Don't miss if in the area, as I think it is better than Bryce Canyon, but be careful at night as there are well camouflaged deer all over the roads

Dixie National Forest is a massive reserve, which fills the mind with nearly endless possibilities. We've camped here, hiked here, fished here, and had a few picnics in the area. Take your time, this space is so large you will not be able to see all of it in one trip. So plan now to come back often and visit... More

The Dixie National Forest is a fabulous place to visit. If you are going to this part of Utah, take the time to experience it's wild, unbelievable view of nature. Hike, picnic, enjoy. We have seen Osprey, mom and dad flying, in the nest babies crying, fabulous. Take binoculars for sure and a good telephoto lens. And... don't get too... More

We love Duck Creek Campground and take the entire family every year. I love that they have a little store there for anything that you may have forgotten. Also, you can shower at the lodge. They charge you very little to use their showers.

Nice trails on the west side of Bryce Canyon. There is a neat waterfall after a short trail just down hill to the east of Bryce Canyon.

Scenic byway 14 is beautiful. Stops at Navajo Lake and Duck Creek are a must! be careful if you drive at dawn or dusk; deer are around often!

A nice way to spend a few hours. Drive around on curvy mountain roads with spectacular views of the valley and surrounding mountains.
