Great park to visit with kids. The hoodoos and sites are amazing.
Do the Mule/ Horse Ride . We were first times and enjoyed the ride. The best way to see the park in summer since it takes you to sections that are too long to hike with kids. Do the Navajo loop its fun. Our kids are 12 and 10, and they loved it. Go for a ranger led Star Gazing program if they have one.
Meals: Two options. The restaurant at the lodge which is very good and a Pizza/ Coffee shop.
Beautiful - This is different and more quiet than the main Zion park. We started off here before going to Springdale. Nice short hike at sunset at the end of the trail
