Quail Creek State Park

Quail Creek Utah State Park

Quail Creek State Park is a desert oasis iconic of the American Southwest. The park’s mild winters, vivid blue waters and dramatic red rock formations make it a popular year-round destination for photographers, boaters, and outdoor enthusiasts alike.

Location is Key

Quail Creek State Park is a small state park located perfectly between St. George, Utah and Zion National Park. The friendly staff and unique atmosphere offers you personalized attention which larger parks in the area don’t.

Home to some of the warmest water in the state, Quail Creek Reservoir is an extremely popular destination for boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, water skiing, wakeboarding, sailing, scuba diving, and swimming. Beach volleyball is a great way to dry off! Facilities include modern restrooms, developed beaches, a concrete boat launch ramp, and loading docks. An additional ramp for personal watercraft and small boats is adjacent to the campground. Fishing is always popular as well.

Mountainbiker in front of mountain lake

The park is located 14 miles north of St. George, Utah. From I-15, take Exit 16 and go three miles east on SR 9. Turn left on SR 318 and follow the road to the park entrance.
