The sites area really well laid out. Most of the people around us were fairly quite but the sites are fairly close to each other. A little disappointed there was no showers in the park and had to pay $5 for on in the store just outside the gates to the park. Other then that it was a great campground... More

We arrived to Zion late afternoon with no reservations and were almost laughed at by people but our lady luck continued here and we snaffled a cancelled site. Compared to South campground this place feels like organised luxury. It feels like a landscape gardener has designed it. The RV's are separated from the tent sites (which are better) giving it...

Its a reasonably good camp ground for camping inside zion national park. We camped at A14 site. I think it is an RV site but we just had two tents there and it is right besides the river. Only not so great thing was that across the river there were stores and hotels that are actually just outside the NP.... More

The campground accommodates a large number of people quite well. Plenty of available drinking water. reasonably well maintained bathrooms. Wildlife walks through and you'll see more if you're on the periphery (as I was). Stay away from the group camping area as it can be noisy--there was some obnoxious prep school there during my stay and their chaperones were clearly... More

The bathrooms are clean, the camping areas are well kept, and the rangers are on top of noisy people. Depending on where you're located in the campground, the walking distance to the free shuttles isn't very far and the visitors center is right by the entrance! The river is also walking distance from the camp sites. Zion no longer sells... More

Great location, convenient to everything. You can drive in and out quickly to the town outside the park in order to eat, and you can easily walk to the shuttle site to get around inside the park. The bathrooms were clean and well-stocked. I was at a walk-in site, and in case you are nervous about the "walk-in" part -... More

Zion park is the most fabulous of the national parks and camping in the park helps you become one with the fabulous scenery. there is only electric hookup or tent camping but it's worth it to be inside the park. very reasonably priced but you have to make reservations far in advance. the riverside spots are worth the extra couple...

We stayed at Watchman campgound for 3 nights in a pop up camper. We had a site with electric hook up. When we were cold at night and in the early morning we were able to turn on the heat. It warms up by 10 am. I was very impressed with how clean and up to date the bathrooms were.... More

We camped at Watchman Campground in Zion National Park in June 2014. We are avid rustic campers in Michigan, and really looked forward to the experience. First, South and Watchman are both busy. We wanted to stay at South based on Internet comments but it is first come first served, so we reserved online at Watchman just to be sure.... More

I checked the weather 3 days before arriving. I did not think 55/60 at night would be so bad. I was wrong. We wanted to sleep with the top off the tent to view the stars and we froze. The next night was much better. Keep the cover on the tent was the lesson we took away, and extra thick... More
