Beautiful place close to everything but still secluded. Grass under my tent kept everything clean. Full picnic table with electric outlet and water just for me. Hiking trails right next to camp were great. Clean bathrooms with showers made it easy. A great place to camp!

The base camp looked nice on the internet and was a great alternative to other campgrounds in the area that fill-up fast. However, when we arrived from Las Vegas, we hadn't received the gate code, so the gate was locked and took us a while to get in - so make sure you have the gate code prior to arrival.
Unfortunately, about 11:30 pm, the sprinklers came on and soaked our scouts and their sleeping gear. We scrambled to figure out how to avoid the sprinklers. We ended up parking our vehicles in a wall to stop the sprinklers and ended up moving our tarps and sleeping bags to the road for the rest of the night to avoid the sprinklers.
We thought we'd have access to regular restroom, however, there were portable toilets (which was ok); however, they were very 'ripe' and appeared not to have been cleaned recently.
We will most likely look for some other alternatives for our next campsite as use this as a last resort.

Hi Jerel, I've also responded privately, but again, thank you for your feedback and apologies for the inconvenience. We discovered why you didn't receive the gate code and bathroom access code and taken steps to prevent that future communication disconnect. We were not aware the sprinklers had been turned on for the season, but we have also taken measures to fix that for future Hipcampers. We are again very sorry for the inconveniences to you and your Scouts and hope the rest of your trip was amazing! If you are open to giving us another chance, we would love to have you visit again! Until then, happy camping! Zion Base Camp

The gate code that was provide didn’t work. Luckily there was a car behind us that knew the code, which was a different one than the one we were given. The bathrooms/showers were great! The campsite was quiet and safe. I would come back here again.

Our stay was much better this time. The staff corrected all of our previous issues. We found the campsite in very nice condition and pleasant. The restrooms and showers were extremely clean. The area was beautiful. We loved having electrical outlets right at the campsite. We will definitely stay there again.

My friend and I chose Zion base camp because the facilities were ADA accessible,a short drive to Zion,freeway access/close to gas stations/stores and it was affordable. The camp is also located next to Quail Creek!,perfect for biking and getting out on the water. Our host Stephanie did a great job w/ her property and she was very communicative and responsive. The bathrooms were heated,clean and had great water pressure.

The campground was great! Aside from a number of bugs (just a reality in the desert summer), our stay was perfect. The concrete pads at each site have running water, a huge picnic table, a nice fire pit, and even an electric outlet. The bathrooms were clean and we certainly appreciated hot water and flush toilets as a relative luxury. The site was easy to find and felt secure. Only one other group was there (a group of scouts) on July 4th weekend, despite the fact that it was the busiest weekend in the park all year.

Facilities were very nice. No shade, so in summer you woild need to bring a shade. The river is not close to the camp and there are no aigns pointing a trail to it. In summer, it's too hot for no ahade and a hike to the water. Other than that, a nice camp alternative.
