This is a fairly clean campground, though I found some trash at my site. There's traffic noise, but almost none at night. Sites are shady, non-level dirt. Each site has a picnic table. Generator hours: 8-10 AM and 6-8 PM. Roads are narrow asphalt in fair condition with a few large potholes, tight turns, some low branches, and many cracks in the pavement.
Verizon LTE works well. Terrestrial broadcast TV: CBS PBS. No VHF weather radio. - wjzcbn

Very busy, so get their early...even in October. Nice sized sites, water at the dump station. Very close to visitors center and shuttle bus to all the hikes. Great location. - John WD Smith

The sites are large and most are shaded. The bathrooms in the 'B' loop have been newly renovated and are nice and clean. The river was nice and clear and the water cool and refreshing. By the end of July it can get a bit muddy when the thunderstorms bring in the red silt. The only real negative is the lack of showers. After several days of hiking in near 100 degree temperature a shower is almost a necessity. - tsparky

Very convenient location, close to visitor center and shuttle bus stop into canyon. Nice views of surrounding mountains from most sites. Sites were fairly generous. We had 30 amp service. Perhaps nicest toilet facilities of any National Park campground I have ever been in. Very clean and attractive. Our site has some restricted view of mountains due to trees. Adjacent site and several sites across road would have been perfect. - j harris

We managed a last minute stay of 1 night since I hadn't booked in advance. We loved the campground and our site was spacious The views from the campground are great. Site was gravel with a fire pit and picnic table. You can walk into Springdale from the campground. The shuttles inside Zion were great and very convenient. Managed to get OTA tv signal and decent Verizon service. We would stay here again. - jtl2

Staff very friendly. Large back in's and pull throughs. Great shuttle system in the park. No showers or full hook ups. - RonD H

Showers were extremely clean. The single shower unit I used had a bench and hooks. We never needed to move our truck. Walked up town, to the park and rode the bus when needed. There was a small grocery across the street and Sol was five or so blocks away. Great location, we will definitely stay there again. Easy in and out, we stayed in site three. - Utah Crew

Location is what this place has going for it - closest to Zion NP so definitely most convenient for daily trips there (but must drive or take shuttle), walking distance to restaurants. We were in river site 14 and had adequate but not generous space. It was nice to look at river but don't get too close- bank is undercutting. Muddy during rain. Cable fine but Wifi unusable any place in park or office. Token needed for 6-min shower but no bench and only one hook inside stall. After showering must pack up, walk outside and into bathroom for toilets and sinks which also have no place to put anything down. Very poor shower/bathrooom design for such a high price. - Jane & Art

Pleasantly surprised after reading a few negative reviews. This park has a great vibe and views, I'll definitely be back. I stayed at another campground in Virgin last year, and while it was very nice, the convenience of staying in Springdale cannot be understated. There was ample room to maneuver and park my 31' trailer, site was almost perfectly level (although not all are). No issues with utilities, and they have cable! WiFi was spotty, but was able to do work and stream YouTube at non-peak hours. 2-3 bars of Verizon LTE. Super easy access to the Virgin River and many spots to hang a hammock. I love that this is walking distance to pretty much anything in town, and the bus is super convenient. Facilities were convenient and clean. You get 1 shower token per day which gives 6 minutes of water. I preferred to shower in my trailer unless it was a long sweaty day and then I'd use 2 tokens in the shower facilities. - Bodie217

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! - Carole S

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. - sam and hope

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. - SandyA

This place should never be considered an RV park. It's a half finished camping resort. It's mainly cabins and tent camping. A lot of activities aimed at campers, especially children. It appears there was some idea to accommodate RVs in the past. There are about 10 spots, all on asphalt but surrounded in red dirt and weedy grass, which turns into a quagmire when it rains. None of the sites are level,we managed to get close to level after changing our site.
There is a restaurant on site which serves decent food but the service was terrible. Staff tried but obviously weren't trained.
WiFi was good but went down, along with electrical power during a rain storm.
This is the closest park to Zion NP and they know it. They run tours and excursions and this appears to be a priority for them.
Definitely not recommended for RVs. It's way too expensive for what it is. - TGA2016

This is a grand family resort with tons of new activities for both adults and kids. We were in site 7 nice site near showers and laundry. We did mini golf and lots of biking nearby as well as the solar heated pool with 2 pools and 2 great slides. We did tennis, volleyball and bouncy trampoline that day. Next day canyoneering, pool again, mini ATV for kids, Zipline, Horseback riding the next day with PAINTBALL! Yeah!
Checkin perfect, WIFI very strong we did Skype to Peru on it. They are adding more tennis and basketball courts next year. Well maintained great staff. We will return soon! Everyone loved this place!
Its near zion but we stayed at a closer resort for our zion activities as we did not have a towed. - Pumpman2

We read some of the reviews from the site and had to post. We ended up here by accident, but it is a pretty impressive place. They have a nice lodge serving breakfast lunch and dinner, a huge activities barn with everything from horse riding to canyoning to ATV rentals. Heated pools and very nice showers. The staff of young people were friendly and helpful. They offer cabins, tent platforms, and RV parking. The RV park is good, but most sites require some leveling. Great for kids and families. - BettieFordonTour

Fantastic RV resort only 25 minutes from Zion National Park. Great facilities - toilet / shower combo (can get crowded). Choose a site by the Virgin River side (mine was 99). Dog friendly. Plenty of shade. Even fire rings! One of the top 10 resorts I've ever stayed at! - Panthera16

One of the nicest RV parks I've visited. Paved roads, gravel pads, paved patio, picnic table, fire ring. Hookups are well located for motorhome. Lovely clean pool and hot tub. Wifi sometimes available in the resort office. Weak Verizon signal there, too. The abundance of campfires every evening made for smoky air in the RV. Located about 20 minutes from Zion NP. - 42lena

When I'm paying almost $60/night, I get pretty picky about the park. In our experience, Zion River Resort was worth every penny. Our site was probably one of the nicest back-in sites in the campground because it was so spacious (Site 55). It was a gravel site in a corner so it was open and spacious in the back. Full hookups and cable. There is no actual river view which was a little disappointing, but there were nice amenities at the campground: cute general store, social room, game room, free coffee, beautiful pool/spa area, and a shuttle service to Zion National Park. The laundry facility was nice, but a little pricey ($2 for wash/$2 for dry). Bathrooms were also nice: individual rooms with a toilet and shower. There are two separate bath houses with at least 3 bathrooms in each house. The only drawback is the 7-minute shower timer then there's a 5-minute pause "to save water." Maybe I'm slow, but it takes me longer than 7 minutes to shower and wash my hair. If the timer was 10-12 minutes, I would not even have mentioned it. We were in a back-in site, but the pull-through sites were very long with cement pads, landscaping, picnic table and fire pits. The staff was very friendly and helpful. One negative was that we had absolutely no cell/data service with Verizon at our campsite. There was one tiny spot in the game room where we could make a phone call, but that was it. Not sure if a booster would help provide better connectivity. - Smashcamp

This is a nice park. Lots of shade trees, so if you want satellite make sure you reserve a site that has a view of the southern sky. They know which ones they are and they are noted on there map. They have cable but you have to put $150.00 deposit on a box to get it. We had a satellite site. What was a disappointment was the management. When we made the reservation a week earlier they didn't tell that our site was next to some construction they were doing in the park, so for the full week we were subjected to noise and dust. Also the first night we were there a water main broke next to our site and flooded our night. First we couldn't find any management or security to report the problem, finally dialed 911 and they sent the city out and they finally found someone. We were up until 5am with people trying to fix the water leak. Not one word of sorry about keeping us up all night. Later in the week they turned the water off for the whole park and didn't notify anyone. I know things happen but the management basically gave the impression of oh well too bad. - The traveler

At checkin I was put off - first thing I was handed was 4 pages of rules and was told they wanted to make sure I behaved. First day WiFi wouldn't work. I was pretty much believing I was going to not go for the park - I was totally wrong. The place is spotless, how many parks have a street sweeper. Trees galore and the sites are concrete and very wide and level. Gas fire pits in 3 locations and the club house is the best I've seen. WiFi was fixed the second day and worked well. This is one nice place and we will be staying again. Except for the 4 pages of rules I would give this park a 10. Just goes to show one can be totally wrong about first impressions. - Littleguy

Pretty, clean park with paved roads, concrete pads. There are both shady and sunny sites. Quiet location on edge of a neighborhood. Zion NP is about 40 mins away. St. George shopping and dining are about 30 mins away. - 42lena

For being close to the highway, this park is very quiet. You are parked beside a small creek, full services and the use of the hottub across the street at the hotel. It is centrally located to sites the area has to offer. We will definitely be back! The only thing that would make this place perfect would be if we could enjoy a campfire in the evening. - dbfay

For $20 a night we received a 30A full-hookup spot under huge shade trees. They even allow full access to the hotel pool and hot tub, which is open until 11 and very handy after hiking in Zion all day... With it's proximity to the Zion entrance, what more could you want? - Bay Area Early retirees

Hard to talk about service or cleanliness when all you do is check in and there is nothing to clean. That being said, it's a good deal. I thought the road noise would be worse, but vehicles are just rolling when they go by and in late May, there wasn't much traffic, especially at nite. Plenty of room to back in anything, levelish, and across the street to bathrooms at the hotel or c-stores. I didn't check all, but my space and a few others were only 50 amp. Fortunately, the grocery store in the next town north had an extensive (and surprising ) hardware store in the back with an RV section with a well priced adapter. Also good food at the German restaurant. Ate at both restaurants by the park, couldn't finish either meal. We were there four nights exploring Zion and felt it was a very good deal. Would stay again. - Dave n Rene

This park is right on the junction of Highway 89 and SR 9 leading to Zion NP east entrance. Check in is at the Shell gas station. It's just a place to park your rig with full hookups and explore the area. No restrooms, no showers. Road noise throughout the day, almost none from 8 pm to 6 am. Weekends are more busy traffic wise. The parking lot is gravel and dirt, looks pretty run down, but everything works fine. Hookups in the right place, no WiFi, no cable. We asked for the WiFi password for the motel across the street and received it for free. So we had excellent WiFi. I needed to prune one tree at our site a little to prevent branches from screeching on the roof during the night. Overall not an appealing location, but cheap and with easy access to Zion. We enjoyed our daily commuting drive into the park, saving $15 for the tunnel each day. - TheSchweitzers

Monday, April 29 – Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, Utah This park is in the southwest section of Utah to the east of Zion and near Kanab. If you come out of route 9 heading east from Zion, you head south on 89 for about 4 miles than pick up route 43 for another 12 miles south. There are plenty of signs posted along the roads and the drive into the park is very nice. The park has juniper and pinion pines and steep red cliffs. Once you drive in and stop at the visitor center the ranger or hostess that checked us in was very nice and informative. The campground is just down the road and there are twenty two sites in one loop. No hookups, but water can be found at the dump station and bath house. The bath house is one of the best that we have seen in two months of traveling-very clean and updated. They do take reservations. If you don’t reserve you may have to check in every day to see if your site is still available. Our site was a nice pull through, level and shaded. What this park is known for is 1200 acres of pink sand dunes – beautiful. We even took the OHV tour offered in the parking lot through the sand dunes $$ with one other couple and a nice guide. It was a great time. I am glad we were there on a Monday, because on most weekends this park fills up with campers and day visitors, most with their own OHV’s and we heard the noise can be loud. Quiet hours start at 10 at night until 9 in the morning. When we left Zion, it was in the mid 90’s and I thought it would be unbearable here without hookups, but it wasn’t. It was cooler than Zion with a nice breeze blowing through all day. This was a one night stopover for us and we were so glad that we decided to camp here. - gsnakehill

The ride from Kenab to this park is one of the most beautiful I've driven. The park is a gem. The colors in the area are amazing. Sunset is the high-point of the experience. Trails over the dunes are good and there is an ATV trail network available. There is absolutely no communication available, but there is a pay phone at the Visitors Center. Staff was friendly. Restrooms/showers are new and great. The road into the area is narrow, but really worth the drive. - Red Wolf Deux

Only two of the showers were functional which caused some wait times to get cleaned up. These are located at the dunes and so it would be difficult to keep sand out of the showers (bring shower sandals). Sites are large and provide much privacy compared to the cramped sites of the cookie cutter resorts. Note: there is one site near the bathroom with hookups. Much ORV traffic, but quiet hours were respected. - summersj0
