We're travelling from LA to the Grand Canyon and Vegas in August in a 31' Class A Winnebago. We have done a lttle RVing in Florida a few years ago and so we are not complete novices but this is presumably peak vacation time.
Can anyone please advise on whether the RV parks are likely to be full - should we book our parks in advance, or can we just turn up?

Thanks for sharing your experience.

Won't be many RV'ers in Las Vegas during August due to the heat. The Grand Canyon is about 7000' elevation and much cooler so it might be a good idea to call for RV parking reservation.

I assume you are starting in Los Angeles. If you are asking about RV parks in the Los Angeles area, you would be very wise to make reservations as far ahead as possible or you may not find a space. Same thing applies for space anywhere near the Grand Canyon. You can consider Williams, AZ as well as Flagstaff as a base for a trip to the canyon. But, make reservations far in advance.
As to other RV parks in CA, anywhere near a large populated area is a popular destination and I would not take a chance.
p.s. two places in the LA area that aren't far from Disneyland is Golden Shore in Long Beach (also very near to the Queen Mary) and Anaheim RV in Anaheim.

I'd make a reservation now in Trailer Village (full hookups in Grand Canyon) if not available, try Flagstaff. In las Vegas I'd go for Oasis RV Resort. August will be HOT, so prepare.

if you plan to stay at any popular campground in Calif., in August, you need to start booking as soon as possible.

coastal campgrounds and ones near popular tourist spots, can be full six months in advance, such as Yosemite NP.

If you are looking for state parks in California for August you have to make your reservation Feb 1st on ReserveAmerica.com. Vegas will be extremely hot in August, so full hook ups are a must. Grand Canyon trailer Village if you want hooks ups;otherwise, Mather campground.

I stayed in Williams, Az. twice last June. Had resevations on way to Durango, Co. but not on way back. It appeared that with the economy sour, you don't need to call ahead in Williams, as there are several camgrounds with full hookups, with plenty of empty sites.
