Cave Commons

Our Cave Commons area features a large grassy area, concrete walkways, and two covered pavilions all focused around our main hoodoo cave. This area overlooks the pond and is hooked up to full power and water utilities. The Cave Commons can host up to 300 guests with tables and chairs.


If you choose to book the Cave Commons venue your experience will include the entire Cave Commons area for your event plus an onsite staff member, grounds prep, minimal clean-up, and minimal coordination prior to the event. 

Your hired vendors will assist in taking care of catering setup, transportation, and decor.  All tables, chairs, and linens for rent are supplied through a local vendor. We also ask that groups take care of their own clean-up after the event, though this can be arranged for a fee.

We have 8 incredible and unique units. They all vary in sleeping arrangements but all together can sleep up to 26 people. If you book an event, renting the accommodations is not required. If booking a wedding, all accommodations are required to be rented.

Venue Staff

When you book your Zion National Park wedding or event weekend at Cave Lakes, we will provide an on-site coordinator to support your needs, but all other staffing is your responsibility. Contact us to meet the coordinator.

Venue Accessibility


The Canyon’s on-site parking is minimal. While the space can hold up to 300 people with tables and chairs, there is not enough parking for everyone to arrive on their own. We have a lower lot that can hold up to 50 cars but after that, we require that groups shuttle in from town. Our team is here to help arrange shuttle services and those staying on the property can simply walk to the event.
