Willow Wind RV Park

In the past, when we have visited Zion National Park, we stayed at Zion River RV Resort. This year we stayed at Willow Wind RV Park in Hurricane.  It puts you 10.8 miles further away from the main entrance to Zion.  The park is right in downtown Hurricane, about one block off Hwy 9.  For us the extra distance was worth it.
The park has an older demographic.  I think we saw 2 children while we were here.  No one burned any wood.
There were 3 to 4 bars on the Verizon Jetpack.  However, sometimes speeds would just tank, it was like watching your hair grow to load a page.  RV park wifi is not usable.  The power is very good.  Water pressure is good.  The water tastes terrible, and occasionally smells funny.  The Brita is able to compensate for this.
The laundry is good sized and clean; wash and dry are both $2.   They don't have laundry carts and the folding table is too low.  No data on the rest rooms.
Sites are concrete pads, and are fairly level.  There is grass between the sites.  No picnic tables are provided, and there are no fire rings.  Interior roads are paved and are wide.  No trees touched our rig.  It's an RV park, you're close to your neighbors.
We waited too long to reserve here, wrongly believing that because school is in session that we would have no issues.  Our site was the last one available site for our dates.  It's a pull through and it is heavily treed.  Forget satellite in all of the pull throughs!  There is cable, and there are a fair number of channels. So all was not lost.  I was able to see the episode of Gray's Anatomy when they killed off McDreamy.  Notice the gigantic trees below.

Some of the sites backing up to the front wall have tiny trees and good access to the southern sky.  Street noise might be a little worse than an interior site, but it's pretty quiet here over all.

Many of the interior sides are also good for satellite.

The park has a fairly draconian refund policy.  You must cancel prior to 30 days of the start of your stay.  They charge your credit card immediately when you book.  Since we booked less than 30 days before arriving, there would be no reservation changes.
It's a nice park and we would come back here.
