The Bunk House at Zion is run by a delightful couple - Megan and Bob.
It is located a few miles outside the park but it only takes 5-6 minutes to drive to the park entrance. Since cars are not permitted within certain areas of the park itself, one can park at the entrance for free and take the shuttle bus to get to the various sights.
Rockville is a small quiet community with no stores or restaurants. This really doesn't matter as Springdale which is located near the park entrance has plenty to offer. The real benefit is that one doesn't have crowds of tourists walking up and down the street in front of you.
I stayed in one of the two rooms located in the main house. My particular room had a small fridge, counter top and a kitchen sink which was very convenient. It was nicely furnished and extremely clean.
I don't think Megan and Bob will object to me saying that the Bunkhouse at Zion isn't for everyone. The two bedrooms share a bathroom. If you are traveling with a friend and each want your own room, this is a great set-up. Or if you are a couple with a child, this is also very convenient. On the other hand, if two of you are sharing a room and there is another couple whom you don't know in the other bedroom, this could be hard to take if you are both going to be there for several days.
I was traveling on my own and there was nobody in the other room whilst I was there, so this wasn't a problem.
Megan provides a very nice breakfast continental-type breakfast with lots of homemade items. Bob did fried eggs at the weekend but I'm not sure if this is part of the official menu. Bob is a great do-it-yourself kind of guy. He is very knowledgeable and both he and Megan are fun to talk to.
Typically, I would come and go as I pleased. I would usually come back to the Bunkhouse at the end of the day to shower, change and rest up for an hour before heading back into Springdale for supper. Megan and Bob keep busy, so you may not see them until later in the evening.
Megan and Bob have two delightful daschunds, so if you like dogs, you will enjoy their company.
WIFI is available at no charge.
