We have stayed several times at the Watchman campground and really enjoyed it. Very close to the Information Center and the shuttle that takes you throughout the park.

What to do/see:
If you have the time, the hike to Angels Landing is astonishing. It’s 5 miles up but worth the hike for the view. – this site includes other hike options. Hiking the Narrows is gorgeous and unique. You hike in the river. You can hike up the river and turn around at any time. We did this and hiked about 6 hours but we went quite far up the river.
