for some reason many of the reviews are mixed here, but we really enjoyed our stay. We camped (packed our stuff into a regular rental SUV) and the first night stay in loop B at a RV/charging station. This was a nice campground, although we were surrounded by RVs. But it was clean, there was a fire pit, bathrooms nearby....

Amazing campground, with great views and large sites. Only downside was the lack of showers but that didn't bother us too much. Very easy walk to the Springdale Shuttle, was able to lock up our car and explore the town without having to park our big camper van.

Cool campground right near the south entrance. Campground was almost full when I booked, so book early. Try and get near the river, we were a little far from it. The NP visitor center was close by and there were buses to take us into the canyon. Would definitely stay again.

Book early! Nice campground inside of Zion National Park. Went for spring break so it was booked full. Lots of people, but it didn't bother me so much. Not a whole lot of shade. Bathrooms are very nice with flush toilets, heating, and running water. There is also a dishwashing station at each bathroom. This campground is about a 5...

Flat, large sites with a new bathroom and place to clean dishes. There is just one sink at the bathroom to clean dishes so you might have to wait in a line if you hit it at peak dinner clean up time. There are trees for shade. The campground is located close to the visitor center and shuttle. Sites fill...

We were lucky to get reservations next to the river for labor day. Every morning I would get up and try to get a spot next to the river and with luck we did. You can't make reservations outside of six moths so every morning I would be at the computer trying at 7AM pacific time once the reservation window...

Glad we made our reservations early! (About 3.5 months) At that time it was almost filled already. The campground was nice and spacious. We had a picnic table and fire pit. Bathrooms were very clean. Enjoy!

This was the best campsite I have ever seen for groups! Very clean, plenty of space for tents, covered tables and very clean bathrooms. The trip was my first to Zion and everything was just perfect. The hikes, the shuttle that took you to the trailheads and the Zion Outfitters had everything you needed if you forgot gear..plus you could...

It was nice to have immediate access to bathroom, dishwashing, and garbage facilities as well as have the visitor's center and shuttle in walking distance. It was a little crowded, but every site had a reasonable amount of space. The one large issue I had was that quiet hours were seemingly not enforced. I was struggling to fall asleep at...
