My family rented Zion's Edge 8/23-8/24. I have five children ages 6-17. My daughter found a used condom in a bedroom closet! And we were charged $590 per night! In addition, one shower was broken, the shower head was spurting water everywhere and the toilet in that bathroom didn't stop running so that bathroom couldn't be used. The lighting in... More

We rented a deluxe cabin here which was clean and comfortable. The location is very remote with one good restaurant. This would be a great place for an overnight or short weekend, but longer stays would require more dining options and more creature comforts of civilization.

We found this place randomly and loved the wild and beautiful side of it. Warm welcoming by the owner Michael and his daugter. The cheapest place we found (26 dollars to put a tent) but the best one! Horses, great restaurant, amazing swimming pool and jacuzzi. We loved it my friends and me. I recommend it 100%

Our family stayed in one of the vacations homes associated with this property. Here are a few thoughts, most of which are not positive: House: Well built and spacious. However 11 of the 'sleeps 19' spaces are on various hide-a-bed sofas, including one in the middle of the living room. Most of these were very worn, and if you used... More

We stayed at one of the tent sites in Zion Ponderosa, and we had the most amazing service. The manager of the resort came by and helped us start a fire, and he was very personable and a good guy. The pool was awesome and they had a fun slide, and the rest of the amenities were so fun as... More

I was curious when I learned that we were going to have a family reunion at a resort but it was in a desert. I was excited when we pulled up to see that we have many comforts that you normal get when at a hotel yet we were so close to Zion National Park. It was a great place... More

We rented a beautiful 3 bedroom cabin on our 5 day stay at Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort. It was the absolute perfect place to bring my family for summer vacation!!! The larger cabins have a separate entrance with very little traffic which we loved! The gift shop was stocked with gifts and food items & everything was fairly priced. My... More

Zion Ponderosa is a gem. Located just outside Zion National Park, it's higher altitude offers cooler temps during the summer months. I saw a bunch of reviews that complained about the distance to downtown, or uneven tent sides, but opted to give the place a shot anyway. I guess it's all about expectations. I have no complaints. Springdale is a... More

We stayed here 3 days in middle of a 2 week tour! We had one of the cowboy wagons! Comfy beds but small space if you fill all beds! All facilities well equipped and maintained, horse trail was very easy going if you fancy it! Swimming pool was awesome, colder at top then bottom one but two great Jacuzzi s!... More
