    Snow Canyon State Park

    This is a delightful State park, with lots to do for the outdoor enthusiast that is relatively unknown, in SW Utah, not far from St. George.

    I met up with a buddy and we camped here Sept 10 & 11
    Snow Canyon SP is actually nearest to Santa Clara, UT, which is kinda a suburb of St George. It is a great place to base camp and explore all the nearby, crowded National Parks, and return to the serenity that is Snow Canyon.
    Zion, Bryce Canyon, Cedar Breaks are all easy day trips from here. The scenery and climate is fantastic. Supplies/meals are just 10 minutes away.
    There are showers, potable water, picnic tables, fire rings, but no WiFi in the park. Hiking trails, scrambling, rock climbing, exploring lava tubes are but a few of the things you can do here
    Cost was a very reasonable $16/night and the friendly staff suggested a site that was large enough to place our 2 tents on, close to the shower house/washroom and had a dynamite view.(site # 23
    Highly recommended!

    Re: Snow Canyon State Park

    Love these old posts brought back. Lots of memories of this area.

    Yes Snow Canyon is great. I lived in Santa Clara and St George back in the early 80s off and on for 3 years. Very warm in summers though so drink lots of water only.
    Ken, that looks like the same camp site my father in law stayed in one Easter bringing jumbo shrimp back from the Gulf of Mexico that we cooked up and devoured.
    My oldest son had his first ride at 1 week old when his mom wanted a ride on a beautiful January day there in Santa Clara. We put him in a front carry sack she wore.
    Don't miss Kolob Canyon while in the area. Just off the 15 north of St George.
    Utah has some of the prettiest and most diverse landscapes in this country. Very dry desert to very high alpine beauty and awesome riding to hiking unlike any other place.
