Thanks again everyone for the suggestions. With your ideas, some good old fashioned map work, and the remarkable campsite apps on our phone, the trip planning is coming along nicely. Now that I have my senior discount card some of the sites are an even better deal. Is this a great country or what!

You ought to stop at Mesa Verde NP in SE Colorado on your way. It is a World Heritage Site and has a great campground. Has an AS caravan roundup there every August. Its in the four corners area not far from your destinations. https://www.nps.gov/meve/index.htm

It's been a while since we were there, but Capitol Reef N.P. was a wonderful discovery. We only planned to stop there for a lunch break, but ended staying for five days. We were at the Fruita C.G., surrounded by orchards and with the first grass we had seen for a while. We were nearly out of food, so we made do with lots of apricots and cherries. Had pancakes with Apricot syrup, cherry cobbler pie and even dried some apricots while there.

Another neat place is Cedar Breaks National Monument. At Zion N.P., only about an hour away, we had temps of 104 one day and the next morning at Cedar Breaks, found ice in our water-bucket on the picnic table! It also has bristle-cone pines and the same geologic formations as Bryce Canyon N.P.

Dead Horse Point State Park, near Arches and Canyonlands, is magnificent!

Favorite S. Utah BLM, Forest Service, State Parks...?

So many great recommendations already in this thread, but I did find this article with a pretty good list (and links for more detailed info.) of possible destinations in the Southern UT, Northern AZ, and Western, NV "Grand Circle." Might be a useful for trip planning purposes.

https://parks100.com/explore-five-more/

Personally, I'm getting the AS out and visiting Zion NP in the near future.

A little to the west of the area you are considering is Kodachrome Basin State Park. 'Kodachrome' says everything you need to know. Right in the middle of Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon an d Zion National Parks. Also several other Utah State Parks. We used Kodachrome as a base of operations for 2 weeks last year and were not disappointed.

In any event, welcome to Utah!!! Have a great time wherever you go. You have many great suggestions in this thread.
