“Enjoyed stay at riverside site”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2011

1. Camped in the B Loop along the river. River was running high and we enjoyed listening to the river.
2. Sites B56 (not much shade) and B58 (more shade) afford the most privacy. Make sure to look at the map/photo before making reservations. B37 has a lot of privacy b/c of vegetation and it is in the middle of the loop. I did not view the other campground loops.
3. Since we camped in an RV, we liked the electric hookup.
4. No showers, but we had one in our RV.
5. Two water spigots and two dump sites at the campground (all in one location).
6. $20 per night was a great price!
7. Bathrooms flush toilets and sinks with cold water only. Typical National Park bathroom.
8. Very quiet after dark.
9. People friendly and pets were kept on leashes.
I would definitely stay there again.

Great shade in the back row. There seemed to be fewer washrooms than normally in a National Park campground. Behind the trees that shaded our site were picturesque hills. It was quiet in the back row and the shade was a relief in the heat of the day. Close to town and the visitors center.

Spent 3 nights in loop D, tent only area (loop C is also tent only). We love it here. Camp ground is clean, has great views and all around great experience. There are clean bathrooms with running water & toilets, no showers. I found the camp ground to be very quiet. People seemed to respect the "quiet hours".The campground is a quick 2 minute walk to the Visitors Center and the shuttle stop. Also from Visitior Center you can walk out to the town of Springdale. This is area where the Zion movie is, groceries, and a few dining choices. You can also catch shuttle to Springdale. Zion is very well thought out and easy to get around. Know that they do not sell bottles of water in the park, so pack your own water bottle and fill it with the natural spring water at the filling stations.

We tent camped here for 3 nights. It was a lot warmer at night than round Escalante and Bryce and different scenery again, with more vegetation and towering rock faces. We camped in Loop D I think, it was tent campers only so did not hear any generators etc. The ptich was not huge but big enough for our large tent, truck and then space for us to picnic. The toilet was clean and had running water. The drinking water was nice and didn't have that funny chemical smell you sometimes get in the parks. Zion is a very popular park so the benefit of this camp is you can park your car here and make a quick walk to the visitor centre to catch the shuttle through the park (very frequent). Also, you can walk, or take the shuttle in the other direction to go out in Springdale which is a lovely town, with quaint shops and restaurants. (though a little pricey)
There was a little bit of noise at night, and music, which i think was coming from the kids on the group site, but you come to expect that in a tent so always travel with ear plugs!
