campground is nice but expensive compared to purchasing a 1-3day 6.00 adventure pass at the forest office and camping anywhere along the road or on lily lake. the campground is paved and very nice but the road up to the campground is not and due to the large rocks and bumpy road may take a toll on your vehicle. if you have any off-road vehicles, atvs or just like to explore this whole area is the place to be. you can fishing, kayak or paddle board on the lake and during the weekend this is a very popular place. there is bathrooms and also water at this campground
this campground truly has everything you need without all the bells and whistles. it has twos sides you can chose from. we stayed on the side that has four campgrounds. there is a bathroom with TP!! directly across the campsite 4 . little to no traffic through there. there is also a water hole you can pump water from. I didn’t drink from it due to pipe being rusty but Great for washing . These sites are on the smaller side to thug advise against large trailers. the river is absolutely beautiful. the ranger station is less than a mile away. I suggest stopping in and grabbing a map. this will tel you where all the trails and lakes are if you want to go exploring. lily lake is also within a mile. great for fishing and kayaking. and Christmas meadows is within a mile or two also. this site seriously is a perfect location. right off the highway but you done hear the street traffic because the campground sits lower than the street.
Book in advance. These sites can fill up fast especially in prime season. They can also flood in monsoon season. The virgin river runs through camp. No showers, but there are bathrooms and water. Sites are a tad on the smaller side but doable. There are trailers right from camp or you can walk across the street and take the tram up further into the canyon for more trails. You can also take the Springdale tram through Town to eat or check out the location shops. There are some really neat places to see in town. Hikes are hands down unbelievably amazing. The narrows are a must and angels landing. The day we left Zion they had a horrible flash flood that took out a lot and I heard angles landing was closed. I was there the second week of July. Just pay attention the the weather. Days are hot, bring cooling towels, nights are nice but still warm . Most of all, sit back and take in all your surroundings.
this campground has a lot to offer. I don’t think there is any bad spots, but the spots on the road side didn’t seam very flat, but most had at least a spot for a tent. no water, bathrooms and trash. there is a great hiking trail across the street and along camp site to pull off the side of the road and camp of you don’t want to camp in actually campground. spot 19 (I think) was my favorite but would only be good for tent, no trailer.
this is a wonderful location with 360° views. great trail heads located near the camp and literally at the end of the road. we didn’t camp at the actual camp ground but paid the 6.00 forest fee and camped at a previously used spot on the side of the toad right next to the creek.
This campground is in the perfect location. Next to a river/creek perfect for fly fishing, flushing and floating down . It is also not a far drive from Mesa Falls which is absolutely gorgeous and s must see if you’re in the area. From the campground you ca also hike/bike a trail that takes you to in old railroad tunnel or you can trek all the way to the lower falls. The best site is a recent spot first come first serve right on the river.
