Beaver Dam State Park, NV

158 RV rentals

Beaver Dam State Park has a history of disaster. In the early to mid-1930s, the CCC dammed up the area and started construction on the land building amenities and trails for visitors. Storms and faulty manufacturing caused the dam to burst and flood out the park two …

Bryce Canyon National Park, UT

With awe-inspiring geological wonders spread across a colorful, surreal landscape, Bryce Canyon National Park should be on every RV traveler’s must-visit list.

Capitol Reef National Park, UT

33 RV rentals

In south-central Utah lies a rocky empire of cliffs and canyons called Capitol Reef National Park. This vast, 241,904-acre park is 13 miles away from Bicknell, and around 67 miles away from both Escalante and Emery. Back in the 1920s, the area was called Wayne Wonderland, a name befitting one of the largest exposed monocline areas in the U.S.

The park was established to preserve the Waterpocket Fold, which is just one of the geological features that make this place unique and significant. The landmass is most likely a product of the same continental plate collision that also created the Rocky Mountains. The sandstone cliffs and gleaming white domes are simply a byproduct of erosion that spanned millions …

Cathedral Gorge State Park, NV

133 RV rentals

Set in a narrow valley, Cathedral Gorge State Park is a wonderland of jagged clay spires and rugged slot canyons. The ethereal landscape is tens of millions of years in the making and was formed when volcanic explosions from the Caliente Caldera Complex fractured the bedrock and deposited thick layers of ash in the newly formed valley. Over time, forces of wind and water eroded the ash deposits and shaped the cathedral-like spires and winding caves you see today.

After being awarded state park status in 1935, Cathedral Gorge quickly emerged as one of the top outdoor recreation areas in Nevada. Today, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the park, whether you're exploring hiking trails, picnicking at historic Civilian …

Cedar Breaks National Monument, UT

A unique Utah geological wonder, Cedar Breaks National Monument is shaped roughly like an amphitheater with a natural curve in the cliff walls. The rim of the cliff wall is 10,000 feet above sea level, making it the highest monument park in the United States. President Roosevelt signed into law, officially establishing Cedar Breaks National Monument as a national monument in 1933, partly to protect the natural beauty of the landscape, partly to preserve bristlecone pine trees. The bristlecone pine trees, which are rare, are one of the oldest trees in the country; some are believed to be at least 1,600 years old.

Echo Canyon State Park, NV

135 RV rentals

Nevada’s Great Basin has a fascinating history that had a violent volcanic start hundreds of millions of years ago. The region eventually calmed down and became filled with water, some areas containing a brilliant pink sediment at the bottom of the lake. When this massive lake dried, that pink clay dried out and was shaped by the elements over the next few millennia, creating what is now Echo Canyon. This canyon was dammed in 1970, creating Echo Canyon Reservoir and Echo Canyon State Park.

The reservoir is a modest 65 acres contained within the 1,800-acre state park. This region was initially inhabited by the Fremont native tribes 1,000 years ago, who left evidence of their seasonal hunts here with pictographs …

Gunlock State Park, UT

139 RV rentals

In the late 1960s, the state of Utah realized a need to create irrigation and flood control for the towns downriver - St. George, in particular - and set about to create a reservoir. Upon completion of the dam, the state officially established Gunlock State Park, which borders the reservoir, to foster recreational fun in the area. Gunlock State Park and the nearby town, Gunlock, take their name from the first settler in the area, William “Gunlock Will” Hamblin, who arrived in 1857. In addition to being skilled at repairing gunlocks (muzzleloaders’ firing mechanism), Gunlock Will was a renowned sharpshooter.

Also of minor interest is the main access road to Gunlock State Park, which was originally used by raiders who …
