Popular attractions include pink jeep tours or the natural waterslides at Slide Creek State Park. Near the campsite, Oak Creek is the ideal spot for swimming, wading and fishing, as well as enjoying the simple joy of the stunning landscapes around you.

Next, it’s off to Mather Campground on the edge of the Grand Canyon National Park. Embrace the breath-taking views of the famed Grand Canyon.

Then it’s time to head East for just under three hours through more of the Grand Canyon National Park and the Kaibab National Forest towards Cameron.

Enjoy a sunrise or sunset at Bryce Amphitheatre for an unforgettable experience.

Enjoy action-packed hikes amongst dramatic cliffs with bright green trees dotted in the valleys by walking or by mule. Spend the next morning in Zion National Park before the next part of your journey to Mesquite. There, check out the historic St George district and see the ghost towns and prehistoric dinosaur footprints.
For your final couple of days with the motorhome, drive to Las Vegas directly on the Interstate 12 or enjoy the more scenic route past Lake Mead and stop off at the ultimate man-made spectacle: Hoover Dam.
