We went for our family reunion and did a couple short hikes that were just perfect for the young kids and the older folks. Snow Canyon is beautiful and less crowded than the nearby National Parks. We really liked the sand dunes and Jenny's Canyon. Definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the St. George area.

Very close to city of St. George - easy beautiful drive. We had snow in Snow Canyon on Christmas day - so fun! Plenty of trails and places to climb some red rocks.

Spent our first day in St. George @ Zion National Park. Being off-season, Zion was easily accessible with only moderate visitor traffic. Second day we went to Snow Canyon State Park about 9 miles outside St. George. Beautiful rock formations and colored sandstone. Easy trails that even the toddler in the group could navigate with a little help from grandpa.... More

I got to do a hiking excursion here with an adventure group and two trail guides. If you're a first time hiker, like I was, it might be a bit of a challenge but it's certainly doable. It was raining and cold when I visited, but it was still a fun hike. The dirt/sand trail was muddy in places but... More

Great state park. Great for hiking, dog friendly, with gorgeous red rock formations for miles. We got a free pass from our hotel, Red Mountain Resort, to access the park by foot, and I am glad we did.

I always visit when in the area. A rugged mix of red sandstone, and old lava flows. I thought almost as good as Zion Park, but without the crowds. Scenery can be well appreciated from the road. Hiking allows better appreciation of terrain, and I enjoyed. But if hiking some "Easy" trails would be higher rated in other places, can... More

This park has something for everyone, petrified sand dunes, normal sandy areas, slot canyon, a natural arch. It is easy to spend 1-2 days here doing the many trails. The hikes are appropriate for all ages. Go early to have better parking options. $6 entrance fee is well worth it. A must see when in the Springdale area. Much better... More

We stayed here for 6 nights and enjoyed the hiking and biking. The staff working at the camp ground were very friendly and knowledgeable. The campground offers showers and drinkable water.

We had a rock climbing guide book that mentioned this as a possibility for short climbs good in Autumn weather so went to have a look, and found it to be so much more. The geology is extremely interesting with petrified sand dunes in juxtaposition with basaltic lava flows which have left exposed lava tubes. Being spelunkers as well as... More

My wife and I visited the Snow Canyon State Park in early November 2016. This park is a short drive from the center of St. George, and it is not to be missed. It has many hiking trails and visitors' center with staff who are friendly, informed, and very willing to help make one's visit to the park thoroughly enjoyable.... More
