hearing the creak of the wagons and breathing in the smell of leather, sagebrush and ponderosa pine as you roll along the trail on your way to a hearty Dutch oven dinner surrounded by the beauty of the Zion National Park area. At Zion Ponderosa we invite you to be a part of the true American western experience on our wagon ride and Dutch oven dinner excursion. Everyone from the youngest to the oldest will enjoy escaping the traffic and the crowds and taking a moment to relax and enjoy nature the way the folks of the old west used to do. We understand that many people wish to have a genuine outdoor experience but cannot spend the time or don't have the gear to undertake a long expedition. Our wagon ride and Dutch oven dinner is the perfect solution for those nature lovers who just need a short escape.
Dutch Oven Dinner

The role of the covered wagon
in winning and settling the West is well known. In our re-created pioneer wagon you will have much the same experience as the early settlers. Our gentle Belgian horse team will pull your wagon through stretches of sagebrush and groves of pines until you begin to smell the campfire and delicious Dutch oven dinner. After dinner you will return by wagon to the resort. Our wagon ride and dutch oven dinner is a great way to relive history as you travel through some of the most scenic areas in Southern Utah. Call for details!
