This year we’re having the Zion Half Marathon on the east side of the park! This is an exciting opportunity to change things up a bit, while some construction happens on the road in Springdale. We know this is changing things up for you, so here’s some extensive information on where to find lodging on the east side.
[nzs_heading heading=”5″] The Closest Options [/nzs_heading]
Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort has blocked off all lodging for race weekend to make booking easier for our runners! This will be a great place to stay during the race, as the race will be starting on site. They have a wide variety of lodging options including Vacation Homes, Cabins, RVs, and camping. Book online or call 1-800 293-5444. Just mention that you are with the Half Marathon, and their reservation team will take care of you and book the stay, based on availability.
Another excellent place in the area is Zion Mountain Ranch. Very close to both the start and finish, they offer a wide variety of cabins, perfect for your stay at Zion. Learn more on their website.
Zion Park RV and Campground
Aside from being right at the finish line, Zion Park RV and Campground is a great place to camp, especially if you’re staying long term. On site they have showers, bathrooms, and a laundry room if you need it. Full RV hookups are available and they’re right at the east entrance of Zion!
[nzs_heading heading=”5″] Mt Carmel Junction, UT [/nzs_heading]
Just 20 minutes away from the start, Mt Carmel Junction has several hotels and an RV park. This is the closest you can stay to the race, once the options above fill up.
[nzs_heading heading=”5″] Glendale, UT and Orderville, UT [/nzs_heading]
Just north of Mt Carmel Junction on state route 89, are Glendale and Orderville. There you’ll be able to find several motel and B&B options. Expect about a 30 minute drive to the expo and the start line.
[nzs_heading heading=”5″] Kanab, UT [/nzs_heading]
You can find LOTS of lodging options in Kanab, but expect a 40 minute drive to the race expo and start line.
[nzs_heading heading=”5″] South Side [/nzs_heading]
Springdale is still a great place to stay for our 2017 race. They have plenty of hotels, great shops and restaurants, and are right at the park entrance. Expect about a 45 minute drive to the start in the morning if you choose to stay on the west side.
Cable Mountain Lodge is a one minute drive from the entrance of the park. The rooms offer a distinctively warm atmosphere. This is a lodging experience to complement your discovery (or continuing re-discovery) of Zion.
Cliffrose Lodge is back as a host this year! They’re a long-time partner of ours and a great lodging option.
