Just Ducky...
Welcome to iRV2! I am sure you will find many forum members will give you all sorts of advise... about campgrounds or anything else you may want to know!

You will find this park review by "tapd" along with many others at the Campground Reviews area here on iRV2. (There is a link at the top of the page that reads "CG Reviews")

I hope you enjoy your trip to Utah...I think it has some beautiful scenery there.

Again...welcome to iRV2...we hope you visit & post often.

JustDucky,

Call the very nice folks at Temple View RV Resort. We're only 39' but had no trouble. It is a nice CG.

Just Ducky,
Welcome to iRV2....
check out Zion River Park, this rv park is big rig friendly and is close to Zion National Park and St. George. We stayed here couple of years ago.

I believe at Temple View you will have to park out in what looks like a parking lot. We stayed there in "05 and all the big rigs (ours is 36) had to stay outside what I would call the actual park, in a gravel lot just left of the entrance road..

We have a review of Temple View and Zion River Resort in the campground review section here at iRV2.

We would find another location other than Temple View should we go through St George again. But then, we like Kodachrome Basin SP near Bryce, and your 45'er won't fit well there

Welcome , have fun here , and happy trails .

HEY M&M...thank you for the plug
I missed it the first time through

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.

Hi,

We have stayed at Temple View but were in the main section, it was fine. If you want to travel another 30 minutes further west, I would suggest the Casablanca Casino RV campground. It was only $16 for full hook-ups last year but is a small campground. Another one is across the street at the Oasis Casino but we have never stayed there. In addition on the eastern side in Arizona, Desert Skies Rv Resort seems quite nice but again we have never stayed there.

My wife and I stay at Zion River RV Resort, in Virgin, Utah, about 30 mins. from St. George. We've looked at many of the resorts there and we like Zion River the best. It's a first class resort and run as a first class operation. Their phone number is 800-838-8594. Be sure to ask for one of the big-rig sites. We think it's the nicest resort in Utah. Check out the Shakespearean Festival in nearby Cedar City while staying in SW Utah. You can order tickets on-line at Bard.org

We stayed at Temple View in St. George just two months ago in May of '08. We have a 41' motorhome with two slides and had no problem getting into a space in what I would call the main part of the park. Perhaps when Tom and Patty stayed there it was just full, or they have upgraded the park since then. When we stayed there, it was just for one night as we were heading north, but it seemed like a place I would be willing to stay again.

Mike and Pam, you are right on. Zion River Resort is one of the best campgrounds in the area. Big rigs, no problem, and they brought a phone right to our rig.

We've stayed at both. At Temple view if your're staying more than one night they will put you in the main section. Typically, the gravel sites are for overnighters. We were there about 8 months ago but I hear that they may have upgraded the sites. The roads are a little narrow but not really a problem. Can get a little exciting when leaving and someones toad is parked on the street or only part way into the space. Very convenient if you're visiting St. George.

Zion River is about 30 minutes east of St. George and about 15 minutes from the south entrance of the park. VERY nice facility and wonderful quiet setting. All spaces are pull-thru and while the roads are a little narrow you wont have a problem in a large MH. It's in the boonies but lots of places to eat on the way to the park. The Virgin river is on one side of the park and coupled with the view of the mountains make this a great park. Zion is about $5.00 more per night.

Zion River is my first choice if I'm visiting the park and then traveling east. We have relatives in St. George and sometimes stay at Temple View but the few extra minutes it takes to get to Zion River is worth it.

There are a few others in Leeds and Hurricane but we have not stayed there.
