We have to leave in the summer because we have a 13 year old. Looking for best time between June and August to visit and best routes and campsite recommendations please. We usually just do trips no longer than about 2 hours to the desert and the beach so we're pretty excited to finally take a long trip this time. Thanks in advance for all your recommendations! So glad we found this group!
I would recommend doing either since there is a lot to see and do in both parks and other nearby to see as well. Zion and Utah are hot in the summer so you might rule them out in July and August but there you can also visit Bryce, Capitol Reef, Canyon Lands, Arches and more without 2 days drive to Yellowstone. However, the temps around Yellowstone are more comfortable in the summer and you are in a very large park that is right next to Grand Teton NP and near lots of other places.
