Get our top tips for saving money on a campervan trip:

By Allison Fitts & Lillian Robinson

The United States is full of beautiful, awe-inspiring national parks that many campervan renters center their trips around. If you are looking to visit some of the most iconic ones or get the most bang for your buck, then look no further than Utah with its Mighty 5 National Parks.

Known fondly as “The Mighty 5,” Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and Zion are not to be missed. They can easily be visited in one fell swoop from Escape’s Las Vegas, Denver, and Phoenix depots (round trip and one-way!). Read all of our tips for each park below and tell us you aren’t hyped to head out west!
