Known as the "the grand staircase" and featuring a half-mile deep geological amphitheater, Cedar Breaks National Monument is one of America's most interesting parks and is perfect for RV lovers. Cedar Breaks National Monument is located in south-western Utah, specifically in Iron County near the west end of the Colorado Plateau. The human history of the area dates back thousands of years to when The Southern Paiute Native American tribe called the area home. Eventually they had to defend their land from other tribes and then eventually the European-Americans who decimated their current population to less than 1,000. During the Great Depression Era the first amenities were built in and around the National Monument, some of which are still in use today.
The park is most famous for its stunning rock formations that has resulted in a huge natural amphitheater that stretches across three miles and features a depth of over 2,000 feet. The highest point of the amphitheater also has an elevation of over 10,000 feet above sea level which brings large snowfall during the winter months.
Along with checking out the impeccable views from the top of the amphitheater, there are plenty of other activities to be found within the area. Guided ranger tours, hiking, stargazing and winter recreational activities can all be experienced and if you are in the area in the first few weeks of July you may even get to check out the wildflower festival!
