Camping at Zion National Park, Utah, USA

Turkey Burger Happy Hour with Nathalie (from Montreal, Canada), KOA Hurricane Campground, Utah (Prior to arriving at Zion National Park, I stayed at a KOA campground for three nights waiting for my reservation at Zion.)

(April 18 – 27, 2019) Arriving at the South Campground in Zion National park, I immediately loved my campsite: good shade under cottonwood trees, huge space, awesome view, and etc. It takes a bit of research and early booking to stay in a National Park Campground. Yet, until actually arriving at a site, I wouldn’t know the whole Yin and Yang of each site. It also depends on what kind of neighbors will be staying at my next sites each night.

In Zion Campground, I enjoyed talking to two medical doctors each evening. These two guys have been friends since 1975 in a medical school. They have been traveling together once a year, without their spouse. I learned most campers are very decent people. It seems camping is safer than going to a bar in a city. When sun goes down, campers started cooking by each fire ring. When it gets real dark, everyone seems to enjoy watching stars or absorbing nature resting. I wished I knew camping life earlier. Camping in a national park is s a privilege for people like me. I don’t mind the fact there is no shower facility in Zion National Park nor no electricity at my campsite. A shower facility was available outside of the park. ($4 for 5 minutes) For charging my laptop, I went to a library in town. I am getting really good at my recent adopted lifestyle.
