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.

Where to Stay in Zion National Park
Best budget places to Stay in Zion National Park
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.
If you don’t mind driving 45 minutes to get to Zion National park opt for these The Hideaway. This adorable glamping tent has AC for the summer and a heater for winter! It has a queen size bed, mini friedge, night stands and all your linens.
Enjoy a glass of wine on your private porch right out side the tent. Although the bathrooms are communal, it has his and hers with hot showers. There’s even coin op laundry on site.
zion park motel
If you’re on a budget but aren’t into camping the Zion Park Motel is a great option on where to stay in Zion. You can’t beat the location. It’s located 1 mile away from Zion National Park and 300 feet from the free shuttle that will drop you off at the entrance of the park.
The motel has barbecue facilities to cook your own meals which also helps you stick to your budget.

If you’re looking for where to stay near Zion and Bryce then you best do it by glamping. The yurt is located up on the East side of Zion National Park. This means it’s a little farther from the visitor center side but closer to Bryce Canyon. On this side there is access to more “secret” hikes that are not in the main stream crowded areas of the park which is the major sell in itself.
