    A beautiful park, but some logistics problems on very busy days. We traveled here on the day after Thanksgiving 2014, and the park was extremely busy. All parking lots were full and we were required to park about 1/2 mile outside of the park in Springdale. There is a free shuttle to the pedestrian entrance that goes into town. The park had also shut down the scenic road to all traffic except their free shuttle. The shuttles came every 5-10 minutes but it still wasn’t enough with large, disorganized crowds of people all trying to get in the shuttles. When we were done for the day and trying to get back to the visitor center, five completely full shuttles passed us by and we were forced to wait about 45 minutes for an empty shuttle to come directly to our stop. The park was stunningly beautiful and requires several days of exploration to see the sights, but I will do my best to return during a slower season so I can explore at my own speed.

    All true outdoorsmen must have Angels Landing and the Narrows hikes on your list. Spectacular. Nice scenic drives. Springdale is a neat town as well. I did this in January, so there were no crowds, and the dry suit made the Narrows hike even more special.

    Nature at some of its most dramatic. If you like red rocks, you will love southern Utah. Don’t miss Bryce Canyon, and the many other sites in the area.Unless things have changed, be sure to bring your own wine or beer, since sales facilities were very limited in southern Utah, due to Mormon influence.

    Pros: The park is nice.Cons: The experience was TERRIBLE!!! The National Park Service appears to be more interested in making a buck than protecting one of America’s treasures. On Thursday October 9, 2014 at 10:00a, the Visitor Center parking lot was full. Not a space to be found – on a Thursday in the off-season no less. (What do you think it would be like in the summertime?) The experience within the park was no better. Traffic was heavy and continuous and consisted of campers, RVs, huge motor coaches and too many enormous tour buses to count. If you park in a roadside pull-off, be prepared to be overwhelmed with tourists and diesel fumes. Why does the NPS allow these huge vehicles to navigate such a slow and winding road? It appears the campground and parking lot have been enlarged in recent years, which further clogs the park. Again, decisions seem to be made based on revenue, not for what’s best for the park or its visitors. If you’re looking to enjoy the peace and serenity of the great outdoors, you won’t find it in Zion. In the end, I cannot recommend Zion National Park to any of my friends or family.
