Zion Shanty is within driving distance to 3 National Parks:
*Zion Shanty is on the east side of Zion National Park. Zion, Bryce & North Rim Grand Canyon are all within driving distance from Zion Shanty and each can be done as a "day trip". To us, a day trip is driving through the Park (riding the Zion Shuttle), stopping at the visitor center, grabbing some lunch, taking a small 2 mile hike, taking lots of pictures, then heading home. Plan on at least a day trip for each National Park (i.e. 1 full day at each National Park if you are doing all three); trying to do 2 Parks in one day would be hard because of driving time. While day trips are the quick way to see the Parks, you could spend days seeing and experiencing everything and it is well worth it. We recommend giving yourself plenty of time to enjoy each Park.

This is a "whole home" rental and guests have access to the entire 1 acre property, excluding the water tank shed. Zion Shanty is a "self-check in" property meaning that a key lock box is on site and the combination will be given to you after your reservation. This gives you the convenience to check-in anytime after 3pm the day of your reservation.
The only interaction with guests will be refilling the water tank for longer stays. Even then, the water tank shed is located at the beginning at the property which minimizes how much I will be disturbing the guests. Other than this, guests can determine how much interaction they have with me. This means if you want your privacy, you won't be disturbed. But if you want to reach out to me and ask questions that will help you plan your trip or enhance your stay at Zion Shanty; I encourage you to do so.
Water is provided by a 1500 gallon water tank brought in from a nearby well. We have to manually fill the water tank via a water truck, therefore we encourage conservative water usage (1500 gallons should last 8 people 7 days). We also recommend bringing water bottles for drinking water.
