Ohio to western locations - Advice

Next summer, mid June, we are planning a 2-3 week trip out west. We will travel from Dayton, OH to Minnesota for a wedding, then head west from there. We will probably go through Yellowstone, maybe head to coast. Looking for what sights to see along the way, best routes, places to stay. We are looking to make our itinerary and major stops in the next month or so. I know there are pinterest and blog pages out there of people who have done this, if you know of a good one, please pass it on.

If coming out to coast, Oregon has the best scenic hwy...101, and lots of rv parks. Fuel prices not bad compared to Calif. In Oregon, they pump your fuel. Wyoming and South Dakota lots of head winds on I-90, but, there's lots of things to see, one of which is no CORN.

I would definitely bypass the toll roads in the Chicago area. It can get quite pricey pulling a trailer.

Only one toll on 80 thru Chicago.
And it wasn't bad.

That is if your going thru the topside of Indiana.

If you want to camp on the coast, in June, you'll need to make reservations 6 months in advance.

If you'd tell the masses what your interests are, might get some more answers.

If your staying the Twin Cities I like Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground , Apple Valley, MN. There's FHU, WIFI, clean & grassy but no pool. It's 10 minutes south of the Mall of America and next to the zoo. This where I stay when I visit my daughter.

We recommend Mt. Rushmore area, in S. Dakota and Devils Tower in Eastern Wyoming. If you go through N. California, check out Ft. Bragg area on north coast. We used to tent camp in McKerricher State Park. Lots of great Colorado State Parks with FHU options.
