About Moonlight Oasis
Moonlight Oasis Zion is located on 1200 acre private Zion West Ranch, at Smith Mesa outside the tiny western town of Virgin Utah. With panoramic views of Zion National Park directly in front of our land, we are only a five minute drive to the Zion National Park “back country Kolob Terrace region” with zero crowds and only 20 minutes to the main gate of Zion in Springdale Utah, and 10 minutes to the FREE Zion Shuttle bus stop.
Moonlight Oasis is a rustic eco-chic “leave no trace” ethics seasonal ranch with several camping options and is a totaly “off grid” with minimal solar lighting only. 200 acres is set aside for various camping areas and tents give plenty of privacy and space. If you have never camped this may NOT be the place for you as its very wild and rugged land. This is still camping as we are not a luxury resort. We are a rustic upgraded camp with luxury tent options and tent kits and self camping. We do suggest an SUV for the dirt roads and rugged terrain although many people use sedans and small cars which do well on the maintained dirt roads. Several camping options await in our several camps: 10 luxury 16ft wide canvas tents, with real mattresses, and all upgraded camping basics, 25 TiPi tents, furnished with all basic camping kits of air mattresses, cooking items, coolers, and self camping areas for those with their own tents and gear. We have solar rinse showers for the canvas camp, solar shower bags for the Tipis, and clean outhouses for all areas. The terrain and region is very rugged, extreme and wildly beautiful, you drive through a section of Zion to our turn off inside of Zion onto our dirt road. We are minutes to back country Zion trail heads, and 20 minutes to the Main gate and town.
Moonlight Oasis is perched above canyons on a mesa mountain overlooking Zion National Park.
You will feel like you are miles away in the old west centuries ago, with epic unparalleled views day and night of Zion from our camps. We have several camps spread out far and wide from each other over many acres of the ranch.
Watch the sun rise over Zion National Park every day and sunsets over the western edge of the Mojave desert to the SW of us, lighting up Zion National Park with a spectacular array of colors nightly. We look forward to sharing this natural stunning and pristine sacred ancient land with all our future guests. Please make sure to read all about us and be prepared for rustic camping while being a short drive to 24 hour stores, grocery, shops, cafes and shopping in Springdale or Hurricane Utah.
