We were lucky to get reservations next to the river for labor day. Every morning I would get up and try to get a spot next to the river and with luck we did. You can't make reservations outside of six moths so every morning I would be at the computer trying at 7AM pacific time once the reservation window...

Glad we made our reservations early! (About 3.5 months) At that time it was almost filled already. The campground was nice and spacious. We had a picnic table and fire pit. Bathrooms were very clean. Enjoy!

This was the best campsite I have ever seen for groups! Very clean, plenty of space for tents, covered tables and very clean bathrooms. The trip was my first to Zion and everything was just perfect. The hikes, the shuttle that took you to the trailheads and the Zion Outfitters had everything you needed if you forgot gear..plus you could...

It was nice to have immediate access to bathroom, dishwashing, and garbage facilities as well as have the visitor's center and shuttle in walking distance. It was a little crowded, but every site had a reasonable amount of space. The one large issue I had was that quiet hours were seemingly not enforced. I was struggling to fall asleep at...

Amazing campground located right in Zion NP. Only stayed here one night but it was one of the best camping experiences I have ever had. The campsite was setup great, the temperature was perfect, the fire was roaring, the mountains that surrounded us were amazing, and we experienced complete relaxation!!! Yeah the campground was a little busy and there were...

What an amazing campground! In the middle of Zion and so close to all the attractions/activities. After a day of walking at the Angle’s landing and going to the Narrows, this was the perfect place to relax. As soon as we got there we made the barbecue ready to go for our food. The sun was still shining and there...

This campground is outstanding. precious location in the middle of the park. Even if it was super busy, everything was clean and fresh. We strongly recommend to arrive before 7am if you haven't booked your spot in advance. But dont panic, the view is amazing while you wait, a treat to watch the sunrise.

Spent three nights in late October at site F13 at the Watchman Campground at Zion. My friend and I were a bit light on the usual car camping amenities since we had both flown into Las Vegas from Florida/North Carolina, and were limited on what we could carry. Still, we had a spacious six-person REI tent with full rainfly, decent...

Camped in Loop F - the walk-in sites. Love these!! Great Views and good size and well-spread out camping sites. There is a common fire pit between every 3 or 4 campsites which makes it fun to meet your neighbors. (Some of the campsites closest to the parking area also have their own fire pit) They do get alot of...
