We had a really good experience here. Our site was very spacious and comfortable, not too close to neighbors. We were on the B loop, near the river. Bathrooms were close by and very nice (no showers, as I'm sure you know). We did have some noisy camper neighbors the second night, who seemed to be partying at 1:30 a.m,...

Forget about a normal National Park experience. Watchman Campground is directly across the river from a heavily built-up strip of beer gardens, cocktail lounges and outdoor wedding venues. We had the misfortune of listening to folk musicians on our right trying to drown out the wedding DJ on the left and the rock music at center stage. I will NEVER...

We had a good stay at Watchman campground. We stayed for 2 nights and it rained heavily on both days. Our campsite ground was level and we did not have any problems with run off water. The bathrooms were very clean and well maintained. Wonderful views from the sites and conveniently located inside the park.

Very nice campsite. We arrived after dark and our campsite number had been left on a noticeboard so it was very easy to find. The view of the mountains when we woke the next morning was great. The site was close to the free park shuttle service. Everything was clean and well serviced. There were no showers in the campground.

The location of this camping, next to the Visitor Center inside the National Park, is very convenient. Each tent site has space for two medium tents and it includes a table and benches and a fireplace with grill. We liked it here, but if we ever come to Zion again, we might stay at the South camping, as the tent...

This site is great, overlooked by the mountains and so close to the entrance. However, the ground at our site was too hard to put tent pegs in and there wasn't much shelter so it was pretty hot/close in the tent at night. Aside from this it was a cracking place to stay and the toilet facilities were nice! The...

Watchman campground is a great option if you love to camp and don't mind roughing it. We stayed in loop C site 003, the views were amazing and close to the bathrooms, but not too close! There are no showers at the park, but there a some close by. If you follow the signs from the visitors center to the...

This is the third time I've stayed at the Watchman campground, although it's been 10+ years since the last visit. We stayed in the C loop, site #6. I believe this area is for tents only and as such, our site felt spacious. While the campground was noted to be full, there were several sites that went unoccupied during our...

What a great place to stay. This was our first stop in a National Park with our little travel trailer that turned out to be bigger than we thought it would be. It still travels well and fits in places like Watchman Campground. We reserved our space on line a few weeks ago, assuming crowds thinned out in later September....
