Went for “Southern Utah’s Largest Easter Egg Hunt”. I was hopeful from the ad, but let say I feel bad for my children! There was no organization. If you have ever seen World War Z, (the zombies) may give you an idea of what it was like. If you’re reading this and you were there, then you know. The groups were split I had a 3 year old and 6 year old both in different age groups. You were shuffled through a 4 foot gate to the are the eggs were. If you were lucky enough to be in the front, then you probably got some eggs. The three year old one took forever to get started. When they did start it, it was just parents in the front with their kids. The kids were not asked to be moved to the front. Let me tell you they warn you, you may get a little wet. But what they mean is if you want to get eggs be prepared to wade across the creek to get to the bank so you may have a chance of getting some eggs for your child. My 6 year old went next. This is were the true carnage started. Kids were stealing eggs out of my sons basket. Both my son and I ended up wet, cold, scraped, and bleeding I am not exaggerating! They definitely need to get some more organization! Might I also recommend you don’t separate the 5 year olds from their parents when there is running water near by!

Revisited and this time used the campgrounds that I had been wanting to use since my last visit. These sites are right along their brook/stream, where one may catch the crawdads/crayfish. Wonderful to listen to over night. All the 20+ sites are well shaded by the trees and tucked into the canyon. The rest room is by the pool and shower.
They have are currently upgrading the snack bar (the lava grill).

One needs to reserve a spot in advance, for camping. No room for RVs, but perhaps a tent trailer may fit. And unless you have you own fire pit, you will need to rent one. And they do sell fire wood, too.

The only thing that prevents a perfect five star review is their 'No pets' policy. So we had to take our two (yorkie and pekinese) little pups back home.... :(

It is a nice place. We went there for the first time and you need to know that where you park for the pool and restaurant is one place. Then you walk down a long downhill to get to the amenities. We tried, but being older we couldn't get down there to the pool and restaurant so we had to head back up the hill.
We mainly wanted to see it and to get a hamburger, but just couldn't.
There was a sign that said that one can drive down to drop off the others, but then how to get back to the car? It is nice I am sure, but if older, have someone younger go with you that can get up and down to and from the lot.

This is a gem of a place. For anyone wanting to rock climb this place has it all. Nowhere else in the world can you walk right up to a labeled route, have such a variety of climbs, and then follow it up with a dip in a pool. Not only is this place beautiful but you can always find a climb that’s shaded from the rays of the sun. I plan on making it a yearly trip at least for sure!

We had been going to Crawdad Canyon for 15 years. We climbed and used the pool. With the new owners the camping prices more than tripled, while not offering services that would justify this price increase. There's now a mandatory "Canyon Fee" of $9.50 for each person, whether you hike or use the pool, or just camp. Camping was $40 a night for a holiday weekend - steeper than any other full-service camping place. Open fires are not allowed now - you must rent a fire pit. For this price increase I would expect big differences - not additional fees and high initial cost. Count us out of future trips. Morris is probably rolling in his grave.

Hi, Dave, We’re not sure why you chose to camp with us this year when you’ve seen all the improvements that we’ve been making over the last couple years. Also, you booked your reservation back in April before you came this year so you were aware of our pricing before you booked and visited us. Our 31 campsites were completely booked when you visited our property and you are the only one who has complained. Most visitors thank us for keeping the property open to public and for all the enormous improvements we’ve made just over the past two years. To name a few...we completely rebuilt the pool, installed all new pool equipment, resurfaced/painted all buildings, ran WiFi down into the canyon, installed new high-end speaker system around the pool area, installed brand new volleyball/basketball/pickle ball court, remodeled bathrooms (new toilets, sinks, flooring, and added mirrors, paper towel/soap dispensers, new showers, installed water heater so our campers can have hot showers), the list goes on and on. Interestingly enough, one of our new campers who visited for the first time while you were here this past weekend, already made his 2nd reservation to visit us again in two weeks because he and his family were so impressed. We understand our property doesn’t fit everyone’s budget. We offer a premium experience, which may cost a few dollars more than your typical public campground. Many people have mentioned to us how the previous owner, Morris, would be so proud to see what we’ve done with the place. We wish you the best of luck finding another campground for you and your family.

According to their web site you will experience “Private Camping Nestled in a Private Canyon Overlooking the Santa Clara River.” However, this is anything but private. The campsites are right on top of each other. There is almost no differentiation from one campsite to another and they are incredibly close together. You could toss a balloon and hit your neighbors tent. The campsites are also right across from the very loud pool. The first morning of camping we were awoken by a very loud leaf blower and even louder music as they readied the pool. Little did we know the pool is not just for the camping resort. It appeared all 500 residents of Veyo were at the small pool the entire weekend. Because of the massive parking problems due to people visiting the pool, the owner of the resort put a lock on the gate that allows campers in/out of the campground (which is just feet away from the public access to the pool) and expected the imprisoned campers to come find him each time they needed to enter/leave the campground. He did eventually place a padlock on the gate and gave us the code after we protested the legality/liability of locking the campers in.
The pool water is lovely and the water temperature is wonderful. However, please read the information from their web site because when you pay for your campsite ($30-$40/day) you will also be charged $10 per person/day for access to the crawdad stream that you are camping next to and the pool. So your very small, loud campsite for 6 people will actually cost $90/day. Come expecting the pool to be VERY crowded and busy and not at all private. Because it was so busy you will wait up to an hour to get food from their “famous grill.” The cleanliness of the bathrooms (only 2 toilets in the women’s restroom) was terrible. I notified the office once that they were out of soap in the bathroom and three hours later it had still not been filled. To access the bathrooms (which are at the pool) from the campground you have to walk down a primitive, unlit trail, which is fine during the day but hazardous at night.
There are many wonderful, beautiful campsites in Southern Utah. Save your money and go somewhere else.

Veyo Pool has New Owners. It's not as clean anymore. Owners are not very pleasant or maybe just not happy. Prices I think are to high now. Don't know what the food is like there now because we did not eat there.

After a nice swim in the summer, it's a great place for a delicious hot dog or a juicy, fat hamburger.

This swimming pool is a really great place to go. It's very relaxing and a real fun place. There food is very good. There are activities you can also do there. For one, Rock Climbing up a cliff. You can also cook out there and Play in the creek.

Called to ask about their dog policy and was told as long as our dog was off the trails and the rock climbing it was ok. We drove all the way from California only to be yelled at by a nasty old man. He yelled at us about a truck that was not ours then told us to get out with our dog.

Later two teenagers came and told us we could leave our dog in the car (it was about 95 degrees) or leave him in a kennel they had up the road. Then they said if we had a crate he could stay in there.

We went to the store by the pool and asked the woman there if it was ok if we tied our dog instead. At this point she said no dogs no exceptions even if he was in a crate. I asked for a refund since it was them who gave me wrong information over the phone. She said "Oh no we don't give refunds" they wouldn't take responsibility for their giving me wrong information.

I was told that I would be escorted out if I didn't get my dog out. Super rude and inconsiderate. They weren't even willing to work with us.

AVOID THIS PLACE AND THEIR RUDE AND INCOMPETENT STAFF AT ALL COSTS!!!!!
