Discover Zion National Park

Zion National Park welcomes more than four million visitors each year, and it’s not hard to see why. Located just north of Springdale in the southwestern corner of Utah, this iconic national park should be on every RV traveler’s bucket list.

Boasting an ancient landscape of vibrant, soaring sandstone cliffs, Zion National Park looks like something out of a movie. It offers breathtaking scenery, a diverse range of flora and fauna, and enough recreational opportunities to satisfy any outdoor adventurer. From canyoneering and kayaking to bird watching and stargazing, there’s plenty to see, do, and explore in this wonderful park.

Whatever sort of adventure you’re planning, find an RV rental near Zion National Park and then hit the road.

Getting Outdoors

The headline feature of this 229-square-mile park is, without a doubt, Zion Canyon. Stretching for 15 miles and reaching depths of more than 2,600 feet, it’s one of those rare natural attractions for which words simply don’t do justice. From the harsh desert landscape to the vivid colors of the sandstone cliffs, you’ll be reaching for your camera every chance you get.

But how can you experience the best that Zion National Park has to offer? Hiking is an excellent place to start, and there are myriad trails to suit a variety of fitness levels. The most popular trails are in Zion Canyon itself, such as the very strenuous “bottom-up Narrows.” The Narrows is the canyon’s skinniest section, in some places just 20 feet wide but with walls rising 1,000 feet either side. Alternatively, if you’re traveling with a pet, you might like to take your leashed dog on the Pa’rus Trail.

For the adventure junkies out there, Zion National Park is heaven on Earth for big-wall rock climbers. In fact, climbers from all over the world are drawn to the park’s 2,000-foot cliffs, with the imposing challenges of Angel’s Landing and Moonlight Buttress two particular favorites.

But if you’d rather take things a little easier during your Zion National Park RV camping adventure, why not try your luck at some birding? An astonishing 291 species of birds call this park home, including peregrine falcons and bald eagles, so grab a copy of the official Zion Bird List and keep your eyes peeled.

Camping at Zion National Park

If you want to go camping with an RV in Zion National Park, book an RV in Washington County. There are three campgrounds available, with the two main options – South Campground and Watchman Campground – found in Zion Canyon near the park’s southern entrance.

South Campground offers 117 campsites in a desert section of the park. Situated along the banks of the Virgin River, it’s a popular spot and fills up quickly during peak seasons, but reservations can be made up to two weeks in advance. There are no hookups available in this Zion National Park RV campground, but there is a dump station with potable water.

Watchman Campground sits a quarter-mile from the park’s southern entrance and offers 176 tent and RV campsites all year round. It’s also located alongside the Virgin River and usually requires a reservation from March through November. However, please note that only electric hookups are available, and some sites are for tents only.

The third Zion National Park RV camping option is the Lava Point Campground, which is located approximately one hour away from the other campgrounds on the Kolob Terrace Road. Open from May to September (weather permitting), Lava Point offers six primitive campsites on a first come, first served basis. However, please note that water isn’t available in the campground, and vehicles longer than 19 feet are prohibited on the access road.

Exploring the Area

There’s literally so much to see and do in Zion National Park that you may not have time to experience everything you want. For example, the Virgin River is a popular spot with kayakers, and traversing The Narrows provides a rewarding challenge for experienced paddlers. For keen photographers, a hike along the one-mile Canyon Overlook Trail will treat you to spectacular views.

While you’re camping at Zion National Park, take the time to venture off the beaten track. Some 124,000 acres of the park is designated as wilderness, offering the ideal spot to escape the crowds and reconnect with nature.

The Kolob Canyons are a perfect example of this. Found 40 miles north of Zion Canyon in the park’s northwestern corner, the canyons offer peace and tranquility in remarkable desert surrounds. Trickling streams, hidden waterfalls, and more than 20 miles of hiking trails await avid adventurers.

And once your RV rental adventure in Zion National Park has come to an end, there are plenty of other great attractions nearby. For example, you might want to cast your eye over more beautiful natural scenery at Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, or the striking landscape of Snow Canyon State Park. Or, if you’re seeking civilization, the bright lights of Las Vegas are only two and a half hours away. Where you go next is entirely up to you.
