Grafton is easily accessible. Just near the entrance to Zion is the town of Rockville. There is an auto bridge over the Virgin River which you take to reach Grafton on the south side of the river. In fact, the Park Service has recently become interested in helping with interpretive activities at and for Grafton, although I don't believe there is a physical "presence" of NPS signage at Grafton itself.

You must be thinking of the ghost town of Shunesburg, which is on private property, three miles up the East Fork of the Virgin River. Years ago you could still hike the East Fork (Parunuweap Canyon, named by John Wesley Powell on his second expedition in 1871-72. It means "roaring water canyon" in the Paiute language.) which flows through the Park to the confluence with the North Fork of the Virgin. It is only the last four miles that are on private property. Sometime after I hiked through there in the early-1990s the property owner got fed up with all the traffic and closed access. And in 1992 the Park Service closed the rest of Parunuweap Canyon. Some say it rivals the Zion Narrows for beauty and stunning majesty, and I certainly agree with this.
