Plan B

Not as good as camping in the park and twice as expensive this campground (in November) offered plenty of campsites on relatively level ground. The fire pits are prehistoric without any grates but… if you can’t get a spot in Zion… you’ll hopefully appreciate finding a spot here.

Roadside RV campsite

This is average private roadside RV campground located on the main highway heading into Zion National Park from the east. The site has decent facilities with a gas station and cafe located across the street. If you are planning to stage and enter Zion early in the morning this may be a good one night stay for you. The site was a bit busty and noisy from the highway traffic. The setup is an open parking lot with electrical and water hookups. If you are out of options and want to camp close to the National Park this may be a last resort for some. The main attraction here is the proximity to the east entrance of Zion.

Great Site

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend since all the sites inside the park were booked full. The location is great, a bit of a drive to the visitors center but we knew that from the beginning. We had a site right on the road and were concerned at first but it ended up being pretty quiet and the view of the rock faces from our site was amazing. There was a very loud group that was shouting and singing until 1AM one night but other than that it was a wonderful experience (dead silent the second night we were there). Would definitely recommend and will stay again

Very bad experience at this campground

My wife and I stayed at the Hi-Road Zion RV campground outside Zion national park in our RV on the nights of 17,18 and 19. June 2019. On arrival at the campground on the 17th, we checked in with the front desk lady, drove to the assigned RV site and connected the RV to the hook-ups as usual. Immediately on connecting to the 50 Amp power, there was a sparking sound, a strong smell of electrical burning, and our microwave burnt out. My wife went to the office to ask if there was anything wrong with the power, and was told“Oh you shouldn’t be using the 50 Amp connection, didn’t anyone tell you(they didn’t)”. She was then told by the office that my e-mail confirmation of the reservation had included a statement that only 30 Amp was provided(the e-mail confirmation had no such statement). She later checked the Internet information, from where we had the link to Hi-Road, and it clearly stated 30 Amp and 50 Amp available. I checked the other RV sites on the campground and many had the 50 Amp connector taped off with duct tape. Ours did not. The owner of the campground, Erika McLaws, graciously accepted responsibility for the problem and agreed to replace the microwave. Following the burnout, the Hi-Road maintenance man put large notices on all the RV sites saying 30Amp only, and disclaiming the campground from any responsibility in the event of damage from the 50Amp connector. On leaving Hi-Road, we travelled to Page in Arizona, where we found that the forward air conditioner was also not working. The problem was investigated by RV Country in Flagstaff and they confirmed that the air conditioner had suffered the same damage as the microwave. We informed Erika. Both the microwave and the air conditioner were finally repaired in Yuma Arizona, and we submitted copies of the bills to Erika with a request for reimbursement. The response from Erika and her husband Todd was to deny responsibility and claim that the 50 Amp circuit could not have been to blame. Obviously we could not accept this. For two weeks, all attempts to contact Erika were unsuccessful. Calls to her personal phone forwarded to a voicemail which was always full and could accept no further messages. E mails were not answered. Messages left at the campsite were not answered. Finally, on 12. July we received another e-mail from Erika and her husband fully rejecting our claim for reimbursement. We must evidently take further action to achieve settlement. The campsite itself is in a good location, but can best be described as quite primitive, possibly at the start of improvement. The ladies at the front desk are very pleasant, but in the circumstances, I cannot recommend this site.

OK Campground East of Zions

This is an ok campground on the east side of Zion’s. We stayed here for three nights while visiting the park. It is quiet but a bit of a drive to the many road to take the buses into the park. The facility was clean but needs updating and some maintenance. They are some beautiful new cabins so hopefully they will update the facilities soon too.

Good for price!

Reasonable price for right next to east entrance to Zion! Great shower facilities and WiFi in main building. No service on site. Lots of sites. Tent sites were pretty and big. Flushing toilet and water near sites.

Best deal

Very close to Zion and but nothing else around. Newer facilities but WiFi not great at sites- just in main house. Not very busy and price was great!! (Especially after paying unreasonable amounts in Moab). Staff friendly and showers/laundry/comfy couches to chill at and play cards. Full hook ups:)

Good in a pinch!

Stayed here one night in our camper van. Not a lot of rv spaces (completely full when we showed up late on a Saturday night) so we opted for a tent site which was cheaper anyways and they had plenty of open slots for a Saturday. It probably helped that it was rainy for the tent sites.

Good location, about 5 minutes down the road from Zion's east entrance. And zion is just amazing! Highly recommend taking a few days here!

The grounds have nice showers and restrooms along with coin-op laundry and foosball tables. Decent wifi (writing this review here) and nice couches in lounge area.

And the view is amazing to wake up too here! See photos.

Great location. New park name Hi-Ground.

Four stars only because of the complete lack of Wi-Fi as promised in the campgrounds. If you went into the Hut with the laundry room, showers and game room service was perfect. Site is a little rustic with power and full sewer hookups. At&t phone service pretty non existent. Could however use Wi Fi calling in the hut. Some of the RV sites were very difficult to get into with a larger rig. There is a pizza place and store across the street. However if you're looking for good pizza this is not the place to go. The location could not be beat. It is a half a mile to the entrance of Zion Park and 12 miles from The Visitor Center where you catch the buses to explore the park. Hiking here is absolutely amazing. if you go in the summer just be sure to start the heights early because it does get hot, and bring plenty of water. Fire pits in each site.
