For a list of NPS-run sites at Death Valley, click here. Be aware that the National Park Service campgrounds do not provide hookups for recreational vehicles. RV hookups are only available at the concession-run Stovepipe Wells RV Park and the privately owned Panamint Springs resort.

There are several activities that you can enjoy during your visit to Yellowstone. If you like walking, think about taking some of the day hikes. You will also have the opportunity to tour the visitor centers. Because of the many activities available at Yellowstone, I would advise that you visit the park's website for additional information. Also when you arrive to the park, stop by the Visitor Center and they will be certainly help you out. Enjoy your trip and be sure to stop back to OhRanger.com and post your pictures and stories!

This is actually not an easy question to answer as there are a lot of wonderful things to do.  It really depends on how much time you have.  The first thing you should do is just take a look.  The canyon is magnificent and all the pictures you have seen don't do it justice.  Take a walk around the canyon.  I assume you will be visiting the south rim and around the rim there is a nice easy trail you can walk on to get different views of the canyon.  If you are up for a more rigorous hike, go down into the canyon.  Either the Bright Angel Trail or the South Kaibab Trail will provide you different perspectives of the canyon and you can hike as little or as much as you want.  Get up early to watch the sunrise or find a spot to watch the sunset.  At the beginning and the end of the day you can watch the colors of the canyon change and get the most dramatic views.  And stop at one of the visitor centers and talk to the park rangers.  There is a daily schedule of ranger led talks and walks where you can learn about Grand Canyon history, geology, animal and plant life, etc.

We were just there in May and had a wonderful time.  I hope you do too.

It's best to check with the specific location you plan to visit, as the rules vary depending on which agency manages the public land and can also vary from site to site, even within a given agency. For example, the National Park Service generally prohibits driving off designated roads, though there are a few exceptions such as Canyonlands, which is in Utah and definitely worth a trip one day if you haven't already visited. Arizona State Parks require a permit for Off Highway Vehicles; however, this does not apply to pickup trucks, SUVs, cars and RVs. To find out more about the specific destination you have in mind in Arizona, check out http://azstateparks.com/OHV/permits.html and, if you're venturing off road into the backcountry, learn the basic safety requirements and always let someone know your itinerary before you depart, just in case of emergency.

Have fun and be sure to visit OhRanger.com to share your experience with other park-lovers.
