild dogs everywhere (75,000 strays on the Navajo reservation).
Zion is specacular, Bryce, canyon lands, are all terrific and the Grand canyon. Stayed mostly in Nationa park campgrounds but had to make reservation long in advance for Grand Canyon

Testing whether one can use Quick Reply to post to a thread that is older than 104 days.


And the answer is; YES.

Does anyone have a campsite recommendation in Bryce North Campground? Recreation.gov only has pics on a few of the RV sites in loops A & B, so I could use some advice from others ;-) We have a 29' 5er.

Thanks

Steve
