Planning a trip to the Grand Canyon

Hey all.. i am planning a trip to the Grand canyon next May and June, I will be starting off in Calgary Alberta Canada going south into Montana towards Great Falls, What i like to know which routes i can take where to camp along the way, I would also like to see Zion National Park and yellowstone, I know there is a camp site on the south side of the grand canyon but i don;t know any on the north side, I was figuring on travelling 5 to 6 hours a day, i know i could take I-15 all the way down but do you see anything along that route, I know this is abit early to plan but i am gettting excited to go, I never have been down that way before so i have no idea what to expect. Any and all imput would be great
Thanks Kevin

TF-Kevin,
There is a campground at the south side of the Grand Canyon. You can get info on it at www.nps.gov . If you are inquiring what to see on the way there, you might want to check out the Hoover Dam on the way.

Kevin, a good amount of the membership here is located on the eastern half of the US and I would bet many haven't been along the route you are asking about. I am sure it's not because no one wants to help.

I haven't been to the Grand Canyon in many many years. I can tell you if you are near Moab Utah it is a beautiful place to visit. Arches and Canyonlands National Parks are must sees there as well as Dead Horse Point State Park. Bryce and Zion are also absolutely beautiful.

As to campground recomendations I can only suggest you plan for where you want to stay and then look up the nearby city on www.rvparkreviews.com and find CGs with good reviews that meet your needs.

Have a great trip.

I love the north rim, the Utah side, of the canyon. It's not crowded and the camping at DeMotte Park is great. You are miles and miles from any store, so plan ahead. While you are in the area, make the Grand Circle from Lake Powell to Zion and Bryce. Then turn east through Escalante across to Canyonland and Arches. End up in Mesa Verde near Moab. It's a perfect National Park vacation surrounded by fantastic SW scenery. I know I have missed some, but it has been about 15 years since I have made that trip.

We stayed at Canyon Gateway RV park in Williams AZ. Also part of the legend RT-66. Plenty of action, and food in town. Good campsite. You can ride the train to the Grand Canyon if you want from here. We drove our car.
