WASHINGTON — Planning a trip to Yosemite, Denali, or one of the other 59 national parks in the United States? Instead of holing up at a chain hotel miles away from the action, consider bunking at one of the many accommodations found right inside or nearby a national park.
Zion Lodge at Zion National Park, Utah
The only lodge located inside Zion National Park serves as a jumping-off point for the park’s 146,600 acres of craggy cliffs and amazing flora and fauna. Guests can stroll a nearby hiking trail or take a tour on horseback, then dine at the Red Rock Grill, open year-round, or the seasonal Castle Dome Café.
At day’s end, they can retire to one of the lodge’s cozy cabins ($170 to $237), amenity-packed hotel rooms ($180 to $247), or suites ($231 to $300). Rates vary by season, and accommodations book up quickly.
