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

Let's be clear about this campground..... it's about location, location, location. Watchman is located IN Zion National Park!!!! When we arrived, the campground was full; reservations are STRONGLY recommended.
The campground is limited to "Electric" only sites. There is a dump station near the entrance of the campground. Our site (B-13) was listed as 70' long. When we arrived at the site, there were two logs separating the back 20' from the front of the site. The overhang was partially shaded and the picnic table was located there. We had room to park our 40' MH plus our "toad" in the site without encroaching into the road.
The sites are of the local crushed red rocks and even after the rain, we didn't have mud. Some of the sites are fully shaded; others are not.
Overall, a very nice campground. We'll be back for sure! - Maddog11

Spacious camp sites in Zion National Park. The campground is within walking distance to the shuttle buses that take you to the different areas of Zion NP. Cars are not allowed in much of the park. The busses are free. Definitely convenient. Site was not very level. - WyomingFord

This is one of the best campgrounds I have ever stayed in. Loops A & B have electricity, which is all I need. Filled the water tank when we arrived and dumped the waste at the dump site as we left. All sorts of deer/elk roam through the sites. Rabbits and lizards too. Lots of trees and you can wade in the sandy bottomed Virgin river when it's hot. The staff was very friendly and present. There is a reasonable amount of shade and spacing in the campground. Though the sites are somewhat close, there are trees and bushes that divide most sites and make things seem more private and shaded. Our fellow campers were very quiet and respectful. On a clear and moonless night, the stars are wonderful. The adjacent town of Springdale is quaint. But, if you want some wine when you enjoy the stars with your honey, you have to go to the state liquor store, which is hidden in a gift shop in town. I guess this is Utah, after all! Strange they do sell beer in the grocery stores, but not wine. - SeaTeacher
