I will be visiting Zion National Park in September. I read that the best option is to stay in Springdale and simply walk to a shuttle bus stop, leaving your car at the hostel. However, accommodation in Springdale is pretty expensive and I decided to stay in St. George instead and drive to Springdale in the morning.
Is there a problem leaving your car somewhere in Springdale?
How hard is it to find a free parking stop?
Do I have to arrive "at the crack of dawn" to find a spot?
