We have been going to Zion Ponerosa Ranch for a few years now for Spring Break. It has been perfect. Not too hot like in the summer and not to cold. We always wear layers so we can adjust to what we are doing that day. The Resort has so many activities for the kids they are hardly ever left with out something to do. Then there is Zion's National Park just minutes away and the spectacular hikes and things to do there. It is a great spot for everything you would want to do for a trip. My kids and family are already working on another trip for next year.

Room is ok - a cabin. However it has no bathroom or even a sink which is very basic for the money. Staff seem to finish at 8 so any issues after this (such as very noisy people outside our cabin) and you’re on your own. Which is not very helpful.

Quiet Campground Great Nature!

Stayed for 4 nights in the tent campground area now called Zion Crest Campground and loved it! Still very early in the season so there were very few other campers. Heard turkeys gobbling every morning, hundreds of mule deer driving in every day, a huge herd of elk which was rare at the time. Showers are fantastic with each individual room having a heater on a timer with the lights (it was below freezing for our stay)! Camp sites are plenty big, felt “nature-y” tucked into the woods on all the back loops. Just on the back edge of the property is East Mesa Trail to Observation Point in Zion: easy terrain when it’s not muddy/snowy! Amazing views without all the hard work of starting at the bottom in Zion! Downsides: 35-45 minute drive from campground down to Zion visitors center. We didn’t mind that because the drive is beautiful and tons of wildlife. No close grocery offerings (Family Dollar 35 minutes away or into town past Zion). Front desk could really use some pointers on customer service tactics at a self-proclaimed resort: very nice but not very knowledgeable of Zion or resort offerings. Their text question option to the front desk was nice when I was looking to find out if the Narrows was open but I had to prompt them to google it for me when I didn’t have service, but they did! WiFi is really nonexistent in the tent area, somewhat useable in the bathhouse if that matters to your stay. Overall will definitely be staying again! Hope it’s just as great during their busy season!

Great visit to Zion Ponderosa

We had originally booked tents for glamping but when we got there they had upgraded us to a cabin because all the melting snow and rain had left that area very muddy. They did this at no up charge or us having to ask. It is quite remote located 5-6 miles outside the east gate of Zion. For those of you not familiar with Zion the visitor center is on the other end of Hwy 9 at Springdale Utah, 12 miles from the east gate. The drive through the park is breathtaking so it was quite enjoyable. The cabin we had slept 4-6 and had a kitchenette and was quite comfortable. There is a good restaurant on site as well as an activity barn with all kinds of things to do as well as a mini golf course. This is a huge property so we didn’t even scratch the surface of what all there was to do. The staff was very friendly and there is a store with necessities at the check in building where the restaurant is. If you want crowds and lots of people go somewhere else. But if you prefer peace and quite and a bit of solitude this is the place!

Awesome Destination!!
