State Park Nature / Park
Quail Creek State Park is a state park of Utah, USA, featuring a 600acre reservoir. The park is located 9mi west of Hurricane and 1.5mi south of Harrisburg. Quail Creek State Park offers camping, boating, swimming, and fishing.The maximum depth of Quail Creek can reach 120ft, it is cold enough to sustain the stocked rainbow trout, bullhead catfish, and crappie. Largemouth bass, which are also stocked, and bluegill thrive in the warmer, upper layers of the reservoir.HistoryQuail Creek reservoir was completed in 1985 to provide irrigation and culinary water to the St. George area. Most of the water in the reservoir does not come from Quail Creek, but is diverted from the Virgin River and transported through a buried pipeline.Two dams form the reservoir. The main dam is an earthfill embankment dam. The south dam is a roller-compacted concrete dam, constructed to replace the original earthfill dam that failed in the early hours of New Year's Day 1989.

  • Rocky beach, but clear, warm water to play in by the picnic tables and shade. No swimmers itch here, like Sand Hollow and way less crowded. We enjoyed renting paddle boards from Dig Paddle Sports and ...  more »

  • Beautiful, clean and peaceful! $10 entry fee for the day. So worth it! No food vendors, bring your own food. Water is clean and warm enough to swim in. You can rent kayaks or paddle boards. So beautiful here!!!
  • Great place to go canoeing, kayaking, or paddle-boarding. Is typically colder (55-65 degrees). The lake is slightly acidic so there is no risk of getting swimmers itch (something the nearby sand hollow has a HUGE problem with). However due to the extremely small surface area it is not a good place to use a motorboat. The beaches are also quite rocky so watch your step. Overall its a pretty fun lake.
  • Nice little state park with a 3 or 4 lane ramp, docks down both sides. The parking area is small. Best thing we found here was the river inlet coming in. There was high water so we were able to boat up the river quite a ways.
  • Clean lake. Campground and bathrooms are clean. Friendly staff. Lots of fun stuff to do, we dint own a boat but the rental place is handy and you can get a coupon at the gate. They have a cool new water diving trampoline thing that is killer cool. Beaches aren't as nice as sand hollow state park but I like that it's relatively quiet and there aren't crazy ATVers everywhere.
  • This lake is small but not crowded. It was great for wake surfing. There were a lot of areas for paddle boarding. The water was warm in May.
