  • We had seen a magazine article about this town and decided if we had time we would visit. So glad we made time to stop by. This was a really neat place. The farm homes are in good condition. The build...  more »
  • I visited many years ago because I knew it was the location of the film Butch Cassidy with Paul Newman and Robert Redford. I had asked for information on the street because there was no sign that the indicated! We arrived via a dirt road in good condition, I don't know if now the road has been paved. Impressive place, with old cemetery and some constructions used in the film. It is worth to go there!

  • even if the directions is something exhausting about a dirt "road" (don't go in the rain), worth the detour. No kitsch for tourists, but three beautifully restored houses and other buildings in unrestored condition (comparisons with images in Google Earth before restoration). Very interesting is also the small cemetery, which testifies to the hard times 150 years ago.

  • Fun place to spend an evening. The sunset is amazing.
  • Although this had a very ere feeling, it was so cool to see a ghost town! It wasn't like a traditional one that you see in the movies but, it was very cool to see what one actually looked like! I would recommend visiting if you are ever looking for something to do on a day without anything planned!
  • I lived less than a mile from here, in a cabin on top of the mesa overlooking Rockville, 1978. This spot is one of my favorite things to show friends and family when we drive through Utah. A cool bit of film history happened in Grafton ghost town...it's featured in the movie "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid". It's remote and most tourists miss the little turn-off or do not know it exists, I've never run into a tourist here. The headstones are cool and worth the time to drive off highway. Very scenic area!
  • Beautiful
  • Interesting side trip. Well preserved.

Where to stay in Springdale

For a town of its size, Springdale is home to a surprising number of lodgings. Nearly all of the area's hotels are located on the same street, Zion Park Boulevard. As the town's main thoroughfare, this road offers both proximity to the nearby national park and the town's stores and eateries. You'll find that the area's bed and breakfasts and vacation rentals are slightly more spread out, but they are still within easy walking distance of the boulevard.
