Zion National Park – Springdale, UT

,

What's not to say about Zion? It is a beautiful park located in the southern portion of Utah. There is countless opportunities for adventure for all ages. Note that Zion National Park does use a free shuttle bus system during peak seasons. This may be a bit cumbersome for those traveling with strollers. There are hikes that are flat and paved which are great choices for the newly walking or strollers as well.

There are two campgrounds in Zion Canyon (here the attractions) and there is another called Lava Point Campground located about 1-hour away from Zion Canyon. They do offer reservations at Watchman campground, however, not for "day-of." We arrived in the evening and it was full. Website advises that "...all campgrounds are often full by noon on weekdays and in the morning on weekends. From mid-March through November the campgrounds are full almost every night." We stayed at Zion Canyon Campground (Directory listing available). Note too that many campsites offer little to no shade and it is very warm in the summer.

Note: Only 95 camping spots offer electric - there are no full hook-up sites!

Hikes:
Riverside Walk runs along the Virgin River - it's flat and paved!
Weeping Rock - my favorite from childhood - brief ascent to a overhand of a rock that weeps water over verdant ferns
Emerald Pools - Another childhood favorite where you hike to a few emerald green pools. Slight ascent but easy

Red Rocks Grill at Zion Lodge - Open for for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We decided to skip the picnic on this trip and just eat lunch at the lodge. Troy and I had eaten here before out on the terrace, however, it was closed on this day because of a wasp nest. They do offer a kids menu and the food is good although a little expensive.

Other activities: Have lunch at the Lodge, horseback riding (age limits apply), and Junior Ranger program (age limits apply)
