Very nice camping resort close to Zion National Park. Super clean and well maintained. Nice camping store on site. Pool and hottub look very inviting however we were so busy hiking in Zion that we had little time for the amenities. Only complaint we had was there weren't many washer/dryers to accomodate all their residents. I had to go to... More

Nice RV Resort butted up against two rivers. Spent 3 nights here. Place has high occupancy but wasn't full. They offer sites from tents up to big busses. Restroom facilities are nice. Ignore the complaints about the showers having a limit, this place is in a desert and water is limited. Staff friendly. Activities offered through the month.

On our 1st night there, they had only a back-in site available. We arrived at dusk with my wife driving and this was her 1st attempt at backing into a site. Our neighbor and I got her in with minimum fuss. The site was gravel but dead level. Sewer connection at ground level, electric was waist high on a panel... More

Thank you for staying with us! We do have an ADA bathroom/shower located in the laundry building. Our restrooms are 16 years old but you really can't tell as we did a complete remodel last winter and they look fabulous! Our pull thrus are 30 feet between each pedestal and the back-ins are 25 feet between each pedestal. We also... More

Recently stay at this rv park and would recommend we arrived a day late due to vehicle trouble and they did not charge us for the night we missed even though we said we would pay.

We stayed at Zion River Campground as part of a " grand" tour of Utah's National Parks The campground is clean,modern and very well run. There's a swimming pool and a community/ social area with bar-b-q's. Sites are probably a little close to each other. Each site has a picnic table and a fire pit. The real bonus of the... More

Thank you for staying at our resort. We do run a private shuttle leaving at 9 am and picking up at 3pm at $7 per person plus tax while Zion is running their shuttle system. It does help with avoiding the hassle of parking and the shuttle cues in Springdale. When the park was built 16 years ago the bathrooms/showers... More

This RV Park is 13 miles from Springdale. It's nice to avoid the crowding of the town, but add a few minutes to get back and forth to Zion NP.The RV spaces are among the closest we've had during our RV days, but the park is nicely spaced with trees. The shower, laundry was clean nearby. The campground has social... More

We do enjoy being out of the crowds of Sprigdale. It will take a guest 15-20 minutes to reach Springdale and Zion National Park from our resort. Our back-in sites are on pea gravel and each site is 25 feet between each pedestal. The pull thrus are on cement slabs with grass areas and are 30 feet between each pedestal.... More

This is the absolute best resort in the west. We love it here and we will always return. My husband and I are a bit of loners doing our own thing, but it's really hard not to find a friendly person here. Everyone from staff to the people who stay here are very kind.

We stayed here for two nights with no complaints. It's about 20 minutes from Zion national Park. They have free coffee and it doesn't taste bad either.

We decided to go full on ''Glamping'' mode while at Zion because who doesn't like to combine the experience of camping with a little glamor?
