Where We Live

Whether seasonal or full-time, you’ll discover the magic of one of the most extraordinary places on earth. Zion is a place for year-round adventure and unique experiences. Living in Zion offers endless opportunities for photography, scenic drives, camping, and unique hiking experiences such as Angel’s Landing Trail Hike, The Narrows Hike, and The Subway.

Our guests and employees come from across the country and around the world which makes working in Zion National Park a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interact with, and learn about, a variety of cultures. Our employees make countless personal connections and create everlasting memories for themselves and our guests.


Zion is a community living environment. Community living can be a great way to bond and create lifelong friendships with others who share similar interests and values, however, it does come with some challenges. Being prepared will help with your transition.
