I've never stayed there, but I wouldn't expect anything fancy. Duck Creek Village is pretty rustic and will probably be overrun with ATVrs. What type of suggestions are you looking for?

Duck Creek Village is more a forest camp. I would stay there if that is what I wanted with the added bonus of being able to take a day trip to the the two parks thrown in.

If what you want is to visit the parks and are just staying somewhere between the two then it is not as convenient.

Kbecjeans has alluded to the advice always given here. If your priority is to visit the parks, you would be better off staying at each park. Choose Springdale for Zion and Rubys Inn for Bryce. Commuting to each park takes too much time. More importantly, it will mean that you will likely miss sunset, sunrise and the night skies at the parks. These times of day are equally as dramatic and significant as daylight in your park visits. Driving in the darkness is discouraged.

I agree with the above. I rented a house in the village. Amazing house for the price. If you still plan on Pinewoods Resort and you are looking at paying over $200 a night I'd give renting a house a look. You can find a nice 1 bedroom for $150 and a 3 bedroom for around $250 with all the amenities of home. Most are a 2 night minimum. But keep in mind that it's a about 1.25 hours each way to Zion and Bryce. Also driving after dark on Route 14 is dangerous. Tons of deer on the sides of the road. TONS! Longer drive time at night and very nerve-racking. And if you want to talk about dark, try this road on a moonless night. Not fun at all. Bryce has one of the darkest night skies in the country which is great for star gazing,especially on a moonless night. Natural Bridges NM was ranked as the number one dark sky spot in the continental US, for what it's worth.

This coming trip I plan on hopping from park to park, spending at least 2 nights NEAR each. Also there is pretty much nothing in Duck Creek Village. I recall the nearest gas station being over 30 minutes away in Alton. Cedar Breaks is close by but I wouldn't spend more than an hour, driving by & stopping at a few viewpoints for photos.
