    It should be free, when there’s no water or electric.

    Dont stay at any of those locations if you want to visit zion. Stay at Smithsonian Butte Road near Rockville, or North Creek Road near Virgin. Those places will save you up to 50 miles round trip from the South Entrance. There is very little of the park to see at the East and North entrances.

    Great recommendations. We weren’t using Campendium when we last visited so we ended up just winging it like you for a couple days.

    You folks are great. How about a video on the places around Yellowstone and Grand Tetons. And Glacier up in Montana.

  15. Mark Thomas on May 18, 2020 at 4:42 pm

    Hope more videos come up for Utah places. Good video!

  17. Wo Guan on May 18, 2020 at 4:47 pm

    Great video. Thanks. We’re planning to go with a RV this June. I have a question for your expertise. Do you recommend driving our RV to the visitor center, park there and take the shuttle around the park, and then leave the park with our RV and stay overnight at one of these free camp sites you stated in the video? Do they allow us to park our RV at the visitor center during the day, but not staying overnight?

  18. HighlanderMikeGolf on May 18, 2020 at 4:47 pm

    Awesome video…just watching it memes me want to get the rig out and hit the road with my family.

  19. EL SCIENCE on May 18, 2020 at 4:48 pm

    Can Zion Natl Park be accessed (hiked to) from any of these locations without having to use the “main entrance” of the park?

  20. Slim Lundeen on May 18, 2020 at 4:52 pm

    When at the south end always make sure that you are on BLM Land. There is a lot of private land and it is not always posted. The Virgin River Land Preservation Association has posted a comment on the Virgin Dam page. I sent a note off and they were very kind in their response. They are working hard to keep some of the land open for non motorized recreation so are worthy of our respect. If in doubt there is a BLM office in St George 345 East Riverside is the address I have. Love the mountain biking in this area so with our help and consideration we can keep it open.

    Thanks for sharing.

  22. Gary Jones on May 18, 2020 at 4:55 pm

    How safe is it to leave your trailer parked in these places if you’re going into the park for the day?

  23. Doc Holiday on May 18, 2020 at 4:57 pm

    I carry my kayak with me so need a good place to play …sit on top so no wild rapid s 😃

  24. David Dion on May 18, 2020 at 4:57 pm

    Test only. No response please. Thank you.

  25. kris Pedersen on May 18, 2020 at 5:02 pm

    I cannot, for the life of me, find a Campendium app in the Google Play Store. What is the "name" of the app???

  26. David Reyburn on May 18, 2020 at 5:02 pm

    Thanks for making this video! Is there a campendium mobile app for android? I couldn’t find it.
