Zion National Park is open 24 hours per day, every day of the year, and no reservations are required to visit.
From March through late November the shuttle will run daily in Zion Canyon and the town of Springdale. When the shuttle is running no private vehicles are allowed on the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. Plan to use the free shuttle bus. Free shuttles will leave frequently from the Zion Canyon Visitor Center. Schedules are available in our park newspaper.
Watchman Campground is open all year long, but South Campground and Lava Point Campground will close for winter. Generally, reservations are required March through November.
The Zion Lodge is open every day of the year. Reservations are recommended.
