4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

Staff was very gracious, friendly, and helpful. Manager Mike made his presence known, and was helpful in helping plan hikes and activities in the area. It's not the closest place to stay near the park, but the price for a campsite and amenities were good. Laundry, pool, clean bathrooms, and free clean showers. Campsites were not well defined, the first... More

Nearly Perfect. Oriented to families. Good mix of cabin and camping site, mini golf, swimming and lots of nearby outdoor recreation. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Had Dining area with decent food. Breakfast was way overpriced. Bring your own.

We decided to camp here for several nights instead of BLM on land during a week long canyoneering trip. It was a great alternative to searching out BLM land to camp on and had good amenities since the ladies in our group insisted that we needed showers :(. As many other have mentioned, it can be a loud but if... More

We spent a week in one of the vacation homes and loved it! The best things: resort activities (canyoneering, sunset jeep tour, mini golf, atvs, swimming pool, zipline), the house had laundry, located about 15/20 min from Zion NP east entrance. To get to the rec barn from our home, we usually drove and parked in the main lot but... More

We came here by default. We stayed in the most "deluxe" cabins (with a private cabin). Our cabin was clean and the bed comfortable. The grounds were very tired. The dining room left much to be desired. The server told us was that they were having water problems after we ordered water to drink. It was very hot in there... More

well the place has 2.5 stars so i guess we weren't the only ones unimpressed. some comments: - wifi does not reach to all the buildings. was unworkable for us. - general feeling of uncleanliness and feels that it does not get a thorough cleaning after a guest leaves and that uncleanliness compounds. place needs to be wiped down and...

This was a great place for our family reunion! Michael Kane was Mr. Hospitality! He quickly resolved what could have been a difficult situation for us. Thank you! We had 70 people at our family reunion at Zion Ponderosa Ranch. We chose the resort after a lot of research. Each individual family group chose accommodations according to their budget and... More

This was our first visit to Zion and I'm so thankful we chose this place after reading a lot of good reviews. Of course there will always be some people who will find anything to complain about when you read through some of the not so great reviews. Its hard to satisfy everyone. My boyfriend and I stayed in a... More

This isn't a great place to stay if you are serious about getting out in the park and doing extensive hiking, it is about a 45 mins drive to the visitors center and on both nights we stayed there the noise levels were unacceptable. They also doubled(and tripled) campers up on campsites, my in laws came back one afternoon to... More

Zion Ponderosa is the ideal location for hiking the Narrows top down and doing various hikes on the East Rim Trail. Hiking the Narrows top down - they have a shuttle service that would bring you to Chamberlain's Ranch (you choose the time) and come get you at the visitor's center when you're done (they will wait for you, if...
