Our family of 4 stayed early August in one of the cabins. The cabin itself was charming and spacious with a bunk bed in the bedroom and a pull out sofa in the living room. The bathroom was clean and good enough for us. A fridge, microwave, tv and outdoor grill were convenient. Everything was ready for us when we... More

The cabin suites are nice, clean, and cozy! Lisa the trail guide for the horse ride was wonderful. Continental breakfast much better than expected. Customer service above and beyond what we expected. Many fun activities to do on site after a day of exploring. Would have given five stars if the the roof had kept the animal noises out during... More

A friend and I booked a long weekend in Zion and stayed in one of the Cowboy Cabins at the Zion Ponderosa Ranch. Amenities were basic but just as they're described on the website: the cabin had a doublewide bunk bed and a couch, and was close to the toilet/shower/pool area. The hot tub was a great place to relax... More

We stayed for a week in one of the vacation homes, a lovely 3 bedroom house with spa baths, great deck area, nicely furnished. A couple of minor points - the house was advertised to sleep 9 people but there was only a small table for 4 on the decking area, so a large family or reunion party might have... More

Spacious cabins, lovely site, and very much a family atmosphere. Living room space to lounge in, miniature golf and pool, casual café for a meal. A little pricey, but not if you buy your own food and "eat in." Don't count on Wifi service, however.

This is a very nice campground/RD resort. It's about 7 miles from the east gate to Zion National Park. 2.5 miles east if the park entrance to the turnoff of HEY 9. The staff is very nice and helpful. There are lots of activities available. We were car camping. Pools are very nice. We will be back for a longer... More

My friend and I decided to stay at Zion Ponderosa because the lodge in the park was full and we wanted a place with a cabin and an outdoor/rustic feel to it, but still have some amenities. We stayed in a charming cowboy cabin that had full size bunk beds. The bathrooms/showers were a one minute walk away, and I... More

Kitchen was clean and has most tools you would need. Gas stove and decent microwave. Outside table and patio chairs were new and comfy. Bathroom has separate... More

Over price on everything from gift shop, recreation activities, and specially the restaurant. Room was small, smelly, and hot. Cars and golf carts driving through out the night. Paid in advance for the room, and when we arrived the room was not ready for the check-in time was told to come back from 4 to 6pm. The cooks or chef... More
