Zion RV and Campground is nestled in the red rock cliffs just feet from the East entrance to Zion National Park. We are located in the Zion mountain area, across the highway from a full service gas station and restaurant. Our campground is in one of the most central areas to 6 of the Nations’ top National Parks and Recreation areas.

Because of our central location, you can set up your RV or campsite and enjoy all of nature’s beautiful parks from one convenient location. Our elevation of 6000 ft also lends itself to great spring, summer and fall temperatures, and mild winters with only occasional snow-cover.

So if you are looking for the perfect place to relax and enjoy Zion National Park, you have found the right place.
