One of our best camping experiences ever. We tent camped 3-nights. Everything was so well-maintained around the campground. Spectacular views, clean restrooms, paved road, good attention by the staff to regularly patrol the campground. Flush toilets and very nice dish cleaning station in the bathhouses. Though showers were not available in the campsite, showers were conveniently available a few minutes...

This is the campground you'd expect at a very busy national park. The sites are large and shaded by trees. The bathrooms are adequate and clean. The staff is friendly. There are no hookups. The price is reasonable. The visitor center and museum are withing walking distance. Your neighbors will likely be friendly and mostly quiet.

This is one of the best campsites I've ever been at. We camped in a tent for 2 nights with a spectacular view of the Watchman at sunset and sunrise. The camp is very well managed and right in Zion National Park which makes getting to the hikes very easy. It's right near the south entrance so you can pop...

This was almost the very best national Park campground I've ever seen! We were surrounded by beauty, all was clean and well presented and within a short walks reach, and I found everything managed very very nicely. Of course it was April. I imagine it will get to be quite a bit more of a zoo/circus by June. Still, my...

We travelled through the major west coast National Parks and this was my favourite campsite. The pitch are great with fire pit and bench, we also had electric hookup. We were in a small camper but there was room for every type of camping. Toilets are clean and have washing up basins outside. Showers are available in the near by...

Clean sites and friendly staff, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Zion. Wonderful views and a quick walk to the river. There are no showers in the park which was our only complaint, but hey, that's camping! Bathrooms were kept up tho! Our site was C8 and we hope to come back some day!

We were here Resurrection day weekend, and this place was just impeccably clean! Love the site where we were, it was spacious and right in front of the river. And the view? Unbelievably beautiful.Amazing campground! We are planning to comeback again in the summer. God's creation is in full display in this place. I highly recommend this campground.

Typically, campsites at the Watchman Campground are reserved 3 to 6 months in advance. I planned to get to Zion National Park early to get a campsite at the South Campground, which is designated for walk-ins; first come, first served. The evening before traveling to Zion I got on the website for the Watchman Campground and found a vacant campsite...

Really nice place. The facilities are top-notch, and the sites are well-spaced. We never had a problem with noise. The tent area is not exactly gravel, like some other comments have mentioned, but more like larger smooth flat rocks. Great to insulate if it's cold at night or great to cool down if it's hot. Very comfortable even on a...
