“Amazing view and large private site. ”

Reviewed May 22, 2018

Overall Rating

Staying in the park within walking distance of the visitor center and shuttle busses is a great way to avoid the lines at the front gate. Site was level and was surrounded by a wall of trees that provided a good sense of privacy. Water is available at the bathroom (outside spigot) or at the dump station located near loop a.

“National Park camping at its finest! ”

Reviewed Mar 12, 2018

Overall Rating

When visiting national parks we love staying inside the park. The convenience of being able to walk to the visitor center, shuttle stop, and even into town for supplies and tasty pizza is hard to beat. But then you throw in a scenic campground with generously sized sites alongside a river and things get even better. Love this campgroun... more

“Nicer than most National Park campgrounds.”

Reviewed Feb 01, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here Thanksgiving 2016. Sites are decently spread out, we had hookups. It's nice to be inside the park boundary due to the amount of traffic on a daily basis waiting to get into the park. A lot of the sites have little plateaus of differing elevation, which is a nice touch. I get the feeling there's no avoiding the crowds... more

“Stunning views”

Reviewed Dec 23, 2017

So very impressed with National Park camp grounds and this one is one of the best! Extremely clean and modern rest rooms, large level sites with power. Close to shops and restaurants as well. Our home country could definitely learn some lessons and how to do camping grounds well like these! (New Zealand)

The scenery is just stunning. The price for our side (30 amp) was $30 per night, but with our senior discount, we only paid $15. We also have a lifetime Senior Pass so we didn't have to pay the entrance fee (which is minimal anyway). Campsites are clean, level, and well laid out. We would have preferred a little more privacy but overal... more

Reviewed Sep 16, 2017

Actual stay August 29, 2017. Watchman campground is a great location for exploring Zion NP. Cost of campsite was $15 with our senior pass, regular price $30 per night. A dump station and potable water is just pass the range station. Our campsite B-43 is not ideal for an RV or travel trailer. Picnic table and fire pit is on the driver ... more

We love staying inside the national park campgrounds. While there is a high cost - the headaches of not having to sit in traffic at the gate every morning or worry about parking is worth it! We were on the river, and could hear it but not see it without walking over the path (a path goes along the river between the back of the site... more

We were camped right next to the river on the 'A' loop. The river is absolutely amazing. Bring a chair, or borrow one from the resort across the river, and soak your feet in the river under the shade while the kids float by in tubes. Absolutely epic. You're camped in the midst of amazing beauty all around, it's really something. The... more
