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

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

I give this an 8 because it's not full hookup and sites are close together. Other than that, it is great. With the temperatures in the area, it is nice that the national park campground has sites with electricity. The Virgin River flows along the edge of the park and many people were beating the mid-day heat by lounging in the river. Definitely a bonus to the campground. The sites are very close so if you are sitting outside you are going to hear everyone else's music and conversation. It's still better than any private/commercial campground. Location to the Zion park buses is unmatched. I can't imagine staying outside of this park. The vehicle entry gate to the park gets a line early in the AM and the parking lots fill quickly. When you are camping in the park though you simply walk maybe 1/4 mile to the visitor center. No traffic, no backups. There is a long line in the morning for the shuttle buses. Hikers like to get moving early. - WineStream

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
Jun 2016 - $42.00
$42 was the weekly rate. The campground is in an ideal location for visiting Zion, and is walking distance to stores and restaurants in Springdale. The town shuttle stops at the entrance to the campground, and will take you all through Springdale or drop you off just outside the Zion entrance, or you can walk to the Zion entrance from the campground. Verizon and AT&T worked well. The sites are extremely tight, especially for big rigs with tow vehicles. We lucked out and were assigned to what was one of the biggest sites in the RV park (which was still pretty small). The Virgin River runs around the edge of the park, and just on the other side of the river is the national park's Watchman Campground, so campers from both parks lined the river daily swimming and relaxing. We swam our dog in the river during our walks to keep him cool (temperatures were in the 90's during our visit), and waded across the river ourselves. The location and river were the highlights for us. The site size was the big negative for us. We'd consider returning, but may instead try the adjacent National Park campground next time instead. - LifeRebooted

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

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. - Ann_Dave

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
May 2016 - $60.00
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
Aug 2016 - $54.00
One of the best "resort" style parks we have stayed in. We stayed here 5 nights in a pull through site. It is one of the few parks that has lived up to the "resort" moniker. OTA tv is good, but their cable tv is analog and not that great of a picture. WiFi was good especially for a park this size. Laundry was on the cramped side with only 4 washers and 4 dryers. Quiet at night and very well run. Store on site has basics and some souvenirs. Nice pool and game room. Verizon service was very spotty, but they do have a booster, unfortunately it is in the game room so not useful if folks are playing pool. We would stay here again. - jtl2

One of the best campgrounds we've stayed in, paved roads and sites. Site was level with a gravel patio. Very kid friendly with several activities. Wifi is typical for a campground, satellite was good at our campsite. Restrooms/Showers were unisex, large and clean. Laundry was good, but need more machines; there were not enough for a large park catering to families. Very close to Zion NP and they offer a shuttle service for a nominal fee. We would camp here again. - TxDiver

About 14 miles from the Zion National Park entrance, this park effectively caters to those who want luxurious surroundings, and charges accordingly. The access roads are paved. Sites are fairly level concrete pads separated by grass and a nice gravel patio with a table and fire ring. Although spacing is a bit tight, our site easily accommodated a 37' MH and toad. Water, electricity, and sewer hookups were convenient. The WiFi signal was strong and thruput reasonable, and they even have a Verizon booster so we could make calls by going to the office. We didn't use the bathrooms or laundry. Central facilities include an outdoor pool, a game room, and a social hall. Everything is extremely clean, neat and well cared for. As expected for such high-end accommodations, they charge a premium price. - DaveInOhio

Very clean resort. Maintenance takes pride is his work. Very quiet resort with very few kids. No pool may be a reason. Nice concrete pads and grass. I wished there were tables for outside eating. Plenty more of room for our 45' with toad.
Some areas have lots of trees, we choose no trees for our satellite. - Karens BAM

Beautifully shaded pull thru RV sites here! Camping there in the summer heat the shade from the 4 trees at our site was very helpful in keeping our motorhome cool and made sitting outside much more bearable. Long pull thru site with plenty of room for tow. Beautiful park and very clean. I believe this park had the nicest area for trash I have ever seen...cleverly hidden and never any trash around. Would definitely stay here again and close to Zion National Park. - Tinkerbell56

Very clean and quiet. Staff was very friendly on the phone and in person. No tables or fire pits. Only complaint is a 30 day no cancellation policy. - RonD H

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

Easy sites to back into. Ours (#10) was quite level. The traffic noise was tolerable, speed was about 35 MPH so even the semis were moderate, better than a few others parks we used. Sitting, next to stream made everything OK. Great staff at motel. Area seemed under good management but only saw a few garbage collectors so really couldn't guarantee security protocols. Excellent pool, hot tub, and laundry (3 machines @ $1.75). Wi-Fi was 3-4 bars, AT&T cell was adequate. - User3698

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
