Bryce tends to be a bit cooler, but it is also very popular during the summer travel season. There are some small campgrounds in the mountains outside Escalante (such as Posy Lake) and on Boulder Mountain, but we have yet to camp in any of them. Most seem to be small to tiny, and many are FCFS. That area is also a bit more off the beaten path.
Cedar Breaks NM is high, too. We've done day trips there when camping at Zion as heat relief.

I think we will be looking at at partial - full hook up site because of the temps AND where reservations can be made, since most will be traveling some distance and want to know we have a site reserved.

And looking at June 17-19, 2016 so we are spaced from the 2016 CO Rally.

Another suggestion:

http://stateparks.utah.gov/parks/kodachrome-basin/

I would need to check if they take Reservations for:
Group Overnight Camping:
Arch Group Campground: $80 flat rate (35 people max – 10 vehicles or 6 RVs max)
This way there would be a choice between Full Hook up, no hook up sites and we can have 6 reserved.

This looks like another interesting area!

We have always camped at Escalante Petrified Forest SP. Some aren't too happy with the close spacing of many of the sites, and some are pretty short. They've been adding power to some sites in the original loop. Here's the view of our site w/the Cobalt in the newer, small, lake loop:

We've driven by the RV place in town, but haven't explores it. As long as we can get one of the sites we like, we're apt to stay at the SP.
Right now, it looks like the June 17-19 dates will work for me, still depends on what DH's travels turn out to be like. It'll be hot in Escalante itself and the GSENM.

Did a date and site ever get decided on for the Quad-State Rally?

I have the 17-19th on my calendar, though would be adding days before and after for travel time. I'm still tentative, since DH's schedule isn't quite clear yet, but if a place is decided upon, I'll make reservations and cancel if need be.

I'm in site 33, loop A; I missed the part about loop B :). Should be interesting, DH and I will be at North Rim Memorial Day week. I bet I'll still drive over to the Rim for a visit.
BTW, the link you included is for reserveamerica.com, but to make the reservation it sends you to recreation.gov

Not sure if reserveameric.coma is messed up, though I look at it before switching to recreation.gov.
My reservation confirmation says "LOPA". Looking at the map on recreation.gov, it looks like both A & B have reservable sites (at least they're in blue, usually non-reservable sites are in brown).
I picked from pics on campsitephotos.com and for a pull-through. I need to get better about backing the TT, especially solo, but chose the easier way out this time.
