Rapid City, SD heading west to N.California

I am planning our summer road trip for June 2017. Round trip from Northern California area I have a good plan for the first half of our trip out visiting Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, Glacier, Mt. Rushmore and other attractions around Rapid City. On our way back home I am stumped for places to visit. Looking for ideas through southern WY, northern UT and central NV. Anything fun you can think of for a family of 5, 3 kids ages 14, 12, and 9.

We are in a 32ft class C with no toad, so places RV friendly are a must.

Thanks in advance for the ideas.

There are beautiful and scenic areas in the mountains to the east of Salt Lake City, including Park Rapids with the ski area (may be some gondola rides to be had) and the Olympic Village. Stop in SLC to see the Mormon church if interested, also the Mormon Tabernacle Choir if performing. Stop at the Great Salt Lake at least to see it (and taste it!) (just pull into the old marina that is now closed and park there for a while). South of SLC is the Heber Valley Historic Railroad out of Heber City - kids would love this trip! Can't help with central Nevada. That's pretty much a get-through area. At Reno, stop for the casinos if interested, if not at least take the family in for one of the famous (infamous?) buffets! Truckee is also a cool area including the area near and down to Lake Tahoe. There are some great "rim" hiking trails with good views of the lake - you could do a family-sized short hike in with a picnic and just enjoy the beautiful views. see link for north side day hikes

Look for this along the salt flats - it comes and goes fast and there is no pull-off, so be prepared!
