Is absolutely great campground. Gorgeous location! Dogs allowed (we had a husky with us; dogs are allowed only on One trail in Zion NP!). Cheap - $18/day with trailer (December 2015 rate). Lots of deer roaming around. No showers, plentiful bathrooms. Loop B, spot 24 - great location. 5 minute walk to a few restaurants, convenience shop, etc.

Our trip details: We stayed for three nights mid-November at site B49. The weather dropped down to the low '30s at night, but with decent sleeping bags and sensible layering of clothes, you'd be just fine. Comfort level: The sites in the B loop are well spaced, so we didn't feel crowded. This was the closest spot I could get... More

We were on D loop, tent camping only. The site was large and had some bushes trees for a hint of privacy. the scenery is beautiful. Bathrooms were about a 2 minute walk. BUT - the area designed to put your tent on is made of large, SHARP rocks!?!? Two problems, you feel the rocks beneath your camp pad...and to... More

Camped in our RV in electric loops during a stretch of one of the hottest temps in the summer. Had 50 amp service, and ran our air conditioners. Tent campers arriving late came pounding on our door late at night complaining about noise. Hey...no restrictions on use of a/c. They complained to camp hosts who correctly explained there were no...

Myself and one friend were lucky to grab the last site available, a walk up tent site, F 17, and were not disappointed. Upon walking up to the site, at our very first introduction to our site 3 deer standing IN the groomed tent area. If that's not showing you a hint of the good times you can have here,... More

Gorgeous campground, lovely views, excellent proximity to the visitor center/shuttles...but the ants...GOOD GOD, THE ANTS. They were ruthless! Ants everywhere...comparatively speaking, the ant problem made the heat seem like a walk in the park (we camped in late June, so hot weather wasn't exactly a surprise - but for that reason, look for a site by the river or with...

We had a really good experience here. Our site was very spacious and comfortable, not too close to neighbors. We were on the B loop, near the river. Bathrooms were close by and very nice (no showers, as I'm sure you know). We did have some noisy camper neighbors the second night, who seemed to be partying at 1:30 a.m,... More

Forget about a normal National Park experience. Watchman Campground is directly across the river from a heavily built-up strip of beer gardens, cocktail lounges and outdoor wedding venues. We had the misfortune of listening to folk musicians on our right trying to drown out the wedding DJ on the left and the rock music at center stage. I will NEVER... More

We had a good stay at Watchman campground. We stayed for 2 nights and it rained heavily on both days. Our campsite ground was level and we did not have any problems with run off water. The bathrooms were very clean and well maintained. Wonderful views from the sites and conveniently located inside the park.

Very nice campsite. We arrived after dark and our campsite number had been left on a noticeboard so it was very easy to find. The view of the mountains when we woke the next morning was great. The site was close to the free park shuttle service. Everything was clean and well serviced. There were no showers in the campground.
