The site at Watchman was one of the nicest campsites I have ever stayed at - spacious, backing onto the river, and nice seperation between sites. The bathrooms were nice and clean, although there are no showers. You can get a pay shower in town which is just a short walk. We parked when we arrived and didn't use our...

Stayed here for 5 days-very clean and well-maintained RV sites with electrical hook-ups. We had a site on the Virgin River and enjoyed the sound of the water in the evening. The campground is a short walk to the exit and the town of Springdale, which had some great restaurants and shops with some beautiful art and pottery. The campsite...

Beautiful Park! Watchman is well located and such a cheap way to stay at Zion. Very close to the shuttle to either the park or to Springdale. Washrooms were clean but there are no showers. Also very little shade here. Great view of the mountains all around.

I loved Watchman Campground! We planned on staying in BLM area our first night at Zion but a ranger suggested we check with Watchman just in case. They told us they had a cancellation (campground is reservation only) and could get us a site for the night. It was awesome- our campsite, B loop #17 I believe, had a beautiful...

This was our first time "glamping" and it was wonderful. The campsite was great, the bathrooms were very clean, and the views were amazing!!! We were in Loop B on the inner side but there was a nice trail along the river on the outside. It's inside the Park and only a short walk to the Visitor Center to hop...

This park campground is one of the nicest I have ever stayed at. The sites are nice but close to each other but the views are lovely from every site. The restroom are well maintained but there are no shower facilities in the park. It is an easy walk to the visitor center, trams, and Parus trail. I would stay...

Very very convenient to the park -- within walking distance to the visitor center. Not very private, but the views are outstanding! The campground books up way in advance - but keep checking if it looks booked as we lucked out for a spot. The campground is very large - but has clean facilities (no showers). We hiked the Watchman...

The views are gorgeous, the camp hosts are super nice, and the campsites are divided so you aren't fighting with your neighbors over tent space. Really nice and taken care of. Nice bathrooms too. One of the nicest sites I've gone tent camping at. Free shuttle all day to and from the different homes and sights. We stayed at the...

for some reason many of the reviews are mixed here, but we really enjoyed our stay. We camped (packed our stuff into a regular rental SUV) and the first night stay in loop B at a RV/charging station. This was a nice campground, although we were surrounded by RVs. But it was clean, there was a fire pit, bathrooms nearby....

Amazing campground, with great views and large sites. Only downside was the lack of showers but that didn't bother us too much. Very easy walk to the Springdale Shuttle, was able to lock up our car and explore the town without having to park our big camper van.
