Zion in December!

The town of Springdale is planning lots of holiday activities for the month of December, Bumbleberry Gift Shop is running great sales and has something for everyone on your shopping list, and with Bumbleberry Inn moving to it’s off-season rates now is the perfect time to plan a weekend get-away!

The best season of the year begins.

With Labor Day weekend over Zion National Park enters its next season.  The weather is cooling but yet still warm enough to be comfortable.  Kids are back in school and the trails are perfect for the seasoned hikers or those who want a quiet getaway.  September is a busy time of the year in Springdale so it is always best to call ahead and book your reservations.  Repairs and upgrades are being made on Angels Landing trail to make it an even better experience.  This the perfect time of the year to do my favorite trail, East Rim Trail to Observation Point.  It is a bit of a climb but you don’t have to rush the hike and the vistas from the top on the mountains is more than worth the effort to get there.  There are portable potties up top for your comfort.  Make sure you bring a camera, one that can do panoramic photos would be even better.  Make sure you have your Bumbleberry Pie during your adventures here in Springdale and Zion National Park.

Free Park Day

Another “Free Park Day” has come and gone – don’t miss the last 2 of the year!  September 25th and November 11th the park entrance fee is waved which makes it the perfect time to visit Zion.  Get reservations now before they fill up!

Wonderful time to visit Zion National Park

I don’t know what it is about July.  As business owners we all talk and it isn’t just here in Springdale.  Seems July is a slow month for visitation to the national parks.  I guess that is a good thing for a visitor because you have all the amenities of a busy season without the crowd of people.  Some say that July is too hot and that is the reason.  July isn’t the hottest month so I don’t really know if that is the real reason.  The reason isn’t important though.  What is important is you can enjoy Zion National Park without a crowd.  You can get into restaurants and gift shops without waiting.  Basically you can enjoy the wonders without the hassles.  With the steep cliffs of Zion you can even do the hikes that are shady all day long and not be in the sun.  Those hikes that are more exposed to the open can be done early morning or late afternoon to avoid the heat.  As always there are the refreshing swimming pools.  Here is another wonderment I have had.  Why would you go into  a hot tub that is 100+ degrees when the outside temperature is 100?  Isn’t the idea of water to cool you down?  What are your thoughts on the reason July is a slow month?  If you have thoughts on either of these questions I would love to hear from you.

Zion National Park is OPEN!

Zion Park just announced new construction hours – the road WILL BE OPEN 8am to 8pm and ALL DAY on the weekends and holidays so don’t let the slight construction deter you from visiting!

The new pool area and hot tub are finished with just a couple of finishing touches needed to be done. We also have planted 6 trees and started a new park with a picnic area. The requests for the mini-goats to return was so overwhelming we have brought back 6 of them for your enjoyment.

Welcome to the new Bumbleberry Blog

New this year is this blog. Hopefully you will find it useful as we tell you more about Bumbleberry and Zion National Park. Currently we are working on the hot tub and deck area around the pool. Everything is torn up but is in the process of being finished. When all is done our guests should find it one of their highlights. The hot tub has a waterfall that flows into the swimming pool as well as nine jets. You and your friends can all enjoy the spacious hot tub and the different jets that we have installed. The pool area will have natural looking stone work around it to help blend in with Zion National Park. Also on order are new window furnishings and bed skirts. With duvees are being made to upgrade the look of the rooms. We have listened to what our guests have asked for and are trying to make your stay the most comfortable that we can.
