Im planning a similar trip for late May-early June. I will most likely do a little of both and was interested in your recommendations for hotels/camping sites.

Ah. Well, I typically go for the cheapest place I can find that has wifi. I don't care much for any other amenities because I usually get in late and leave early. But here's where I stayed, if it helps:

near Zion - Zion Park Motel. Pleasant enough, it was recommended to me as a decent cheap option close to the park by another hotel owner.

near Page, AZ - Motel 6 (there's a lot of options in Page)

near Mexican Hat - Hat Rock Inn (I was REALLY impressed with this place for the dough)
http://www.hatrockinn.com/
- if you stay here, go to Swinging Steaks for dinner.

Don't even remember where I stayed in Cedar City, but there's a ton of options there.

Thanks! I wish I had stayed, but I only packed what I needed for hotels. Didn't think my bike with Tourances would keep up with what you guys were planning on doing.

I guess there's always next year...

Great trip report. You took the route I tell all my LA friends to take if they have a week off. So much to see in utah.

Nice to see you visited and enjoys my park :) I guess I should get on here more and offer my fellow inmates a room and shower when they visit the park. Cheers

bikerman - all said and done, I was away from home for 6 days. But as you can probably guess, there were some days where I covered 500 miles and a few days where I only covered 200 or so. Hope you'll be able to enjoy with the XR.

I couldn't not believe how much there is to see in Southern Utah. Got any other recommendations of your area for a LA guy who'd be glad to come back the next time I've got a break from classes?
