Camping: Zion National Park has three campgrounds. South and Watchman Campgrounds are in Zion Canyon. The Lava Point Campground is about a 1-hour drive from Zion Canyon on the Kolob Terrace Road. There are no campgrounds in Kolob Canyons. Camping is permitted in designated campsites, but not in pullouts or parking lots. Camping is popular; all campgrounds are often full by mid-morning. From mid-March through November the campgrounds are full almost every night. Reservations at Watchman Campground(see below) are recommended if you would like to guarantee a camping spot. If you are unable to make a reservation, the earlier in the day you arrive, the better your chance of getting a campsite.

Bryce National Park is just a short drive from Zion. Bryce is one of the ‘mighty 5’ Utah national parks and well worth the trip from Las Vegas.  While some never make it past Zion, Bryce canyon is worth the extra time.

Camping: Bryce Canyon National Park has two campgrounds, North and Sunset, located in close proximity to the visitor center, Bryce Canyon Lodge and the geologic wonder that is the Bryce Amphitheater. Sites fill by early afternoon during the summer months.
