  • Some National Parks are so big that you need to take a few days just to get through it. Snow Canyon is fairly small in comparison. It costs $6.00 to get in for an all day pass. You can go find an easy...  more »

  • We stayed at Red Mountain Resort for a week and enjoyed every moment. Snow Canyon is BEAUTIFUL and so accessible from the resort. So much to do and see. I recommend renting a bike and pedaling up (yes, its uphill so be prepared for a good workout, BUT the sights you'll see and the ride back down is so much fun, I would do it every day if time permitted). So far, this has been one of my favorite vacations and I will DEFINITELY return and spend even more time there. Anyone who is on the fence about going...JUST DO IT!
  • Snow Canyon State Park is one of the crown jewels in the Utah State Park system. Certainly of the parks in Washington County (Snow Canyon, Quail Creek, Sand Hollow and Gunlock), Snow Canyon is, by far, the most beautiful. With spectacular sandstone cliffs, sand dunes, slot canyons and overlooks, this small park is like a mini-Zion. Most of the hikes are relatively short and without a lot of elevation gain, so it is very family-friendly in that regard. If you are visiting, this needs to be on your to-do list.
  • The view alone is so worth being there, but the hiking is phenomenal! Whether you like an easy or difficult hike, long or short there are so many choices. If they had 1p stars I'd vote 10!
  • Great place to camp for a very reasonable rate. Our site offered two sand pits (for tents), a sturdy stone picnic table, and a large fire pit with grill. The park has great views and plenty of trails to hike. Each place we explored was clean and maintained.
  • Include me among the many, many fans of Snow Canyon State Park. Excellent hiking trails throughout the park for hikers of all levels, campgrounds (tents and RVs), and so much to see and experience that you could spend days here and never stop being wow'ed by each new sight. And a rather storied past, as well. Purportedly, Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid holed up in the Canyon before they were briefly jailed in St George. (You can visit their jail cell in St George, preserved in a newish small shopping center.) Even if not true, parts of the movie were filmed in the Canyon, as well as Thelma & Louise, and several John Wayne films. Enjoy finding all the spectacular spots!
