Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The resort was very nice and had tons of amenities. The location is the best you can get. The resort is right outside of Zion National Park and only takes a few minutes to get there. We stayed in a cabin and it was perfect for our family of 4. Our kids enjoyed playing putt putt, swimming and roasting marshmallows. I highly recommend staying here!

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This resort is trying to do everything and doing nothing well. The cabin was dirty & it was poorly maintained at every turn, and the restaurant…ugh! Shortly after arriving, we stopped into the restaurant to check out the menu, and were told they weren't serving from the menu because they had had a big event over the weekend and were doing a buffet of pulled pork, chicken, and brisket, mac and cheese, a salad bar and dessert. Didn't sound very appealing to us, but considering we were at least a half hour from any other place we decided to try it. Once we seated ourselves, we went to check out the "buffet" - joke is the first word that comes to mind. While the "salad bar" didn't have a lot of variety, it turned out to be the best part of the meal. The “pulled” menu was prewrapped sandwiches (fast food style), the mac and cheese looked like glue, and the dessert was rock hard cookies. As if this wasn’t bad enough, the “plates” were paper to go containers and plastic utensils. I was surprised the beer was actually served in a real glass. And all this (2 buffets and 2 beers) for just under $60! Absolutely crazy! The next day we asked to see the menu and again were told that they didn’t know if they’d be serving from it – apparently they hadn’t gotten rid of enough leftovers yet. Needless to say, we drove about a half hour to Mt. Carmel and had a fabulous meal at the Thunderbird. Don’t waste your time or money on this resort – we wish we hadn’t.

It was so much fun! The staff were so friendly and helpful and my kids had so much fun with their activities. Their breakfast buffet is to die for as well! The pool is gorgeous and it’s very close to Zion. We stayed on a cabin and it was quite comfortable for our family of five. Excited to go back!

Will be back!
Loved the glamping. Didn’t realize there was not a good proximity to town (had to go through Zion NP) and the store did not have many food supplies so had to rely on restaurant which it was a bit pricey. Great facility! Loved our time
