Spent the last day of our vacation hiking here after visiting the south and north rims Grand Canyon, glen canyon, lake Powell, Bryce, and Zion. We all (kids 10, 13, 14) loved our day here. We started at the visitor center ("bookstore" at the campground) and asked about hikes, etc. Jordan (asst park ranger/director) was fantastic and helpful. He took... More

Did a couple of easy hikes here. "Lava Tube" trail and "Three Ponds" and almost had the place to myself. Okay it was a hot July day, but get there by 7 am and you can see a lot before it gets too hot. Of the two trails Lava Tube was easier to find your way but Three Ponds was... More

We had an extra day in St George to burn. This State Park was recommended by a local. We loved it, perfect for the day with beautiful red rocks.

The entire family went on this hike. We took the Hidden Pinyons trail and got some great pictures with wonderful vistas with the family. Our kids are as young as seven years old. Bring plenty of water, because (depending on the time of year), you will need it. Also, watch out for rattlesnakes, although we did not see any, it... More

Snow canyon is only busy on holiday weekends. Any other time you practically have the place to yourself! There's a mixture of sand, sandstone, and basalt (lava rock). You can explore the lava tubes, hike up sandstone to one of many overlook points, or enjoy an easy walk on west canyon road. There's little to no shade and it is... More

The park has red sand dunes, short trails which leads you to a nice canyon, red petrified dunes that you can climb on, a nice camp ground, and red cliffs with cliff hangers on. We totally enjoyed a visit to it. Try to go when it's not too hot. The sand is burning.

There weren't very many visitors when we were there and was only a little ways from St. George. It was a nice half day outing and hike through one of the trails, which encompassed various rock formations and vegetation.

Snow Canyon State Park is one of my favorite places in Southern Utah. There are a wide variety of great hikes and my favorites are the Johnson Arch Trail, 3 ponds (during the wet seasons) and the Padre Canyon Saddle. Most of all, I love cycling up and down Snow Canyon road - it's perfect early in the morning and... More

We stayed with our campervan on one of the dry sites for two nights in late June. The dry sites are on sand, and only suitable for small campervans and tents but are quite private and well-located, surrounded by bushes with amazing scenery. The full RV sites are tightly packed and don't have the same views. The toilet block has... More

Less travelled red rock and volcanic rock state park with few visitors. Numerous and varied hiking trails from easy to strenuous. A nice respite from the crowds of Zion and Bryce with just as nice scenery and facilities. A must see if in St George. We only had two hours to spare in this park. Could have stayed here an... More
