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.

Dirty and Unsafe

I had really high hopes for this place. We stayed one night in a cabin suite, as a scouting expedition before we decided whether to rent their huge "Moose Lodge" for a family reunion next year. I'm so glad we checked it out before spending over $10,000! There are tons of amenities, a good restaurant, and lots of excursion options, but our cabin was dirty and had lots of spider webs. Most alarming, however, was that I was in the cabin alone when a man unexpectedly walked in. The door locks automatically, but he must have had the code. He didn't knock or otherwise identify himself, he just said "Sorry," and left. It really shook me up. The manager on duty thought it was probably housekeeping, just said she'd "tell the housekeeping manager." No follow-up, and she didn't even apologize. I wonder if it was a botched burglary attempt, because my car wasn't parked out front, and there was another person in the man's vehicle who never got out; if it was housekeeping, wouldn't she have gotten out, too? I can overlook some dirt and bugs (especially in this gorgeous environment), but feeling unsafe is something I can't ignore. Beyond disappointed.

Pros- property was beautiful. Cabin clean and new. Activities on sight easy to sign up. Cons-mattresses on the bunk neds were like sleeping on bubble wrap. HUGE hair ball in pool got stuck on my foot.
