As the crisp autumn air beckons adventurers to Zion, it’s the perfect time for fall glamping. Nestled on the eastern plateau above Zion National Park, Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort offers the perfect setting for an unforgettable fall getaway. 

Fall Glamping and East Zion Adventures

Glamping allows you to sleep outdoors but also enjoy the comforts of home. And when you book a glamping experience at Zion Ponderosa, you also gain access to a plethora of exciting adventures. Whether you’re stargazing under the clear, dark skies, taking a thrilling jeep tour through the colorful landscape, or savoring delicious meals by the campfire at your glampsite, fall blends the best of Zion adventures with the comfy vibes of glamping. It’s the perfect time of year to soak up the magic of East Zion. 

Perfect Location for Fall Adventures 

Zion Ponderosa’s prime location provides easy access to Zion National Park and an exciting variety of East Zion Adventures. Plus, it’s just a scenic 75-minute drive to Bryce Canyon National Park, and only 25 minutes to Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Early September can still be quite toasty in Zion’s main canyon, but up at Zion Ponderosa’s 6,000-foot elevation, the daytime temperatures are more pleasant.

Glamping + Amenities

At Zion Ponderosa, the amenities and adventures elevate the glamping experience. Savor delicious meals at the on-site dining options and indulge in a hearty breakfast to kickstart your day. If you’re looking to cool off or unwind after a day of adventure, take a dip in the two-tier pool or soak in the hot tub. From rock climbing to guided jeep tours, sunset horseback rides to stargazing, the fall season’s vibrant colors set the stage for a fall glamping getaway. 

Brushy Cove Jeep Tour

Enjoy the best of Zion’s views with our favorite fall adventure—the Brushy Cove Jeep tour! We ascend more than 1,500 feet for breathtaking views of East Zion, with the brightest fall colored foliage during peak season. Bonus: keep an eye out for wildlife like mule deer, wild turkeys, and elk on this fall Jeep tour. 


One of the most magical aspects of fall glamping at Zion Ponderosa is the unparalleled stargazing. Far from the light pollution of nearby towns, the night sky comes alive with a breathtaking display of stars. Imagine cozying up by the campfire, sharing stories, and gazing at the Milky Way stretching across the horizon, either on a guided stargazing tour or simply outside your cozy glamping tent.
