We are new to this RV full timing life style and chose Zion River Resort as our first winter layover (and after staying the 08/09 winter we are returning again this winter season). Every accolade you read in all the reviews is absolutely true. Location, location, location combined with the very, very, very best staff and support people we’ve ever met made our stay one of the best ‘camping’ memories we have in our lives.
Driving from St. George or Cedar City thru Hurricane and Virgin, Utah into Zion River Resort gives you views of astounding and unforgettable beauty. The surrounding crimson cliffs never present the same shades of color as the sun bleaches the area morning, noon and in the evening. We easily changed our space in the park so we could look out our 5th wheel back window and view the Virgin River, mesas, sky and sunsets (all took our breath away).
The RV resort is located within a few minutes to the entrance of Zion National Park. We felt as if we were stepping into another world of the astounding beauty of this area as we easily explored all there is to see. All of Zion River Resort’s amenities were top notch, clean and highly maintained which greatly reflects the owners, manager, and staffs personal commitment to keep this park at the best anyone would find. But what really made this a great time for us were the snowbirds themselves plus the nightly get-togethers and weekly functions planned by the management and support by the staff.
We played WII games, attended movies (popcorn included), sampled wine (different teas for us non-drinkers) and cheese, plus had plenty to eat at the weekly banquets, not to mention plenty of great conversations. We went with a group of hiking snowbirds (beginning hikers ourselves) and visited some local trails complete with narratives we would not have found by ourselves. We developed lifelong friendships from within this group of crazy RV people and carry memories with us each and every day.
We had a great time at a great place with breathtaking scenic beauty, managed by fantastic caring people surrounded by extraordinary snowbirds. This makes us look forward in going back in the future.
