We reserved our site B48 exactly 6 months before out stay. It was a huge site (we are tent campers) and right by the river! How peaceful to fall asleep to the sound of water!!!! The power outlet (meant for RV hookups) was convenient to charge phones and camera batteries! The bathrooms were clean and always stocked with TP and... More

We booked this campground just so we could do some canyoneering the next day. It was perfect for one night but looked super boring if you were going to stay for a while. That is just me but I like to be out there and not right next to so many people but for what we were doing it was... More

I booked our campsite 6 month in advance and didn't know what we were expecting. Next time we stay I would book our site near the river! It was HOT in Zion in June. We stayed in Loop B for 3 nights. The grounds are clean and everyone was very respectful and friendly. There was an adorable & friendly camp... More

Watchman Campground is one of the nicer of the large campgrounds I've visited. The sites are very well maintained. The bathrooms are nice. The location is super convenient and scenic. Not only are your close to the shuttle stop, but it's just a few minutes walk to town if you need to use an outfitter.

the camp ground is right at the beginning of the formations that make up both sides of the canyon. Well managed, very friendly and supportive staff. Supper convenient. It fills up fast, make reservations early.

Sites were clean and level. Bathrooms were busy and average. Views of Watchman and surrounding mountains were incredible. Could use more shade and privacy. Walking distance to the visitors center and shuttles. Great value

Our entire group which included several generations, including young children, had an incredible time at this park. There are trails available for all different hiking difficulty levels, and they are clearly marked. The shuttle service was incredible, the bus drivers were so helpful and friendly. Everything about our stay here was wonderful. Make sure to bring your swimsuits to take... More

The only drawback was that it was very windy at night. We stayed there for three nights on memorial weekend and on all three nights it was very windy. Our tent was shaking the whole night. Other than that, its is one of the best campgrounds - excellent views, hikes, access to Virgin river, clean, organized, clean restrooms, very close... More

Second time and kids really enjoy it. They ride their scooters around with no worries. We enjoy the hikes. With the visitor center near, it doesn't interfere with our camping. One thing I wish they had was showers but having a RV helps especially with them dirty little ones! Also carry ant spray. Otherwise we can't wait to go back.

This was our first experience in an RV park and we were pleased with the quality of the installations in Zion National Park. The sites are fairly close together but the views we had were great. They have electrical hookups only (I believe). There is a dump and water filling station nearby. No showers in the park but your OK... More
