We are going to be camped out in Vernal Utah for a few days. We are planning to visit Dinosaur NP. Besides the dig site, I'm looking for some suggestions of scenic roads or other sites that are acessable with my 26ft Class C. As always suggestions are appreciated.

Research the Flaming Gorge area, there are things that might be of interest to you. I haven't been there in years so I won't comment on the roads.

Nothing scenic unless, you go up and over the hill to Flaming Gorge area. There are different ways to get to Dinosaur from Vernal. Jones Hole scenic goes to Dinosaur the back way from Vernal.

The drive in from Colorado is Beautiful - https://www.bing.com/maps?osid=3424b93b-........~-109.375302&lvl=10&v=2&sV=2&form=S00027

And we Will never miss Flaming Gorge - Just Awesome, and the water and beaches are great.

The drive over the Moutain is real but the rewards are well worth it - https://www.bing.com/maps?osid=c169edd3-........8~-109.867223&lvl=9&v=2&sV=2&form=S00027

Hope this helps.

1) UT McConkie Ranch Petroglyphs
2) UT Moonshine arch TH
3) Dinosaur Tracks
4) Little Brush Creek Cave

And there is a good road that runs, I think, east of DNM, to the river passing an interesting cave and ending on the river with a good walk along the river and some interesting views along it. For what ever reason I don't have it on my list but maybe it's that little brush creek cave.
DNP have been re-done and you have to park and take the shuttle now to the field house. There used to be some other roads thru the NM but I don't know what their status is now.

Here it is: Echo park whicpering cave
'
Oh and Flamming Gorge is great but a ways off of DNM, we boondocked there 4 days last year. Do the geology drive at the south end if you go.

Are the McKonkie Ranch and Little Brush creek cave accessible with my Class C?

Google them, Echo Park is and I'm fairly sure McKonkie is.

Driving Echo Park Rd is fun but unless it's a very short high clearance Class C, it's not a suitable road.
