I have stayed in this campground every March for the past 5 years because it is accessible when others are not in my area at this time of year. Love it, always look forward to getting out after a long winter but this is not quiet. Springdale, Utah is just across the river. Every year the hotels and RV spots...

There are two campgrounds, Watchman with 180 spaces, and South with 126. It is early in the season but both campgrounds were filled. We parked at the Quality Inn a mile outside the park and got a river view for $44. The surrounding retail area is awesome and mighty ritzy. It has western structures that compete well with the magnificent...

Despite heavy rain and lightning at night, it is an excellent place to camp in this national park. I got to see deer roaming the area and one was an adult deer. I book months in advance through the website of recreation.gov, it was an easy process and that I do not live in the United States. You have to...

Is absolutely great campground. Gorgeous location! Dogs allowed (we had a husky with us; dogs are allowed only on One trail in Zion NP!). Cheap - $18/day with trailer (December 2015 rate). Lots of deer roaming around. No showers, plentiful bathrooms. Loop B, spot 24 - great location. 5 minute walk to a few restaurants, convenience shop, etc.

Our trip details: We stayed for three nights mid-November at site B49. The weather dropped down to the low '30s at night, but with decent sleeping bags and sensible layering of clothes, you'd be just fine. Comfort level: The sites in the B loop are well spaced, so we didn't feel crowded. This was the closest spot I could get...

We were on D loop, tent camping only. The site was large and had some bushes trees for a hint of privacy. the scenery is beautiful. Bathrooms were about a 2 minute walk. BUT - the area designed to put your tent on is made of large, SHARP rocks!?!? Two problems, you feel the rocks beneath your camp pad...and to...

Camped in our RV in electric loops during a stretch of one of the hottest temps in the summer. Had 50 amp service, and ran our air conditioners. Tent campers arriving late came pounding on our door late at night complaining about noise. Hey...no restrictions on use of a/c. They complained to camp hosts who correctly explained there were no...

Myself and one friend were lucky to grab the last site available, a walk up tent site, F 17, and were not disappointed. Upon walking up to the site, at our very first introduction to our site 3 deer standing IN the groomed tent area. If that's not showing you a hint of the good times you can have here,...

Gorgeous campground, lovely views, excellent proximity to the visitor center/shuttles...but the ants...GOOD GOD, THE ANTS. They were ruthless! Ants everywhere...comparatively speaking, the ant problem made the heat seem like a walk in the park (we camped in late June, so hot weather wasn't exactly a surprise - but for that reason, look for a site by the river or with...

We had a really good experience here. Our site was very spacious and comfortable, not too close to neighbors. We were on the B loop, near the river. Bathrooms were close by and very nice (no showers, as I'm sure you know). We did have some noisy camper neighbors the second night, who seemed to be partying at 1:30 a.m,...
