    Great views of the mountains, lake and dunes. Each day we did something different - cliff jumping, boating, swimming, ATVing (trails, and dunes). Camp sites on the west loop are very nice and accommod...  more »

    Although we read about there being swimmers itch, we were very good about drying off with a towel every time we exited the water and were just fine. The lake was very refreshing from the heat. There a...  more »

    Trails for miles, nice mix of rocks to climb sand dunes to dune in and miles of desert. Overlooking the beautiful lake I'm sold  more »

    Excellent area to cool off from the heat of St . George. The cliff jumping area is great for thrill seekers. Be sure to bring a towel and lots of sunscreen. Swimmers itch was active in the water during our visit in July, but we experienced no adverse effects. Highly recommended place visit.

    Really beautiful place and the water is absolutely incredible. We parked and hiked a ways east until we reached some great rocks and ledges to jump off into the water. It was very hot and windy when we went. Bring loads of sunscreen and water to keep hydrated. Bring sturdy water shoes as well to traverse the sometimes difficult rocks.

    We went to Sand Hollow at the end of June and my only complaint is the heat. It is scorching in the summer months. We brought our two dogs to swim in the lake, but I'm not sure I would bring them again through the summer because the sand and pavement is too hot. We camped in site W20. It was a little farther from the lake, but it had much better views of the lake, then closer sites below. There is a parking lot and boat dock near the campground, but there is also a day beach on the other side of the lake that has an actual beach, restaurant and rental place. I was skeptical about Sand Hollow because of the reviews regarding swimmers itch, but it was not a problem for us at all. We were told by the personnel at the campground that if you wear waterproof sunscreen and towel dry off after getting out of the water, it should not be an issue and it wasn't. The lake was beautiful and the water was nice. We will definitely be back...just not in the summer.

    Sand hollow is the best place in the area for boating, cliff jumping, swimming, scuba diving, fishing, etc. I've been dozens of times and have never had swimmers itch. It's an allergic reaction to microscopic organisms and if you aren't allergic you won't get the itch, which apparently none of my family is allergic. By the dock and the rocks area is a fun spot for the family to swim and climb on the rocks (especially to jump off). On the north side the beaches are really nice sand and usually less crowded.

    The campsites suck. We are on the side with the full hookups and there are no trees and far from the lake There are rats and mice running around. At night you have to dodge them. The lake is small but nice with great beaches. The camp sites are affordable however, they rape you if you have an extra vehicle and boat. We had to drive two cars, one to pull our trailer and the other for the boat. They charged us 15.00 to park the remaining vehicle and boat on our site PER NIGHT. As I see it, if you rented the campsite, why charge more?? The girls in the office were friendly. We won't be staying here again.
