Awesome spot, worth the effort

I would definitely recommend coming via the Apple Valley way unless you have a good 4wd vehicle and are comfortable with that kind of road. Camping spots are a little tricky to find but worth the hunt. Definitely check out the Wire Mesa trail, it is an awesome trail run or mt bike. There are some good camp spot along the road that the TH is on. Takes about an hour to get to Zion from Wire Mesa via Apple Valley.

Under a zillion stars..

First of all , being able to camp free on BLM land has been a huge blessing for us & we’ve lucked out so far! Please continue to take care of these places so we can continue to enjoy the solitude! This site is about 15 miles outside of the main entrance to Zion. It’s great when you want to get away & out of the people/tourist filled hustle & bustle going on around the restaurants, hotels & resorts right outside the park. While the shops & eateries looked lovely, it wasn’t doable for us with 4 pups! It was a beautiful night & a perfect night for a stroll. After hiking the park with the pups , we just wanted to settle in to some peace . Based on other reviews , we took advice on how to maneuver in & find a site. Boy oh boy was it a bumpy ride! If you have a travel trailer like us , make sure your cupboards are nice & secured shut or your stuff will go flying out! We have a plenty big truck & a 19ft trailer . The ride will likely feel more like sailing on very choppy water . More bouncy than anything. We drove in about a mile & found an empty site. It wasn’t level but we made due. It had a neat Little Rock built fire ring someone left . It was clean & completely waste free. The sites are not marked ! Just drive until you see a clearing & make it home for the night or two… It was pitch black out , others around us but also nowhere near us. Dead silence & a sky packed full of visible stars. It was a nice little layover after a day at the park & before our next destination!

Easy access and great views, close to Zion

Dispersed camping on BLM land in designated spots. Popular area but lots of space between sites. Close to Zion, roads are accessible with 2wd (some 4wd or awd would be nice). Lots of mountain biking trails to access in the area, depending on campsite the trails go right next to you. No shade, so gets hot.

Amazing sunsets

Designated campsites with fire pits. Some sites are marked with a sign and number. We were not able to find all the campsites. Most people were camping in a large packed area a shit distance from the highway and most campers did not have fire rings. We were there for four nights and no one came be to check. No water. No electric. No trash service. If it rains I would be prepared to move as the road will turn to mud. There were several roads that went in different directions but not sure about designated camping spots. Our campsite was the best but it was not marked. We turned right onto a road went a short distance. If you continued to follow the road you would see a sign that said No Camping. We turned around and took the first road to right. There we found an empty campsite large enough for two units but only one fire ring. The site was at the edge of the canyon with beautiful vistas. Site is not level but still worth. Dusty and a lot of wind. I’m

Amazing views, clean

We drove in very late and had no idea what was around us. It is quite a ways of the main road but wasn’t hard to find. Woke up to jaw dropping views and cows grazing next to us. I was pleasantly surprised that there was grass. Only negative was that the potty nearest to us was out of tp. I had brought some do not a huge deal.

Amazing!

This campground is very difficult to get a reservation at, but well worth it if you are exploring Zion! Amazing views right from the campground and convenient access to everything inside the park. Facilities are nice and space was adequate for our tent.

The Zion Hub

This campground is located smack dab inside the parks main entrance, right after the visitor center. It’s open & mostly tents. There is very little privacy but the sites weren’t terribly close. The Pa’rus trail runs right along it. It’s the only dog friendly trail in the park , so 5 stars for that alone . It also sits on the beautiful Virgin River. I mean right on it. There were a few deer roaming the grounds too. It was cool but they looked almost too comfortable thanks to us humans & our food. Lol. There was a beautiful set of cliffs & mountains on each side of the grounds. The night was gorgeous & there was just this beautiful buzz in the air amongst everyone co-existing in the park that particular evening. Even had a few beers tossed to us from random friendly folks at campsites along the trail while we walked the pups!! Met some lovely gals from New York who gave the pups treats & love too. It was all so very perfect! The pups splashed around in the river to cool off right off the trail. Access to the water was mere steps down a path. No hook ups but we came prepared for that! Overall 100% recommend.

Beautiful spot

Great spot- all the sites are right on the water. The drive up to the reservoir is long but very pretty. It was kinda crowded by the time I got there so getting there early in the day is best.

Crowded

Stayed here in the fall- super packed, sites are close together, not much privacy. Also looked like there were a few squatters who had been there a while… Lots of ants, views weren’t great. Proximity to Zion was nice but wouldn’t stay here again.
