Zion National Park

Awestruck, delighted, intense, on a different planet — visitors to Zion National Park point out the park’s majesty in colorful, profound ways. No wonder it is one of the most visited national parks year after year. It’s a true geographic phenomenon. 

The iconic Zion National Park stands proudly at the intersection of three major ecosystems—the Mojave Desert, the Colorado Plateau, and the Great Basin.  From the top of Angels Landing to the bottom of The Narrows, this desert oasis is filled with opportunity. Here, you can awaken your adventurous spirit, satisfy your craving for exploration, and converge with something bigger than yourself among Zion’s reverent cliff faces. 

Find recreation ranging from leisurely hiking to intense rock climbing and off-road cruising to canyoneering. 

Once-in-a-lifetime experiences happen just outside of the park, too. The gateway town of Springdale and other Greater Zion cities offer Zion National Park travelers luxurious hotels, quaint campgrounds, or a mix of both when you’re ready to kick up your feet.

Come, be amazed, and immerse yourself in the wonder that is Zion National Park.
