We recently took a school group of 5 chaperones and 24 high school students to Zion Ponderosa Ranch. We all stayed in a 7-bedroom 5-bath house that featured more than enough space for all of us. When we weren't at the national park, the house was a great hangout, and students played foosball, ping pong, cards, and other games. Food...

My husband and I spent a week at a private home in Zion Ponderosa. We stayed in the 4-bedroom 3-bath Esperanza home. On the drive up we counted over 80 dear. In fact we saw deer everyday during our stay. The home had a most amazing view. We had coffee on the deck each morning as we watched the sunrise....

Last summer, I drove my family of 5 from So Cal to Zion National Park. It was sort of last minute, and the only location with available camp sites was the Ponderosa Ranch Resort. The Resort has a variety of accommodations from houses that you can rent, variety of Cabin Styles, wagon tents, down to basic dirt camp ground sites....

Unfortunately, I was in a hurry when I made a reservation for this resort for September 2017. I did quickly read that I could cancel this reservation until August 24, 2017 so I went ahead and made a reservation online. The next day, my family determined that we would be going a different month. I went online to cancel the...

This place looks like it has a lot going on, and it does! It is a great location to get away from the very crowded Zion town/super busy campground. You can hike into Zion via a path north of this property, which is pretty cool, especially if Zion is super crowded! Kind of like sneaking in the back way. You...

Nice place, but quite a distance if you want to do the hikes in the Zion National park. The kids liked the pool. The food in the restaurant was ok, but nothing special. WiFi worked in the wagon which was a nice surprise. The activities seemed expensive and since we wanted to hike, we didn't book any of these.

We're glad you enjoyed the pool and wifi. We are located on the east side of Zion National Park, and while our 4,000 acre property is actually on the boundary of the park, we are seven miles from the east gate of the park via a nice paved road. Many guests enjoy our location away from the crowds, and there...

I don't enjoy writing bad reviews, but after staying at many other great places on our UT trip, I need to tell it like it is... We stayed in a Cabin Suite the week before Christmas. The place was a ghost town. Everything was closed - the restaurants, the hot tub, the front desk. Someone was available via phone, which...

We did not stay at the Ponderosa but went canyoning with them at Birch Hollow. We had a group of 7 and our guide was Eric.

Our canyoneering trips are truly once-in-a-lifetime experiences for many people. Visitors do not need to stay with us to take advantage of our many recreation options such as Jeep tours, ATV tours, horseback riding, zip line, climbing wall, paintball, rifle shooting, and more. Thanks for your review.

Books a cabin but they do not have internet so I had to cancel. I wanted to stay on this ranch but without internet it was not feasible. If they ever put it in their cabins I will stay there in a heart beat because it's beautiful

We rented a lovely, large Vacation Home at Ponderosa for the Thanksgiving week. Overall it was fine, except for quite a few huge cobwebs on the chandeliers and high windows and the basement being very chilly, despite the furnace. There was a lack of drinking glasses, and also no working can opener. The main TV would not run DVDs without...
