Zion National Park
There is an abundance of hiking opportunities surrounding St. George. The three areas I enjoy hiking that are only a 20min drive outside the city include:
- Red Cliff National Conservation Area: Beautiful red rock formations along with slot canyons. (Pictured Above)
- Snow Canyon State Park: Great hikes and interesting geography (lava tubes)
- Gunlock State Park: Small park with a large but beautiful
There are a ton of campgrounds and RV parks located in and around St. George. They offer everything from basic dry parking to full RV hookups. A few of the places I have stayed at are:
- Red Cliffs Campground: Small beautiful campground located in front of a red rocked canyon (Pictured above)
- St. George Hurricane KOA: Located across the freeway from the Red Cliffs Campground.
- Snow Canyon Campground: Located in the middle of snow canyon surrounded by towing cliffs.
There are plenty of boondocking locations surrounding St. George. My favorite is the Hurricane Cliffs BLM land outside the city. There is also the Long Vallet Recreational Area located about 20minute from city center. Both are good places to boondock.
It’s a privilege to have St. George for our enjoyment, so please practice Leave No Trace principles.
