Spending the night at Zion National Park doesn’t get much better than glamping! While summer is the peak season for hiking, Zion glamping adventures are available year-round.
Zion Glamping offers one and two-queen bed tall tents perched at varied elevations. Each tent features soft comfy bedding, bath towels, cooling units, outdoor fire pit and seating and daily housekeeping.
Experience the Majesty of Zion National Park
The glamping experience strikes the perfect balance between adventure and relaxation. Spend your days exploring Zion’s winding trails, photographing stunning landscapes and marveling at the diversity of flora and fauna before returning to your luxurious accommodation in the evening. Unwind by the firepit or soak in your private outdoor tub under the stars.
Zion National Park is a treasure trove of natural wonders, and a visit at any time of year offers something unique to see and do. Fall brings vibrant foliage and winter offers snow-capped vistas. However, one of the best things to do in Zion is simply enjoy a quiet afternoon or evening at your secluded cabin retreat.
When visiting Zion, be sure to practice Leave No Trace principles and be mindful of wildlife and the environment. Respect plant life and geology, do not disturb rock cairns (trail markers) and avoid adding new ones, use only existing campfire sites, and leave drones at home. In addition, be mindful of your physical limits and pack all essentials for your trip, including food and water. Practicing these principles will help ensure that Zion’s beauty is preserved for generations to come.
Stay in a Covered Wagon
Zion National Park is famous for its sandstone cliffs that rise steeply out of the ground, creating scenic canyons and trails. Over time, the paths carved in these red, orange and pink sandstone walls were used by native peoples to traverse this landscape. Today, they are one of the most iconic hiking trails in America.
Whether you’re hiking on the famed Angels Landing trail or exploring the slot canyons of Zion, you will need a place to sleep. Choose between Zion’s three campgrounds, all of which are located within the park. Campsites range from tent only to RV sites with hook-ups. Reserve your site well in advance of your trip as camping spots are popular.
Watchman Campground is a quarter-mile from the southern entrance of Zion and offers 203 tent and RV sites (no hook-ups), including first-come, first-served tent-only sites. There are also six group sites that can accommodate up to 40 people. All sites have access to clean drinking water and toilets.
Bring plenty of food and drink as Zion’s temperatures can soar in the summer. Stay hydrated, wear a hat and sunscreen, and heed all warnings on the trails. If you notice signs of heat exhaustion, such as headache, clammy skin, nausea or vomiting, seek medical attention immediately. Avoid swimming in any of Zion’s bodies of water as it is possible to ingest cyanotoxin, which can cause illness and even death.

A yurt is a type of semi-permanent tent based on circular in design and resembling a cross between a hut, a house and a circus tent.
