Zion National Park is a southwest Utah nature preserve distinguished by Zion Canyon’s steep red cliffs. Zion Canyon Scenic Drive cuts through its main section, leading to forest trails along the Virgin River. The river flows to the Emerald Pools, which have waterfalls and a hanging garden.

Top RV Campsites: Zion National Park’s Watchman Campground Offers Shuttles, Year-Round Sites

From Fodors.com article:

Watchman Campground ZionThe Watchman Campground at Zion National Park fills up months in advance, and for good reason: This massive 176-site campground located a 1/4 mile from the south entrance and visitor center sits in the shadow of the iconic Zion rock formation. Despite its size, there’s enough space between campsites, spread out among six loops, to preserve your camping experience. For something more private try one of the 18 walk-in sites at the campground. In addition to firepits and clean bathrooms with flush toilets, some of the sites have shade trees to relax under after a long, hot day of traversing the The Narrows.
