Great place for a visit to Zion
I took my kids for a trip to see Zion and we were so glad we stayed here AND visited during the Winter. There were no crowds and we booked multiple activities on site through East Zion Adventures that were wonderful. This ranch has multiple on site activities and friendly staff and a restaurant. We stayed in a Cabin Suite which had plenty of room and was a nice, private, safe way to stay - distant from other cabins. Not sure how it would be in the Summer when it gets busy but we HIGHLY recommend this place to stay during non-peak times and DEFINITELY check out the activities from East Zion Adventures. One thing to note is that any other town is at least 20 minutes away so if you need supplies / groceries / food (not from their restaurant), you should plan that in advance.

Great place for family trip
Fantastic, cozy cabin that was perfect for 5 people, great activities (my kids did skeet shooting and zipline), so close to Zion's entrance. Staff could have been a little more helpful in planning Zion and Bryce itineraries (not through their adventure company, just going on our own) and in suggesting appropriate bike riding in the area. Restaurant allowed us to take out food given Covid concerns but I suggest that should be standard for breakfast and not require a special request.

Cute and rustic but outdated and perhaps overpriced
We stayed in unit 601 (5-bedroom house) over Thanksgiving week, and we encountered several unpleasant problems:
- pile of trash left on the front door greeted us as we checked in
- there was a dead mouse in a trap in the downstairs bathroom
- showers were not clean/outdated with moldy tiles
- 2 bedrooms in the basement were too cold to sleep in; we could not use them; so people slept in the upstairs sofa instead
Overall, we liked the interior and space of the home; however, it needs renovation! esp the showers. The rustic feel is nice but it just doesn't seem well kept.

No internet!!! Still charged for the cancelled days!!!
We checked in on 11/05/2020 relying on the ads and phone call that WIFI was available. During our stay, I complained the issues of the WIFI and was told that it was because of the elections!!! 4 different devices could not maintain a WIFI connection day or night or even after midnight, it was obviously a problem which management did not care. We decided to leave since my work depends on internet and still charged for the remaining days of the reservation!!!! I have talked to manager in front desk, no help, charged anyways, we moved to another location. I have not experienced such a problem in the past. If there is a lack of service, it is the campground's problem not customers'. Hope this helps your future guests to make a decision before reservation. Either it is water, sewer, electric or WIFI, when you advertise, you should maintain it!

So much to do!
Our kids said this is their new favorite campground. Lovely with a ton to do. The only downside was the pricing. Zip line was $10 for one ride. No discounts for additional rides. And it was a short ride! Great place. Pricing could be adjusted.
