Staircase. Nearly all of the one million-acre monument is open to campers. If

Campground and the Sunset Campground. Options are more numerous outside the

the Salt Lake City-Provo region. Dutchman Flat is also just outside the ghost

Lava Point Campground
Zion National Park is one of the most popular
parks in the country. Unfortunately, it only has two campgrounds inside: the
South Campground and the Watchman Campground. The park’s third campground is
about an hour and a half north of the area at Lava Point. Campsites have pit toilets
and trash cans, but there’s no drinking water and certainly no showers. Unlike
most national park campgrounds, Lava Point is free, though it’s open only from
May through October.
