The Ponderosa Ranch is a short drive out the east side of Zion. We enjoyed the drive in and out of the park. We often saw bighorn sheep and views are amazing. It also was a shorter drive to Bryce Canyon. We stayed in the Sunset cabin. It was comfortable for a family of 4 with adult children. The windows...

I was a little worried that the Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort was too far from Zion's National Park entrance. It turns out that we very much enjoyed the drive east out of the park for a few days as we caught much of the beautiful scenery and wildlife at different times of the day and thus, very different pictures. The...

Some how we found this place for lodging when we visited Zion park. This place is a distance of the beaten path, 5 miles to be exact but worth the drive and paved road at that. We stayed in a cowboy cabin which was very comfortable with a bunk queen bed and a futon. No bathroom in cabin and a...

Breakfast is included for everyone but the nice cabins. Dinner was good. Packed lunches didn't look good. Mini golf course, Rex center, horses nice touch but all cost extra. Great location to avoid crowds of Zion. No where else to eat but on property.

We went to Zion on a day with pretty fair weather. The sudden change of weather caused the area to start snowing during the night. When we woke up, the entire place was covered in snow. It was beautiful! The restaurant there is pretty yummy and service is pretty decent. After arriving at the hotel, my dad had to connect...

I stayed 2 nights, one at a tent site and one in a covered wagon. The tent site was nice, exactly what you'd hope for (level site, included a picnic table, clean bathroom and shower). The covered wagon was a really fun experience. It had a double bed and two twins, could comfortably sleep 4 adults. No electricity but they...

We drove our RV in....This was a great time. We stayed one night and decided the kids loved it so much we stayed another. Only criticism I can say is they need to work on the food at their restaurant. Really lacking there! and the service ...not so great... They have a buffet for their employees that looked better than...

We have been so excited to visit the Zion Ponderosa Ranch. We frequently host large family gatherings and reunions and we are always looking for a place here in Utah with a variety of accommodations. Some family members prefer tent camping, others like cabins or hotel like accomodations with kitchens. We thought we had found everything at Zion Ponderosa Ranch...

Really enjoyed our stay at Zion Ponderosa earlier this summer. Was pleasantly surprised by the facilities, proximity to Zion National Park, and the little bit cooler temperatures. Had a few great meals at Ray's Restaurant and really enjoyed our server Kainoa. Also took a dip in the pool and used the playground with our little one. Overall a really great...

Thanks for your kind review. You mentioned our close proximity to the park and guests will appreciate that our property does sit on the border of Zion National Park, and we are just five miles away from the east entrance of the park via paved road. Come again soon.

We stayed here two nights in an RV spot. While our spot was not the best we were lucky to get it during a busy local school break time. The kids loved the pool and the playground. The zip line was a little "rustic" but fun. The staff here are incredible. Dinner menu was good and worth the wait. Lunch...
