    Overview

    For visitors to Zion National Park, Watchman Campground is an ideal place to stay.

The canyon and most of the park's trails are only accessible by shuttle bus from approximately March through November each year. Season Dates: Watchman Campground is open year-round. Reservations are available 6 months in advance.__

    Natural Features

    Zion is known for it's dynamic geologic history and Watchman Campground is no exception. Named for the rocky peak that rises above it, the campground is surrounded by tall sandstone cliffs that glow red and orange during sunrise and sunset. The Virgin River, a narrow but powerful river that has carved out the canyon over time, runs adjacent to the campground. Cottonwood trees surrounding the campsite turn golden in the fall. Most of the campsites are in partial to full sun, however in the Group sites (E-Loop) and the Walk-To sites (F-Loop) visitors may receive some shade under pergulas that are constructed over the picnic tables. Visitors can also cool off in the cold river when temperatures peak during summer. Be Advised: The months of April and May bring an unusual infestation of Tent Caterpillars, which fall from trees onto tents, tables, and unsuspecting campers and can make it quite uncomfortable to sit outside. The months of July and August in particular bring a higher concentration of ants in the campsites, which seem to come out especially after the monsoons, but are present all summer long. Insecticidal treatment by visitors is not permitted.

    Zion Campground is a spacious piece of paradise that has been owned and operated by the Ferber family since 1973 when the adjoining Zion Canyon Campground and RV resort was founded by David Ferber. Our staff has explored the canyons and surrounding areas and can be quite helpful about where to go, what to wear and who to see for the outdoor adventure of a lifetime.

    After a long day come back to your site and freshen up for dinner with a choice of more than a dozen local eateries from casual to upscale all within a shuttle from our campground. After dinner sit outside and watch the sunset under The Watchman, a truly breathtaking sight.

    We only allow two pets in a site and they must be in an air-conditioned RV/Trailer. There are no pets allowed in tent sites or in sites in which the vehicle will not have air-conditioned being run all day.

    Hurricane, Utah

    Welcome to Quail Creek State Park Campground, a gem nestled near Hurricane, Utah. This spot is perfect for those who love stunning lake views and a bit of peace and quiet. The campground offers a mix of tent and RV sites, many of which are right on the water, giving you front-row seats to some breathtaking scenery.

    One of the standout features here is the clean and well-maintained facilities. The bathrooms are kept in good shape, and there are hot showers available, which is always a plus after a day of exploring. Speaking of exploring, the lake is a big draw. You can rent kayaks and paddleboards on-site, making it easy to get out on the water and enjoy the calm, clear conditions. Just be mindful of the shallow rocks that can sneak up on you.

    The sites themselves are spacious and offer a decent amount of privacy, thanks to the thoughtful layout. Each site comes with a covered picnic table and a BBQ, making it easy to settle in and enjoy a meal with a view. Some sites have electric and water hookups, but not all, so be sure to check when you book. If you're in an RV, you'll appreciate the pull-through options, though not all are level, so bring your leveling blocks just in case.

    For those traveling with pets, the campground is pet-friendly, but keep an eye out for thorns and foxtail grass that can be tough on paws. And if you're planning to stay connected, be aware that cell phone coverage can be a bit spotty.

    Overall, Quail Creek State Park Campground is a fantastic spot for a relaxing getaway with plenty of opportunities for water activities and enjoying the natural beauty of the area. Just remember to book early, especially during peak season, as this place tends to fill up quickly.
