  • We happened to be watching Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid before our trip to Utah and learned that some of the movie (bicycle scene in particular) was filmed here. Grafton is definitely off the be...  more »
  • Essential for children and teens! After a bumpy desert road between the mountains, arrived at the abandoned cemetery in Grafton, it was in an episode of "Scooby doo"! The village then comprised a church (the whole village is restored by an association, sold brochure tells very well about the history and help the association) and small houses (visit of the cellar of indispensable to scare), of "cursed" swings that move in the wind (see cemetery), from carts in the fields, even if the village is very small, the atmosphere is here! On the other hand, take the turnoff at the exit of Rockville (lovely town with nice houses and ranches)

  • Certainly, bad road indicated, but way worth it. Pass through an old bridge, green meadows with cows, are expected to see the characters of "the little house on the prairie". And small souvenir nostalgic scene of the bicycle for those who have seen "Butch Cassidy and the kid". Place very well preserved and the must is the cemetery with the mountain in the background, it's "magic"...

  • Although this had a very ere feeling, it was so cool to see a ghost town! It wasn't like a traditional one that you see in the movies but, it was very cool to see what one actually looked like! I would recommend visiting if you are ever looking for something to do on a day without anything planned!
  • I lived less than a mile from here, in a cabin on top of the mesa overlooking Rockville, 1978. This spot is one of my favorite things to show friends and family when we drive through Utah. A cool bit of film history happened in Grafton ghost town...it's featured in the movie "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid". It's remote and most tourists miss the little turn-off or do not know it exists, I've never run into a tourist here. The headstones are cool and worth the time to drive off highway. Very scenic area!
  • Interesting side trip. Well preserved.
  • Blast from the past. Not a sight you will soon forget.

Where to stay in Springdale

For a town of its size, Springdale is home to a surprising number of lodgings. Nearly all of the area's hotels are located on the same street, Zion Park Boulevard. As the town's main thoroughfare, this road offers both proximity to the nearby national park and the town's stores and eateries. You'll find that the area's bed and breakfasts and vacation rentals are slightly more spread out, but they are still within easy walking distance of the boulevard.
