  • If this place was in another State, it would be a National Park. Great hikes in a variety of areas. This is a medium elevation desert. Not as cold as Zion in the winter, but still can be chilly...

  • We only had one full day in St. George and this is the place we wanted to be. This was our second visit to Snow Canyon. The last visit was 12 years ago and we had such good memories of being there...

  • We loved this place so much I strongly recommend it over Zion. Breathtaking views but nowhere near as congested and crowded. We did a short hike to a small slot canyon, Jenny’s Canyon. That was quite a bit of fun for the kids. Then we did the lava flow trail, bring headlamps or an actual flashlight, not just your phone! It was a great bit of adventure to explore the lava tubes together. At the end of the trail there was a small mountain we climbed to get even more incredible views. This place is truly a gem.
  • So many different colors and rock formations! Lava flow trails, black cave where we've seen a bat, white rock mountain, red rock with red sand that looks like Martian landscape. Week maintained with nice parking lots and signs for trails. Really friendly and helpful stuff at the entrance. Beautiful park, would recommend it to any person if they love hiking and ready for little climbing!
  • Fantastic Utah State Park located so close to Saint George. Easily accessible, short and longer hiking trails through wonderfully different areas of red rocks, petrified sandstone & white rocks. Wonderful extra programs like stargazing parties and full moon walks with USP’s naturalist Phoenix. Informative, effective & fun! Bring the kids to the sand dunes or grab the mat for yoga. Love this place so much for all the beauty and accessibility throughout the year.
  • Gorgeous park just on the outskirts of Ivans/St. George area. Full of great views of yet some more wild rocks in Utah. Here's what you need to know. $ - 10$ for Utah Residents $15 for out of state visitors. 🚻 Restrooms & Picnic areas are abundant. I saw 1 camping site as well. Dog Friendliness- 🐕 are allowed on a couple of trails that are pathed paths like WHIPTAIL but not the best park for our furry friends that want to go off trail or off leash. 📱 Cell service is barely there in the middle of the park but you have a little bit upon entering and leaving park. Scout cave is a fun family hike. You'll also pass johnson canyon along the way, which is a great place for some bird watching.
  • Super kids friendly, we're here on spring break and it's not packed with ppl like I thought it would be. The staff at the gate have all been super friendly. It's clean and well maintained and has a lot of cool things to go look at. We took the kids to Jenny canyon and the lava tubes and my 4 year old did both hikes easily.
