Zion National Park Lodging

Lodging Zion National Park Lodging and services are available in East Zion. The main road through Zion, the Zion-Mt. Carmel Highway (SR-9) is open year-round, and is not a route the Zion Canyon Shuttle takes. Zion Canyon is deep inside the park. Towering 3000' walls form a slot canyon, forged by the violent rush of torrent water over millions of years. From late March to late October access through the six mile stretch of road is via the Zion Canyon Shuttle, the rest of the year the canyon is accessed in private vehicles.


Kolob Terrace
- There are six primitive sites at the Kolob Terrace section of Zion National Park. The sites are located at Lava Point and it is primitive camping. The sites are usually open from June to November, but the road will close in the winter due to snow. There is no water or other amenities at the campground.

Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park - The Coral Pink Sand Dunes offers a well maintained 22-unit campground with pull-through parking, toilets, showers, picnic tables and grills. This is ATV Central with abundant off-highway tracks. Location: East Zion. Turn off 3 miles south of Jct. SR-9 & US-89, then continue 8 miles.
