Fodor's Expert Review Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort
Twin Knolls Rd., Mount Carmel, Utah, 84755, USA
Just east of Zion National Park, this scenic 4,000-acre ranch offers a dizzying array of family-oriented activities like zip-lining, horseback riding, rock climbing, and miniature golf; the lineup of lodging options is equally varied. The latter include standard "cowboy" cabins, larger cabin suites, and vacation homes with up to 6,000 square feet of space. Kids love the cubbyhole-like sleeping areas shaped like covered wagons (they sleep up to four). You can also pitch a tent or hook up an RV. After a long day on the ranch, head to the spa for a massage. A restaurant and a large pool area are among the other public spaces.
