Beyond the Park You Know

Welcome to Greater Zion

Put simply, Greater Zion is a destination a cut above the rest. With striking red rock cliffs, towering, carved canyons, sweeping vistas, and deep, cool waters, Greater Zion is a colorful adventureland brimming with over 2,400 square miles of epic outdoor pursuits. Here, the Mojave Desert, Colorado Plateau, and the Great Basin converge to make for some of the most stunning scenery in the world.

Come immerse yourself in natural wonders and be reminded of what it’s like to be curious, carefree, and completely in awe of the world around you. Home to Zion National Park — the second most visited park in the United States — Greater Zion begs to be explored. While simultaneously immense and intimate, Greater Zion pushes the boundaries of possibility. It’s a destination where beauty meets luxury, where urban elegance complements feats of unparalleled human achievement, and wild and kaleidoscopic landscapes paint the background.

Zion National Park

With over 229 square-miles, more than 35 hiking trails, cliffs towering more than 2,000 feet above the canyon floor, and more species of plants than the Hawaiian Islands, Zion National Park is a pretty incredible place. It’s an environment of magic and natural fascination that will challenge what you thought of nature’s capabilities. Coming to Zion National Park means living greater, experiencing greater, and being inspired to a greater plane.


Gunlock State Park

Gunlock Reservoir and Gunlock State Park lies just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolitan areas of St. George. With incredible views and warm water, this remote lake is the perfect spot for a day in and around the water. Bring your own water toys or rent onsite.

St. George Area

Quail Creek State Park

Equal parts refreshing and beautiful, clear, green water dominates Quail Creek State Park. Red, white, and orange cliffs surround the shore, and are set against the powerful Pine Valley Mountains as a backdrop. Greater Zion offers a long season for playing on or in the water with high temperatures in the 80s or above from May to October.

Hurricane Valley

Snow Canyon State Park

Welcome to Zion National Park’s little brother, Snow Canyon State Park. Criminally underrated and overlooked because of its proximity to Zion, Snow Canyon is a world all its own. Towering sandstone cliffs make you feel small, and rolling petrified sandstone dunes make you feel like you may have gone to a whole new planet.

St. George Area

Sand Hollow State Park

In the middle of the Greater Zion desert are several water oases, and Sand Hollow State Park is one of those crowning jewels. Whether it’s summer or our mild winters, this 20,000-acre park offers a little of everything – from sitting on the soft, orange shore to diving into emerald green waters to tearing it up on the sand dunes. Sand Hollow is a great destination in and of itself, but also fabulous for a day visit.
