  1. Default RV trip Sacramento to Arizona and back (inc Grand Canyon)

    Greetings- We are planning an RV trip from Sac area to primarily the Grand Canyon, but also taking a detour to Tucson to meet up with relatives. Looking for suggestions on routes, how long to stay in Grand Canyon, etc. We have some special needs kids so hiking is really limited right now. We plan to stay at KOA in Williams the night before visiting the Grand Canyon, that is the only firm plan we have made. Suggestions??? Forgot to note, we are going in September and the current plan is to only visit the south rim of the canyon

    Default Time is key.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    Much will depend on how much time you have available for the trip which you haven't mentioned. It's going to be a couple of days to get to the GC, the best part of a day to Tucson and at least 2 days to get home,add a day at the GC and one in Tucson and there is a week. After that you can see what time you have for other attractions and/or how much time you have to change up your route to visit other places, if that's in your plan at all. Yosemite, Death valley, Zion, Lake Powell, Monument valley and Joshua tree NP are just a few of many places you could include given the time but I would plan on spending a minimum of 2 nights at GC to give yourself a full day or more to look around. If there were any available sites, I would recommend staying in the GC village at the Trailer park which would save you a drive in and is a wonderful experience. Mather campground is also an option although that does not have hook ups.
