Itinerary for four weeks in western USA by RV – the ultimate road trip


Four weeks in western USA by RV was a dream come true. We traveled in July 2017, from Denver in Colorado to South Dakota, Wyoming, Idaho, Utah and Arizona. We mainly stayed in national park campgrounds. It was a great way to explore the national parks of the American west with children.

Here we share our itinerary, where we stayed and highlights for inspiration. We have travelled in the amazing American west in other formats as well: two weeks in car and hotels and three weeks with car and tent.

Here you can read how we organised food and meals when we travelled in tent and RV.
