Zion National Park is one of five national parks in southern Utah and it has been on our list since we got started on this crazy journey back in July. I can’t believe we’ve been on the road for 9 months… On one hand it feels like we haven’t lived in a normal house in a million years, and on the other hand, it feels like we just started and can’t believe we’re coming to the end very quickly. August will be here before we know it and we’re trying to make the most of every moment.

Back to Zion! So, we camped in Zion National Park and as far as views go it was the coolest campground we’ve stayed in. We only had electric hookups so we had to be very mindful when we used water, and the only showers available (outside of our RV of course) were close, but you had to pay to use them. So we just used ours and ended up going to fill up again just once. We stayed at the park for 4 nights.

  1. This is such a beautiful park, and sounds like amazing hiking trails. I have never visited this park, and will have to try to make a family plan to visit.

    1. Thank you so much! It was a really fun place to go, and not too far of a drive from Vegas airport.

  2. I think I went here before, I hiked to scout lookout (I think that’s what it is called) but I couldn’t go the rest of the way to Angels Landing. I am way too afraid of heights for that lol

    1. Angels Landing definitely had me nervous… I’m not about having to hold a chain while I’m hiking so I don’t slip off! Observation point had some steep dropoffs as well but it was much wider, no chains necessary.
