Our ranch resort even has access to Zion National Park’s Observation Point, voted the best view in Utah by ‘Backpacker Magazine.’ We can also arrange river rafting and paintball adventures for your group.

For a more laid-back experience, choose from Zion Ponderosa’s many fun amenities. Our horse-drawn wagon ride comes complete with a dutch oven dinner, and it’s another favorite for couples, family reunions and groups. Zion Ponderosa’s mini golf course is a family favorite amongst guests, and kids love our bungee trampoline and children’s horseback rides. We also offer a super fun Kids Camp during the summer, so kids can experience pint-sized adventures of their own.
