Im looking for a nice campground in the Zion National Park in Utah?
We`re traveling to Utah in 2 weeks and would like to do some backcountry camping in a tent. We`re looking for a nice campground which would make a nice base for hiking trips. If anybody could recommend a place in Zion National Park, something without RVs and for tents only.
The only thing I can fin that is anywhere near you description, without RV’s is: Lava Point off Lava Point Rd., this is in the north/central part of the park near Sawmill Spring.
Others would be Zion National Park (South Campground) this might fit your needs better as you’ll be close to all activities. You can’t do much driving in the park and may need to use the shuttles. Also close is the Watchman Campground (435) 772-3256, both parks, same number.
All other parks are RV parks. I would call the above numbers for availability as this is a highly visited area.
We are heading to Zion National Park next week, what are the must see spots?
Just wondering if anyone had any fabulous spots, hikes, or views to share. Also, what is the best camping spot? My husband said he thought there was some camping on the river…anyone know the name of that area?
In Zion Canyon the two “must do” hikes are the Zion Narrows and Angel’s Landing. The Narrows are considered by some to be the grand-daddy of slot canyons. If you haven’t been hiking in a slot canyon before it will be an awesome experience. Carefully read the information provided by Zion Adventure Company at the web page below to prepare for this hike. I rented the footwear, water-proof backpack and hiking staff from Zion Adventures when I did this hike. I went during the month of October and the water was cold but not cold enough to warrant a dry suit. Quick drying shorts and a T-shirt were sufficient but carry a jacket just in case. Take heed of all warnings and check the weather at either the visitor center of Zion Adventure Compary before proceeding into the Narrows.
See the description for the Angel’s Landing hike on the web page listed below. I think the photos speak for themselves. If you have a fear of heights, this hike is not for you. Awesome views and a good workout.
I haven’t done any camping in or near Zion but here’s a web site for you to check out.
How cold will it be in Zion National Park during the 3rd week of March?
I’m going there for a week to camp out/hike this spring break. I live in Texas. I don’t know how cold or warm it is there.

yes, that easy
Camping overnight for the first time?
I’m planning on hiking the Narrows in Zion Park – that’s a hike treading the Virgin River. I have plenty of hiking experience, but I’ve never stayed overnight. Any tips on how to pack and what to expect?
I ve done that Hike make sure you have a good pair of water shoes you will do most of the hike in them no need for a tent for that hike just a mat and a bag . And bring easy to fix food and plenty of sunscreen and bug spray.An internal frame packpack is best on this hike it balances better in the hike down the steam bed.
Hope that helps
