      The Rhoades’ We are taking a separate day to explore the North Rim while we are at Zion. Don't want to pull the fifth wheel there and worry about parking where we want to explore.

      Hank & Shirleen It wasn’t on a lottery in 2016 and we have heard no changes.  The Campground is Teklanika and is about 30 miles in. They stop you at about 15 miles in unless you have the campground reservations.  The only lottery we have heard about Is to be ab...  more
