If you would like to provide your own lodging:

We recommend lodging at one of the many hotels in Springdale, all within a 5 minute drive or 10 minute walk of Nama-Stay. We recommend the Two Cranes Inn in Rockville,  LaQuinta Inn and Suites in SpringdaleQuality Inn Montclair, Desert Pearl, Under the Eaves, and the suites at Cliffrose Lodge. Additionally, camping is available in Zion at the Watchman Campground or in Springdale at the Zion Canyon Campground.

What’s Not Included?

  • Airfare nor ground transport to/from Springdale, UT. We suggest flying in/out of Las Vegas (LAS). They tend to have the best flights and inexpensive car rentals. Then it is a 2.5 hour car drive from LAS to Nama-Stay/Springdale. Closer-but often more difficult to find the right scheduled flights and price is Saint George Municipal Airport (SGU).  The main carrier is Delta and connects out of Salt Lake City (SLC) and Denver (DEN). From SGU it is an 1 hour car drive to Nama-Stay/Springdale. If you DO NOT want to rent a car, there is transport available via the Saint George Shuttle. If none of these options work for you, send us an email and we will try to help ease the logistics and help you arrive! Once in Springdale, you will not need to drive. There is a free town shuttle and free park shuttle
  • Meals (Nama-Stay is equipped with a full kitchen and is located down the street from the town grocery store Sol Foods) There are also many fantastic restaurants and coffee shops with-in walking distance. If you are planning on staying with us at Nama-Stay or if you are providing your own lodging but booked one of our packages that includes the welcome dinner (which we strongly suggest) then dinner will be provided for you on the first night, Thursday November 2, 2017.
