The Utah National Park System Offers Zion Park As Its Most Visited
National Park

The Utah National Park System includes Zion, Bryce Canyon, Arches, Canyonlands, and Capitol Reef. Because these parks are relatively close together, all five of these great national parks can be seen using the Grand Circle Road Tour.

El Monte RV Rentals & Motorhome Rentals

This route will take you over 1100 miles of highway. It is possible to drive the Grand Circle route in one week; however, you would be missing a lot. This part of the country should be enjoyed at a leisurely pace.

Utah/Arizona Grand Circle Route

The Grand Circle begins and ends in Utah. In addition to the parks mentioned above, this route offers you the opportunity to also visit the North Rim Grand Canyon, Mesa Verde, Monument Valley, Lake Powell, and the assorted state parks like Quail Creek and Snow Canyon State Park.

A Good Place To Catch Your Breath
Before Driving 1,100 Scenic Miles

Our trip to Zion brought us in from the Las Vegas Area. We actually stayed at the CasaBlanca Resort in Mesquite, NV. If you are driving up from the Los Angeles Area, the CasaBlanca would make a good stopover point.

It is just under 500 miles from L.A. to Mesquite. I don't know about you, but that is a long way for me to drive a motorhome in one day!

At any rate, there are advantages to using this resort as a rest day... maybe two. They have an RV Park for a reasonable price... and you get to use the pool shown above.

This resort also has a couple of very good restaurants available along with a full buffet on the weekends.

Leaving The Flat Desert Of Arizona Is A Welcome Change In The Scenery... Beginning With The Virgin River Gorge

Also, you don't want to drive into Southern Utah and begin your Utah National Park tour after dark. After Miles of flat Arizona desert, the scenery change is amazing going through the Virgin River Gorge.

If your RV travels to the Southern Utah National Parks tour begins with Zion, you have a choice of two Zion National Park campgrounds that are great destinations for your Class C Motorhome. You have the Watchman and South Campgrounds just inside the southern park entrance on Highway 9.
