We stayed at Watchman Campground this past weekend (Aug 12-13).
It's the campsite inside the actual National Park. I was worried that it was going to be really crowded, but it wasn't too bad, and the sign said the campground was full. It was very clean, the bathrooms were clean, the sites were reasonably spaced apart, which was nice. We stayed at LoopC-17 and it was right next to the bathroom. I wanted convenience, but I didn't realize how close it was. So just keep that in mind when booking. I loved how we just walked from our site directly to the Zion Center, and to the Zion Canyon strip with stores. I felt it was very convenient. We showered at Zion Outfitters, very clean showers. The night photo I posted, is right from our campsite. Beautiful.

Watchman Campground is located on a bench above North Fork Virgin River .4 miles north of Springdale and just south of the South Campground. Watchman Campground's 170 campsites include fire pits, picnic tables, and water, as well as central bathrooms with flush toilets and a central dump station. The campground is partly shaded and provides great views into Zion National Park. Laundry, groceries, and gas are all available within one mile of the campground. Watchman campground is closed from November through March. There are no RV hookups.Please enjoy the campsite photos of Watchman campground.  We will continue to add more campsite photos of the campground if some are not available.

Awesome location for camping! We showed up at the last minute to camp with our pop-up after being turned away from a commercial location outside the park. We are so happy to have stayed here instead, it's a beautiful location right under the mountains in Zion. The only drawback is there are no showers, which was okay for us as we were only here for one night. It should also be noted that we were there in March and the place was packed, so make reservations if you can!

What a gorgeous campground! We were lucky to snap up a cancellation and reserved spot B-060 for four nights in mid-November. It’s convenient to walk to the visitor center where you can catch the shuttle to most of the trailheads. You can also easily walk into town or catch the Springdale bus. So convenient!

Being one of the more luxurious campgrounds found in a National Park, this place fills up quick! Don't expect to just arrive and find a spot. There were already people lined up to get in the campground at 5am on a Sunday morning in mid October to stay that night! Nearby Springdale is much like a resort town so the commercial campgrounds, hotels, and BnB's were all sold out when we arrived in the evening. Reservations long in advance are highly recommended!

Great camp ground. Would make it 5 star if it had full hook up. Although electric was fabulous as it was 110 degrees. Air conditioning was God sent after hiking. Perfect location. You are in the park and walking distance to visitor center and shuttle that takes you to most hiking locations.

Nice campground for both tents and RVs. Close to the river where you can walk to and hangout in. There is a grocery store close by and a restaurant and bar. The campground doesn't have showers but the restrooms are decent. There are showers in town that cost about $5. Overall it's a good place to stay while visiting Zion.
