FYI Two years ago ALL the parking spots in the park were FULL by 10:00 AM.


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

We always stay at the Watchman CG inside the park adjacent the visitors center and the shuttle station. This will require making reservations well in advance though you can sometimes get in at the last minute due to cancelations. It is a very nice CG right on the Virgin River and while they do not have "full" hookups they do have 30 amps, flush toilets and water spigots throughout the CG and no, you cannot fill your tanks in the CG, leave the "water thief" at home" and utilize the dump station facilities, a full service two lane inside the CG.

The fees are reasonable {a geezer card will get you in for half price}, especially compared to the commercial RV parks nearby that are outrageously priced 365. Being able to just walk to the shuttles and then ride anywhere in the park is priceless. If you have to drive in get ready for a long expensive wait and parking in the park itself disappears quickly during the busier months and driving up into the park is restricted to outright prohibited for much of the year.

Zion is amazing, probably my favorite NP but it is so much better when you stay at Watchman.

As always... opinions and YMMV.

I agree with the Zion River Resort recommendation. As nice as any RV resort we've stayed in. Right on the Virgin River. It is a short drive away from the entrance in Springdale. Cell phone signal is spotty in this area, but they had a booster in the RV store that you can use (one person at a time) to make calls, if that kind of thing is important to you.

As for the parking in Zion NP, get there early, park in the lots near the entrance and take the buses that run through the park. They drop you off at the sites and the trailheads for hikes.

We were there for a week last August. I couldn't get the time off work, but my wife and kids wanted a vacation. I stayed in the RV and worked the whole week. The cell signal was great for us. I had a good connection to my office the whole time, and we streamed video in the evening.

ZRRV is one of the best places we've ever seen. It's our family's favorite.

It appears that the cell service has been improved. Not surprising. It has been 7 years since we were there.
