So, the National Parks are shut and husband and I are on a US road trip of a lifetime, during which we were due to visit/camp at many of those National Parks. Boo! Please help us salvage our trip and tell us about your favorite State Parks/hikes/non-NPS camping spots in OR, CA, AZ and southern UT!

We are travelling by car. Luckily, we got to the Tetons/Yellowstone in time and are now in Twin Falls, ID - missed out on Craters of the Moon :( , planning to see Shoshone Falls in the morning before heading west. Our route from here is west through OR to Portland, south to San Francisco (we were planning Crater Lake and Redwoods...) then over to Death Valley, Grand Canyon/Zion/Bryce/Arches (all NPS!), down to Davis Mountains in TX (which is State, so we should be ok there) then onward back to the mid-Atlantic coast - we need to be in NC by Thanksgiving.
This timing sucks so bad, we are hoping it doesn't last too long, but we want/need to prepare for the worst!
