Fodor's Expert Review Lava Point
Zion National Park Viewpoint
Infrequently visited, this area has a primitive campground and two nearby reservoirs that offer the only significant fishing opportunities in the park. Lava Point Overlook, one of the park's highest viewpoints, provides vistas of Zion Canyon from the north. The higher elevation here makes it much cooler than the Zion Canyon area. Park visitors looking for a respite from crowds and heat find the campground a nice change of pace, though the six sites fill up quickly and are only open May through September.
