Thor’s Hammer in Bryce Canyon National Park

There’s no better way to break the “ho-hums” of everyday life than with a trip to a natural wonderland. Bryce Canyon National Park in Southern Utah will astonish RV travelers with its brilliantly colored vistas. We highly recommend this national park to all our RV rental customers, and we’ve gone the extra mile to gather the information you need.

To begin, let’s look at the campgrounds available in and around Bryce Canyon National Park. Inside the park, the National Park Service operates two “no hookups” campgrounds with drinking water and modern restrooms on-site. These are known as the “North Campground” near the Visitor Center and the Sunset Campground near the most popular trailheads. Check the links for reservation information and any seasonal closures.

Outside the park, you’ll find very comfortable camping at Ruby’s Inn Campground, just minutes from the park entrance (also a great place to catch the park shuttle.) Bryce Canyon Pines RV Campground is also very near the national park and features pine-tree lined campsites, a grocery store and other attractive amenities.

What You’ll See at Bryce Canyon
The brilliantly-colored rock spires known as “hoodoos” are the star attractions at Bryce Canyon National Park. You’ll want to spend plenty of time taking photos at spots like the Bryce Canyon Amphitheatre, Piracy Point and Thor’s Hammer. Keep an eye out for the park’s abundant prairie dogs, and a rich display of other wildlife.

But if you’re hoping to get even closer to the wonders of Bryce Canyon, take a hike on one of the park’s scenic trails. Favorites with visitors include the Rim Trail between Sunrise and Sunset Points, the Peek-a-Boo Loop through the center of the amphitheater and the eight-mile Fairyland Loop. Trail rides offered by concessionaires, ranger-led talks and a special Night Sky Astronomy Program will add special memories to your trip.

So, how to get to this marvelous vacation mecca? First, check with Salt Lake City or Las Vegas El Monte RV Rentals if you need to rent an RV for your trip. Once you’re on the road, Bryce Canyon National Park is about an hour east of I-15 (Cedar City, UT) on Utah Hwy 14 through the Dixie National Forest (a gorgeous place, itself!) It’s located about four hours’ drive from both Las Vegas and Salt Lake City.

Wake up your sleeping senses soon with an RV camping trip to Bryce Canyon National Park in Southern Utah. Beautiful scenery, fascinating wildlife and great campgrounds make it a favorite place for RV travelers to break out of the doldrums.
