Canyon walls stand proud and tall, surrounding Zion Lodge on all sides. If you’re interested in hiking Zion, there’s only one choice of accommodation - either you’re IN the canyon, or you’re not, and this lodge was our absolute favourite of all that we visited during our tour of the big parks. It’s a stones throw from some of the most beautiful walks on the planet, quiet and calm, with only the sound of passing shuttle buses breaking the silence, as the park is not open to any other traffic. The wildlife have few predators, and are not troubled by humans, so it was great to share both our walks and rest times with deer, chipmunks and other four-legged visitors.
The timber structures have two floors and the rooms, though fairly simply furnished, are cosy and comfortable (great beds!), with fabulous views from the balconies. We weren't troubled by any noise at all during the night.
The restaurant can be very busy, and making a reservation is recommended. The first time we visited we had to wait a while for a table to become available, but it was worth it - good wholesome food very reasonably priced.
Throughout the park the level of service from members of staff was exemplary (I think the concierge at Zion was the first person we promised ‘We’ll be back’!). Rangers are very happy to help plan your walks and ensure that you see as much as possibly during your stay, and restaurant staff are warm, friendly and welcoming.
The (free) park guide contains information about all the available hikes, the endurance level, and approximate walking times, and we packed as much as we possibly could in to our stay - but will certainly be returning for more (indeed, the Lodge is already booked for May 2014!).
Natural spring water is available free from a number of points in the Canyon, which is very useful if you are planning to do a lot of hiking, and the shuttle bus (also free) passes every 15 minutes or so to transport you to the various trails.
We can’t wait to revisit Zion. A gorgeous lodge in a beautiful location. Stunning!
