We spent four nights. It was a good way to visit Zion. We made our reservations months in advance. Nice restrooms but no showers on the park or water at campsites. Outfitters at Springdale just across footbridge to park offers excellent showers for 4 bucks....More

Most importantly: Book far in advance Unless there's a cancellation, it's difficult to get a spot if you wait until the last minute. We booked 4 months out. Also important: make sure you don't get a walk-in campsite. That's what we had despite booking ahead...More
