Trip out West

This is my first post but I have been viewing this site for about a year. Our family purchased a Georgetown 351 this past May and have loved our adventures with the new RV. The people on this site are a wealth of knowledge and I have very much appreciate everyone's comments. We are starting to plan for a trip (summer of 2016) out west (Yellowstone, Colorado, Bad Lands, etc). Is there a site, thread or app that would help us plan for this two week trip from Ohio?

When we had our Georgetown we took this same trip from Cincinnati. It's a great trip you will love it.

After you start your planning, you can ask more specific questions here on things to see or campground info. Many of us have visited those areas.

Of course, we don't consider it "out west" unless you cross the Rockies.

Try and also there is a app for your phone if you have one. Did that trip this past summer and the app came in handy more than a few times. It has all your pilot/flying J, walmarts, all campgrounds and more. Have a safe trip.

Welcome Teamg5 to the forum.
We have a great On The Road Forum here that is divied into the parts of the country.
I have used it a lot.
Here is the Forum leak to it.
On the Road | Travel Chat - Forest River Forums

You need to tell us where you are located and what route you plan on using.

I have visited Yellowstone a few years ago and really like the west entrance in West Yellowstone.
We stayed at the Grizzly RV Resort there.

Go to TOMBSTONE and spend 3 nights at STAMPEDE RV PARK. Book on OFFICE Side of side road. It is OLD, DUSTY, eclectic and right in town 5 minute WALK to OK Corral.
Breakfast, for a fee, in office. Worth doing! It's a place you will never forget!
Visit FOUNTAIN HILLS, AZ. Stay at Eagle View RV Resort. WOW! What a contrast in these 2 parks. 5 mins back road to Fountain Hills. Stayed there a MONTH. Wild horses; $1 million motor homes, travel trailers, etc. Park is owned by Yavapi Indians.
Plan on WINSLOW, AZ....stand'n on a corner in Winslow, AZ 👍.
Hit some Route 66 towns. Of course hit the Black Hills, Bad Lands, Yellowstone, and on and on!
Going back again either 2016 or 17!

Welcome from SE Virginia! If you are a Good Sam member their trip planner on their web site is useful. As you refine your voyage you will get a lot more input from the members here. They are a great resource!

Happy travels!

Thanks to all for your responses. These are the helpful comments we were hoping to receive. Yes we definitely need to fine tune our plans. We will continue to work on our trip and use the comments/links to help with planning. Thanks again.
