Goodyear AZ (Low 47 Very Warm with Sunshine High 83)

Bob has started laying out our travel once we leave the Phoenix area the end of March. We have to be in Denver in September for some medical tests and we have to figure in reservations for at least Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day. Probably would be a good idea to have reservations from Memorial Day to Labor Day since we have needed them in the past in Minnesota and Michigan. Here is what we have so far, 1 week at each location:

Any comments will be appreciated on route, stops, need for reservations, etc. We are seeing a number of things we have wanted to see for a long time: London Bridge, Joshua Tree National Park, Sequoia National Park, Reagan Library, Hearst Castle, Yosemite, Monterey Aquarium, Crater Lake, Oregon Coast, etc. (and that is just the first part of the trip). We also know that there is a lot more to see, when Bob tried to fit all in California he wanted to see he mapped out the weeks and he was into August already so he had to scale back. 

Leaves something for next trip!

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. Of your list Crater Lake is my favorite. We stayed at a small RV park about 20 miles from yhe south entrance that I think was just called Crater Lake RV. It was the closest full hook up park that we could find. Quite plesant, and not too expensive. The campground at Crater Lake looked very tight. I'm not sure if they had hook ups or not.

  2. I see you have Bandon pegged on the map - a little farther south is Harris Beach and Brookings. Great places to stay there. Sunset Bay State campground in Charleston/Coos Bay is a wonderful place to stay. If you are going to Westfir, I bet you are staying at Casey's. Best park in that area - love it there. Be glad to share anything you want to know about western Oregon but would probably be too long-winded for your comment section. You can email me if I can be of any help.

  3. I know that Donna and Russ can really give you some good info. We haven't spent much time in that area so pretty useless. We were at Crater Lake in May and there was so much snow nothing was open and we had to climb a huge snow bank to even see the lake. See you guys Friday.
