Camped in Loop F - the walk-in sites. Love these!! Great Views and good size and well-spread out camping sites. There is a common fire pit between every 3 or 4 campsites which makes it fun to meet your neighbors. (Some of the campsites closest to the parking area also have their own fire pit) They do get alot of... More

Very well managed campsite (and park!). The NP definitely does a great job at copping with the huge number of visitors. We had a walk-in site (loop F) which was great to reduce the noise from cars – yet we were only 10 mts away from the parking and could easily reach the car. Beautiful location amongst the cliffs -...

Perhaps it was because we wound up in the RV section of the campground, but we found the facilities building to be really nice in comparison with other park campgrounds. Soap dispensers and hot air hand-dryers are nice features not found in other campgrounds. We had an amazing view of the tall, sandstone peaks and generators are not allowed, so... More

The campground is in the natural park. There a lot of possibilities, take a shuttle just at the entrance, listen a ranger programm at 8.45 PM, take a bath on the river or visit the visitor center just near the campground. There's nice camp places and the price is very low. You could seee wild animals on the camp and... More

We had purchased the National Parks Pass for $80 so the entrance fee of $30 was "pre-paid". We headed straight to the Visitors Center and boarded the shuttle to the North end of the park. The shuttle service in Zion is excellent (besides their need for A/C- TIP: Wear shorts long enough so that your legs don't sweat all over... More

We stayed in 6 different national park campgrounds - from Arches to Mesa Verde to Zion - and I must say that in many ways Watchman was one of my favorites. So why 4 stars - as usual, it's the little things that just come so close and yet... well. Judge for yourself. Watchman is located right at the Zion... More

Grabbed a one night spot here as a staging point to get into south campground in the AM. Reserve early here to get all of your days. Very nice, different crowd than south campground, quieter, more family with kids. Very clean, well maintained

The views are amazing, unlike any you've ever seen. We stayed in F05- which is the walk up sites, even though we booked a long time in advance. The sites are big enough with the parking right by you, no issues there. It's on rocks. No shade, so we moved under the canopy, as it was 105 degrees in mid... More

We can't say enough about this campground. We loved how close it was to the visitor center and the shuttles, and it was great having electrical so we could run the air conditioning in our motorhome. Bathrooms were very clean and there is a nice large sink for doing dishes right outside them. We attended interesting ranger programs at night... More

We visited during the busy summer month of July as part of a cross-country trip and ended up here on the weekend. I am SO glad we booked a campsite inside the park! For starters, parking can be very difficult with an RV and often the lots inside Zion fill up, so having a reserved campsite also reserved us a... More
