Great place to camp and hike!

Beautiful park! The facilities were great, new and clean. Staff super friendly and helpful. Loved being here and getting to explore the quiet solitude along the great trails.

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.

Among the many beautiful places along Scenic Highway 12 is Kodachrome State Park. We stopped here to break up the drive and to see some of the 70 stone spires for which the park is famous.

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

Did the Grand Parade Trail which is mostly flat with some crossing of dry river beds. Takes about an hour. Interesting red rocks and you see a couple of the stone towers. You see a few more by driving up to the end of the park road.

I stopped by. I pretty much looked around in my Jeep. I did do a short hike to see an arch in the park. But, I was short on time so I did not do any hikes. I am sure if I were to hike. I would enjoy the park better. But, I did not so what I saw was... More

I am in love with Kodachrome Basin State Park! We wanted to visit the big parks in southern Utah and chose this state park as our base because it offered more amenities than the nearby national parks and is more dog friendly than those are. It's a beautiful park with great desert scenery, nice trails for hiking, a super nice... More
