RE: Best Route From Santa Fe, NM to Kaneb, UT

There are a lot of possibilities of which Canyon de Chelly is a good one. Another would be to go North from Santa Fe on NM-68 and visit Taos or take US-84 through Abiquiu and visit Ghost Ranch and the Christ in the Desert Monastery. Then head West on US-64 through Chama where there is a scenic railway Then on to Bloomfield and Farmington where there is Aztec Ruins National Monument and Salmon ruins. After Shiprock it would not be that far off route to take a loop North on US-191 to Bluff and then US-163 back to US-160. On this loop you could visit Monument Valley, UT-261 the Moki Dugway, Goosenecks State Park, Hovenweep National Monument, Natural Bridges National Monument, Bluff Fort, South Fork of Mule Canyon and House on Fire, The Valley of The Gods, and the Sand Island Petroglyphs. Once back on US-160, AZ-98 will take you to Page.

RE: Hwy 191 from Grand Tetons to I-40 in Arizona

We have driven that route many times over the years. It is mostly 2 lane. There always seems to be a few rough palces and some construction somewhere. If you are planning to use it soon, check for the status of fires in the area South of Grand Teton. There are campgrounds in Pinedale, Boulder, Rock Springs and Green River in Wyoming. There is a Flying J in Rock Springs. There are a number of both public and commercial campgrounds around the Flaming Gorge Recreation Area. There are campgrounds at Steinecker and Red Fleet State Parks North of Vernal, commercial campgrounds in Vernal and campgrounds in Dinosaur National Monument. I believe the Smith's in Vernal may have a fuel station or there is one very close by. There are a few campgrounds/rv parks near Price and Green River, UT. Lots of RV parks and campgrounds in the Moab area. There are several campgrounds in the Blanding/Bluff area. There is a campground at Canyon De Chelly National Monument.

RE: Florida to Grand Canyon and sites along the way

There a lot to see along I-40 between Amarillo and the Grand Canyon. As mentioned there is Palo Duro Canyon State Park and the Big Texan on Old Route 66. In New Mexico, Tucumcari still has dinners along Historic Route 66 and numerous murals painted on buildings plus other attractions like the foundry and dinosaur museum at the college. Santa Rosa is another Route 66 town and has the The Blue Hole and Santa Rosa Lake State Park which has a nice campground. In Albuquerque, the Pueblo Cultural Center and Petroglyph National Monument are worth visiting in my opinion. In Grants, there is the Mining Museum. Just South of I-40 going West from Grants are El Malpais National Monument, El Moro National Monument and the Ice Cave and Bandera Volcano. Acoma Sky City is said to be the longest occuppied location in the U.S. They give tours of the pueblo and there is an RV park next to the casino. On the way to Flagstaff along I-40 are Petrified Forest National Park, Meteor Crater and Homolovi Ruins State Park. You can stand on the corner in Winslow Arizona. In the Flagstaff area are Sunset Crater National Monument, Wupatki National Monument, and Walnut Canyon National Monument. Sedona/Camp Verde/Cottonwood are about an hour South of Flagstaff with Montezuma Castle and Montezuma Well National Monuments, Tuzigoot National Monument, Palatki and Honaki Ruins, V-Bar-V Heritage Site, Verde Canyon Railroad, Fort Verde State Park, Cathedral Rock, Gold King Mine, Jerome State Historic Park in the area. There is a nice campground at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in Cottonwood. All this before you even get to the Grand Canyon.

RE: Arizona White Mountains Monsoon adventure...

Love the Big Lake Area. Many smaller campgrounds like Buffalo Crossing are farther from the heavier traffic areas around the lake and offer river fishing rather than a lake. The ride on US-191 from Alpine South to Hannagan Meadow and on towards Morenci and Clifton is a very scenic route and a favorite of motorcyclists.

RE: Heading west thru Montana

...Get off 94 at Glendive, MT and take 200 west into Great Falls...We did this route a few years ago. Nice drive with virtually no traffic. Not many services either. The commercial campground in Jordan listed in some of the directories was closed. The Hell Creek State Park is 25 miles from highway 200. At that time, a small no frills park was open in Winnett. The next parks were in Lewistown.

RE: Flagstaff to Ruidoso, NM

In addition to Pie Town, that route (US-60) will take you past The Very Large Array. There is a BLM campground at Datil Well. If you continue East toward Ruidoso on US-380, there is the Valley of Fires Recreation Area near Carrizozo that also has a campground. If you continue East on US-380 to Capitan, you can visit The Smokey Bear Historic Site. Fort Stanton is not too far from Capitan. NM-48 will take you from Capitan to Ruidoso.

RE: Western/central Iowa

There are the covered bridges featured in "The Bridges of Madison County" near Winterset where John Wayne's Birthplace Museum is located. Winterset also has a nice City Park Campground. Maybe to far East, but there is the birthplace of Captain James T. Kirk and a Star Trek Museum in Riverside.

RE: Navajo Nation Attractions

if National bridges monument is that site with 3 arches, it was a disappointment to me after the Arches.Everyone's likes and dislikes are different. Natural Bridges is 72 miles from Monument Valley. Arches is 163 miles.

RE: Navajo Nation Attractions

Some places perhaps a little closer to Monument Valley: UT-261 the Moki Dugway Goosenecks State Park Hovenweep National Monument Natural Bridges National Monument Bluff Fort South Fork of Mule Canyon and House on Fire The Valley of The Gods Sand Island Petroglyphs Edge of the Cedars State Park Dinosaur Museum

RE: Yellowstone, Tetons, places to see grizzly, moose, wolves

It can change year to year and with the seasons. In our several visits to Yellowstone over the years, the Slough Creek and Lamar Valley areas have been where we have seen the most wolves and bears. Usually where there is a carcass that they are feeding on. If you see a van and a bunch of folks with spotting scopes, stop and talk to them. They are very likely the biologists that are tracking/studying the animals in the park. The few moose we have seen in Yellowstone were in the Petrified Tree/Blacktail Creek area where there are willows that they like to feed on. We have seen more moose in Grand Teton in willow stands around the Jackson Lake and along the Gros Ventra River.

RE: Camping prices!!!

...I have visited Washington, D.C., numerous times. I usually stay at Evergreen National Park...I think you mean Greenbelt National Park. Prince William Forest National Park in Dumfries, Virginia is not that far from D.C. and the public transportation. It has a campground and a concession run RV park where the electric & water sites are $38; full hookups are more. However, the OP said he was looking for places in Maryland and has not answered what part of the state he is interested in.

RE: highway 191 from Green River Wy to Vernal Utah

...be careful on the steep descent above Vernal...X2. There are 10 switchbacks in the 9 mile descent. Most are posted at 20MPH. Some of the grade is as steep as 8%. You can not start down too slow, but you can get going too fast. Take your time.

RE: Camping prices!!!

...Surely there must be some like in other states - i.e. national forests at 1/2 off with the Senior Pass or city or county parks...any boondocking in Maryland?...As far as I know there are no National Forest, BLM or Corps of Engineers campgrounds in Maryland. The only National Park Campgrounds for RVs that I am aware of are Catoctin Mountain near Frederick and Greenbelt near Washington DC. Greenbelt does not have any hookups, but does have a dump station. There are not that many Maryland State Parks with campgrounds. Not all of them allow pets and the ones that do only allow them in certain sites if that is an issue for the OP. Maryland does have a $10 senior pass that is available to non-residents and provides a 50% discount Sunday through Thursday. The Free Campsites Website doesn't show much other than parking lots. Boondockers Welcome looks like it has members in four locations.

RE: Camping prices!!!

...I have to come to Maryland for family and I still have some chores to do in the area in summer. I live aboard and dont have an income. Who the hell can aford $30 freaking dollars a night?? Its a parking spot for $900 a month. I should just get an apartment... If you have to be in a specific place at a specific time, that can greatly reduce your campground options. If you need to stay for a month or more, that can eliminate places like Corps of Engineers, Forest Service and State Park campgrounds that often have stay limits of less than a month.

RE: Amarillo to Red River, NM

Thanks for the replies took a look and will go to Raton then 64 to eagle nest and 38 up to red river.Instead of taking US-64 to Raton, I prefer US-412 from Clayton to Springer, then I-25 North to NM-58 to Cimarron, US-64 to Eagle Nest and NM-38 to Red River. My mapping program shows US-287 from Amarillo to US-385 to US-87 to US-412 to I-25 to NM-58 to US-64 to NM-38 to Red River as 280.1 miles. The climb from Cimarron to Eagle Nest through Cimarron Canyon doesn't have any really large drop offs as it is following the river. The climb on NM-38 to the summit of Bobcat Pass is more gradual than the descent into Red River. If my memory is correct, the passenger will be on the Mountain side not looking over the guard rail when travelling from Eagle Nest to Red River. Just as an aside, there may not be a pass on the route through Taos and Questa, but there is a good climb. Questa is 7,461' and Red River is 8.671'. They are only 12.5 miles apart and the climb is not one even grade.

RE: Navajo Nation

...I'll keep researching and see how it goes... We primarily boondock so camping and orv trails are another research issue...We have spent a considerable amount of time in and around the tribal lands of Arizona and New Mexico and truly enjoyed our time there. Unless you are a Tribal Member, you will likely need a permit for recreational activities if you are permitted access at all to areas outside of developments or areas specifically open to the general public. I can recall signs on BIA-13 between Chinle and Shiprock advising that access to the tribal lands away from the few scenic vista parking areas was prohibited without a permit. Same thing in Salt River Canyon in Arizona. At Canyon De Chelly and Monument Valley you need a guide to access some areas. We have visited areas where only tribal members may access/enter certain streets. If you visit some of the historic pueblos, you may not be allowed to take pictures or may have to purchase a photo permit. In my experience, it is always a good idea to ask before taking a picture of Tribal members. When driving be on the lookout for cattle. horses, dogs and children; they are all free range.

RE: Online search engines for camper locations??

uscampgrounds.info for all publicly owned campgrounds.While I like the U.S. Campgrounds website, it DOES NOT list all publicly owned campgrounds. It claims to list 13,000 public campgrounds. The Ultimate Public Campground Project lists over 25,000 public campgrounds and even it is not all inclusive seeming to be able to find and add more just about every month. Each lists some that the other does not. Links for both are in my previous post.

RE: Online search engines for camper locations??

In my experience no website or search engine will list all the campgrounds or RV Parks. Depending on what you are looking for some will be more complete than others. I use the following websites to help find commercial campgrounds/RV Parks along our route: RV Park Reviews Passport America Allstays RV Parky Woodalls For local, state and federal public campgrounds, I like: National Forest Campground Guide Corps of Engineers Campgrounds Ultimate Public Campground Project U.S. Campgrounds For low cost or drycamping/boondocking, I use: Free Campgrounds Free Campsites Bob’s Cheap or Free Campgrounds Dean’s List Boondockers Welcome Harvest Host Days End Directory
