While not the same grandeur as Bryce, Kodachrome has its own beautiful views and offers opportunities to explore away from the crowds of the national parks.

Just left the Grand Canyon and pulled in here but due to the lack of interesting scenery we left almost immediately.

We camped at arch group camp site in this park. Easy access to bathroom and fire pit. Multiple flat and shaded areas to camp and good privacy. Busy season, I would recommend to make reservations.

Drove around on gravel/dirt roads and checked out views. Lots of photo ops. No need to wander from car. If you can great but you can see from car. State park so national park card no good still have to pay. $8 not bad

Spent and afternoon visiting the Kodachrome Basin State Park. It's a very small park, but literally 9 miles (by paved road) outside of the small town of Cannonville. Entrance fee was $8, but there are many hikes to enjoy while here. We did Angels Palace,...More

We will be driving along Hwy 12 in October from Capitol Reef to Zion. We were at Bryce many years ago. Should we either take a short side trip to Kodachrome Basin or one to Bryce?

I would have to recommend Bryce if you only have time for one of the two parks. The scenery at Bryce is of a unique nature and on a scale that is hard to match. Bryce is also well suited to driving through in that there is... More

Hi, I stayed one night last April. It is a camp - not a motel. Tents and RV's. Electric outlet in public facilities only. Scenery pays for everything.

Hi, I have no idea, we were there only for a few hours, but did not see any dogs. This is a Utah State Park, maybe their website has that info. Leo
