Zion National Park Map

Zion Canyon is a mini Yosemite Valley, in red rock, in the high desert.

A terra cotta colored wonderland.

Zion National Park is one of the most visited of all the Utah National Parks Loop, due primarily to its proximity to Las Vegas, NV and Interstate 15.

Zion Canyon, from hiking trail to Angel’s Landing

ZION NP OVERVIEW: To prevent traffic jams and preserve the wildness, the NPS offers a common parking lot (on Hwy 9 @ Springdale, UT) with tram/shuttle service to and from the valley. Plan to be away from your car most of the day when visiting the main canyon. Unless of course, you have reservations at the main lodge. Numerous hiking trails, the Virgin River, Zion Lodge and a restaurants.

Utah Highway 9 leads east through tunnels and more amazing rock scenery, with abundant pullouts for RVs and visitors. Nice uncrowded hikes can be found on the east side of the National Park at many of these random parking lots along the highway.

A small portion of Zion National Park parallels Interstate 15. This Kolob Area is far less crowded than the rest of the park, but no camping is allowed.

Abundant boondock camps can be found all over the Zion area, even along the freeway.

Awesome camps that we discovered in the late 1990’s are now well known and crowded, all year long.

Free river beach campsites W of Rockville, high country of the Smithsonian Butte trail, above Grafton ghost town. These areas are NO LONGER a secret, and are very crowded. BLM camping at Leeds exit is on a first come basis and limited, so you better arrive before dark for the best spots.

EXPERTS TIP – Buy a real map and learn to find campsites, that no one else knows about. Mark a GPS waypoints for future reference. Have the whole place to yourself for once!
