My family (2 adults, 1 - 9 year old) has decided to take an 11 day spring break (end of March) road trip from Minnesota down to Denver, Mesa Verde, Page, AZ (Lake Powell & Grand Canyon), Four Corners, Great Sand Dunes and Colorado Springs.
We had it all mapped out when we realized that all of the campgrounds in Mesa Verde & Great Sand Dunes area are still closed. We are assuming that this is because it is still cold/cool at night.
We are not a big camping family but for the the savings we were planning to tent our way through the trip. Since we can't do that I'm considering getting all of the hotel rooms through priceline. My big question is, is this a trip that we should really wait and take in June? Or will it still be worth taking even though its not exactly warm? Second question is: would anyone advise camping / tenting at Lake Powell (Page, AZ) at the end of March or does it get way to cold at night that we'd be happier getting a hotel? We may be from Minnesota but really don't want to be so cold that it ruins the trip.
Thanks for your help!
