My wife and I visited Utah a few weeks ago and had a wonderful stay at the Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort .By midweek we were in Bryce Canyon, and our last stop was to see Zion Canyon for a 3 day/2 night stop. We chose the Ponderosa Ranch based on previous Tripadvisor reviews, our own research, proximity to the Observation Point Trail, and that we were coming into the canyon area from the East. The Ponderosa Ranch has accommodation options to suit everyone. We chose a cabin suite and it was perfect for us. Comfortable, air conditioned, small kitchen and full bath, and furnishings were fine for our needs. As our plans were to hike and explore the canyon as much as we could, we didn't spend a lot of time on the property itself. But all of the activities they offer looked excellent. We saw others enjoying the pool/jacuzzi, mini golf, activities barn with wall climbing, pool table, games, sports fields, etc. We ate at Ray's Restaurant on the property our first night there and in Springdale our second night. Not really a complaint, but it would be nice if Ray's Restaurant had more dinner options than what was available the night we were there. I would certainly recommend Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort for anyone looking for a wonderful memorable stay away from the crowds. This resort is ideal for families.

I stayed in my own tent at one of their tent sites. The bathrooms and showers were really clean! They had laundry on site too. I liked that there are so many different activities and a restaurant. All the staff were super friendly and helpful as well

Mediocre at best

We opted to stay here for one night in the Glamping tent. The tent was fun, spacious and clean and we enjoyed the experience of sleeping in the tent and a camp fire. The downside is the property is pretty average at best. The pool was overcrowded so we did not attempt to swim. The showers and restrooms appeared to have not been cleaned between usage so luckily we only stayed one night and didn’t use them either. The horses were very friendly and fun to interact with. The guys tending to the animals were very kind and engaging. The restaurant was a disaster. The lettuce in the salad was not fresh and the pizza was greasy and sloppy. The manager apologized and blamed it on the new guy making pizza. To make it up to us he brought our kids a burnt cookie with ice cream, which was a nice gesture had it been brought after they Finished their dinner and not during it. Breakfast was included and gross. A buffet with no concerns for cleanliness. We decided to pass. There is no WiFi unless you are in restaurant.

We had a really good time on this trip. We rented a camping site. The shower houses were clean, there was restraunts on site. We enjoyed the pool, ziplining, and rock climbing. There was so many amenities offered. Wifi was a little shotty in the campground area but once we were up front we got it fine. This csmpground is a little ways from anything so I would suggest making sure to bring everything.

STILL NO COVID PRECAUTIONS

The Jeep tour and Stargazing tours were fun, but NOBODY including the staff were wearing masks except for us. As medical workers, this is just a slap in the face. Our guide Justin was nice, knowledgeable and very helpful. BUT, I don’t think staff realizes the risks they are taking for guests. Step it up East Zion.
