This is just a great destination to see the beauty of what St George has to offer. The colors and rock formations are stunning. Come in the morning snd you may see rock climbers make their way up 300 ft walls just off the road as you drive thru the park. The hikes available thru this gem are numerous, offering... More

Fantastic hikes, both big and small, afford vistas from the tops of petrified rocks, as well as peeks into echo-ey canyons. One fellow hiker told us this was an area we might see (after a rain) ghila monsters, who spend 90 percent of their lives underground. Mixed feelings - half wanted to see one and half glad we didn't.

First time into the park, and we were not disappointed. Great hiking trails for all levels, and beautiful scenery! It can get hot, so don't forget provisions.

Hiking, climbing, or just relaxing on a picnic, the SC is incredibly beautiful and a multilayered experience. Colors, shapes, textures and the like, dominate this terrain that never seems to expire with yet more to see and experience. Treat you and yours to the Great American Outdoors, and forever be transformed!

Petroglyphs an be found among some of the lava gorge-like canyons; trails and open bouldering, spectacular views of desert and mountains. Definitely, get away from the road! Group hikes available.

First, the campground was impeccably maintained, super clean and set in an amazing red rock canyon that if you're lucky enough to visit you won't be disappointed. We hiked, road our bikes around annoyed the vistas. Went to dinner at Cliffside restaurant in Saint George so we didn't have to cook in the heat. The food was good and we... More

Visited Snow Canyon after the reccomendation from the Visitor Center (Rule #1 of visiting Utah - always visit the vistors center - they have fantastic reccomendations). This park has a small entrance fee, but is great to explore. Each stop seems geologically different from the last - from compacted sandstone to lava flows to sand dunes to slot canyons, this... More

We enjoyed the beautiful scenery at Snow Canyon State Park. Last summer we drove through in the evening around 6PM and saw two foxes in the distance. That was so cool that we decided that we would go and do some hiking this year. Stop by the visitor center and speak to the ranger so that you will know where... More

Very pretty drive with multiple areas to pull off for pictures and walking around. Really enjoyed the large sand dunes. Could easily spend hours here.
