Motor Home Destination: Blanding - Utah's Desert Country

Recreation & Leisure
Maybe you've never heard of Blanding, Utah, but you've probably heard of Mesa Verde, Monument Valley, the Four Corners, Lake Powell and Moab. Well, Blanding is a small town that is big with motor home enthusiasts, because it sits in the middle of the southeastern Utah desert, right in the middle of all these attractions.

Aside from the tourist destinations already mentioned, Blanding puts you within spitting distance of Arches National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, Natural Bridges National Monument, Hovenweep, Goosenecks State Park, Rainbow Bridge, Valley Of The Gods and the Grand Canyon. Add to this the fact that the area around this little town offers some of the prettiest desert scenery you'll see anywhere, and you can easily see why so many motor home owners are heading there when it's vacation time.

Blanding is more than just pretty scenery. Though small, the town boasts some unique cultural attractions that you won't want to miss. The Edge of the Cedars State Park, near the Four Corners, has ancient artifacts from the Anasazi Indians who lived here centuries ago. They also have a reconstructed kiva that you can go into and feel the ghosts of the past around you. There is also a Dinosaur Museum that has unusual fossils and bones, as well as a life-sized reproduction of T. Rex, and baby dinosaurs.

There are also lots of activities to make your stay fun and memorable. Blanding has hiking, mountain biking, river rafting, jeeping and great camping.

Best of all, the Blanding area has scenic drives. The Abajo Loop goes across the mountains, taking you up over a pass at 9,000 feet before descending into the Canyonlands National Park. The Elks Ridge Road Scenic Byway gives you a chance to see some unusual rock formations like the "Bear's Ears" and the bridges at Natural Bridges, New Mexico. The Trail of the Ancients Scenic Byway takes you through 130 miles of Utah's most rugged desert. The road is well paved and has very little traffic due to its isolation, so you can stop along the way anytime and take in the amazing scenery.

There are lots of places to stay in Blanding where motor homes are welcome. Here are some of the most popular.

Cross Canyon Ranch - This RV park has 115 hook-ups. It is quiet and peaceful, with full hook-ups, flushing toilets, facilities for dumping, and drinking water. They are open all year.

Dalton Springs - This beautiful campground is located right in the middle of the Abajo Mountains, five miles west of Monticello. Operated by the National Forest Service, Dalton Springs is open from May through October. It has 16 sites for RV's and the nightly rate is $7. The campground is pretty rugged, but quiet and stunningly beautiful.

Devil's Canyon Campground - This campground is also located near Monticello, 11 miles to the south, and operated by the Forest Service. It is open only during the summer months of June through September. There are 33 sites and the fee is $10.

Kampark - For a good commercial campground with lots of amenities, try Blanding's Kampark. Located right on Highway 191, this campground is open all year, and has full hook ups, running water and flushing toilets.

If you're looking to take a break from the busy life, driving your motor home out to Blanding, Utah is a good option. You can have all the scenery you need in the comfort of your own RV. If you're looking for an RV, visit Bankston Motor Homes to get started.
