Are the campsites full? Stay with us!   

The original idea for Zion's Camp and Cottages was to provide a space for campers when the Park was full. Well the city did not want me to do that, so we came up with something even better. We have now built 24 bunkhouses on three acres. It is still in the city, but not on the main highway. They are really more like hotel


Are the campsites full? Stay with us!   

The original idea for Zion's Camp and Cottages was to provide a space for campers when the Park was full. Well the city did not want me to do that, so we came up with something even better. We have now built 24 bunkhouses on three acres. It is still in the city, but not on the main highway. They are really more like hotel rooms than bunkhouses with a king size bed and a set of bunk beds. It is the setting and peacefulness that really sets us apart from both hotels and campgrounds.

Our property is a little under three acres. Each bunkhouse has a king sized bed and a set of bunk beds (pillows included).  Each also has a full bathroom, TV, WiFi, full size fridge, microwave, and AC/Heat. They also include a hair dryer, blender, crockpot, toaster, rice cooker, coffee maker, and cooler for your use.

We’ve made an effort to make the property as environmentally friendly as possible.  The property is powered by 96 solar panels which is enough to supply all the energy we need.  The water heaters in the bunkhouses are electric (no natural gas required) and each bunkhouse has a high efficiency air conditioner and heater that are super efficient and quiet, to make your stay as comfortable and as low impact as possible.  The buildings are also outfitted with high efficiency LED lighting to reduce energy consumption. We also use “green” cleaning supplies and cleaners to lessen the impact on humans and the environment. We’ve made linens optional which will also reduce resources dedicated to laundering sheets and towels.  The water for the lawn and plants is pressurized irrigation water which does not take away from the culinary drinking water in the area.

The bunkhouses are set up with two per building, so if you have a larger group you can rent two units and use the connecting door.

This is a beautiful piece of land with a grove of large cottonwood trees as its centerpiece. We are constantly improving the property by adding more plants and trees to attract birds and other wildlife. Outside you will find hammock posts for you to set up your own hammock and enjoy the stars. We try to have minimal outdoor lighting to preserve the tranquility of the night sky. We also have a communal food prep area where you can set up your own camp stove or use one of the several charcoal or propane barbecues onsite, on a first come, first serve basis (charcoal is not provided, propane is).

We have laundry facilities that are available during designated hours for a small fee per load. Available times are posted at the office.

We are located off the main highway, so it is relatively quiet. The neighborhood is a mixture of older homes and newer ones. La Verkin is a small town located about 20 minutes from the entrance to Zion National Park. The scenery on the short trip to Zion is beautiful. We have a great grocery store, a couple of gas stations and an excellent coffee shop. We are also located next to Hurricane, which has fast food places, Walmart, movie theatre, restaurants etc. If you need more than that, we are about 25 minutes from St. George, which has much more.

If you are also going to Bryce National Park, you will have a drive of a little over two hours. Many of our guests use our place as a home base to visit both of these amazing parks. Bryce is a little more isolated than our area and that seems to be one of the reasons they use La Verkin as a base of operations.

When you visit Southern Utah, you are guaranteed to see spectacular sights with plenty of places to go and things to do. We hope you stay with us and then return again, like countless guests before you.

    This place was amazing! Our first stay there and we cant wait to go back! EXTREMELY clean! Was perfect for my husband and our 2 kiddos. The kids loved the bunkbeds. The beds are firm but to us they were comfortable and pillows were fluffy. A.c. worked great. All four 4 us showered back to back and didnt run out of hot water. We had a toaster, coffee pot, rice cooker, tiny crock pot, plates, silverware, condiments, grilling supplies, and more. We definitely over packed because we didnt know so much would be there. We also read online linens were optional, so we brought our own and again we didnt need too. Theirs were very clean. They also provided shower gel, conditioner, and shampoo(we brought our own). There was multiple grills to use. Gravel parking lot with a decent amount of space. Lots of lawn space for kids to play! They have one big firepit. I do wish they had a second. If they had a pool, I honestly might never leave! It was so peaceful and relaxing. All the other guests were friendly and courteous. We did not meet the owners while we were there. It was a little more in the suburbs than expected. I thought we were going to be in the middle of no where but it was still fantastic! No far from lake sand hollow or quail creek. We went to quail creek and it was great. Water was warm amd no swimmers itch there- site for sand hollow warned about swimmers itch so we decided to pass on that.

    8A Lots of hot water!
