Summer Vacation with Us!
Memorial Day weekend heralds the unofficial start to summer vacation — and Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort is ready to begin the summer adventure with you. Zion Ponderosa is perfect for your family summer vacation — just look at all the adventures we have waiting for you!
Zion Ponderosa’s Kid’s Camp delivers pint-sized adventures for ages 4-11. Our Kid’s Camp counselors deliver a day full of fun, themed activities and crafts, while introducing kids to rock climbing, zip lining, pony rides, the bungee trampoline and more! We end the day swimming in our fantastic outdoor pool. So drop the kids off at Kid’s Camp while you go explore more grown up adventures, like extended hikes and canyoneering, and we’ll make sure the kids have a blast!
Imagine sitting under the stars toasting s’mores around the campfire, or making your own ice cream sundae on Sunday, all while surrounded by the tranquil beauty of Zion. Experience something new every night of your summer vacation at Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort. Our summer recreation lineup includes Monday night Movies Under the Stars, nighttime zip lining barn dancing, Saturday night rodeos and so much more. Check the summer events schedule here.
Wagon Rides and Dutch Oven Dinners
Imagine the creak of the wagon wheels and the scent of worn leather as you roll past stretches of sagebrush along the ponderosa pine lined trail on your way to a hearty Dutch oven dinner. Surrounded by the beauty of Zion National Park, your family will enjoy an Old West experience, complete with Dutch Oven dining. This is a unique experience offered only at Zion Ponderosa during summer.
