One of the keys to a successful family reunion is finding a location with something for the whole clan. Here at Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort we’ve got it all: camp for the kids, canyoneering and ATVing for the cousins, guided adventures and great views for the grandparents, hiking for the whole family, and even an on-site spa so mom can relax with her sisters after a fun day of sightseeing at Zion National Park. Add in spectacular views and a variety of accommodations for every relative’s budget, and you’ve found your perfect family reunion location!
Zion Ponderosa’s 4,000-acre ranch resort is located on the eastern border of Zion National Park. Set amongst pinion and ponderosa pines and juniper trees, our ranch resort even has a hiking trail to Zion’s Observation Point for one of the best views in southwestern Utah. Imagine your family reunion photo with this as a backdrop!
Nothing to do? Not at Zion Ponderosa! We can organize fun for the whole family, including guided ATV and Jeep tours, horseback rides, hiking shuttles, paintball games, canyoneering tours, and fishing trips. Zion Ponderosa boasts an outdoor pool, hot tub, volleyball and tennis courts, horseshoe pits, a Frisbee golf course, climbing wall, an archery range, plus billiards, ping pong and foosball tables (even teens won’t get bored when you host your family reunion at Zion Ponderosa!). We also have excellent hiking trails and, brand new this year, single-track mountain biking trails. Then, melt away the day’s adventures in our on-site Juniper Spa (advance reservations required). The whole family can gather in our 80-person conference room, or under our large outdoor pavilion for even larger groups. We can even supply A/V equipment so you can showcase the year in review.
For the kids
Let the cousins bond at Zion Ponderosa Kid’s Camp (available during the summer months) with a variety of exciting, educational, and challenging activities designed for ages 4-11. While the grown-ups go exploring, our camp counselors will lead the kiddos through a fun day of themed activities. Kids will learn about Zion, be challenged to the top of the climbing wall, make crafts, swim in our resort pool, and more!
Forget about conventional hotel rooms. When you choose Zion Ponderosa for your family reunion, you’ll find Zion lodging options to match the experience — and your budget. Our 4,000-acre ranch resort offers everything from tents to luxury mountain homes, and everything in between. If you’re looking to keep your entire family under one roof, consider one of our private mountain lodges. We have a total of 22 vacation homes: four in the Zion Ponderosa section and 18 in the Zion Ridge section. In your own private vacation home you’ll truly feel like you’re getting away from it all, with unparalleled views of East Zion and all of the amenities you could want. Our lodges vary in size and amenities, so you can find one just the right size for your family reunion. Our Cabin Suites accommodate up to six guests, with a private bedroom, full bathroom, and private front porch. For a more rustic experience, choose a Cowboy Cabin or Western wagon, for memories the kids will brag about for years! You can also tent camp or RV on our property — great options for large families who love the great outdoors.
Feeding the Family
You can rent a luxury vacation home with meal service, or you can bring your own groceries and cook with the fam. Zion Ponderosa’s cabins and tent sites all have outdoor grills for dining with a view. Our on-site restaurant offers a great reprieve after a long day of activity and adventure. Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort is also happy to cater delicious meals for your family reunion or for you to take on your guided tours or hikes. We also offer delicious western style dutch oven dinners and wagon rides during the summer months. How’s that for fun?
