Salt Lake City to Richfield UT

I see 2 alternate routes to take: I-15 to I-70 east, or exiting I-15 to UT 28 at Nephi, connecting to US 89 south, then to I-70 east of Richfield. Has anyone driven the latter route towing? Any issues? I note this one is marked scenic, as opposed to the interstate. TIA!

RE: On the road Aug 19 - 23 Traffic Volume (Eclipse)

Post-eclipse traffic has been heavy, though, in southeast Idaho. I think folks came here over multiple days, but everybody's leaving at once!

RE: Eclipse - Thermopolis,Wyo.

How did y'all like the traffic this afternoon/evening leaving the area? Saw a picture of the interstate near Douglas - ouch! Resembled Chicago rush hour.

RE: Trip to see fall colors

Wisconsin state parks are great! If you can find any sites with hookups (usually just electric in SPs there) available along your route, you will probably find you enjoy your stay there. We haven't been to the parks that far north though so can't advise specifically. We did stay in a few state parks in the U.P. (Michigan), though, and liked McLain SP and Indian Lake SP - we stayed at both units, and though the west unit is less well-appointed, we thought it was prettier. We liked the Eagle RIver (WI) KOA just west of the U.P., private CG in the woods with hookups. If you will be going across the U.P. and like river traffic, you might enjoy Aune-Osborn Park in Sault Ste Marie. The CG isn't much, a flat plain with camper pads pretty close together, but it's a real kick watching lake freighters glide by RIGHT NEXT to the CG. We loved the Lake Placid/Whiteface Mt KOA in the Adirondacks of NY. Nice & wooded, and I bet it's just gorgeous in the fall. (We were there in late summer.)

RE: Swear my last question not. TT weight

I told myself that we could easily not overpack our TT, but we very likely did. Just from our personal experience, you'll pack that camper a lot more than you think you will. I'd pass & go for something smaller.

RE: Recommendations for a new trailer.

Technically it may not be "too much trailer" but you will be right up against your tow vehicle's ability, and possibly (with passengers & gear) over your Pathfinder's GVWR. Do you plan to take it on long trips, in hilly/mountainous terrain? If so, you may want to rethink this combination, and aim for a smaller trailer or (better, if possible) get a different tow vehicle with more capability. Tough to find small trailers with bunks & fixed adult bed!

RE: Milwaukee, Wisconsin Area 2018

I know someone posted a similar request several days ago and got several responses, including some thumbs up for Cliffside. We stayed there once (albeit with a smaller unit than you have). Pleasant little CG, electric & water sites, no sewer. I don't remember if there was a dump station. There isn't much right around Milwaukee itself. How far away from MKE can you be? Bong SRA west of Kenosha/Racine is nice, and a few sites will fit a rig that long. You can reserve up to 11 months in advance (and I'd recommend it.) Electric hookups only; dump station available.

RE: Looking for a campsite for the eclipse near Portland OR?

You're right - pricey describes it! Too bad you had to cancel - $19 is a steal!

RE: Please Help to find Eclipse spot in Oregon - Yes last minute

Posted this in another thread, but for those still looking, this one's website says they still have some space. Oregon Eclipse Camp

RE: Looking for a campsite for the eclipse near Portland OR?

Farther inland, there's an eclipse camp that, according to their website, still has some vacancies. Pricey, but aren't they all? Oregon Eclipse Camp

RE: Things I noticed on my trip out west.

Glad you had a good trip, dodge guy. Got a chuckle out of your comments about "nothing to see." If you had to make tracks, then that is somewhat true; I will say it took me 5 times across Nebraska before I learned to appreciate the subtle changes in the terrain, vegetation, etc., enroute. Lots of pioneer-related places/activities in NEbraska, but again - if you were on a strict timeline, you wouldn't have had time to enjoy them. Definitely agree, watching the other dudes in Yellowstone is often fun, sometimes scary, and always interesting. The number of Asian tourists has exploded over the last decade or so. (In fact, I suspect that the increased visitation in the park is not due to Americans so much as to thousands of busloads of Asians.) Those signs depicting how to use toilets weren't there before 3-5 years ago, by the way.

RE: Savanna Illinois to Seekonk Ma

I-80 around the south end of Chicago is also I-90 and I-94. It will be very busy during rush hour - busy AM westbound, busy PM eastbound. No way around that unless you go much farther south. (US 30 is NOT a good alternative in that area.) Otherwise it's ok, just expect lots of traffic.

RE: Solo camping Yellowstone and ? in September

City of Rocks is pretty neat; Castle Rock SP (ID) has some nice sites with electric & water. The road into City of Rocks is all packed-down dirt; slippery when wet!! Haven't been there, but there are some SPs in Montana near Dillon that you can camp at. Dry camping, I believe, or Southside RV Park in Dillon would make a decent base camp to visit them.

RE: Advice on campgrounds within Yellowstone.

If you need hookups, Grizzly RV in West Yellowstone would be a good fit for the Old Faithful area. The northeast section of the park has several dry camping CGs, Pebble Creek being (I believe) the largest. Again, if you need hookups, there are a couple private CGs in Gardiner, MT that would be a decent stay for the north end of the park. Fishing Bridge is centrally located but is cheek to jowl.

RE: Campgrounds in Milwaukee, Wisconsin Area 2018

Cliffside is nice, but very small, and is popular. Best to get reservations as soon as you can.

RE: Below freezing in Yellowstone this morning

Sounds wonderful! :)

RE: 30-32' TT - Are they too long, difficult to park, etc?

Depends what specific CGs you want to stay in, but longer trailers are problematic in many national forest, national park and state park campgrounds. This was one reason we downsized from a 34' TT to a 27' one. We still are too long for some places we would like to camp.

RE: RVing to the eclipse?

Find a CG outside of the path and then drive into the path since it's 11AM to 1PM depending on where in WY I would suggest the same thing. We looked months ago for a site in a CG we like inside the totality path, and they were already sold out. (And usually they never sell out.)
