Originally, we were planning to spend four nights at Watchman Campground in Zion (pending reservations) before continuing on with our road trip to the north. We were going to do a day trip to Bryce. I am now second guessing that decision and wondering if it would be worth the added work to pack up our stuff and move to a new campground (North) for one night instead of just visiting for the day?
It takes us about an hour to pack up and about 2 hours to set up, so it would add 3 hours of "work" to our plans, plus the tunnel and slower drive time. For those of you that have camped at North, do you feel it is worth the added effort to move to a new campground for just one night?
We will have a toddler with us to we will not be able to hike too much. We do have bikes and a bike trailer for the kid.
Our itinerary looks like this:
(Labor Day Weekend)
Friday: Arrive at Watchman Campground (early afternoon)
Saturday: Watchman Campground (explore Zion)
Sunday: (arrive at North Campground?) (explore Zion a 2nd day?) (Zion early morning then move to North in the afternoon?)
Monday: Either day trip to Bryce or explore Bryce
Tuesday: Depart and head to Idaho
