Worst campground we've stayed at. The actual name of the campground on the sign is Hi-Road Campgeounds. Their address came up in our GPS as 14 miles off of its actual location which is about 1 mile from the east entrance to Zion. We couldn't get cell service to even call them to get directions so used a phone at a service station in Mount Carmel. No cell service. No wifi. No tv. The pull through site had a huge hole about 2 feet in diameter in the gravel that we had to fill in with gravel to pull our rig out safely. The only way I would ever stay at this campground again is if I wanted to tent camp with no amenities. The price was outrageous for what we got. No Good Sam or other discounts. The campground revolves around its retail store on the other side of the highway which is also where you have to check in. Awful experience! We camped at Zion RV and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here 1 night while visiting Zion. One rain day kept us in the park, which we found had enough to explore on it's own!
The campground is spacious, especially the pull through sites a bit up the hill on the east. Other sites are less secluded, but still plenty of room, with shade. We had full hook ups and everything worked fine. Campground has a few short hikes - to a slot canyon, as well as a look out, and some caves a little on the eastern side. Horses in front friendly, and the kids in the campground loved them. Lots of tent sites also. It is all very sandy, which may explain the bathroom complaints. No cell phone coverage in the area, but good wifi in the pleasant cafe across the street. Love being on the east side of the park, no crowds, views as good as in the park itself. Would stay here again. We camped at Zion RV and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is an absolutely bare-bones park. It does have pull-thru sites with full hookups but no cell service, no wi-fi (except across the street at the Trading Post), no cable and no TV reception by the antenna. The sites were gravel and fairly level but off the actual site was dirt and mud. The restrooms and showers were very dirty and I don't believe they were cleaned at all for the entire length of our stay. The laundry had quite a few washers and dryers and a lounge area to wait in with several couches but it could use cleaned, too. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the fact that the park is less than a mile from the east entrance to Zion Park was really the only good thing I can say. I seriously doubt if we would stay there again. We camped at Zion RV and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Talked with new mgt in May & encouraged to book even though it had bad reviews. "Give us a try!" Only really positive thing I can say is that the location is great to get to Zion, Bryce and North Rim of Grand Canyon. The check in person was friendly and worked out a correction to my charges for my reservation in May favorably. I knew there was no WiFi or cell coverage here, but I expected cleanliness. The restroom/shower, which served almost the entire camp of 75 RV sites and several more primitive tent camp sites, was filthy throughout our 4-day stay. The same dirt present when we checked in was still there when we checked out. Shower stalls had mud and dirt throughout our stays. The camp was without water for several hours "because someone didn't turn on the pump from the well to fill the supply tank" according to the mgt. Water was hot, though, for showers, when it was there. The site was even and slightly shaded and a pull through. We camped at Zion RV and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

It's been stated before, but the worse part about Zion RV & Campground is the reservation system. You must call after noon and ask for Lisa, the reservationist, she can be hard to get a hold of; I found this to be the only way to book a site. Get a confirmation number and confirm your arrival and departure time. They told me I'd get a pull-through site and instead had a back-in site, but it was not a bad site (fairly level, picnic table, tree, 20' to neighbor, power/water/sewer at site). All the staff was very friendly and as helpful as they could be. The general store across the street is a bit touristy, but the pizza shop is great and has Wi-Fi, which only works in the pizza shop. There is no Wi-Fi or cell service at your campsite; this can be a blessing or a curse. This is on the East side of Zion, so if you want to get to Springdale you must drive through the park and pay the fee ($25 weekly fee, and refer to below note if you are towing through the park). Easily the cheapest Zion RV park. We camped at Zion RV and Campground in a Travel Trailer.
NOTE: If you have a coach longer than 40', or a TT/5th wheel-rig with a total length of over 50' exactly, you will NOT be allowed through Zion East entrance (RV park is 1 mile East of Zion East entrance, so you must enter from Rt. 89). If you want to get to Rt.15 from here, you must drive around Zion to the South through AZ, about an hour long detour, but a very pretty and easy drive.
Pizza is good, open 11-2 & 6-9:30ish. No cell service or Wi-Fi at campsite, Wi-Fi is available in pizza shop (not too bad to work in for a couple hours). Really plan out your RV orientation; we had to adjust 3 times to get all the connections right while allowing the slide and awning enough room to not hit a tree or the power box.

This campground is hard to rate since there are some really good points and some really bad ones. I think the owners are struggling to make it work and don't really know what they are doing. We had read that the reservation system had problems, and we found that to be true. We rode by the campground on Memorial Day weekend to make our reservation the next week and paid for the first night. When we arrived after the holiday, the only person who knew how the "system" (a bunch of sheets of paper) worked wasn't there, so we had to wait almost two hours for them to figure out where to put us! I heard someone say that whoever happened to answer the phone wrote things down in a different place. So, beware that they may mess up your reservation.
The campground is just dirt and gravel, but that's pretty much expected in this part of the country. The utilities were fine. I tried to take a shower and there was no hot water. The bathrooms were nasty from the holiday weekend, but they did clean them up promptly. Unfortunately on our second morning, there was a flood in the bathroom/laundry, and they had a major septic problem. We were at our campsite all afternoon and dealt with the sounds and smell of septic system pump-outs for hours. The dumpsters were overflowing from the weekend, and they don't get emptied until Thursday so they were unsightly. They have lots of washers and dryers which are $1.50 each.
There is no Verizon cell service. Their WiFi works, but only at the office. We got a signal from our campsite which was one of the closest to the office, but I could only get it to work in the early morning or late at night.
The best part is that it is so close to the east entrance to Zion, which is a MUCH better way to enter the park than at the congested west end. You do have to ride all the way through to get to the visitor center, but what a drive it is! We camped at Zion RV and Campground in a Motorhome.
Be sure you take the Canyon Overlook Trail! But, be there early before the crowds, since a lot of the path is one-way and you have to wait for people.
The trail is very steep and rocky, but not long. The view is worth the hike! The parking lots for the trail are small which is another reason to arrive early.

First the Good...At least two friendly employees. They sell great firewood. One mile from east gate entry to Zion NP. Office served best combo pizza I have ever eaten and sell very good breakfast sandwich. Nice gift shop reasonable prices. If you get a site with trees you will be glad you did. Now the not so good. Park appears to cater to poor planners and tent campers. Restroom/shower more like a youth hostel then what you would expect. They do not appear to mow or rake the RV park. Their email does not work. It bounces. Call to make the reservation get names and be specific. Call the week before you arrive, get names and be specific. Call the morning you are going to arrive get names and be specific. Summary, its proximity to Zion's east gate, and the food they sell in the office is great. Set low expectations for the rest and you won't be disappointed. We camped at Zion RV and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendly staff, entire campground is dirt with some gravel. The 80PSI water caused a few leaks and for the neighbor also. Had no cell service for any carrier, no WiFifrom the campground or from my Verizon Hotspot, and no NOAA weather radio reception. I have satellite so I don't know about antenna TV. There was good pizza at the store. The bathrooms are old and run down. There was some motorcycle noise from the main road. I came from Lake Powell area and was heading to Bryce, so I felt staying on the east side of Zion would make sense, except everything you do, including getting on the shuttle into the park, happens at the south entrance. That is where I will stay next time. We camped at Zion RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

This place was not well maintained. It was primarily gravel and dirt and during high winds it was like a dust bowl. Couldn't get Wi-Fi, no night lights. Pull through not very long so had to disconnect my car. A little pricey, especially for what you get. We disliked it so much, we moved to another campground. We camped at Zion RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

Price reflects some discount. No services, cell phone, TV, or internet--not even if you bring your own. It is at the opposite end from most of the stuff in Zion Nat'l Park. We chose this park because we were headed up US 89. The best part of the drive was the big horn sheep we saw on this side of the tunnels. Showers and restrooms were clean. Site had some gravel but more dust. Tree limbs in a lot of sites are a problem for big rigs. Staff was friendly and helpful. We camped at Zion RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

We called in advance due to some confusion as to whether there was an RV park or if it was just a hotel. The web site did not mention the RV park and it was also called the Mountain River Resort and the Mountain River Ranch but the phone numbers were the same. When I called I was told to call a different number. The person who answered assured me there is an RV park. I asked to make a reservation and she said "ok", then she changed her mind and said I didn't need one, there would be plenty of spaces. We followed the directions on the web site. When we arrived at the address it was the hotel, we were told the RV park was located 3 miles up the road. More confusion. We arrived, checked in: simple, give me your credit card, here's your receipt. No information or directions. We asked which space number and were told any empty space was ok. We then asked what time we needed to check out the following day and was told "oh anytime is ok". We drove across the road to the RV park picked a space, leveled our RV, unloaded the bikes, and started hooking up our electric and water when we discovered there was no water. After more confusion we were told to move to a space in the back two rows as they were the only ones with water. The park is dry and dusty. The bathrooms/showers are clean. We will only be here one night. We camped at Zion RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

We arrived and thought it was closed, all sites were empty. They told us that we could take any site we wanted, the first had no water at all. There was weeds all over and broken hook ups, a shower/bath house that is open 24/7 right off highway 9 with cars pulling in to use. There is some tent camping east of the RV section. In 3 days we only saw 3 other RV's use the park, if you want to be right on the roadway with no neighbors and security than this is the place! Check in is across the street and closest services/supplies about 11 miles east. The campground is 1/2 mile from the east gate of Zion National Park. We camped at Zion RV and Campground in a Travel Trailer.
