If you are CHL or plan to carry along a firearm, ensure you check the laws in different states, plus Canada. With time, meander as much as you can and enjoy. We use the Trip Planner with Good Sams with the button for attractions etc to point to places. Some of the campsites will have local attractions that may not otherwise be known. While in Holbrook AZ we went to the Painted Desert/Petrified Forest but also found another place to visit. Holbrook owns some land that has petroglyphs you can get close up to.

If you are 62 or older be sure to get a "Senior Pass" from the US Forest Service or Parks Dept. $10 for a lifetime card that gives you 50% off at five federal agencies -- National Parks, National Forests, etc.. Get info at their website: America the Beautiful - National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass
With the card you can get half price camping at Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service campgrounds -- $12 to $15 a night is a steal. I have a book that lists all the BLM, Forest Service, Fish & Wildlife, etc. campgrounds in the country. You should be able to find one at your local bookstore. If you can plan your trip around these campgrounds you can save a ton of money.

I have never had trouble getting spots except an occasional Friday or Saturday night. Weekends are busy but Sunday night thru Thursday nights you can usually find a spot.

Oregon has great state parks. They raised their rates this year to (avg) $30 per night. (little less without sewer hookup -- little more with) You can download a state parks brochure here:

Have fun. We made a similar trip in reverse a few years ago -- Portland, Oregon thru Utah, down to Carlsbad, over to Dallas and Houston, up to Memphis, then Chicago and Indianapolis and finally home. You'll love it.
