    It’s that lovely time of year again when the sun is shining and all you want to do is pack up and start your summer adventures. Rather than having to deal with the long lines and overcrowded airplane cabins, you can skip the hassle and take a trip in an RV! The United States is full of natural wonders that are relatively unknown compared to Niagara Falls and the Grand Canyon but are just as magnificent. Here are five beautiful places in the US that you can easily experience in an RV.

    Grand Prismatic Spring

    grand prismatic springsThe Grand Prismatic Spring is located in Yellowstone National Park and is the largest natural hot spring in the United States. Known for its unique coloring, the Grand Prismatic Spring was first noted in 1839 by fur trapper Osborne Russell. The spring’s surreal coloring is due to bacteria growing in its mineral enriched water while its dark blue middle is a result of its extremely high temperature and depth. It can be found in the Midway Geyser Basin.  

    There are a multitude of RV friendly campgrounds in and outside of Yellowstone. Of the 12 camping grounds located in the park, seven are operated on a first come first serve basis. Reservations for the other can be made online or by phone at 1-866-439-7375.

    Zion National Park

The Narrows, a unique section of Zion canyon, is a popular hiking destination.  The two hour hike consists of a mile hike on the paved Riverside Walk and then wading upstream through the Virgin River to fully experience the beauty of the canyon.

    Zion National Park has three main campgrounds, all of which are RV friendly. Reservations can be made for specific campgrounds but in general it is on a first come first serve basis. Reservations can be made online or by phone at 1-877-444-6777.

    Bryce Canyon

According to local mythology, hoodoos are people that the trickster Coyote turned to stone. The park has many popular hiking trails, horseback riding during the warmer months as well as an astronomy festival in June.

    Bryce Canyon National Park has three campgrounds with designated areas for RV parking. Most areas are operated on a first come first serve but reservations can be made online or by phone at 1-877-444-6777.

    Devils Tower

    Devils TowerLocated in Wyoming, Devils Tower was declared the first United States National Monument in 1906 by President Theodore Roosevelt. There are many legends regarding the formation of Devils Tower. One of which says that seven little girls were playing when bears started to chase them. They ran and jumped onto low rock. Praying to the rock to save them, the rock started to grow taller and taller, keeping them out of the reach of the bears. The bears tried jumping after them and broke their claws against the rock, as the rock climbed higher into the sky. The girls remain the sky and are a constellation of seven little stars.  

    Devils Tower National Monument has one campground which is RV assessable as well as many options outside of the Park.  Camping spots are on a first come first serve basis. The park doesn’t take reservations.

    Maroon Bells Snowmass Wilderness is a part of White River National Forest. The Forest is home to a large number of campgrounds but only three make up the  Maroon Bells Scenic Area. Reservations can be made online or by phone at 1-877-444-6777.
