Glamping at Zion Crest 

If you’re craving an authentic outdoor experience, Zion Crest Campground is for you! With its rugged beauty and proximity to Zion National Park, our campground at Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort allows you to get away from it all and immerse yourself in the great outdoors. Set up your tent under the star-studded sky and wake up surrounded by the beauty of East Zion. 

Your Zion Crest campsite comes with the basics (a picnic table, fire ring, and easy access to restrooms, showers and our two-tier pool) to ensure your comfort while immersing yourself in nature. But, if you’re seeking an elevated outdoor experience, Zion Ponderosa glamping offers the best of both worlds. Or, as we like to playfully say, creature comforts without all the creatures. 

Glamping a.k.a. Luxury Camping

Combining the best of camping and resort-style accommodations, glamping takes your outdoor adventure to a whole new level. And we have a few great options to do just that!

Glamping tents

Imagine waking up to the gentle rustling of leaves and the first rays of sunlight streaming through your canvas tent. Zion Ponderosa’s luxurious tents feature comfortable beds, stylish furnishings, and private bathrooms. These outdoor-luxe accommodations allow you to enjoy the serenity of nature without compromising on modern comforts.

But we don’t just stop with our standard and deluxe glamping tents. We have a range of glamping options to cater to your personal preference and group size!

Conestoga Wagons

Step back in time and experience the allure of the Old West with a stay in a Conestoga wagon. These comfortably appointed wagons provide a unique glamping experience, complete with cozy bedding, rustic charm, and access to modern conveniences. Embrace the nostalgia as you unwind under the starry night sky, and wake up refreshed and ready for a day of East Zion Adventures. 


With scenic views, cozy interiors, and proximity to our resort amenities, the cabins at Zion Ponderosa add another layer to the concept of glamping. Wake up and enjoy a cup of coffee on your private porch while immersing yourself in the tranquility of nature. We offer two types of glamping tents—Cabin Suites and the more rustic Cowboy Cabins. Whether you’re seeking a romantic getaway or a family adventure, Zion Ponderosa’s glamping cabins offer a peaceful retreat where you can unwind after a Zion adventure-filled day.
