This park is much less crowded than Zion and Bryce but just as beautiful and it's only $5 to enter! Take the short but beautiful Red Reef trail to the waterfall and (carefully!) climb up and around the waterfall to see the canyon beyond. Should...More

When I say "giant family" I am not referring to the acreage or diversity of the area, but the observation that every family we saw or met at this destination seemed to consist of a minimum 10 persons, pets not included. Must be a Utah...More

I hiked part of the Red Cliffs trail which is really more for bikes, but that led me to the City Creek trail which I loved. Amazing panoramic views and branch points to other trails including the Pioneer Hills trail. Miles and miles ...

If you love slot canyons, great photo ops, water, and fun you might like this place! Camping is available. Day use too! I live 10 miles from here and always bring out of town guests. They are always amazed.

After years of visiting St. George, I found this beautiful recreation area right off the freeway near Leeds. It's a recreation area with picnicking, short hikes, red rock climbing, and local history with easier access than most. This scenic playground could accommodate all levels of...More

We arrived in the evening at this remote campground at the end of a dirt road surrounded by beautiful red desert cliffs. It was our first camping night on a 9 night trip (that included both camping and hotels/motels), and we were happy we found...More

I took my two boys on a few close hikes which were easy to handle, but with out plenty of water could not have been done. Campsite was great and well maintained.

Could a bus make it to the parking area where the hiking trail begins? We will be in the area on March 6th.

It depends on the size of the bus. You will need to pay for a pass if you do not have a state park pass. You shouldn't have trouble with a bus though.

With no reservations at the Red Cliffs Campground, what is the likelihood of getting a campsite in mid April to early May? Do people tend to camp and then stay for the allowed 14 days (so not much turnover) ? Many flies, ticks, gnats etc that time of year? Can you do several of the hikes right from campground? Reliable potable water spigots?
