Went for three nights of camping. Best camping resort ever! A multitude of very clean bathrooms and showers. I never waited once. Beautiful pool that my girlfriend and I swam in daily. Such a pleasant and friendly atmosphere. I found the campsites to be very large well kept. Only complaint was no fire ring. Just a grilling station. But that... More

We first stayed at a cute cowboy cabin. Going out to another spot to shower/toilet wasn't as bad as I thought! Then we upgraded to one of the vacation home rentals! Wow!! What a great thing to do. I highly suggest this resort for its hospitality and different choices of accommodations- from the very rustic tenting to the exquisite vacation... More

Great place to take a family and they have a variety of options, depending on what you budget is, form really nice little cabins to inexpensive camping options. Nice pool and spa and a variety of evening activities. So nice that we decide to stay an extra day!

My bf and I were on a hiking trip out west and decided to stay here for 5 nights (Mon-Fri) while we were visiting Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon. Overall it wasn't that bad! As a family ranch resort, you do have to keep in mind that there will be a lot of kids everywhere (we are in our... More

We chose to stay at the Zion Ponderosa Ranch because the campsites within the national park were all full. We reserved a campsite in advance, but we did not arrive to the ranch until around 10pm. The staff at the front desk was very friendly, especially a girl named Jackie. Nevertheless, we were sorely disappointed by the accommodations. We were... More

If I knew then what I knew now, I don't think I would choose lodging at Zion Ponderosa Ranch again. First, if you are travelling west to east, it would be much more convenient to stay in the quaint looking town of Springdale. You have to pass through Zion National Park to get to the Ranch, which is a BEAUTIFUL... More

Stayed 3 nights while exploring Zion NP. Lots of on-site activities, but pretty expensive so we just stuck to the National Park. It takes about 45 minutes to drive the 20 miles to the Park Headquarters where you can then catch the shuttle to other points in the park. We stayed in a nice cabin that slept our family of... More

We were happy to have stayed here even if it was just to pass through for one night. Stayed in a Wagon which was cute but hot in July. The pool area and shower house was great and clean. The recreation activities had good set of options and prices. The continental breakfast that now comes with the Wagons was by... More

We checked in only to find that we were placed in overflow camping. This did not guarantee any of the amenities of a regular campsite. When we complained about not being notified of the problem, the management divided existing campsites between different groups forcing campers to share grills and picnic tables. It took management over half an hour to direct... More

We lucked out with this place. About a 40 minute drive from Springdale, Utah through Zion National Park one of the most beautiful drives you will ever experience. This is a complete outdoor family friendly resort. We were one of the first campers to check-in and general manager Michael gave us a great campsite. He asked us what type of... More
