We stayed in Saint George (before heading onto Bryce Canyon). We had a few hours before check in and received great visitor info from the Dixie Center in town and they suggested Snow Canyon State Park. (Short drive through Saint George) Amazing to see these beautiful mountains that change with the sun and clouds. There are easy walks and great... More

This is a stunning setting at a great Utah State Park just outside of St. George. That being said, the campsites leave a little to be desired. Stayed in one of the full hookup campsites at Snow Canyon SP. You are side-by-side with your neighbor with about 8 feet between vehicles. You can hear your neighbor snoring. There are widely...

It's a beautiful park! We brought our lunch and spent a couple hours, so close to St George, and it has wonderful views. We only did one trail but really enjoyed the scenery, worth the time!

We stayed nearby and after driving nine hours to get here we didn't want to get back in the car and drive the next day. Snow Canyon was a ten minute drive so off we went. This place has petrified sand dunes which are amazing to see and to hike on. We spent three hours hiking and loved it all.... More

What an amazing experience for a family! So many picturesque hikes. Take the Butterfly trail to the two lava tubes. Bring lots of flashlights! So fun. Then do the Overlook up the petrified sand dunes. The Pioneer Names hike is cool. Lastly, let the kids play in the sand dunes. They will love it. I'll post some pics...

A great place to visit. We went with our young children and teenagers. This is perfect for all of them. Young children loved the views, formations, and sand dunes. Our older children loved the climbing trails, and views. Everything was clean, safe, and not too rigorous.

For only $6 you can drive through this beautiful state park. The scenery seems to change with each curve in the road. There are many spots to pull over and take pictures. We found ourselves wishing we had our bikes with us. I'm not sure why this isn't a National Park. It's spectacular. Next time we will bring a picnic... More

We love to bring our bikes and ride down the paved path. We drop off at the top & park at the bottom so we don't have to pedal back up the hill. We'll stop along the way and do som hiking as well. Beautiful and relaxing.

We checked out Trip Advisor prior to camping in Snow Canyon and there were not a lot of reviews about the camping area. The hiking and biking reviews were spot on. Gorgeous, amazing scenery. We did not hike in to the park much because we did not want to leave the dog in the RV. Dogs are only allowed on... More

Be sure to visit this wonderful State Park, which is sadly overshadowed by the National Parks, but is no less spectacular. We went on walks in which we were able to climb petrified sand dunes, climb into lava tubes, and up huge cinder cones. All so impressive and really wondrous.
