We stayed at Zion River Resort the weekend before Halloween and absolutely loved it here. The grounds are immaculate, amenities are over the top, and the staff was so friendly and helpful. After our 3 night stay, we agreed that we would definitely be back and couldn't say enough great things about our time here. As we packed up to head home, I went to start my truck and the dreaded happened -- the truck wouldn't start.

If I could, I would rate this place 10-stars because when I was stranded in Utah on a Sunday (when nothing is open), the staff at Zion River Resort went out of their way to help me. After troubleshooting the truck issue and realizing that my batteries were dead, one of their workers drove me to/from the nearest Walmart to do the exchange AND helped me with the install. Ryan helped get me back on the road and I couldn't be more grateful for his help. Thank you and I'm looking forward to heading up there again soon!

we have stayed here multiple times in our 5th wheel and have never been disappointed. the staff are always helpful and knowledgeable about the local area. the park is quiet at night, mostly because of a security guard who patrols. the sites are level which is really nice late at night when arriving. site 33 is barely big enough for a 35' long trailer, even though its listed as a 42' site. you will have to back out while trying to avoid a very large rock. recently they changed the practice of pay showers (always something that bothered me as sites are $50-60/nite).

We enjoyed our stay here. Very clean and well maintained. If you opt for the "river" sites, keep in mind they are more expensive and you can't really see the river, as there is a retaining wall. Very helpful staff!

Grass by laundry full of dog poo tho. Looks like its been there awhile. Rest of park is beautiful & maintained well. Pretty hot right now but that's not their doing. River is muddy but that may be due to recent rains.

The "campground" was pretty nice, though the sites are tiny and way too close together. Bathrooms are very clean and nice. The problem was that on our last day, before we got back home, our campsite was robbed. They stole a bunch of our cookware and a very expensive coffee press. But that wasn't really even the worst part! Our nearest neighbors, about five sites down, saw the whole thing happen- not too long after dark. They assumed the people who were at our site belonged there, as they spent some time there and weren't in any rush to get in and out. They told us what time they came in, described the vehicle and the number of people. The next morning, we told the assistant manager. She said she would talk to the manager. After waiting for him to stop by for 45 minutes, we went back to the office. She said that the manager had looked at the security camera tape and no such vehicle came in when the neighbors said. She also said that he said that the Washington Co. Sheriff will not come to take a report for under $350 of lost goods. Not true. Basically, management just wanted us to shut up and go away. Would I recommend this place to a friend? ABSOLUTELY NOT! Too bad- the place itself was nice. The people running it- not at all.

I spent four nights at the Zion River Resort with a youth group. We were in the tent portion of the campground which is all gravel. Fortunately, we all had cots or good sleeping pads and so the gravel was not an issue. The young men I was with enjoyed the basketball hoop, swimming pool and game room. The management and staff were very gracious and worked hard to accomodate the needs of our group.

Great management, beautiful setting, close to Zion. Originally wanted a river front site, but they were full. Really very happy with our pull thru site and would request one again. Nice wide, grassy sites with shade. Clean restrooms/showers. The staff here is amazing. VERY friendly and helpful. They have a pet sitting service, which we used and were extremely pleased. Looking forward to returning, maybe in the fall when it isn't so hot ! Would recommend Zion River Resort 100% !
