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.

  • 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
  • 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.
  • It's an awesome place to play. It's not large but it's a very fun place to play with family and friends! Boating, fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking, camping, and just lots of fun!
  • Quail is a great place for a hot summer day. It is close to town so it is easily accessible and with provides a great escape from the southern Utah heat.
  • Great little lake! Fishing (the little Blue Gill fight like hell), boating (no big boats) and places you can grill.
