“Windy yet wonderful ”

Reviewed Apr 17, 2018

Overall Rating

This was a beautiful Mesa to camp on top of. It was crazy windy but the views were worth it. Our dogs loved the freedom of running around free. Highly recommend for anyone in a small camper or sprinter van. It it’s windy you wouldn’t want to be in a tent.

“Think twice before you drive down the dirt track to the second campsite.”

Reviewed Apr 08, 2016

Overall Rating

There are two campsites at Flying Monkey Mesa. The first one is right when you turn off Mesa Rd. and the second one is down a dirt track (at the same turn) that parallels above Mesa Rd. leading to a nice larger site. We tried to stay at the second/larger site but our friends driving a motorhome got stuck on the way in – really badly... more

What a quiet, peaceful campsite, and only 20 minutes from Zion National Park. There are 2 campsites at Flying Monkey. We stayed at the site farthest from Hgwy 9. To reach it, travel .68 miles north on Mesa Rd. and turn right into the drive. At the fork, turn left up the hill to reach site 1. The mesa top hides Hgwy 9 from view and bloc... more
