Where We Camped: Zion Canyon Campground
The Zion Canyon Campgrounds are you standard RV park and campground. For camping, they provide a plot of flat land, a parking space, a picnic table, and a campfire ring. The bathrooms are communal but also well maintained and clean.
We completed the Angel’s Landing and the Lower & Upper Emerald Pools hikes.
Angel’s Landing is known to be one of the most difficult hikes in the states as it has you climbing over boulders, with 1,000 feet drops on both sides with only a 6 foot wide space to hike over. It received it’s name because “only angels could land here.” After completing the Devil’s Garden Loop in Arches National Park, and completing some intense hikes in the Rocky Mountains, we didn’t think Angel’s Landing was that difficult. With that said, I can see how it would be for the average visitor who doesn’t have a work-hike-sleep-repeat lifestyle.
If you chose to complete this hike, PLEASE wear durable shoes and bring plenty of water. I don’t know how many people we passed that attempted the hike in flip flops and only carrying a small bottle of water. Remember you are in the high desert – if the altitude doesn’t get you, the heat surely will.
