Day 1 Pick up your campervan at Cruise America
Pick up your camper van in Las Vegas and head straight to Blake Ranch for your first night. You will enter Arizona via the Hoover Dam, but we suggest you visit it on your way back. It is possible that this area is under the control of the Department of Security, but there is nothing to fear. It is worth remembering that behind the dam there are several million liters of water in the Colorado River.
Day 2 Williams
Today you're heading to Williams and then camping on the Grand Canyon Railway, next to the train depots and hotel. The whole thing creates a quite nice holiday destination. Campsite guests can also use the hotel's indoor pool and jacuzzi, as well as the bar and restaurant.
Day 3 by camper to Grand Canyon
The most awaited point of the day's agenda will be a stop on the border of the majestic national park. This impression will not be captured by any photo, image or film - you have to see it with your own eyes. We recommend camping Mather, which has showers and toilets, although electricity is not available. Maybe you will be tempted by an unforgettable helicopter flight to the Canyon itself or over it?
Day 4 head to Sedona
Continue on I-40 to Flagstaff and then south on I-17 towards Coconino National Forest. Then take the Sedona exit and you will arrive at your next accommodation after a while - Rancho Sedona will soon welcome you. From here, you can walk to restaurants, shops and galleries in the nearby town. The campsite is situated among breathtaking red rock formations.
Day 5 RV through the Prescott National Forest
Today you will loop through the Prescott National Forest and return to Seligman. The tour will take you approximately an hour. On the way, you can visit the museums of western art and Prescott's Indian artifacts. The property of Sharlot Hall, the first seat of the local governor, is also highly recommended. Right after Ash Fork you will enter Route 66 again, and from here it is not far to the KOA campsite.
Day 6 of Route 66 via Peach Springs
There is not much left to travel on the historic Route 66, which is known to run from Chicago to LA. We have one of its longest stretches left, which leads along the picturesque route through Peach Springs, right on the border with the Hualapai Indian Reserve, to Kingman. We're heading to Fort Beale camping. ✪ 90 miles to Kingman ★ Visit the Grand Canyon Caverns, where the air reaches almost 100 kilometers into the ground from the canyon itself.
Day 7 Hoover Dam
Today will be your chance to spend a moment at Hoover Dam. There is a lot to discover here. The Colorado River dam is a remarkable achievement of human thought - turbines run at eighty-five miles per hour and generate power for a large area of three states. We can confidently say that for the last night we selected the best camping in Las Vegas for you.
Day 8 Returning your campervan in Las Vegas
Today there is a short way ahead of you. You'll only travel 10 miles to Las Vegas to drop off your camper.
