(4.1/5 based on 50 reviews on the web)
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.

  • My wife and I moved to Hurricane seven years ago and Quail Creek State Park is our favorite destination. We hike there, kayak, and we fish there as well. The trout are plump and full of fight and we h...  more »

  • Visited off-season so not much going on. Nice large reservoir that is open for water sports, a small supply store on the premises and great scenery all around 
  • We were really looking forward to camping here as it was next to a lake and desert surroundings. But especially to have access to private showers in the restrooms. The web site indicate that there are showers in the restrooms. That is not true!!!! The showers are pay showers outside in the open to rinse off after swimming in the lake. When we asked at entrance, we were informed to go to another campground down the road for a shower. If you like camping near a lake in the desert, this is a beautiful spot. But do not count on a shower.
  • Love Quail Creek State Park! Best lake around because it's not as busy as the others! The beaches aren't that great but other than that it's all good.
  • Was forced to camp here for a night due to a breakdown, but it turned out to be a good mark on the map to keep. Nice shelters for the wind, and the sun lights up the rocks across the water beautifully at sunset. Bathrooms were clean and nice, tent pad was generous size. parking was ample and the distance between sites was good.
  • Very clean got a picnic table easily parking was close and bathrooms were easy to find. However employees were unwelcoming right at the gate where you pay. Go there for relaxation and family time and the attitude of the employee at the pay area made us feel uncomfortable
  • Wheel of Quail Creek and we will love the park ranger that's there she's always friendly and nice
