24 Reviews of Zion RV and Campground (Hi-Road)
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.

First time camping mother/daughter

Great woman and helpful at the front desk. Campsite along the river. Beautiful and calm. Saw dee walking around the campste at night. First time camping wih my mom. So fun!

Zion RV & Campground, near east gate Zion, UT

A lifesaver since Zion itself is now a madhouse.  Good luck ever getting a first come first serve spot in Zion.  The staff was very helpful in letting us stay with our spur-of-the-moment arrival.  Pretty rugged site, but with full hookups & a campfire pit. Shower & laundry facilities too.

Zion camping alternative

Got to Zion too late to snag a campsite in the park, so we headed back out the East entrance to the privately run Zion RV and Campground. On the plus side, it is right outside the east entrance, its not as big as the park campgrounds, it has showers on site as well as laundry and a game room if thats your thing, and we were able to get a site around noon as the weekend approached. On the downside, sites are tiny and tents are mixed in with RV's and campers, so lots of generator noise, and the bathrooms were not as clean as many others I've seen. Truly, this is an RV campground, not tent, but sometimes you take what you can get. No campfires allowed while we were there due to dry conditions, but there were fire rings for when conditions are better as well as picnic tables for each site. There is a gas station and pizza place conveniently located across the street.

Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort

…is actually where I stayed although this app apparently hasn't added this to their map. Just outside Zion National Park, this resort has absolutely everything you'll need. ATV, horseback, rock climbing, and even canyoneering tours are available. With that being said, it's a given campers will have access to running water and astoundingly clean showers as well. The staff were all extremely welcoming and I certainly recommend this resort for solo up to large groups as well, being that large numbers can easily be accommodated for.
