Zion National Park Our guests agree that Zion National Park is the place where you will want to spend most of your time whether you are driving through the beautiful scenery, hiking the trails, biking up the canyon, or riding horse back. Regardless of your fitness level, there is something for everyone. Between April and October, the free Zion Park shuttle makes seeing the park convenient and accessible. Pets are not allowed on the shuttle bus. The drivers provide a narrative and share fun facts while you ride through the scenic canyon. The complete round trip takes about 90 minutes. You can get on and off the bus as often as you like to take pictures and walk the trails.
DON’T FORGET TO HIKE “THE NARROWS”!!! Best. Hike. Ever!!!

River Tubing ~ Zion Adventure Company During the hot summer days in Zion National Park, tubing is usually the best way to beat the heat and still enjoy scenic views. http://www.zionadventures.com
Kolob Reservoir This area is the little known jewel of Zion. Great trout fishing! Located along the western edge of the park it offers spectacular views of red rock mountains, Eagle or Condor sightings, hiking trails, pictographs in Cave Valley and fishing in the reservoir. The temperature at Kolob Reservoir is usually 10-15 degrees cooler because of higher elevation so it is a great day trip in the summer. In its lower regions, the Kolob is a lush world of red cliffs, golden grasslands, and rugged canyons. As the road climbs you enter forests of juniper, ponderosa pine and aspen with meadows and ponds set against black lava formations.
Bryce Canyon National Park This full day adventure will take you on a loop past wild buffalo, pink rock “hoodoos”, majestic mountains and a picturesque lake. The most direct route to Bryce is through Zion National Park. Built in the 1920’s, the Zion tunnel is an engineering marvel. There may be a delay if the tunnel is backed up, but the winding drive through the East Side with views of sandstone cliffs like Checkerboard Mesa makes it worthwhile. The Buffalo Grill is a unique place to stop for breakfast and take photos of the buffalo herd grazing on the golden meadows. North on Highway 89 you will find quaint towns with rock shops, homemade pies, quilts, and even hand-carved and crafted burial caskets.
Boasting some of the warmest waters in the state and a mild winter climate, Quail Creek Reservoir lures boaters and anglers year-round. Spend a day on the water fishing, swimming or rent a Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) and/or kayak & visit a nearby state or national park, then retire to a campsite in a spectacular red rock desert setting.
There is so much to see and do in and around while camping in Zion! Mountain bike riding is beyond epic in every area of southern Utah. ATV trails go on forever near Sand Hollow Reservoir and beyond into near by states! Get out and go RV Trailer camping now!
