Zion National Park 
RV Vacation Idea: Zion National Park 



Now is a great time to make plans to visit Zion National Park, located in southern Utah.  The park's 229 square miles cover a wide array of terrain, including mountains, towering cliffs, rivers, mesas, buttes, slot canyons and natural arches.  Spring wildflowers bloom from April through June, usually peaking in May.


The park offers a wide variety of activities, including backpacking, hiking, bird and animal watching, horseback riding, and the opportunity for spectacular photography!


There are two campgrounds within the park, and one just an hours drive on Kolob Terrace Road. Check out the page on camping for more information.    

If your travels take you to the park via the east entrance (Hwy 9), please be aware that it will require an escort through the Zion-Mt. Carmel Tunnel.  There is a $15 fee for this escort and it is mandatory.  Please check out the page on the website for more information.

The closest El Monte RV rental location is in Salt Lake City, Utah. However, if starting your trip from another location is more convenient, we also have many other rental offices, so please visit our locations map to find a location that may be more suitable.
