Quail Creek State Park consists of a decently sized reservoir surrounded by beautiful orange sand dunes. The campgrounds are nice and clean, all paved, and provide most amenities that one could need. This is definitely a place best utilized if you have ATV’s/UTV’s and a boat. But, if you don’t, there is still great beaches and places to cliff jump!
This campground is run by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It is open to church members and their families. There are two large camping lawns you can rent out large enough for family gatherings. The cost is $100/night but you take the whole lawn, which is quite large. There are two swimming pools which are fed by the hot mineral springs. One of the pools has little fish that like to come kiss your feet as you sit. They have tubes you can use to float down the river. Bathrooms and changing rooms are available but I didn't see a shower. No bikinis are allowed or other swimming attire showing the females midriff. If you can't make it to camp, they have open swim on Thursdays for $3 /person. The facility burned down some time ago and the church has been working hard to get it up and running again. Great fun place to bring your family and have a reunion
By fluke on my honeymoon we booked at this campground.! SO glad we did! My family and I absolutely LOVE it!! It’s fun of all sorts, kayaking, lake beach, boating, cliff jumping, bbq, off-roading everywhere!!! And the beauty that surrounds is unreal!!
Also a GREAT restaurant down in town called Main Street is a must!!
Beautiful campground in the midst of beautiful rock formations. The night sky is amazing from here, especially considering how close Vegas is with all its lights. A couple of bathrooms are shared while each site has a picnic table, shade structure and fire ring.
We had always heard how wonderful this place was and we made a point of staying here after a trip to Utah and Arizona. We stayed in late October, weather was very nice. Both of the campgrounds are in the red rocks and most sites you get to park your rig or put of your tent right in them. Some sites have electric service. This was (in October 2018) all first come first served, and it is VERY POPULAR. So, you have to wing it and show up and hope for a site, and this is after you pay to get into the park. It was so worth the visit, the environment is picture perfect everywhere. There are a ton of great hikes and if you take the road up past the visitors center you can hike “the wave” see photo below, and potentially see lots of big horn sheep, including males with the large head racks. This was such a great visit, I hope to go again, and spend more time.
This RV park is so new, construction is not done on some of the amenities like the pickle ball court and basketball court. That said, we were impressed with the roads (wide) and spots (33’ feet wide, 80’ long). Every site has 50 amp service. This park is truly big rig friendly. There is freeway noise, but during the summer, you can’t hear it when you have A/C on. GPS cannot find it yet, so call ahead to get directions. Reservation system allows you to pick your site ahead of time.
a short jaunt from las vegas. we took the scenic route through lake mead national park. drove out on a sunday and had sites a plenty to choose from. Loved the off grid camping with majestic rock formations surrounding our camp which felt like beach sand beneath our feat. secluded and spectacular.
PACK IN PACK OUT
Nice place but cold customer service Everything in this site is NOT ALOWED I understand we got to be clean neat and respectful of environment however this ppl exaggerated
This one fills up fairly quickly I went the first week of May 2019 I showed up around 10am and about 7 spot were open I set up a chair and payed for my spot. When I came back in the afternoon all were filled with many late comers making the rounds. The campground setting is neat with beautiful red rocks surrounding you. Bathrooms were clean and showers were available. Great state park with lots of fun hikes.
Nice site. Easy in and out. Close to the water. Store employees and park host nice and friendly. Pet friendly park. July camping is a little extreme. But spend the day by the lake and leave a/c running in trailer and you are good to good.
You can camp at the rv campground (I have not camped there) there are also group site available that are not in the sand. The rest of the camping is dispersed primitive camping. You can bring your rv or a tent and find a spot near the water. Keep in mind that you will be driving in sand and can easily get stuck.
Sandhollow state park is next to sand mountain sand dunes which makes the lake very popular for off road vehicles and can get noisy and dusty from them.
There is a store located at the lake that rents atvs, kayaks etc.
Its 25.00 a night for primitive camping there is water and a dump station available.
This campground provides a great place for groups and a central location for a lot of awesome things in Southern Utah. Each campsite has a firepit and picnic table. Nearby you have the convenience of civilization (St. George), the fun of Quail Creek Reservoir State Park, the world-class beauty of Zion National Park, and more. Also, if you're like me, you'll appreciate the showers, toilets and porta-pottys. No trowel or packing out your used toilet paper required. Also, if you have the group/budget for it, there's a large enclosed pavilion with full kitchen.
We camped down at a lower area just to make base camp, however all of this area is pretty similar so wherever you can find a decent spot to set up camp and there aren’t too many bugs. TAKE IT. I still think there’s bugs crawling on me at times.
Hiking in here we were expecting to see a few Joshua trees but on the route we took we could only find one! However just up the road is the old road that takes you up through the Joshua tree park. We couldn’t find much shade so we ended up packing out early, and the bugs/ants were getting on our nerves. Not planning on coming back.
We pulled into the campground at 1am on our way from California to Colorado. Just $20 for vehicle entrance with camping included. Woke up to an amazing red rock landscape of varying heights and climbability. HEADS UP: Park in spot #8-10 because they are shaded longer into the morning! We woke up to scorching heat in spot #4.
This is a tiny State Park that you can spend a couple hours, a day or a week exploring. Scenic drive is spectacular. Endless red rock formations and slot canyons to explore. I was here end of December, which is considered a popular time to camp here. It was busy. Comfortable camping. One of the campgrounds even has showers. Some really cool spots tucked deep in the rocks. My spot had a level gravel camping pad and a covered picnic table. Evidence of big horn sheep all through camp. Great hiking, views, petroglyphs, dog friendly. Hard to believe it's an hour from Vegas!
We were heading to camp at Lake Mead last minute with no reservations and were nervous about getting a spot, but we showed up at Echo Bay on a weekend and there was practically NO ONE there…to this day I still have no idea why, maybe it was a bit early in the season. Seems like it was pretty much just an overflow for those that did not get other sites, but it was totally fine to me.
Make sure to get a site under a tree with some shade. All sites had restrooms, trash, and water nearby.
There is not a great place nearby to get groceries, so make sure to stock up beforehand. There is a little convenience store at the site but pickings were very slim.
There's a boat ramp at the bottom of the road, and some nice places to walk/hike along the lake.
Only downside is that it is pretty remote and it was an hour drive to Hoover Dam and the main lake Mead recreation areas.
Beautiful views all around the campgrounds. Get there early, they fill up very very fast. I showed up at 9:30 and barely got a spot! Completely worth the early showing though! And good price at $10 to get in the park and $10 to camp per night!
Great campground, most campsites are trailer accessible or can fit multiple tents, super clean bathrooms. It would be 5 Stars from us if there would have been potable water, and more trails to hike, there was only one short one we found. Fishing was slow but we had fun.
We had such a great time last weekend at Sand Hollow State Park! Our friends were participating in the Sprint Tri so we drove up from Vegas to camp with them. It’s clean, beautiful and there’s plenty of space to spread out. There is a ton of razor/side by side activity so if you are looking for a super quiet campsite, this might not be the one for you although, come 11pm there was zero noise. The lake is so pretty and the water is warm right now! Enjoy!
Just returned from 2 nights, my only negative is the assignment of walk up sites. Arrived the first day in plenty of time only to get the group overflow section, being told we could get a regular site the next day. Showed up the next morning first in line to only be told we want to accommodate the folks staying 2-3 nights not one more. Decided to stay in the what basically is a parking lot for the group site. So note make sure everyone is on the same page for site assignment. Okay the positive it actually is a beautiful camp ground and state park. All levels hiking, climbing etc. Clean facilities and friendly staff. Next time I’ll make advanced reservation since the walk up part is a mess.
We stayed at a group site without hookups for a week in mid-May and had a great time! The park was not crowded at all. There are trails for all SxS/quad level riders, including dunes and rock crawling. Awesome views at the Top of the World! The lake was perfect for swimming, floating, paddle boarding, and kayaking. We heard about the swimmers itch but didn’t have any issues (showered after swimming). The bathrooms were large and clean with warm showers. Water and dump station are right by the entrance. The location was close to Walmart and other stores. We also drove about 40 minutes to Springdale and Zion National Park.
It's a very clean campground. My wife and i set up camp on an early Saturday morning and for the rest of the day we enjoyed the weather and good conversation with the people camping up and down the road. The facility was well taken care of and have some great views especially during sunset. Looking forward to another visit there later this summer. H20 at each camp, restrooms only a few hundred feet from our site. The marina, RV camps and C-store were all operated by super friendly people.
