  1. We are planning a trip beginning June 28th through July 12th. We are wanting to make a round trip and possibly see Lake Powell, Antelope Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Moab, and more if we can. We plan to travel in a jeep pulling a small camper. We have read that there are several places you can camp for free. Do you have any information that would help us? And possibly a route where we can get the most out of 2 weeks as we are traveling from Alabama and may never get this chance again. The dates I gave are when we will be there. These do not include our travel time to and from. We have 2 days factored in for travel there and back. Would you suggest starting in Moab and going from there or start near Page? We want to be able to unhook our camper and do some off roading in the jeep also if you know any good OHV trails. Not interested in a bunch of rock climbing, just mainly sightseeing.

    1. Hi Katherine,
      Congrats on being able to spend 2 weeks in the Grand Circle! We’re confident you’ll love it here.
      First thing’s first: I notice that the Grand Canyon is conspicuously absent from your itinerary. If you’ve never been there before, I strongly recommend you work it into your itinerary. Ditto for Zion National Park.
      Regarding free, aka dispersed camping, in National Forest areas (note: NOT National Parks), it is possible to do that outside of designated camping areas. They typical rules are that you must be at least 1/4 mile from an established road, and be aware that you won’t have ANY services, such as electrical, water, trash pick-up, etc. In some dispersed camping areas, such as outside Grand Canyon South Rim, people have built fire rings, but that’s about it.
      Before you commit 100% to camping, another thing to keep in mind: late June/early July is HOT in many of the places you’ll be going, particularly Page/Lake Powell and Moab. In Moab, for example, nighttime temperatures are expected to be in the ’70’s and ’80’s. That probably wouldn’t make for too comfortable a night in a camper that’s been sitting in the sun all day. In these areas, you might want to “splurge” on a site in a developed campground so you can enjoy the comforts of air conditioning. Moab, UT campgrounds Page, AZ campgrounds
      As to your route, that’s kind of a 6-of-one/half-a-dozen-of-another proposition in light of the distance you’ll be traveling. If you hit Grand Canyon South Rim first, you could easily make the loop to Lake Powell, Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef, Moab, and maybe even work Mesa Verde in Colorado into the trip before getting back on I-40 in Albuquerque. If visiting Moab, UT first appeals, then by all means, do it that way. Just remember that this is one area where you may want to book a commercial campsite or even a hotel, so availability of such will likely determine where it falls on your itinerary.

      Good luck and have a great time!

      P.S. Be sure to pick up an “America The Beautiful Federal Lands Access Pass” at the first National Park you visit. For $80, this card grants you access to ALL National Parks, Monuments and Federal Fee Areas for 1 year’s time. It will more than pay for itself on the trip you’re proposing to take. The only places it won’t work are Native American Tribal Park attractions, such as Antelope Canyon and Monument Valley.

    2. Hi Alley,
      How are you?
      My two girlfriends and I are going to Vegas from Toronto. We are planning to go visit Horse Shoe Bend, Grand Canyon South Rim and Antelope Canyon. I was just wondering if we can make it in one day?
      Any tips you can give us to help us plan our one day visit memorable and exciting.
      We are renting a car and planning to leave early from Vegas and come back the same day. Thank you in advance 😊

      1. Hi Mabelle,
        The best tip I can give is that you not do this. It’s too much driving for one day.
        The drive from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon South Rim takes 4.5-5 hours, one way. Allow for at least 60-90 minutes in Grand Canyon Village. Then the drive to Page, AZ can take anywhere from 3.5-4 hours. I know Google Maps lists the drive time as 2.5 hours, but that’s wheels turning, no stops. That rarely happens because the drive is very scenic and there are many viewpoints of the Grand Canyon and other sights you’ll invariably end up stopping at. Then, you need to allow for 90 minutes to 2 hours to tour Antelope Canyon, which must be booked in advance. Plus you shouldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit Horseshoe Bend (if you can find a place to park, that is). There goes another 60-90 minutes. Then, you’re facing yet another 5-hour drive back to Las Vegas.

        I don’t know about you, but that’s not my idea of a “vacation.”
        If one day is truly all you have to spend, and you’ve never been to the Grand Canyon, I would go see it and save Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend for another visit. If you can modify your schedule to include an overnight somewhere, with a very early start, you could go from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon to Page, spend the night in Page, then drive back to Las Vegas the next morning. Otherwise, you’re risking having to drive at night in areas where artificial lighting is kept to a minimum, or is non-existent altogether, and that’s something we strongly discourage.
        Sorry to be the bearer of potentially bad news. There’s so much to see here that you really need 2 days to a week to do it justice.
        Take care and safe travels,
        Alley 🙂
