Closed to camping

Used to be a great spot but is now closed to all camping. Signs are posted all over the place.

Beautiful. Fresh. Full of Life

I have been at this campground twice and both times have been fun. The camp comes well equipped with bathrooms and water pumps to put out campfires. The sites are evenly spaced out and they are clean. The mornings are usually fresh due to the amount of shade the canyon receives and you most likely will see deer roaming around looking for food. I will be camping here in the near future!

In one word: Meh.

There is nothing impressive about this campground. If you have an RV/trailer and it’s all that is available, it will do. If you are tent camping- find somewhere else. I have no intention of ever going back or revisiting this place. The staff wasn’t very friendly and the sites were just dusty/dirt. This is my least favorite campground- ever.

Pros: location, location, location. Close to the south entrance of Zion National Park. I think you can even float the Virgin River from the campground (we went in the fall and it was too cold for us). Facilities were clean. Close to shops/restaurants. Cell phone service (T Mobile).

Cons: Busy and commercialized. Since it’s behind a hotel, don’t expect to be camping “in nature”. We should have just stayed in the hotel. Staff was acceptable, but not overly friendly.

Wonderful site

This camp site was awesome! Had plenty of openings, reasonable price and full hookup! At the site we were on there was a creek behind us which we loved and so did our dogs! Friendly neighbors! Beautiful place. Located close to Zion park. A lot of off road adventures near by

Clean, established RV park

We rented a pull behind trailer to tow behind our LR4. We were looking for a clean, established campground with full hook ups, as close to Bryce Canyon NP as a possible. Ruby’s Inn was perfect for that. The spots were nice and level. The showers and toilets were clean. The store had plenty of necessities and the staff was friendly. Lots of restaurants near by and the Bryce Canyon buses stop at the entrance of the campground.

If you are looking for a remote campsite, or at least the illusion of it, this is not the site for you. The sites were easy to get in and out of and there was enough space for 2 vehicles.

Peaceful local spaces

A peaceful spot. Lots of bike trails. Disk golf close by. Restrooms available. Hiking. Nice views. 

Great campground to explore the park

Within walking distance of the Visitor’s Center and main bus stop. Best campsites are along the Virgin River. Watchman Loop B- 56, 55, 52, 48, 46, 42, 41, 2, 4, 6

Great For a Cedar Breaks Adventure!

Easy to access dispersed campground. Coal Creek is a convenient site to stay in if you're checking out Cedar Breaks.

There are quite a few spots suitable for setting up camp and you've got some tree cover to help insulate you from 14. Watch for the pretty big potholes that you'll want to take slow when you first come in if you have a low clearance vehicle but otherwise it's a really solid campground.

Remote but accessible primitive camping

Tldr: A 4wd dirt road out to the canyon with primitive (open dirt) campsites and a few fire rings.

The sheeps bridge road that gets out through the campsites has camping options from right off the highways to deep into the fields by the virgin river canyon. All are primitive, and many have fire rings. I did see some RVs near the highway, but no hookups or dump sites. A number of hiking and off roading shortcuts can get you in and around the area. While there are no large rocks to worry about, after the first couple miles its best to have a four wheel drive high clearance vehicle, as the roads get rutted and in rain very muddy. I made it around easily in a Mitsubishi outlander sport with 4wd. Many campsites are clearly visible by the signage as well as visible fire rings. The fire rings have spikes and mounts for convenience. Due to the elevation and canyon, this area is slightly warmer in the winter, and was not snowed over when the rest of zion was, so it made for good camping (the ground was still frozen). My friend and I had no trouble staking down, and the local gas stations (less than 30 min drive in any direction) all had firewood in the winter. We drove and hiked into the canyon easily from the campsite. Overall a fantastic primitive campsite for good canyon access, nearby hikes, and a few non sandstone climbs/boulders during rainy seasons.

Amazing Free Camping Right by Zion NP!

An amazing spot away from the crowds to enjoy the serene beauty and landscape that surrounds Zion NP!  This is a primitive camping spot and only has a vault toilet and fire rings.  It's basically a parking lot for a TH with a few camping sites on the far east side of the lot going into a loop.  It has great views all around since it is perched atop a large sandstone mesa.  A word of forewarning though!  If you have a low clearance vehicle or a 2WD car then DO NOT go after a storm.  The road is pretty rough on a dry day but you would absolutely get stuck on the way up as the road can be rutted pretty deeply
