5 Reasons To Visit Utah’s National Parks In An RV

Jan 16, 2021

The very best way to see the Mighty Five of Utah is by camping in an RV. The five national parks in Utah are Bryce Canyon, Zion, Canyonlands, Arches, and Capitol Reef. The spectacular beauty of these geological wonders should not be missed. Visiting only one will provide a lifetime of memories. Here are some reasons you want to RV camp in these national parks.

1. Live And Breathe These Wonders Of Nature

Waking up in breathtaking scenery with wildlife at your door is an unforgettable experience. All five Utah parks have spectacular features that make them stand out in the pantheon of National Parks. For example, Bryce Canyon is home of the hoo-doos -- those rocky buttes that look like a potter has dripped clay in a stacked formation. They sit in a canyon and produce incredible light effects during sunrise and sunset. The rim of the canyon and some of the sides are filled with trees where wildlife congregates.

Arches is aptly named for the over 1,500 cataloged, weathered rock formations that form natural arches due to erosion. The most famous and photographed one is Delicate Arch. It stretches 60 feet in width and is utterly mesmerizing.

Zion boasts the slot canyon, The Narrows at the Temple of Sinawava, and the peaks known as the Court of the Patriarchs. The park is a treasure trove of sights. Imagine camping near enough that you can see these wonders from your front door and know that you are just a tram ride away from starting the day’s adventures.

Perhaps the least-known park is Capitol Reef. It sits in between Bryce Canyon and Canyonlands. It is vast and unique in its attributes. There are many slot canyons, deep canyons, mesas, and high points. One of the most interesting sights to see is the petroglyphs. You can drive to a parking area and take a boardwalk to see the petroglyphs up close. There are other more remote places where you can see petroglyphs by hiking to them, too.
