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.

And again,

While I certainly agree with the opinion voiced by nedmtnman in his post, we have to realize that visitors from overseas want to see as much as they can in their limited available time. We have time and availabliity they don't. Plus, they may never be here again. As Adam has mentioned, this is their first RV trip to the U.S. I can't blame him for wanting to see as much as possible in the two weeks he has. Since his starting and ending point is Denver and he wants to see the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas, we have to work with that.

My previous post had us approaching Flagstaff on the way to the Grand Canyon. I was a bit surprised that nedmtnman's post didn't mention all the attractions around Flagstaff. Within less than 40 miles of Flagstaff, you have Walnut Canyon National Monument, Oak Creek Canyon, Sedona, Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument, and Wupatki National Monument. Two of these (Sunset Crater and Wupatki) can be seen via short side trips on the way to GCNP if you go via U.S. 89 and AZ 64. Besides getting a chance to see the two aforementioned national monuments, you will also travel through more of the painted desert and be able to see the east side of GCNP on the way to the main area of the park. There is a decent RV park on U.S. 89 as it leaves the northeast edge of Flagstaff. It is called J & H RV Park. It calls itself "adult oriented", but I don't think it means children are not allowed. You (Adam) have never mentioned the composition of your party (just you and the wife?, friends?, kids?). There is also a KOA just north of J & H, but I seem to remember review comments stating that the KOA's sites are not good for large RVs.

If you have made it this far (GCNP) and not taken too many side trips, you could be here in less than 7 days. I think it would be best if you got to this point on your 5th night. That would give you your 2 days at GCNP, 2 days in Las Vegas, a day at Zion, and 4-5 days to get back to Denver from southwestern Utah.
