We loved our stay at Zion Ponderosa! We stayed in a glamping tent, which was so cozy, even in a few heavy thunderstorms. The bathroom/shower house was a little far to walk to (especially if you had to go in the middle of the night), but getting to be in nature in a tent was such a treat! The staff were all so welcoming, and the atmosphere of the entire property was great. It felt a little like summer camp. We also loved that they had electric vehicle chargers centrally located on the property! We were charged up and ready to hit the park. We highly recommend this stay if you’re planning a trip to Zion!

Great place, not great with allergies

We had a great time at Zion Ponderosa Ranch! We did a glamping tent and everything was clean and comfortable. We had a super intense storm one night and had no issues with leaks or anything. It was just loud but quite an experience! The pool and hot tub was nice. My kids loved the water slides. Kids also LOVED playing mini golf with light up golf balls. Great location with gorgeous entrance through Zion's east entrance. You do need to leave by 7/730am to find a parking space in Zion's visitor center for shuttle. Our only issue was with food. I have gluten allergy and my kids have dairy, soy, gluten. We had success in evening with staff making them plain burger patties and gave discount. But in breakfast we were told things were gluten free, but then next day told they were not. I did end up glutened and sick. I will say Glenn, a chef one AM, was wonderful and made kids safe breakfast. However the next day the chef was not willing to do so. This was our only issue and was an issue l through every park. :) But overall great place and we would stay again. Activities: scenic drives through Zion, Narrows, and Emerald Pools.

The best experience for our family vacation!!

The cabin suite was perfect for our family of 6! It was so nice to walk into our cabin from a hot day to blaring air-conditioning. The hot breakfast was a huge plus for our hungry bellies, especially so that we didn’t have to pull out our stove and cookware! The resort activities were a huge plus! We truly enjoyed our stay!!!! We would definitely stay again!

Great family resort outside of Zion

We stayed in a Conestoga wagon for 3 nights, did a couple of East Zion Adventure tours (guided hike and keep tours) which are available on the property, and spent time relaxing by the pool. Only downside is that it is about a 20-minute drive up and over the mountain to the nearest town of Springdale and to Zion National Park. The mountainous Mount Carmel drive is very scenic, through a mile-long tunnel and the resort amenities outweigh the distance. The resort has 1 restaurant and breakfast was free with our wagon stay, but we drove to Springdale for shopping and more dining options.

RV patrons - Go somewhere ELSE!!!

They are 19 miles and 45 minutes from Zion National Park Visitor Center. They told me on the phone they were 2 miles from the park. NOT TRUE. We were yelled at the moment we pulled up with our travel trailer. There were no signs on where to park or go but DON'T park in front of the door that says "check in". It was very expensive for an RV park yet our site was dirty with garbage and food scraps when we got there. All the trailers and RVs are right on top of each other in the hot sun. Bathrooms were marginal at best and neighbors were running OHVs around until late and in the dark. Their refund/cancellation policy is NO. So do yourself a favor and DON'T STAY HERE.
