    We came in on the east side. This was our first turnout of many. Very interesting and worth a stop for closer inspection.  more »

    It is from the bottom of the canyon by a breathtaking drive scenic. We can do this car ride where to Park to one of the many trails that are available to you where just photographs. In fact, arriving on set more than 1600 meters above sea level you will come across the Mesa Cherckerboard. A precious moment which will crown your visit to Zion.

    Checkboard Mesa is an interesting geological formation. Recommended to have a short stop to view and take a picture if you enter Zion from the east entrance.  more »

Where to stay in Zion National Park

If you want to stay inside Zion National Park, you can choose from three campgrounds or the Zion Lodge, which includes motel rooms, cabins, suites, and a restaurant. Two of the campgrounds sit near the south entrance, while the third lies more isolated about a one-hour drive from Zion Canyon along the Kolob Terrace Road. The gateway town of Springdale just south of the park has a wide range of accommodations. Choose from cozy inns and bed and breakfasts, rustic riverside lodges, and clean and simple motels. If everything's full here, try the nearby towns of Virgin and Hurricane.
