First timers at Zion National Park, so we stayed the night at this campground. Easy late check in (board on the entrance with your lot number), spots clearly marked, and clean facilities.

“Relaxing ”

Reviewed Mar 16, 2019

Overall Rating

Stayed in March 2019. This year Zion got about 5x the amount of its average rainfall. The rain caused rock slides under Hwy 9 thus closing the park btw Canyon Junction and the East entrance. Despite half the park being inaccessible, my camping (near the West entrance) was wonderful. Mule deer strolled thru the camp, and we got both gen... more

“Great "glamping" experience”

Reviewed Feb 01, 2019

Overall Rating

Loved this campground. We stayed here on a final leg of a 10 day road trip to all of the Utah national parks. If you're looking for a rugged backcountry experience to get off the grid, this isn't it. You're just steps away from the park visitors center and the entrance to the park from Springdale. That said, after a long trip this made... more

What a gorgeous spot to park and explore Zion! You will have gorgeous views and good cellular. You can walk to the visitor center and trails right from the park.

We didn't have any luck securing a spot with our Escape campervan on the next door first come first served campground so we were rather desperate when we pulled into the Watchman which also displayed that it was full. However, luck was in our favor and the ranger gave us a small spot without any hookups and we were over the moon! Beaut... more

“Very nice National Park Campground ”

Reviewed Oct 04, 2018

Overall Rating

50 amp electric. No sewer or water at site. There is a dump as you enter.

Reservations almost a must!

Loop A has paved sites with new patio areas. Loop B has gravel sites. Next time we’ll try for A.

Bathrooms are in very good shape. No showers.

Easy walk to visitor center and town.

When you stay in the campground you are only a short walk to the free shuttle, park store and information center, river and the town of Springdale. Not very many NP campground has electricity but this one does. Loop A has paved sites but Loop B does not. The only reason I mention this is the wind kicks up in the afternoon and blows ... more

“Nice Campground But Closed Bathrooms”

Reviewed Jul 09, 2018

Overall Rating

I booked our spot quite a bit in advance, so we would be close to the facilities. When we got there the closest bathroom was closed. The ranger explained that they had to close some of them because they couldn't get any of the rangers to volunteer to clean them. I'm not sure I would jump at the chance to "volunteer" to clean public res... more

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.

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
