Canyoneering – Zion National Park, Ut

The majesty of Zion National Park is something that everyone should explore. Families looking to push themselves and gain teamwork skills can plan a half-day or full-day canyoneering trip with a skilled guide leading the way. Parents and kids as young as five will rappel, wade through canyon pools and hike while enjoying the park's natural beauty.

There are three campgrounds in Zion National Park, plus several private campgrounds can be found a short distance from the park entrance. Find out more here.
