We took the tunnel thru with our RV and it was just an awesome view looking down in, it cost us and we were escorted along with some others.

Is Zion NP strict about 50' length to enter the east entrance. In 2007 we arrived at the E entrance with our Chevy 3500 p/u & 5th wheel. I knew we were about 51' but told the lady at the entrance booth we were about 49'. She pulled out the measuring tape and checked our length. Since we were over 50' we had to turn around. In retrospect, would there have been a different out come if I played dumb and said I didn't know how long we were?

Can't wait to see Zion!

For those that “don’t mind” making reservations we highly recommend Watchman Campground for Zion Park access. It’s not about the campground, it’s about Zion National Park. Our “big rig” was fine in Watchman and convenient to the required buses, actually trams, for access to the park interior providing lots of day hiking opportunities. The bus system in Zion works very well and I’m not one that cares for busses. You can also walk to town from the campground if you choose. Don’t miss this park if you are in the area and use the south entrance for sure with large RV’s.


Very glad to see that you are planning on spending some quality time in Zion. Many great hikes there, but the one I would suggest you consider would be the one to Angel's Landing. In 40+ years of hiking the southwest, it easily makes the top 10 most memorable dayhikes for me. If you decide to try it, be sure to get there as early in the morning as possible. The trail is popular and narrow in places and an early start will reduce the amount of wait time in the narrow spots. Enjoy the park!
