Greater Zion State Parks
State Parks in Utah often get overlooked because of the famous “Mighty 5” National Parks (Zion, Bryce, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and Arches) but Some of the best scenery and recreation in the country can be found in Greater Zion, specifically in the four state parks that span our landscape. Each park provides its own brand of outdoor recreation. From the crystal blue waters of Quail Creek Reservoir to the 16,000 acres of OHV riding on Sand Mountain, you’ll find just about any kind of outdoor activity you can think of.
It’s hard to find a place that offers the variety of activity available here. The area’s mild climate provides ideal conditions for year-round camping, hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking and fishing. Water sports start early in the year at the three reservoirs and the season extends late into the fall. The contrasting terrain is ideal for world-renowned adventure, and opportunities abound for both the casual and the extreme.
Make the most of your time in Greater Zion and discover some of the gems that these State Parks in Utah have to offer.
