We just got back from Spring Break at Zion Ponderosa Resort, and had the best time! I am constantly feeling amazed by the beauty of Utah, and feel so lucky to live in such an incredible state! Utah is home to 5 National Parks! How cool is that?! We love to take advantage of the diverse scenery of our home state. There is nothing like the beauty of Southern Utah! It is so unique and grand, and other worldly! Did you know that all fourth graders in the country get a free National Parks pass? Our oldest is in fourth grade, and we have loved taking advantage of the Every Kid in a Park program! When we visit the National Parks in Utah, it is so cool to see so many people from all over the world visiting! I love that they too recognize it’s unique beauty!
Our family loves spending time together in the mountains and nature. Hiking is one of our favorite things to do together! It challenges us, strengthens us, we cheer each other on, chat about life, and breathe in that fresh air! It energizes our souls, and brings us closer together as a family. The mountains always heal me from my worries, and I’m always grateful to have them cradling me and helping to guide us through the key moments of our lives!
This trip to Zion National Park we loved staying at Zion Ponderosa Resort tucked away in the mountains just East of the Park! It was our first time there, and it won’t be our last! It is a little hidden gem, with so many fun family friendly activities to do, and a variety of lodging to accommodate any size family and their needs! The property offers tent camping sites, RV spots, conestoga wagons, glamping tents, cozy cabin suites, and even large vacation mountain cabin rentals. Some of the vacation cabin rentals even sleep up to 40 people, which would be perfect for a family reunion!
We stayed in one of their beautiful Vacation Mountain Cabin Home Rentals called Grandma’s Place. It was a beautiful cabin home with 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms, and a playroom! There was a fully stocked full kitchen and family room, and we had more than enough room to spread out and enjoy ourselves cuddled up in mountains of Zion! My kids enjoyed picking their rooms, especially the bunk room, and playing hide and seek in the spacious cabin! I always love having a vacation rental that feels like home with access to a full kitchen, laundry, and multiple rooms so we feel more at home! I couldn’t recommend it enough! We had such a good time!
Zion National Park holds a very special place in our hearts. We have been going ever since our kids were babies, and we have enjoyed the area, explored as a family, hiked, and enjoyed all it has to offer for many years! We had so much fun discovering a few more fun family activities during this trip to Zion, and I can’t wait to share them all with you! Read more for some favorite Family Activities in the area!
