Day 42

This morning we left the Zion River Resort for Cedar City. I had checked with about 5 campgrounds in the area between Zion and Bryce and all of them were booked solid for the weekend, The Cedar City KOA online registration system said that they couldn't accommodate a 32' 5th wheel trailer in a back in site. But when I changed it to a 33' 5th wheel trailer, no problem. So I went ahead and made the reservation for two nights. Backing the trailer in is getting easier each time.

I haven't stayed at a KOA campground for quite a while. It seems fine though a little expensive even with the 10% discount. Maybe it's all of the sales tax that I'm not used to. The weekend is supposed to be really hot so I was not inclined to stay where we couldn't connect to shore power. Having a pool is a nice plus for any campground especially in these temperatures. There was a very talkative gentleman at the pool today who was enjoying the cool weather. He was from Las Vegas where it's around 112°F today. It turns out that he used to live about 3 miles from where my parents lived back when I was in college.

Tomorrow, we are planning to explore Cedar Breaks National Monument.

  1. Never booked KOA as they always seemed too expensive, but having a pool when it's hot certainly has its perks.

    1. This was about the only "reservable" campsite I could find. And it has been completely full the last two nights.

  2. We aren't KOA regulars either, but this trip we've stayed at them twice and the price has been comparable to other private parks and they were very big rig friendly, which makes it nice to get in and out.

    1. The price was a little higher but not out of line.

  3. Sometimes we do like the KOAs for the amenities: clean showers, pools, laundry facilities. :)
