I am considering taking the family on a road trip, next summer, and am considering renting an RV instead of staying in motels or hotels. We are a family of 4, two small kids, but may have two more adults (my older kids) going with us. The trip will be from Northern California to Grand Junction, Colorado. We are looking at a week to 10 days looking for opportunites to camp in different places in California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado. Does anyone have advice on what a good rate is, unexpected costs, nice spots to stay, any advice at all ?
I'm assuming you will be taking the quickest route which would be I-80 E?
If so, you will be passing by Donner Lake. Definitely make a stop here, I love this place, such a beautiful and peaceful area.
Salt Lake City should be on your path. If you've never been here before, I'd say to make a stop. It is a good family town in terms of eating and fun things to do. They have an awesome planetarium here called the Clark Planetarium if you want to catch a star show :)
When you finally make it into Colorado, stop at McInnis Canyon National Conservation Area I mean, how cool are these rocks?
