  • Kodachrome State Park is east of Bryce National Park and just a bit off the beaten track. It is a small park and the main attraction is that you can experience a sample of the colored rocks and also s...  read more »

  • Impressed as we have been by the big well known parks this was just such a wonderful contrast . So peaceful , so uncrowded and yet so amazing. Why is it not more appreciated? I suppose it's because of...  read more »
  • Quiet, clean, secluded with some beautiful hiking trails. Very impressed with the cleanliness of the showers and bathrooms. We enjoyed our desert hike on the Panorama Trail. We walked to the trail head from Basin Campground. Long, but not hard. Bring lots of water and start early in the day to beat the heat. Lots of beautiful views, interesting rock formations, and plants. We saw jack rabbit and deer, and some cat tracks. Don't miss Cool Cave, it was the highlight of our hike.
  • What a gorgeous place! The trails were attainable for my 6 year old although you may want to set out early to avoid the sun and high temperatures. Staff was attentive and the campground and bathrooms were wonderfully clean- even the sand was swept. One star has been taken away for the scalding hot showers- there is no way to control the temperature OR turn off the water if you leave before your 8 minutes are up which is a huge waste of water. Watch for rattlesnakes. No cell service as it's in the middle of a giant rock bowl.
  • Beautiful state park. Sort of a mini-mashup of Bryce, Goblin and Capital Reef. Good uncrowded place to base visits to Bryce, Escalante and Route 12. Stayed at the Basin campground at a full hookup site. Bathrooms seemed to be very new and were very clean.
  • Came down from park city to check out kodachrome basin state park. My husband and I camped at the bryce view campsite and it was awesome! The campsite was very maintained! The park had some great hikes too! Looking forward to visiting again!
  • I enjoyed the scenery and mountain biking here. An interesting stop off if you are doing the highway 12 route.
