Blast from the past! This summer will be my 1st trip back to Zion in over 10 years. I remember pulling in and saying to myself, "look at this amazing free camping spot!" just outside the park that was my basecamp for many days. I found old photos of it that I attached here. Can anyone identify it by my photos? Is it the Mosquito Cove spots that are currently closed after recent flooding? Do you think we'd be able to find other decent free camping nearby or should we look into reserving a NPS campground spot and splurge to make our trip more enjoyable?
