HI, As you can see i'm new to this site, i am hiring a 40' RV from B & B rv in Denver for 2 weeks at the end of July. We are planning to do a round trip leaving Denver and heading south to Santa Fe, then along to the grand canyon, then vegas, then Zion national park then making our way back to Denver.
Can people please recommend places to visit and parks to stay at, i am assuming i will need to pre-book the park!
open to all suggestions as this is the first RV trip we have done, and would appreciate any tips that will help us on our trip. thanks in advance. Adam.

Here are the places we've stayed in the past - we liked them all:

COLORADO SPRINGS - Fountain Creek RV - tight spots but very convenient to everything. Walk to Old Colorado Springs, short drive to Manatee Springs, Pike Peak's railway, Garden of the Gods (wowza!!!).

ZION NATIONAL PARK - Zion Canyon Campground and RV Park in Springdale. Unbelievable scenery, on the Virgin River, and best of all you can WALK to the national park headquarters or take a free shuttle (very important as the parking lots fill up FAST in the summer). From there you take shuttles to all points of the park. You can walk or take shuttle to downtown Springdale, too, for what it's worth. Has a small pool or you can swim/tube/kayak in the river (very cold).

GRAND CANYON - Trailer Village, which is run by a concessionaire in the national park (do not confuse this with the Camper Village down in Tusayan). Catch the shuttle bus system at the front of the campground or you can walk (1/2 mile) to the canyon. Shuttle busses run all over the park. Walk or shuttle to national park grocery store and restaurant (expensive but at least it's there). Elk and deer wander through the campground. At night it's pitch dark and you can see more stars than you've ever seen. Bathrooms, but no showers or laundry (you have to go over to the Mathers campground and everything is coin-op), no wi-fi, but you can't get better location. You'll need to make reservations NOW as spots fill up fast in the summer.

LAS VEGAS - Circus Circus KOA. Expensive and nothing but a parking lot, but very large level easily-maneuvered sites and you can walk through Circus Circus and you're on the strip. There are nicer parks in Las Vegas but this is the only one that close to the strip. Has a nice pool and a sauna.
