4 Ways to Save on Your Next Visit to Zion National Park

by | Jun 30, 2024

Compared to visiting theme parks or busy cities, vacationing near national parks like Zion can be a great way to save some money. Activities like hiking and sightseeing will help you make incredible memories without breaking the bank. 

But with everyone looking to save a little money on their next getaway, you might be wondering if there are still ways to save on your next visit to Zion National Park. The answer is yes—as long as you’re willing to be a little flexible!

From booking a canvas glamping tent to visiting during the off-season, keep reading to learn a few ways to save on your Zion accommodations and more when you plan a stay at Zion Wildflower Resort.

1. Visit During the Off-Season

If your travel plans are flexible, one easy way to save on your Zion accommodations is to plan a visit during the off-season. Most visitors to Southern Utah make their way here during the summer months. But while it’s true that summer brings clear weather and long days, it’s also the busiest time of year in Zion and the hottest.

Winter is one of the best times of year to visit Zion National Park. You’ll enjoy empty trails, cooler temperatures, and even the chance to see the park become a winter wonderland after it snows. There are even some activities that you can only enjoy in the winter, like skiing at nearby Brian Head Resort or cross-country skiing in Bryce Canyon National Park.

From late fall to late spring, rental rates for cabins near Zion National Park tend to be lower. This can be a great way to save some money on your rental. Use it to book a longer stay, upgrade to larger Utah villas, dine out at Springdale restaurants, or maybe enjoy some exciting adventures, like an ATV tour.

2. Choose Zion Accommodations With a Range of Options

Another great way to save on your next Zion adventure is to choose accommodations that offer rooms at various price points. Zion Wildflower Resort offers unique rooms at a variety of price points. 

If you’re on a tight budget, our Watchman Tents offer the full glamping experience in a canvas glamping tent complete with plush beds and soft rugs, all at an affordable price point. Other affordable options include our luxury covered wagons and our bungalows.

3. Purchase a National Park Annual Pass

There’s more than one way to save on your next vacation. Choosing a resort with accommodations that fit your budget, like a canvas glamping tent at Zion Wildflower Resort, is one great way to save. But there are other options to save some cash besides your resort stay.

If you plan to visit a few national parks during your vacation, or if you know that you’ll visit other national parks over the next 12 months, purchasing a national park annual pass could save you some cash.

Keep in mind that your entrance fee gets you access to Zion for seven consecutive days. It’s also important to note that this tip won’t save you money upfront, as you’ll need to purchase the pass. But if you and your family tend to visit several national parks throughout the year or even return to the same one multiple times, this pass will help you save some money later on.

4. Take Advantage of Deals

Zion Wildflower Resort is already a popular destination for families looking for unique Zion accommodations that fit their budget. But we also offer other opportunities to save on your stay in a canvas glamping tent, wagon, or bungalow.

For instance, when you book a stay of three or more nights before August 31, you’ll enjoy a 25 percent discount on your booking. Check out our website throughout the year to learn about any deals to help you save on your stay.

Put the money you save towards a fun meal with your family, a unique activity, or other vacation expenses you encounter.
