  • We stayed at Sand Hollow for five days and had a great time. We booked online with no trouble and check-in at the gate was very speedy and efficient. We booked a full power site and the sites are quit...  read more »
  • What a great state park. This is a spacious park with sites quite far apart. There is no shade but picnic tables are covered. Views of the surrounding hills and the reservoir are awesome. A bit of a w...  read more »
  • Been coming here off and on for 10 years. It keeps getting busier but they do a good job of managing the crowds. Be careful if the winds pickup though and get off quick. Lots of canopies hit the lake. 
  • We visited in June, and while we really liked the red sand beaches and cool, clear water, we didn't like the swimmer's itch my oldest son got while we were there. I guess there's not much you can do about it, but it still made for a less-than-ideal outing. If it weren't for that little bug in the water, we'd have rated this place more favorably. It was blazing hot the day we were there, but the water made it fun regardless. And the scenery is lovely. I'm a fan of red rock contrasting with blue water.
  • Loved it! Never pitched a tent in sand before but nailed it! Can't wait to go back and atv! Its safe alone and the fellow campers were very nice. The ice cold showers were great in the 40c plus weather and at night the dust devils are beautiful against the waxing's close to (yummy) Perks in Hurricane... They have actual real fruit smoothies, true java, and the boys in uniform have beautiful smiles (sigh ;) ) also it's 20mins to Zion
  • Visited Sand Hollow to go scuba diving and it was definitely a fun adventure. The water was warm, average visibility and between the cool rock formations, bus and plane we had a lot of fun. We ran into a treasure chest just south of the dive platform. We camped the first night at the campgrounds and wished we could have cancelled our hotel reservations because the campgrounds were nice and the weather was perfect at night.
  • Great views. Fun sandy beaches. Shallow for a ways out, good for little kids. Sand dunes are real fun. Lots of trails and fun rock crawling
  • I've lived here 11 years and finally went to Sand Hollow. I had always been worried about swimmer's itch there, but the water were we played was constantly moving and none of us had any issues. The water was perfect and the scenery breath-taking. I kicked myself for waiting so long to go there!
