Zion National Park has three campgrounds. South and Watchman Campgrounds are in Zion Canyon. The lava Point Campground is about a 1-hour drive from Zion Canyon on the Kolob Terrace Road. There are no campgrounds in Kolob Canyons.

Camping is permitted in designated campsites, but not in pullouts or parking lots. Camping is popular; all campgrounds are often full by early afternoon on weekends and holidays. During June, July, and August, the campgrounds are full every night. Several private campgrounds are a short drive from the park.

Zion Canyon Campgrounds

South campground and Watchman Campground are near the south entrance at Springdale. This part of the park is desert. There are dew trees to provide relief from the heat. Some campsites get shade for part of the day, but many get no shade at all. Summer temperatures exceed 95 °F ( 35°C ) and lows rarely dip below 65°F ( 18°C). Staying cool is a challenge. Remember these temperatures and the possibility of a sunny campsite when planning.

All campsites are drive-up and allow a maximum of two vehicles. Only one RV or trailer is allowed. Any RV including motorhomes, cabover campers and camper vans, or any trailer including 5th wheels, pop-up campers, and cargo or boat trailers are vehicles and count toward the limit. Each campsite allows a maximum of six people and two large tents or three small tents (1-3 persons).

Comfort stations provide flush toilets, cold running drinkable water, and trash containers, but no showers or electrical outlets. Each campsite has a picnic table and fire pit with attached grill.
