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

It is a nice place in an amazing location, but it is only $2 less than Watchman which is close by, but they get so much more - including modern bathrooms and electrical hookups. The real problem is that there are no reservations, but this place is very popular, so weirdness happens - coming in after 10am? well, you will need to find something else, and then show up at South first thing in the morning to get a spot. This makes for a cumbersome first day or two. The hosts do everything to help, though. If it were me, I would up the prices at Watchman and put the money into the infrastructure at South. - i like it quiet

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

Has everything necessary for a pleasant visit to a very popular national park: close proximity, a great view of the red rock cliffs, full hookups, and adequate support services. The Campground is adjacent to a motel which operates both. Springdale has all the additional services to enhance the visit. Staff was friendly and helpful. Wifi adequate until users woke up, then it slowed to an unusable crawl. Verizon signal good. We would return for a longer stay. - Roger H.

This is a decent sized RV park. It is attached to a Quality Inn hotel and has no affiliation. Interior roads are paved; sites are gravel; our site was not very level. Showers require tokens - 5 min per token; we got 4 tokens for 2 people for 2 nights. Campers can use tiny motel pool, but they cannot have free breakfast. It is near the entrance to Zion National Park. It was packed when we stayed. Lots of rental rigs and lots of children. Everyone seemed congenial and friendly. The park was quiet after dark. Internet signal was strong but super slow and dropped connection often. They have decent cable TV, which we used. A river runs next to the park (Virgin River). It was not running real fast or deep, and lots of children were in it (cold). Daytime temperature was 110 to 115 range, but cooled off in evening. A decent place to stay while visiting Zion. Park is in the town of Springdale with lots of shops, motels and places to eat. - Scot671

Location, Location, Location.... This is the closest RV park to Zion. If you do not have a towed its the best option for visiting Zion. we went in July when it was 97 degrees so if you want AC you need a full hookup so your rig does not melt inside.
The Virgin river is right on the camp ground . Bring some tubing rings and you can tube on the river. They charge $23 to rent them near the park. You start with tubes near the commercial area at the visitor center. You can take to last stop near shuttle stop 8 if you want. There are about 15 sites with 30 amp service right on the river primo spots!!!
You are on shuttle stop 3 close enough to bike or walk to Zion visitors center as well if the shuttles get full in summer time.
We rented shoes and a stick to hike the narrows. You do not need the shoes in the summer when water is warm but you need a good solid hiking stick. You can use a nice pair of sneakers that can get wet. Bring one for the nice beautiful unique hike! Bring a solid waterproof bag for your phone camera and lots of water (97 degrees in summer!)
The Showers and bathrooms were ACed as well. They are newly built and really nice now. Maintained clean.
The other reviews are spot on small sites, laundry, near neighbors, etc. I gave an 8* due to location. If you are looking for a plush resort go further from Zion and drive in. - Pumpman2

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

I am giving this park a lower rating for the following reasons: 1. I think it's not fair to exclude particular dog breeds. Their reservation confirmation says "NO ROTTWEILERS OR PIT BULLS OR ANY MIX THEREOF". This is an outdated notion of dog breeds and even though they said there was a good reason for this, this park should strike that clause. If you are a dog lover, I'd consider not staying here for this reason.
2. Reservation system is really strange. You have to pay up front $25 nonrefundable fee, not knowing if you're getting a site. This prevents you from
Ensuring you have a site until you hear back, and traveling in remote areas around the area, doesn't make a lot of sense.
3. There are WAY too few bathrooms for the number of sites -- only three bathrooms and showers, which are combined. Last campground we stayed in before this one had 12 showers PLUS 12 toilet stalls, and campground was about the same size!
4. The street lamps are ridiculous - why go camping? The magnificent starry skies are obliterated. Their reasoning does not make sense. Hello, flashlights and headlamps exist.
5. We got a site that was literally on the road (a low wall
separated us from the busy highway.) Bring earplugs!
6. A "riverside site"
Is NOT that. A large stone berm
separates you from a not so pretty river; you absolutely can't see it. AND you aren't supposed to climb on the wall, so forget about ever really seeing the river.
7. I saw way too many NO . . . and DON'T DO . . . signs. I felt most were unnecessary.
8. It really isn't very close to Zion. A pretty long 25+ miles round trip and once you are there, it's impossible to park there and you're forced to take a shuttle anyway. Try if you can to get a site at Zion itself. We didn't plan far enough ahead and they were full already.
Pluses of this park are the pretty nice people who run it and a decent hot tub. I'd plan to go here only if you have no other options in the area. - Campers2016

This park is easy to find and get into. The interior roads are paved but narrow. Big rigs can have a tough time making turns but all seem to manage. Sites are paved and level. Utilities are well placed and worked well. Wifi worked very well except in evenings when inundated. Sites are pretty typically spaced but there is nice, well maintained grass between that gives the park a good feel. Very nice pool. Nice laundry. We would stay here again. - cwier

A very nice and quite RV park - one of the best we have seen during our trip through the Western part of the USA. The park is very nice arranged and has a lot of plants all around. We were happy to have a site near the river. It is a pity that there are not so much showers (and restrooms). You might wait some minutes. The staff is very friendly. The RV park is very well located to visit the Zion NP. - WorldTravelers

Very nice park for our month long stay to explore the area. Per day price based on $395 monthly fee. We also paid about $66 for electricity used. We rate this as one of the best parks we have stayed at. Very neat and clean. They were working on the back section of the park but it did not bother us. Some work on a site near us but that should be expected if they are to keep a park in this good of condition. Don't let its location in town keep you from using this park. There was no city noise or traffic issues and there is a grocery store and fast food within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again if visiting the area. - JAW

This is a nice park. It may be the best in the area, but there were a couple of issues.
We don't have dogs, so the constant dog barking was annoying here. It seems everyone, except us, has at least two dogs and while walking them around the campground all of the other dogs have to greet them by barking.
The park is shady and we had a grassy area next to our trailer, but no picnic table. I saw a table or two here and there, so I called the office to ask if there was one available we could borrow, but there was not, so we ate inside.
As you enter there is a huge dip in the road and I mean huge. Be careful. The speed limit is 11, but it's not possible to go that fast through the park, which may be a good thing as long as you have everything fastened down.
There is a 30 day no refund policy. That's is a bit strict. I don't ever recall staying in another park anywhere that was quite that strict.
I would recommend the park, but watch the dip, bring ear plugs if dog barking bothers you and bring a table if you want to eat outside. - Maraywil

This is a lovely campground to stay in while visiting Zion Natl Park and the area. The sites are large enough and very well maintained. Level concrete pads each with an area of grass and shade trees. Very clean. Good wifi and cable. Great water pressure. Very nice staff all around. When we pulled into our site some tree limbs were scraping the top of the RV so the maintenance man came over immediately and took off the limbs.
The shade trees are great as it's hot here! While driving around I noticed that not all of the area campgrounds have trees so it's a plus. Keeps your site and RV nice and cool in the heat of the day.
There is also a very nice club house which includes a large book swap library, and a pool table that can be converted to ping pong. Everyone here seems to have a dog . There is a dog run behind the office with waste bags available. Also, they offer a dog washing area which I used today ... hot and cold water and a basin to put your dog in while washing them. Perfect!
Very near a large grocery store, restaurants and hair / nail salons.
Definitely more of an adult campground than for children. No pool which would be great in this hot weather but water must be expensive here.
We would come here again .... definitely convenient - about 30 minutes to Zion- and the town of St. George, which is interesting, is only 20 - 25 minutes away.
I read a review which mentioned a "hellacious" speed bump in the entrance area ... it is acutally a water drainage trough. There are flash floods in this area and the trough will divert water in case of severe rain. Just drive slowly and you won't have a problem. - Rdtrip04

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

The prior reviews are accurate. Additionally:
- bathrooms are across the street (U.S. 89), no showers
- sites need to be picked up (butts and bottle caps)
- Wi-Fi poor, Verizon 1x, AT&T excellent
- access to a golf course behind the hotel and restaurant
Sites are generally flat back-ins to a creek with trees. Easy stop after a long drive and good for accessing East Zion. - Jay d

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
