Utah canyon loop - need experienced travellers advice on May trailer trip

Jump to last reply

My wife and I would like to take a trip with our T@B teardrop trailer covering a loop that includes the following parks (nights in or nearby): Cedar Breaks (1), Zion (3), Bryce Canyon (3), Grand Staircase-Escalante (2), Capitol Reef (2), Natural Bridges, Arches (3), Canyonlands (2).

You can view a Google map of this loop with mileages and links to info and images of the parks and park campgrounds at:

Our plan was going so well until we started to look for campground reservations. NPS campgrounds with reservations are pretty well booked solid for May. Various guides say the "FCFS" sites fill by very early morning, with people circling campgrounds as early as 8:00 a.m. to pounce on a vacated site.

The private campgrounds I've checked on the Web seem either distant, unattractive and/or full. And, we really don't want to move camp more than every 2 or 3 nights or to spend every second or third morning on an 8:00 a.m. "hunt".

What we would like advice on is whether there's a reasonable way to pull off this loop, or ... would we be better punting this spring and going in the Fall, when NPS campgrounds seem to have lots of availability.

If we go in the Fall, what's the period where weather, foliage and other considerations would be most ideal? Our litlle T@B has a forced air heater, propane stove and a high-altitude fridge, and we're totally prepared for "dry camping".

Thanks so much for any advice!
