5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed in one of the vacation homes just outside the ranch (booked through the ranch website). We stayed in the Patriach and the cabin was awesome! We had an extremely large family group, so the space and multiple bedrooms of the cabin was ideal for us! The ranch itself has many activities for all to enjoy and can be... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2016

A couple friends had their wedding at the Ponderosa Ranch Resort, so ~20 of my friends rented out a house here for the weekend. The house was really nice and had everything we needed. The breakfast at the main resort was good, and the two pools were a lot of fun. I'd definitely recommend this place if you're looking for... More

This place is better than camping in Zion Park. Less crowded, cooler temperatures, friendly people, pool, spa, showers, laundry and restaurant. We stayed three nights, one night "Glamping" and two nights in the wagons. Glamping is definitely the best. Breakfast is included if you do the glamping, stay in a wagon or one of their tents. If you want to... More

We stayed with an RV for four days in the ranch and had a great time. We loved the free wifi (best wifi we've had in our 3-wk trip!), which made the kids complain less... There are plenty of things to do, and the reservation process is easy. The people at the recreation center were nice and friendly. We did... More

We stayed for a week in one of the vacation homes. If you don't mind ATV's and a sort of rough-hewn feel, this place is awesome. Great but somewhat problematic location, super friendly staff, and quirky amenities. Stock up on supplies in St. George or Kanab, and you'll have a great time. Details follow. It's a great location -- but... More

We stayed in one of the tent sites ($12 a night per person, can't beat that). The sites were large and pretty secluded which was nice. It was a semi-long walk to the bathroom which was a little inconvenient but once we figured out the fastest way to get there it wasn't that bad. The bathrooms and the showers were... More

My family and I were a bit disappointed by this resort. We wanted someplace close to Zion, and this was. Unfortunately, it did not live up to the website. Since we were really there for Zion, we didn't plan on spending much time at the resort, but even so, all the activities are pretty expensive. We had a cabin, which... More

ZionParkUtah, Public Relations Manager at Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort, responded to this review

We appreciate valid critiques and we pay close attention to any concerns, and make efforts to make needed adjustments wherever possible. One thing we might suggest is that our recreation rates are actually quite a bit less expensive than can be found with most outfitters, and we encourage guests to compare for themselves. We also encourage guests to do their... More

We stayed in a Cowboy cabin. There is not much to say about it other than it is a cabin - queen bun beds, a sofa and a chest of drawers are all you get. No mod cons. The cabin felt a bit small so is not great if you plan on spending a lot of time in there. Also... More

Stayed here for 4 nights as part of US tour. Couldn't have found better place. Great location for Zion and access to GC and Bryce. Lots of activities for two teenage boys. Accommodation and food all perfectly OK. Bit rustic but also great value. Loved it and would recommend.

We stayed at the RV site and then in one of the houses. The RV spot was basic. There were many showers near by to use and it had soap in a dispenser to use. Not to be used as shampoo. There were also toilets in the same building and a laundry area. (You pay to use the machines). The... More
