I'm planning a road trip from SF to NY _starting tuesday July 8, and going through Vegas to Antelope Canyon near Page, AZ. We need to be in Antelope Canyon at noon, and leaving from Vegas is 5 hours (if we don't get lost), so we'd have to get up REALLY early (5am or so), so, we're considering driving out of Vegas the day before our tour of Antelope, and finding a campground maybe 3-4 hours down the road (or 1 hour away from Antelope)... any recommendations for a car+tent campground?

there are so many choices, and since I'm not a big camper, I don't know what or where to look at/for, so any recommendations that we could start our research on would be great. Doesn't have to be fancy, but hopefully safe and with some basic utilities.

After Antelope for a few hours, we'd like to drive up, maybe make a quick stop at Zion, but continue up towards Escalante (we plan on doing Spooky and Pekaboo slot canyons the next day), so we'd like to find some campgrounds somewhere along hwy 12(?) as close as possible to Escalante, so we can do the hike the next morning.

After pekaaboo (3-4 hr roundtrip hike), we'd like to keep driving up towards Arches, and again find a campground as close to Arches as possible (along 24/191?) so we can do arches the next day.

Any reputable, popular, good quality, fairly priced suggestions appreciated. Looking at reviews online they all sort of look the same.

Alternatively, feel free to suggest any forums for campgrounds where I can post this same question..
