Zion National Park has three campgrounds. South and Watchman Campgrounds, where reservations are recommended, are in Zion Canyon. The Lava Point Campground is about one-hour drive from Zion Canyon on the Kolob Terrace Road, according to NPS. Zion has become an increasingly popular place to pitch a tent as campsites usually fill up by noon. Mid-March through November is the park’s busiest time.
