Rockville, Utah is a small town that lies just outside of Zion National Park at about 4 miles from the park entrance along State Route 9.
With just a couple hundred residents, Rockville maintains its status as a town with a town council and some other amenities. It’s location to neighboring town of Springdale allows residents a few places to shop and eat with local restaurants and convenience stores. However, it is only about a 45-minute drive to St. George, which offers a wide variety of places to shop, eat and lodgings.
Those traveling to Zion National Park will drive directly through Rockville, which is also located along the Virgin River.
There is a historic steel truss bridge, which spans the Virgin River found accessible through Rockville. The bridge was built in 1924 and is one of the last standing examples of a truss bridge in the state of Utah. Going over this bridge, visitors can access the ghost town of Grafton, Utah.
