Wondering where to stay in Zion National Park?  There are plenty places to stay in or around Zion that offer comfortable accommodations.  

Zion National Park can be found in the Southwest corner of Utah and is one of my favorite U.S parks.

Although small in size, Zion is home to two infamous hikes, Angle’s Landing and the Narrows.  You won’t run out of things to do.  The tall sandstone mountains are a sight that I can never get sick of.

I compiled a list of where to stay in Zion including camping, Zion vacation rentals and hotels for all budgets.

zion canyon campground

Last time I was in Zion, we camped at the Zion Canyon Campground.  It was located right off stop 3 on the Springdale line.  It was pricey at $45 a night for campground standards but they have showers!

There’s nothing worse than hiking all day and not being able to shower afterwards.  The campground also has grills and WiFi in some areas.  Book a tent site down by the river, its the best spot in the grounds.
