Description

Not only can you camp at Zion's highest point, but you can also camp there for F-R-E-E! These first-come, first-served sites offer access to the lesser traveled part of Zion Canyon, Kolob Terrace, and Lava Point.

It's also an excellent jumping off point for one of Zion's best hikes: “The Subway." Lava Point Campground is just off of Kolob Terrace Road. It offers pit toilets and trash cans, but is primitive so bring your own water. With golden valley views, and aspens galore, you aren’t going to believe you didn’t pay a dime for this winning spot.

A great little spot! A bit out of the way however you can still expect to find others there as well. I camped out of the peak season and was still a little shocked to find a few others there. It definitely dipped below freezing during my stay but nothing a good sleeping back couldn't handle! You definitely wont be disappointed with the scenery, and Kolob Reservoir is nearby as well!
