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.

  • A reservation is recommended as close as possible to the water. It is quiet despite the proximity to the highway. The kayak rentals has worked out well and lot of fun.

  • Fun time!! They had just planed 30,000 rainbow trout, and we were all catching a fish almost every cast. Best time to go is in the morning and evening. Use a mepps spinner or cast master for best results. They were not biting on bait.
  • Quail Creek is a beautiful State Park that is open year round. You can enjoy camping, swimming, boating and other water activities. There are hiking trails and bike trails and the views of the lake among the red rocks of Utah is spectacular.
  • Was camping in park. Arrived 3 minutes after 9 pm gate was closed. Park host would not open it and was extremely rude. We could not access our trailer, pet dogs or any of our property until the next day. I. Would not stay here or any other Utah state park again.
  • Super nice camp host, quiet, clean, close to Zion, Hurricane and St. George. Fun bike trail right there. Good transistion camp.
  • Great hidden treasure that is less crowded and more fun than Sand Hollow. We went 2 weekends in a row and had a blast. The wind does pick up fast however and it's difficult to get your boat off the water quickly with no safe marina.
