At Zion Ponderosa, we strive to create the perfect Zion experience for everyone that stays with us, and we especially love hosting family reunions. When extended families come to Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort, groups can range in size from a handful to more than a hundred family members—and if there’s one thing that they all have in common, it’s tons of fun!
“Thank you! This was our best family reunion yet. Our 10 grandchildren went non-stop. Your resort is unique. Lots to do for everybody and we all felt safe. Thank you for providing such an environment. We created many memories!”

We offer a full range of fun activities, adventures and amenities, so there’s something for everyone. At our 4,000-acre ranch resort on the eastern edge of Zion National Park, families can enjoy amenities such as swimming in our two-tiered pool, volleyball and tennis, horseshoe pits, archery, billiards, ping pong, and more. Onsite activities include mini golf, paint ball, trampoline bungee, climbing wall, and zip lining. One family shared with us a great experience about one of the younger cousins who was nervous to try the zip line but tried it and loved it (and went again and again!) after being cheered on by his family. These are the moments we love to hear about—the special moments that create unforgettable family reunion memories.
Our group of 24, including 11 kids, made lasting memories at
Zion Ponderosa. What a fabulous place to stay. All of us wanted to stay longer.
Would highly recommend the resort – it had something for everyone!!
Two dozen of Kathy Weaver’s family members recently stayed at Zion Ponderosa, and enjoyed a multitude of activities including horseback riding and ATV touring. Many families have told us that some of their favorite adventures include the many adventures they can experience without even leaving Zion Ponderosa’s grounds. A family reunion favorite activity is the Dutch Oven Dinner and Wagon Ride, where families get to experience a real taste of the Old West and enjoy each other’s company with a stress-free meal prepared and waiting. We can also arrange dining under the stars beneath our large white canvas tent that can accommodate 80 guests or more. (Ask about our on-site photographer to take family pictures while you are here.)
“We had such a wonderful time. Our home was great, the staff
and activities were so fun and friendly! Zion Ponderosa was a
great first time experience for our first time in Southern Utah!
Thanks again for a wonderful family reunion.”

For a true Southern Utah adventure experience, Zion Ponderosa can arrange epic hikes, canyoneering adventures, guided Jeep and ATV tours and more. Zion National Park is just minutes away, and you can even hike into the park from Zion Ponderosa. While the grown-ups are out making epic memories, young family members can enjoy fun, western-themed activities at our Kid’s Camp.
At the end of the day of fun and adventure, families need a place to call home—and that’s another thing that really sets Zion Ponderosa apart. We can accommodate any size family reunion group with a variety of lodging to fit any budget, from campsites and covered wagons to cabin suites and luxury vacation lodges.
