Desert Pearl is a characterful Inn located in the heart of Springdale along the banks of the Virgin River. Zion's dramatic landscapes of sculptured canyons and soaring cliffs surround the Inn, with the park's entrance and visitor center just a short walk away.
With car access limited to maintain the peacefulness of the park, staying in Springdale offers immediate access to the park on foot, by complimentary shuttle bus or on a mountain bike. It's easy once there to arrange activities for yourself through local outfitters to go biking, tubing, climbing and (Zion's most famous activity) hiking the slot canyon of the Virgin River, adventures that are not available in the park itself.
