Zion National Park, Utah

An oasis in the desert.

A must see spectacular canyon.


Zion Park.

Zion National Park is located in the southwest of the State of Utah. We do not believe that Zion National Park can be described to you. The canyon walls are too tall. The colors too vivid. Much too wonderful for words.

Every sight that you see, every single one, is a miracle. A heavenly place. Close to God.

Campground

We visited Zion during the last week of April, 2006. Empty campsites were easy to find, because we arrived in the morning. People who work in Zion say that by the end of May, it is very busy in the Park.

Shuttle

Shuttle buses travel all the way up the canyon, and even into the nearby town of Springdale. The buses are free, and arrive about every 10 minutes.

It is so fantastic to use the shuttle instead of driving your car. No worrying about parking. Just board the shuttle and off you go.

Bike Path

The Pa'rus trail bike path goes from the Visitor's Center to Canyon Junction. The trail is about 3.5 miles in length. Each shuttle has racks for two bikes. You may ride the shuttle up, and coast back down.

Some bikers go all the way up canyon to the Temple of Sinawava, and coast back to their campground!

Shopping, restaurants.

Very close to the campground is the Visitor's Center. A minute's walk takes you across the Virgin River bridge where you will find a restaurant and a good sized grocery store.

Zion Lodge.

If you like to stay in sumptious surrounding instead of camping, Zion Lodge is just three miles in the canyon. The Lodge has a very nice restaurant, with a buffet bar for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
