Beautiful resort, amazing activities team (shout out to Brandi and Parker who were exceptional in every way. I highly recommend the horse-riding and canyoneering. Brandi was so special and really helped me conquer my fear of heights and repelling; Parker taught me so much about American style riding and ranching! As for the resort itself, the area is just stunning and well maintained. The communal showering facilities were always spotless and warm, and hook ups for RVs were all great and easy to use etc. The only thing I would improve upon is staff attitude at reception and the food at the main resturant could be vastly improved upon. It would also be helpful if they sold propane on site, however the resort shop does stock key clothes and basic amenities.

Best place for first time in Zion

The site is absolutely gorgeous, large space, plenty to do with family but some of the things we couldn’t bc it was cold for my little one. But she would be down if she was a bit older. Staff were super nice. We did have on blip which was fixed but we had no reception to call anyone to fix. But in the morning they helped out.

Such an authentic experience!

I'm normally a hotel/resort type of traveler as the big chains take good care of return travelers. But every few years I'd stay outside of the typical Marriott/Hyatt hotels and I was happy I did! This property is northwest of the Zion National Park and we rented a cabin for two nights to do the zion canyon hike, explore slot canyons and visit Bryce. Being in the middle of nowhere in a secluded forest gives you the feeling that you can "get away from it all" not to mention the clean, crisp mountain air. Not a luxurious property but honestly i felt like i recharged my soul. Will definitely come back...

Cool place but needs some rules enforced.

Stayed for 3 nights this past week and got very little sleep. Quiet hours are not enforced by staff and there is one to report issues to after 10pm. Grill was down for maintenance and the food selection was limited. We will probably give them another try but stay in a cabin where the loud nights won’t matter.

Best place to stay for you visit - Best bang for your buck hands down

I’ve been coming to Zion for a few years, always staying in Springdale, but never again. It’s absurd to stay anywhere other than the ranch. Luxury vacay homes, cute cabins, novelty sleeping enclosures, tent camping, RV… everyone can find exactly what they need here. Amenities. Speaking of everything you need! Pool, water slide, hot tub, mini golf, rock wall, wading pond, game room, tennis court, basketball, playground, fire pits, walking/nature trails… If that’s not enough they have tours available on site, horseback riding, stargazing, canyoneering. Good restaurant, has everything you need. Great friendly and helpful staff to answer any questions you have WITH REAL ANSWERS! They even helped us with road conditions for our return home. We stayed in one of the cowboy cabins; very comfy bed, nice cozy seating area (ottoman/couch) heater was perfect, outside patio had a beautiful view, private picnic table and fire pit with chairs. The bathroom was large and clean, laundry room next door and the showers were in individual rooms. Good pressure, temperature, space and most had decent ventilation. I do think we will stay in a deluxe cabin with a bathroom next time but not because there was anything wrong with the shared bathrooms. Just personal preference.
