Escape to Utah’s first national park, where vibrant red, orange, and pink sandstone cliffs and canyons meet bright blue skies and lush desert vegetation.

Zion National Park is a massive nature reserve in southwest Utah covering nearly 230 square miles of land. Choosing where to stay near Zion, which is near the Arizona border, is a huge task. Most visitors opt to stay in nearby Springdale or other smaller locales around the park. You can also stay on the east side of the park near towns like Mount Carmel Junction.

In Springdale, you’ll find convenient free shuttles to Zion that bring visitors to the south entrance in order to avoid the crowded and often full parking lots during peak hours. Shuttles frequently depart throughout the day, about every seven minutes, so you never need to worry about missing one.

The shuttles are fully accessible and will drop you off at the walk-in entrance and fee station. From here, you can jump back on a shuttle for a hop-on, hop-off type tour of the park’s main attractions, hiking trails, lookout points, and picnicking spots.

Here’s a look at 11 of the best Airbnb rentals near Zion National Park for your upcoming trip!
