We've been to Yosemite many times and have loved it. We weren't expecting to find an even more impressive canyon at Zion. The individual trails are well-marked. The Visitor Centers are well stocked with a wide variety of gifts and books and helpful rangers. The Canyon was especially beautiful b/c of the fall colors in mid-November.

Of all of the arks in and near Southern Utah, Zion is by far my favorite. You drive down into the canyon so you are surrounded by spectacular hoodoos and rose to red colored walls of stone. The canyon has hundreds of different moods depending on the time of day, time of year and weather. Every time you go, you... More

The vastness and height of the canyon walls are amazing. it is awesome and totally different from other canyons such as Bryce or the Grand Canyon. Do not miss this one off your list you will not be disappointed.

Zion National Park is a treasure with good nature & visitors' center, hikes from easy (drop down a few steps to the river & read a book) to challenging (Angels Landing, narrow trail with steep dropoffs) plus back country overnights. During high season visitors are required to park & use their frequent shuttle service in the main canyon: it works,... More

If you are lucky and walk out here and get a nice quiet spot and no one else is around since they are all at the hiking trails or on the road etc you are one lucky person. Thats exactly what we were able to do to get away from the people and have a snack on a log and... More

We stayed next to a river in a tent. It was very fun and beautiful. The good things about the park were that there was a movie theater and there was rafting. The bad things about the park were there were a lot of ants, it was really hot and there were rattlesnakes, but I didn't see any.

One of my favorite natl. parks, loved the hiking! Stayed in campground w/o elec. wonderful campground hosts in Sept. Only down side was how busy this park is. We were lucky to even get a camping spot and you are never alone on a trail. Still we will return!!!

Zion rightly gets so many visitors as it is a beautiful place. The place is well organised but it does have a parking problem on weekends and the summer season. The bus service to the Canyon is excellent and frequent.Go right to the end and do the river walk. A great place and not far from ST George and Cedar... More

We love the entire park. It is spectacular. But, our favorite experience there was hiking the Narrows of the Virgin River. We were outfitted with the proper walk shoes and gear in Springdale and spent almost an entire day exploring the canyon in and out of the water, somethings almost waist deep. The scenery is awesome, especially when you are... More
